    It was mentioned before but I almost figured since it wasnt done last year it wouldn't get done. for one, you would only amnesty players you drafted in the sim league. The purpose of the amnesty was to account for not being able to see contracts at the time of the draft. I actually wouldn't use it, but I was wondering moreso in the global league sense.

    Getting unwanted cotnracts off your cap that you drafted and did not know the salary would be the benefit.

    I share the same opinion, but would like to hear other GM's opinion on why there should be an amnesty option. Maybe CP3 has a way to make it not just a free salary dump for team that amnesties a player.

    I'd be for this only if it's in reference to contracts that you drafted in the INITIAL league draft. None of us knew how the contract was structured when we drafted and may have been stuck with a sub-par player with a blaoted contract. I agree with that. Although, I don't think we should have it for any other players that we traded for, drafted, or signed. Only for ones that YOU drafted first.

    Although, it doesn't really apply to me, seeing that I have a completely different team now from what I had in the draft lol

    Interesting strategy. I would start "rebuilding" during the lebron draft class.

    also, I hope we have less time to pick in the 2nd round. 4 hours or less. It's a bunch of career bench players anyway.

    Yup, I'd estimate by season's end 5 or 6 teams will be "tanking" for the yao sweepstakes. Can you imagine Lebron? Oh you don't get Lebron but yodu consolation prize is D Wade, life is hard. LOL.
