I'm fine with both 15 or 20 protected riders, however if it's free choice I'm afraid many people will choose to protect 20, even if their team doesn't warrant it. Humans are just egoistic like that. :P

Yep for me it was clear that you have to have at least one rider available, so taht you can't choose the i protect 20 riders option if you have 20 or less riders in your team.....

After a somewhat carefull analisys to my team, I was able to protect 15 riders, and didn't had that much trouble doing it.

I believe 15 riders should be enough for each team to protect, just prevent Blanczy from selection more than 1/6 (rounded down) from each team, meaning, I have 30 riders, so he would be able to select 5 riders from my team. If I had, for instance, 20 riders, he would be able to select 3.

Let's not go that far. It's gonna be 1 rider from each team, otherwise those who signed the smartest contracts would be punished the most.

Another alternative: free up at least 1/3 of your team.

21 => 14 protected
24 => 16 protected
27 => 18 protected
30 => 20 protected

I like the 1/3 option even more now that I realize he is not starting from scratch.

Actually, I'm against this idea altogether.

I'm going to go and buy some 30k people on the free list in order to protect my team now.

My team that not only comprises some of my favourite riders, but took hours of deliberation, careful research and LOVE to choose each one.

I feel as if I have been asked which of my children to pick in a situation where a fire would definitely claim one of them.

Time, and the full force of nature are both against me.

THIS IS A BAD IDEA.

Let him find new favourite riders, like starting with Hartlepool United on Fantasy Football. Give him a new challenge.
