Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
From the Skinny (Romig):
"A quick note about injured players: To be eligible for the IR in Y! leagues, a player must be on the official IR. In some cases this happens within 48 hours of an injury, in others considerably longer. Erik Cole, for example, hasn’t played since Oct. 3, but was just placed on the IR on Saturday. I have no idea what factors come into play when teams determine how to handle injured players. Perhaps the IR move is only necessary to facilitate another move. Anyway, just thought I’d try to shed some light on why it takes so long for some players to earn IR eligibility. It might not be entirely fair, but given the frequency of hockey injuries and the lack of information offered by some clubs, making a case-by-case evaluation on each injury simply isn’t practical. Real-life IR equals fantasy IR"
fyi, i've lost gonchar AND kovalchuk and i've only slid from 2nd to 3rd... i'm making do...
if you drop gonchar you're a doofus... just suggesting it shows that you just wanted something to piss and moan about, or be a contrarian about... whatever.
no one's crying or 'blaming...' -- i'm merely pointing out what many others also think is an easily-remedied dilemma.
somebody else already pointed out how the other league (espn?) deals with it and it makes sense...
in closing, sorry your frail sensibilities were affected in the process of my *opinion* being shared... if you're so butt-hurt by what i or others have to say then hit the ignore button -- or go eat a bag of dicks.
are you trying to say that you dont think that wlly's way of thinking is just GREAT!??
unlimited BNs & a whole lot of dropping!
sounds just great! So if Ovechkin gets hurt & he'll be out for 3 weeks I'll sure to drop him!!!
*I dont have Ovie but Im just sayin'
I JUST THOUGHT OF SOMETHING......
Why should yahoo even allow an IR slot then. Why bother!
We should just have unlimited BENCH WARMERS! ORRRRRRR
we can just DROP everyone who gets hurt & will only be out a month... GOOOOOOD IDEA wlly - good one.
YOU my friend ARE A GENIUS!!!
Do you play in a points only league? Because if you do & thats your way of thinking.... i'll use your words "thats the dumbest thing i've ever heard"
having Kova warm a BN spot when you have an open LW spot is dumb. You can be utilizing by playing another LW hat you would be able to pick up if Kova can be placed on IR.
Since you keep calling me dumb. and my thoughts dumb.
I think you're the dumb one.
