Assuming this all gets worked out with the MLB, is everyone in again this year?

Let's fire up a new thread.

I'll play

Wondering though if we may need to change the rules a bit so that the winners won't need to wait so long after the season is over.  I know I'm a procrastinator and sometimes life gets in the way but maybe we need to all pony up front instead of waiting til the end.  Thats how we did it in football.  Seemed to work well.

Any thoughts?

I know in years past we had to have them in early (yes, I was an offender this year getting them in sometime in October).  I would really like to see a rule such as they are in by the end of the third week or beginning the 4th week, you forfeit games until you're paid in.  Yes, this might be harsh and yes, things happen but it's a commitment that we need to follow through on.  

Just my 2 cents worth on that.

I don't have a problem with that.  This was the first year I had any issue and may have been my lack of pushing some as well.  It should be back to normal this year but I don't think it is a bad idea to set a deadline.  I just know it hasn't been an issue before this weird and wacky year.

The delay was long, but in the end, it all worked out. A deadline is a good idea. I would propose that all cigars be received by the "commish" by June 1st. My thought is that the baseball season is long, so the deadline should be as well. Just how my noggin works!

I received my winnings, and Kerry hit me with some extras after the fact. It was a round about way that worked out in the end.

In the grand scheme of life, these "high bottom problems" are just that...

I hope that in the CG spirit, we let understanding and compassion guide us...

If someone has not fulfilled their commitment to the league, then I suggest that they are ineligible for the next season.

I shall jump off my soapbox now, and say this...I am ready to defend my CG FBB Title!!

Enjoy today y'all!!  :biggrin:  :angel:

End the lockout.  It's so sad watching billionaires fight with millionaires.
I'm right 98% of the time.  Who cares about the other 3%?

That is great news.  It's about time they figured it all out.  Wish that it was done in January, but at least we get a full season.
