    Default Potential Rule Changes for Next Year

    I figure it will be good if we discuss these during the season as they come up.

    A few I remember off the top of my head:

    1) Draft time rule modifications

    2) Scored tourneys: look at new ways to decide which are scored. Possibly some stipulation that says "if X number of ranked teams are present, the tourney will be scored even if it's not listed as scored.." Or "If Y number of ranked wrestlers are in any given bracket, that weight will be scored even if it's not listed as scored."

    3) Adding points for finishing 3rd in bonus tourneys. Often the only difference between 2nd and 3rd is when you lost to the champion.

    4) Awarding the points if wrestlers wrestle up a weight. I'm not crazy about this personally, but a couple people have brought it up so it's worth thinking about.

    5) Clarify that trade deadline is eastern time. Possibly move it, but remember that we made it so early to curb dumping.

    Another really small thing that I'd like to be considered is changing the day the lineups are due. Thursday night before the weekend(or so) I think would be a bit better.
    To avoid criticism say nothing, do nothing, be nothing.

    I had thought about that as well but forgot to write it down. I really don't mind switching it. The reason we've had it be Monday was just for clarity of separating the weeks.

    Anyone opposed to this?

    So then what happens to the Duals that are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays? They just go on as meets LATER in the week? Just shift the entire week from Thursday @ midnight, (so Friday becomes the new Monday & Thursday becomes the new Sunday?)

    I have no reason to oppose that.

    Also:

    1) Ok with changing draft times;

    2) I saw this year just how many tourneys there are. Kinda of nuts! I don't know how you'd keep track of it all. I do think that the NY State Championships, (Cornell & Binghamton etc) should be added & the Service Academy Championships, (Navy, Army, Air Force, The Citadel etc) as well as they are MID-season tourneys.

    3) Maybe

    4) Yes.

    No problem with draft time modifications.

    Every tourney should be scored that is on the teams' schedule.

    Only if Reno is removed from Bonus list. CKI, Midlands, and Scuffle are the only tourneys that should have bonuses.

    Yes.

    Tourneys:
    I think if it is on any of the NCAA Div 1's SCHEDULE then it should count. That should EXCLUDE tourneys where the team is sending RSes for experience. For example PSU sent a bunch of kids to the ESO, Mat Town & W&J Open HOWEVER those tourneys were NOT on the team schedule so I think that if it is ON the schedule it should be included. And I say this specifically for the NY State Championships & the ALL Academy Championships. I have guys from Binghamton & Air Force & The Citadel. It would have scored me enough points to be in 5th place right now.

    "B" League Championships:
    TO keep interest UP for all members & not have 1/2 the league quit in January I think we need to have a "B League" championship where all the guys who aren't in the A league get their own tourney. In the end the winner of the B league gets a week long SIG BET with the guy who finishes DEAD LAST in the B league tourney championship. Btw GOLD liked this one & told me to post it.

    This way guys have a reason to still compete & something to sort of play for because even a guy who finishes 6th & misses the A League could end up dead last in the B league tourney. Maybe also the winner of both A & B league tourneys get a certain draft position. Maybe guys who finish in the top 2 in the A & B League tourney get an EXTRA ADD-DROP the next year.

    ADD/DROPS
    I think that they should be made TRADE-ABLE. In this way a person could trade a #1 guy for a #5 guy & get 2 ADD-DROPS let's say. Guys wouldn't be haggling over who is worth more. You could add ADD-DROPS to the trade just like PROS do with cash or draft picks.

    Completely agree with scoring all tourneys on the schedule.

    "B" League - why not? Agree with this also.

    The rules never stated you COULDN'T trade them, did they? No one got that creative. I agree that your add/drops should be trade-able.

    Cool! Glad to see that some of you think I have some good ideas. I hope we can agree on some stuff via vote or by Commissioner DECREE! ;P
