    On second thought I'll have limited internet access from dec to feb so there's really no way for me to win. But if you guys need someone to fill out the last spot, I'm in.

    Continuous waivers means all free agents are in waivers and you claim them in waiver order which means Jeremy lins are claimed by waiver order not by who camps out on their phone and computer the most. Some of us have work to do

    Thats a smart approach. I did a league like 6 years ago which a guy was moving players every single day like crazy.

    Is the waiver order redone after weekly matchups based on standings? For example, whoever is in first place has the last pick on the order.

    2 spots left. If you signed up on yahoo, send payment before Friday. You'll be dropped otherwise

    i dont think its based on standings. if you get a player off the waivers you go to the end of the priority list and you get last priority

    So you can only pick up players once a day, midnight?

    Roman just as an FYI, it would have been helpful if you put the payment info in that last group email or in the league. I rarely make my way down here these days. But I paid.

    I have mixed feelings about the continuous waivers, partly because picking up Lin and then Dragic were instrumental to my championship run last season, at the same time with the 3 pick ups a week it seems like there's going to be slim pickings for those of us without say top 5 waiver priority but at the same time it definitely makes it more challenging as well.

    but see you got lin and dragic because you were at the computer more or quicker than anybody else, which seems a little unfair for people who are at work or aren't near their computer to pick up lin and dragic. waiver priority seems a little more fair


    no it's per whatever you have the waiver period set to.

    Good point, I included it in the most recent one.

    It's a SF league so everyone has some idea where to get info. In any case I'm dropping 3 people in the morning if they dont pay tonight. otherwise you and another guy - both of whom have paid - cant sign up the league. As it stands right now, we have 11 in the league but 2 that have paid have yet to sign up

    Regarding waivers: I think we leave it how it is. Just adds more intrigue and action throughout the day when you hear or read something and run over to check. while some do hawk the waiver wire, those are also the people that use up their moves the fastest. I've seen managers use all 3 moves by midweek. Hopefully the 3 move maximum Minimizes the amount of activity by the hawks

    I agree. Some of us have less time than others.
