Re: Redszone Dynasty League 2010 -- Season 2
I apologize to those of you that complained about not getting a chance to express your views on the draft structure before the voting started. I realize some people have a sour taste in their mouths over this. I understand your concerns. Unfortunately the issue blew up only two days before the draft and we did not have time to go through the discussion and voting phases like we did last year on the other rule changes. This is exactly why the system is set up to consider these issues in the late summer when there is plenty of time to give everyone a chance to discuss their viewpoints before the vote. We had an established procedure in place and it was not followed this time and it has led to hard feelings. As commissioner I feel responsible for this and I will do my best to make sure it doesn't happen again.
Unfortunately in this case the system was bypassed without authorization and only one person got to state his views on the issue. This will not happen again. As we did last year, if anyone has any ideas for rule changes please send them to me. I will compile a list. When the time comes to consider potential changes I will fairly explain both sides of the issue and open up the discussion for all to contribute, and then we will have a public vote.
The vote tally for the proposed rule change so far appears to be 7 votes for a straight draft and 3 votes for a snake draft. I am going to officially declare this draft will be a straight draft.
I am sorry if you disagree with this verdict but I had to make a decision and chose to go with the majority even though the process was not entirely fair.
Hopefully we can get past this problem and everyone will still enjoy the draft and have lots of fun during the season. In my humble opinion the draft change is a minor issue that won't have much effect on our league, but only time will tell. So let's get on to the fun stuff...
