    For the sake of keeping the league on a level playing field, Arroyo was banned from the competition. Pepe Sanchez and Rodney White are still available, by the way.

    What about fringe players like Mejia and Super Dupe? Can I add them and send them to NBDL to stew?

    You can always sign Super Dupe. Give him the vets min, put him in a nice suit, and sit him on the bench.

    Okie dokie...

    Kidd - back
    Wallace - ankle
    Bogut - wrist

    At least so far this year none of the Sprockets have injured another Sprocket.

    The question is, whether having been a Sprocket last year means that a player will be injury plagued for the rest of his career. You may need to check both current and past Sprockets. In a couple of years the pool of available players may shrink so much the league has to shut down.

    I'm really hoping for a healthy season this time around. I tried to draft guys that are durable as well as talented. No T-Mac, no AK47, no Dwyane Wade, etc.

    So my two stars on the wing are Grant Hill and Ray Allen.

    I think you can add guys to that list from your roster, and it makes sure you don't accidentally drop them from your roster... not that your team really has anyone you need to put on the can't cut list.

    Seriously...what is this list? Do you mean from your nightly playing roster or from your team? The list shows two from my team. I didn't put them there. ???

    How could you "accidentally" drop someone?

    In all seriousness, I thought this was a list of players that you didn't want to cut... but looking at it closer... it's players that you can't cut.

    The can't cut list is so that teams can't tank the league and dump franchise material for another GM to scoop up.

    Good news - Kidd is back and looks good.

    Bad news - Foye is out indefinitely.

    He is now the fourth Sprocket to go down and we haven't even started the season yet.

    No one has suffered from the pre-season as much as I have.

    Boozer has played 2 games so far this week, and has a combined 62 points and 31 rebounds.


    In 2 games! :eek:
    He better rock the regular season. :cheerleader:

    Or how about TJ Ford with 16 points, 12 assists (12!) , 2 rebounds, a steal, a block, and only one turnover.

    Even Babyfats got over his opening night jitters to give me 16 points and 11 rebounds... and a bunch of 3's from the center position.
