Congrats to bdog and the gang on narrowly edging out ucfinfan86 and his Saints for GMotY. I love how both GMs have completely different styles but always seem to build amazing teams year in and year out.

That concludes this year of GML. Assuming no one else will run it, we'll be back next year, though with some tweaks and changes to make things easier on us running it. I don't do much these days, but Witlon carries this on his back, so we've decided on some things to make our lives easier. Some sneak previews:

We're likely starting in mid to late February because of energy, and we need the official draft order which is done at the combine.

Tying into that, we're getting rid of doing our comps. I know people won't like that, but it expends energy, and we can't continue to ignore real life comp picks anymore and can't do both without it being cumbersome. We had to omit the Jamie Collins trade completely in 2017 because of it.

You won't be able to trade minimum free agents anymore.

Your roster will have to be between 46 and 53 the entire time. At some point you'll have to get up to 51 as a minimum, and 53 will be an earlier harder deadline. This will also essentially function as a bids cap during FA as well without actually being a bids cap.

If you go over your time during the draft, you will not be able to trade your pick, and you still have to take the cap hit of that pick, it doesn't slide down. More incentive to get your damn pick in.

In the mean time, we usually get some FFLs going, and have very unPC commentary threads during the season, so hang around, and if you don't, I guess see you next year!

Thanks for all your hard work Mach and (mostly) Witlon :P . It was a fun season, certainly learned a lot with the training wheels off after co-GMing last year with IBleedBlackNGold. Congratulations to bdogtitan11 and thanks to all most of the other owners for making this a great year

Thanks for all the work you do! I like this comp pick change... It mimics the real NFL better. It will be nice to get a bunch of extra selections in the middle of the year.

Are the teams were picking now just a mock or will they be our teams?

Considering the chaos and disorder I sure hope it's just a mock
