  • BDL 2017 Winter Meeting

    This will hopefully not take too long just trying to hash out a few things before we migrate.

    1. Increase BDL Salary Cap from $165,000 to $170,000.

    Topic #1 Salary Cap Increase from $165K to $170K.
    Approved (10) : SirA, MD4L, Pheltz, XMad. PR, Bcb, Taylor, Dingo, JLash, Whicker
    Declined (3) : Blue, Ted, Footsy

    2. Nominate and create the Rules Committee that was agreed upon during the 2016 Summer Meetings.

    Topic #2 Confirm JLash, Ted and Bcb for Rules Committee.
    Approved (9) SirA, Pheltz, Rags, Jlash, Dingo, MD4L, XMad, Whicker, bcb


    3. Confirm positions for 2017. Draft, Schedule, Roster Sheet, Game Threads, Waivers.

    4. Confirm Owner commitment to a Migration to a different Platform for BDL. Set a date for Migration. See about consolidating some of the threads to minimize footprint on another website.

    5. Discuss possible schedule change to remove Week 17 concerns for the Bizzbowl. This could involve anything from starting a week early to shortening the playoffs/playoff teams/Bye's. Discussion necessary.

    6. Expand 3 Up and over options (MD4L).

    Anything else that seems relevant is up for discussion but this is more for cleaning things up and getting our ducks in a row so we move forward with a clear goal of what the BDL Future will be.

      1. Why increase only $5,000 more?

        Teams should have an ability to utilize a 3 UP & Over more than one time. I support having a 3 UP & Over system which allows teams to trade a player and sign one from another team.

          We haven't had an increase in a while and the new NFL Cap is supposed to reach upwards of $165M this year, which is where we are at now. No need to go too far overboard IMO and it's the number I believe Blue proposed.

          $5,000 is probably a good increase for the next 2 years.

            I'm going to vote No on increasing the cap, at least for now. Looking at the cap space spreadsheet, I don't see a huge need to increase our cap.

            Did we decide on a number of people for the Rules Committee? I would nominate JLash, TedLavie, and bcb to start with.

            No opinion on the positions. Anybody want to hand off the stuff they were in charge of this past year?

            Football's Future and Reddit are both ultimately fine with me. I will go along with whomever has strong opinions there.

            What are the issues with the BizzBowl date as-is? I don't have a particular problem with it, but evidently other people do?

              Currently the Rule does allow both teams to Include a UFA player in a 3 Up and Over. Why limit it to 2/3 of the 3 Ups? We could simplify things and make it 85% it you sign your own player or 100% if you trade for another.

                I'm opposed to having 3 Up and Over at all. I will in no way support broadening it.

                  I support this. This should be implemented during the winter meetings.

                    OK I'll add it to the docket. We should probably take things one at a time though.

                    The reason I support the Salary Cap Increase is because we've tried to create a system with Higher Salaries to somewhat mirror the increases in the NFL. More teams bumped up against the cap limit this past year than ever before.

                      Brian Winters just got a 4/$32mil deal IRL. That should give an idea of where RL contracts are going. But Jets, so who knows.

                          Yeah but that should only be usable once, 3ups are mostly for keeping your talent not trading assets away for other people's talent.

                          As far as Football's Future or Reddit, Football's future would ultimately suit our needs better (and solve our biggest problem) but Reddit gives us 100% control.

                          I'd suggest a mixture of the two of some combination.

                              Normally I'd say we should be as close to the NFL salary cap as possible, But with the expanded rosters of 70 (Which IMO is a little too much) we should keep it where it is.

                              In fact I think we should reduce the Roster limit from 70 to 63 (53 Man RL roster+ 10 man practice squad) but that's just my two dimes.
