Huh? Not sure what you mean here, Johnny. I don't play baseball, so I don't know what the difference would be.

The rules on the website still indicate that the Free Agent market doesn't open until AFTER Week 1:

9. Bidding Time Frame: The bidding process will be held each week after Week 1 and continues through the end of the NFFC regular season.

Am I missing something?

Shrink Attack,

Greg made a post earlier, that all satellites will have their F/A Pickups start the week before week 1. Just in case anyone drafted a guy in June or July that is out for the season.

Yes, but does that apply to the Main Events and Supers? I doubt it...

WELL THE MAIN EVENTS ARE THE SATURDAY BEFORE THE THRUSDAY GAME ANYWAY.

SO MUCH ISN'T GOING TO CHANGE BETWEEN DRAFT SATURDAY AND THE THURSDAY GAME.

IT MIGHT BUT I THINK IT WOULD BE RATHER MINISCURE.

VERSUS WHEN YOU DRAFT A SATELLITE TODAY. THINGS LIKE BENSON GET RELEASED. CHRIS HENRY SUSPENDED FOR THE SEASON HAPPENS SO THERE IS MORE ROOM FOR CHANGE THERE.

Would an additional round or two be added for early DC formats as well?

Main concern for this is probably more of a MDC question since Jules had to add Vick as a "placeholder" when searching for a player who had not been added to their queue yet. I would like to at leat see that fixed somehow as it does not seem right.

On that note, has any formal request been made to MDC to update their player pool, weeding out players such as both Vick's, Tiki, and adding all rookies?

Greg must be really busy, for not responding yet...But I'll fill you guys in from what I remember.

This rule for free agents only applied to satellite leagues. No pickups for any live events, before AFTER week 1 games are played.

When the first F/A pickups are done, the week before NFL starts, there will have been one game played already(Thursday, the day BEFORE the first set of satellite F/A pickups...That game's players can be picked up, but not started in week one. That's how Greg worded it...I can't seem to find the thread. The pickups will be done on Friday, like always.

*No extra rounds for DC leagues...Only for leagues with Free agent pickups.

That's all I can remember for now.
