and the FA chaos begins

good luck

if anybody has questions about anything please fire away

and what do you all think about removing the restriction on trading the 3rd round pick... would it give the Charlie-o award more or less value?

and almanac is updated just click on the online almanacs ------------>

and does anybody want to be an admin on the facebook page. I keep forgetting to update it with stuff

 added a link for an images zip. i'll update whenver somebody requests. just copy over your image file

I'll bite...

I think allowing trading of  3rd round picks will not affect the value of Charlie-O.  That said I don't think it will harm it and will help promote trades in general so I support allowing. 

Charlie-O is not generating a substantial change in owner behavior (influencing contracts/purchase decisions).  The prizes/penalties for financial decisions would need to be upped to make it a substantial factor in league play. 

Look at first and last of the  third round picks and you'll see that the difference isn't worth giving up a 2-3 star player in offseason bargaining. 

How about something completely different as a motivator?  Like crafting 1st, 2nd, and 3rd "prizes" as Charlie-O rewards and using the international FA system to deliver.   Can you easily build/advertise//disperse a 3*(1st), 2.5*(2nd), and 2*(3rd) international free agent as the Charlie-O drivers?   Maybe I have the star values a 1/2 star off one way or the other but we want influence without dominance I think. 

Then 3rd round would just be normal third round.

As far as the Facebook page goes, I will consider it after I get back from my two-day trip to see my nephew's graduation.

I keep forgetting to come back to this, I am always doing something else when I think about it.

I am open to re-thinking the reward, in the original version of the CLB we over-powered it. so it's a delicate balance of finding enough incentive vs. making the reward too great.

but we have now seen losing teams take advantage of the formula so maybe a little more power to the process, so to speak, is actually called for

I really need to get off my ass and talk about this stuff in a video
