A bit similar to our current league, no?
If I understand correctly, the main difference is keeping some riders forever.

Similar but with 1-3 year contracts, and the ability to re-sign up to five riders riders each year. No drops. Works best as a snake draft.

Perhaps not different enough from the current league. :toth:

I like the simple idea of a league where we have a snake draft and mae our teams that way.

Itīs easy and simple, but still fun.

 :iatp:

But just to mix it up a bit, you could have 'prime rounds' in the draft - like cycling crit's have prime("preem") laps - where you'd sign riders on 2 year 'prime' contracts. These rounds could be based on prime numbers. 

The prime numbers between 1 and 30 are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29 - so if we have 30 man teams this would result in;

Year 1 - 30 rounds, 10 'prime' contracts.
Year 2 - 20 rounds, 8 'prime' contracts.
Year 3 onwards - 22 rounds, 8 'prime' contracts.

All riders on the same value contract so no budget to get confused with, but it requires more thought than a straightforward draft.


p.s. I have given this idea less than an hours thought, so if there's a major flaw don't be afraid to tell me.  :toth:

Ladies?

Teams of 10, budget 2,500. Same rules as the men.

Yes - great idea.

Winner gets a vacuum cleaner?

But seriously, I suspect not many of us are completely au fait with the women's scene. I know a very small amount but certainly not much. It would also show our support for women's cycling, and, at the same time would not detract in any way from the main game we are playing.

Clearly we'd all need to do a bit of homework over the next couple of weeks, but if we said we'd start next weekend...

CQRanking Cycling Fever and PCS would be good starting points, 2016 could be a season of learning and it would be something we could continue/expand next year and beyond.

The more I think about it, the more keen I am.

 There are only 2 or 3 ladies who score very much points.

I could work, but I know form another league where we have a ladies section, that most of the ladies only score a few points.

But if we try it I'm in...

  • Jonathan: A team that wishes to remove a player from the 40-man roster and place him in the minor league system first needs to place him on irrevocable outright waivers. The team may not pull him back if another team claims the player. Other organizations have 48 hours to make a claim.  If the organization does not specify the type of waivers, this is the default.
