1-4; these are non-issues for me so I suppose I'm against them all, but I'm not fussed either way.
5; I do agree with the new neo-pro definition (including age limit).

1. Keep at 2 years
2. Optional 2nd year
3. Con.I don't like this draft order
4. No restriction for neo-pro trade
5. Agree with this if itís with an age limit

Decision time:

1. 1-year contracts for 1st-rounders

Pro: Tom, Joel, myself
Con: Ace, Fleur, Daniel, Erkka, David, Steve, Bryan, Luis, Kristian, Martin, Chris, David
Undecided: Jack (not fussed either way)
Decision: no change.

2. Optional 2-year contracts for 2nd-rounders

Pro: Tom, Martin, David, Fleur, Daniel, Steve, Bryan, Luis, Kristian, Chris, David
Con: Davy, Joel, myself (luck-dependent)
Undecided: Jack, Ace (proposing a non-guaranteed variant instead)
Decision: yes. Rules updated.

3. Snake draft order

Pro: Fleur, Joel, Steve, Daniel, Bryan, David, Chris (all citing fairness)
Con: Martin, Luis, Kristian, myself (bad teams need all the help they can get)
Undecided: Jack
Decision: yes. Rules updated.

4. Restriction on neo-pro trades
Players drafted less than 12 months ago are not eligible for trades.

Pro: Ace, Fleur, Steve (against the spirit)
Con: Kristian, Luis, Tom, Joel, Bryan, David, myself (more strategic)
Undecided: Martin, Jack, Chris
Probable outcome: highly unlikely.

5. A brand new definition of neo-pro
"Neo-pro is a rider who never spent an entire season with a WT/ProConti team IRL."

Pro: Daniel
Con: Luis
With an age limit: Fleur, Tom, Joel, Bryan, Kristian, Jack, Martin, Chris, David
Undecided: myself
Decision: yes, u23. Rules updated.

Let's not forget 500 auctions = 500 times a moderator has to move the thread & add the rider to the team sheet.
So to convince me, there would have to be more people willing to go all over again AND - like you mention - a couple of very cool new rules to separate it from the main game. I'm all ears :)

I thinked a bit about what could be a new concept and I came to this idea:

1) Auction for, say, 20-25 riders each team. Everybody must fill every spot on the team. Budget 5000;
2) You choose your team hierarchy. 5 leaders that will score 100% of their cq-world-tour-game-points, 5 free role riders rthat will score 80%, 10 gregarios that will score 50 or 60%.
3) at the end of the season the team that wins get an extra budget, the last teams loose some budget. BUT the game gets harder for the winner and easier for the last spots. The winner only gets 4 leaders for next season, and the last spots get 6 or 7 leaders from their 25 rider team that will score 100%.

What you think?

You might want to talk to Ace or join the discussion over at LBB. He wanted to run another auction game, so maybe you guys want to join forces?

btw I don't understand point 3. Why make it both easier and tougher for the winner? people will get confused and pulling a bit in both directions won't have a huge effect. My instinct would be to either make it just tougher, or forget the extra rule altogether...

I'm happy there's another auction game in the pipeline, and I think Ace's concept is good.
Anyway, I can help on that new game.

  • Yeagg: The Steelers QB did his job. He played well enough to not lose them the game. The rest of the team played perfect
    October 14, 2019, 01:38:47 AM
  • indiansnation: to many eird losses today
    October 14, 2019, 01:43:37 AM
  • indiansnation: shure hell didnt think dallas was going to loose to jets
    October 14, 2019, 01:43:57 AM
  • Brent: Lots of individuals on Dallas.  If they pay Dak the $40M/yr that he wants,that will be the end of them.
    October 14, 2019, 01:45:58 AM
  • Yeagg: Dak has been playing well
    October 14, 2019, 01:49:03 AM
  • indiansnation: i agree with brent he is good but not worth that kind of money
    October 14, 2019, 01:53:50 AM
  • Brent: He's not $40M/yr good.  they they will have 20% of their cap tied up in one position.
    October 14, 2019, 01:54:56 AM
  • Yeagg: Honestly idk BooYah! about football. I just play fantasy football for fun
    October 14, 2019, 01:56:44 AM
  • Yeagg: I'm still trying to figure out how I have Dak Prescott, LeVeon Bell, Austin Ekeler, Phillip Lindsay, DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Thomas, Mike Williams, AJ Green, Darren Waller, Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Khalil Mack, and Blake Martinez on one of my fantasy teams and I am 3-3
    October 14, 2019, 01:59:13 AM
  • indiansnation: yeagg wait till aj green comes back he will help your team so much
    October 14, 2019, 02:01:04 AM
  • indiansnation: u got a very good team yeagg
    October 14, 2019, 02:01:28 AM
  • Brent: Same concept especially if you consider NFLC.  The NFL salary cap is the same as our $188.2M year.  The difference is RL football you have to pay offensive lineman and most teams carry 6-8 with left tackle being about the highest paid non QB position.  That was until recently, but they still get paid.  So if you pay your QB $40M/yr, your LT $15M/yr and the rest of your line a total of about $25-35M year, that could be $90M on 6-7 players.  You still have to field all of your skill positions and defense for the other $100M.

  • Yeagg: I should be better than a .500 team
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:00 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I have a couple redraft leagues where I should be better than I am.
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:36 AM
  • Yeagg: Isn't that where drafting comes in handy
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:49 AM
  • Brent: Exactly
    October 14, 2019, 02:03:34 AM
  • Yeagg: I was referring to the cap space comment in case you didn't know
    October 14, 2019, 02:04:38 AM
  • indiansnation: i think its harder guessing what yound guys will produce in nfl than baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:05:31 AM
  • Brent: The Cowboys got lucky with La'ell Colllins.  He was 1st round talent, but fell out of the draft to UDFA due to false allegations that he was cleared of. So they got one of if not the best OT from that draft for peanuts.  Eventually he will need to be paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:06:28 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, the draft is huge and also hitting on UDFAs.  Teams have to develop and then keep their own talent or they'll go broke and end up in salary cap hell.
    October 14, 2019, 02:07:09 AM
  • Yeagg: So basically just like baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:10 AM
  • indiansnation: yep nfl u gotta watch how much u pay look at browns they are going to have that problem in 2021 they have alot of good tallent thats going to need to get paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:13 AM
  • Yeagg: And no way Brian. Baseball has 40 rounds and still most of those guys never even sniff the MLB
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:33 AM
  • Yeagg: More 1st round picks are bust than even play a full season
    October 14, 2019, 02:18:02 AM
  • Brent: They also have between now and then to figure out who will be resigned and who will be replaced and don't they still have quite a few 1st round picks between now and then?
    October 14, 2019, 02:24:21 AM
  • indiansnation: Hey if u have a top notch gm with a great scouting staff u can make any player u draft be great. Look at Boston their minors sick why is that because they suck at drafting. Know look at Tampa and indians and miami they have pretty dang good minors especially I diane look at who they had pitching this year bauer got traded, and they lost 2 of their sp most. Of the yr
