I've had a couple of random ideas about the league, and Curt thought I should post them over here.  So just my 10 cents on a couple of things . . .

1.  I'd like for us to come up with ways to play up division titles and make them more meaningful.  I think it's pretty cool how we have North, South, East and West divisions that are pretty well aligned with where we're all geographically located, and it seems like there ought to be ways to promote division rivalries and have some bragging rights based on that.

I believe CBS allows you to give out awards for teams besides just awarding the League Champion, so if we handed out awards on CBS for division title winners, I think that would be one good way to promote it.  There might be some other good ideas the Circle or someone else can come up with, but that's one thought I had.

I just think there's a lot of opportunity to have something cool going on if we have some stability in the four divisions we have and if we can start promoting division or sectional rivalries.  Just like in the NFL where winning the NFC North has some special bragging rights to go along with it, you can have the same type of thing going on with the BBFL South or BBFL West, etc.  Plus it gives more teams something to play for late in the season if, for instance, the League Champion pretty much has the league wrapped up with a month or two to go in the season.

2.  I'm honestly not a big fan of trading future year's draft picks.  It's just encouraging teams to play for future years instead of the current season, and as confusing as it already us keeping up with what current year picks have been dealt, throwing future year draft picks in the mix just makes it even more confusing.  Trading for 2015 picks before the 2014 season has even started just doesn't seem to be all that healthy of a thing for the league either.  I think that's something that probably needs to be re-evaluated at the next winter meetings.

I like the giving more weight to the division winner idea.  I'm sure there's a pretty good reason why since this league has been around a while, but, why no playoffs?  A month with 2 2 week rounds a-piece would work.  I know it might be unfair to a guy like boris who blows away the field circa 2013 to lose then, but that happens all the time in real baseball.  Anything can happen then.  Though I guess thinking on it, that cuts the season a month short for the rest of the guys.  But they can still play as they normally would.  Gets pretty slow around that time anyhow.

Would be neat if there was a way to incorporate a playoff system that was fair and should not include anyone south of the Miami.... :)

I also agree that trading picks a year ahead of time is not sound for the league and should be discontinued immediately. We all know that things come up and people have to drop out most every year and it just isn't fair for someone to step into a situation where the previous owner traded picks a year ago. Circle I encourage a hard look at this immediately and even though trades have been made let's stop this from happening in the future ASAP.

I can see how tradin picks for next seasons draft. But if one season is over in this case the 2013 season. Then I don't see why I should not be able to trademarked 2015 pick to help me for the 2014 season. Now for still in the middle of the 2013 season then yes I can see why wouldn't trade the 20 15th big to make my team better. But you have to have a way to make your team better and that's what I did with the pick up mate. So at what point could UVN trade a traffic. Do I have to wait till after the trading deadline of 2014 season the traded 2015 hey. Do I have to wait till after the end of the 2014 season to make a draft pick or just wait to watch the draft to do a 2015 pig. Although St. prevent me from making Martin better right now.  My team right now has no chance of winning. I have the first round picks and I don't think my team would be able to win this year. So saying that I have no reason to play for this year while technically true. I am trying to get players who I think will be better in a couple years. The teams on the bottom have to play for future years. This year I'll still be making trades be doing things try to make my team better. But I know my team can't win it all this year. I now I'm trying to make my 13 is best I can for next year's draft. The second round pick or something equivalent is not going to make a break 18. So Tradeway future draft picks needing to be stopped immediately it would have to be a lot more discussion about when that line would be. And if it's after the draft I don't see why getting my 13 better right now for the a drive picking next year Straugh would make that big of a difference before after the draft.    i'm doing this speak and text because I'm driving. Sorry about that I'm sure the be some words are wrong. But at least will be spelt right.

If we want to do things to help with the season. May we can look in a way of punishing people who have players that are on the DL for a lot of the year before they change. It seems like once it is a parent who's going to win owners don't do anything with 13's. Some of us will continue to do things to the Iantha try to improve their teens all the way to the end of the season even though they know they can't win but they can make the team better for next season. I think that's more of a concern then trading draft picks. Having owners that are active that are willing to respond to traves they're keeping their minor leaguers when they are brought up brought up having people who have people that are on the DL letter still in the active roster moved. Things like that trying to get the best he didn't they can. And I'm sorry for the tirade. But when someone is telling me that I can try to make nothing better right now Pinconta rubs me the wrong way. I understand the concept but after the 2013 seasons over then I don't see why you can't trade a 2015 pick you do it during the 2014 season. And no one says a word. So I guess my biggest thing is when would the time that you could trade a draft pick be. If you make a rule saying you can't trade hey 2015. Fill a certain time and that limits what I can do with my team. I feel that after the 2013 seasons over then you should be able to trade a 2015 brown pick which makes my team better this year. So I guess I'm saying then after a seasons over you can trade future pics as needed. It's 2013 season is over then you try to 2015 round pick. Because like I did this year is making my team better this year and a future years I don't ever play to lose are coming Lastre whatever always try to make the best team I can.

Knowing its speak and text helps, because now I can try to decipher it phonetically.

Before, I had no clue what "traffic" was doing in there...now I know it's "draft pick".

Fun!
