    Really need to change this. The punishment for someone sitting on the #2 waiver is too extreme. Meanwhile, if you're sitting at #30, you can just pick illegal players all day, and see if you can slip one through.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Maybe you drop 50% your distance to the top, with a minimum of 3 spots or something.

    Past a certain threshold you could just be forced to drop your lowest pick. Like bottom 5 in the waiver are forced to drop their 6th, then their 5th, etc.

    Maybe, but you could run into the same kind of problem there (like only having a first or second, or something). Probably easier to just be dropped to the bottom, and not be allowed to place a claim on that player.

    Really though, 50% with 3 min (or even 2) would work okay in general I think. If you're #2 overall, that would drop you to 5. 10 overall, drop to 15, etc. 20 or higher, drop to the bottom. That seems fairly appropriate.

    If we do anything, I prefer strengthening the punishment for teams with bottom-15 waiver priority than lessening it for teams with high priority.

    It isn't hard to not make illegal adds. We've been going for 3+ years and I still haven't made one, and I'm sure many others are in the same boat.

    I have added Victor Reyes to debut waivers.

    As always, if you see someone you want let me know and i'll put him on the WW.

    I guess to me it depends somewhat on whether the player affects a matchup or not. If it's caught in time, I'm not sure it's necessary to destroy the owner and a light penalty should be fine. If it's not caught in time, fire away.

    Please accept my most sincere of apologies for the greed I have displayed here today. I hope I will one day be forgiven for this unfortunate misdeed.

    Punishment is fine as is, cause even if 30 waiver claim you are normally losing a guy on roster, as well as losing claim. Donít feel bad for anyone who gets hooped by this. It isnít hard to read rules, and figure out when to add people. Guess some just need to learn the hard way.

    If anything penalty should be more severe, repeat offenders should lose waiver priority and a draft pick!

    In Havok's defence it's not like he took some AA prospect with no MLB playing time.

    He could have heard his name somewhere, checked fangraphs saw MLB playing time and added him. His bad. I don't think we should go changing the rules though...i don't think we have anyone that thinks "Oh i'm bottom 5 priority let me see if i can sneak a few players on the WW".

    The rules work and we have a fine group of gentlemen. Illegal adds aren't a huge issue since Ace left. When it happens it's an honest mistake or Spanky is blackout drunk.
