Amendment Proposals

This is pretty much how I view the amendment voting process every year. Do with that what you will...

This page is intended to be a landing spot for all proposed amendments during the 2021 Salmon League season.

If there is something you’d like to see changed that will improve the level of competition or further aid in the overall enjoyment of our league beginning in the 2022 season, please propose it in the comments.

We will refer back to these proposals at the end of the 2021 season and vote on any that have been endorsed by at minimum two additional members of the league. Any proposal that does not meet this requirement will not be put up for vote.

Please remember, when posting a potential amendment, be very clear in the change you’re looking to enact. Long, rambling, multi-faceted proposals are not likely to be endorsed.

Only put one proposed change per post. Do not include multiple proposals in one post or it is far too complicated for it to get accurately endorsed.

When endorsing a proposed amendment, REPLY to the original post. If endorsements are not in-line with the original proposal – reading an “I endorse this!” comment halfway down the page makes it impossible to tell which proposal you’re endorsing.

Additionally, when endorsing an amendment proposal – be very clear that this is what you are doing. A “yeah, that sounds cool” is not an official endorsement.

    With the official increase to our standard bench and the added importance to the draft, I propose removing all teams of keeper-eligible players and/or reducing keepers to 1 player of either position no later than the beginning of the 2023 season.

    Shorten the time a player goes from dropped to rostered. Change the current waiver period to 1 day and make the player available next day.

      If you amend the proposal to two days of waiver and then add the phrase referencing add/drops are reflective of the transaction date I will support it.

    Reduce the number of keepers from 3 to 2. One qualifying pitcher and one qualifying hitter. Effective 2023.

    Reasoning: Increase the quality of players in the draft. Reduces the tom-fuckery of big trades at the deadline.

      What if it is any two players? Allows for a little more flexibility given injuries.

      F 2023, let’s just do this next year. Who needs more than 1 keeper hitter & pitcher?

    Keep the current 2 day waiver period for free agents. The change is that any adds/ drops will now be rostered on the day of the transaction, not the following.

    Change the playoff tiebreaker from

    Best regular-season record vs opponent

    to

    Higher seed wins

    What’s the point of kicking ass for 21 weeks to lose a tiebreaker because a team got luckier than you one random week when your team might have been decimated by injuries? Why do we not put more emphasis on being better for 21 weeks?
