It's a personal 24 hour window. I lost a player last year because I was a few minutes early

Scott literally posted this a few comments up.

Reminder of the basic ground rules...one claim for every 24 hours. Meaning, if you claim a player 1:30 p.m., you can't claim another player until 1:30 p.m. the next day. It's not a noon-to-noon window like with waivers.


Ya I guess you're right. Forgot how it was run last year. Is there a link to Scott's post - I can't find it.
I personally think It's silly though - let's say you have something going on one day and can't draft til later, why should you be punished the next day?

Anyways - obviously not gonna change anything this year but my two cents is it should be revisited next year!

Not really. I mean we are talking bottom of the roster players anyway. I mean I can't think of a more fair way than a 24 hour personal window for a free claim.

I just checked. Last year ther were people who were not following the personal 24 hour period. Should those players be FA again?

Nvm. It wa just one person and that player sucks.

I guess I just don't get out the 24 hr reset is unfair... or less fair than the personal 24 hr

So you think it's fair for someone to be able to make a claim tomorrow at 11:59 am and then again at noon? Because that's what you are advocating to able to do.

Why not? It would still be a loss. You would be picking last on the first day if u decided to do that.

Also, I only advocate this for between now and roster submission. Not in season claims.

Actually, I don't care...

Um it's a tactical advantage of you have a handful of gm's fighting over 1 or 2 players. Personally, I say tough shit if you didn't make a claim right away. Should've been better prepared.

I'd be alright with 2 full rounds. We'd be adding 16 picks to the proper draft and we had 19 players claimed yesterday. I don't dislike the claim process...it can be a little chaotic. In the end, we're fighting over minor leaguers.

I like the idea of 1 pick per day, not 1 per 24 hours.

Saturday the 30th. I don't know if it was officially posted but that's what I'm going with. Gives me a few days to review everyone's stuff ahead of opening night.

Im fine with the 24 hours. With having so many members all over the world, not everyones days are comparable. It is more or less up to the manager to follow the rules and use the honor system. it is a way to give equal claim rights to everyone, not just the people who are sitting in front of comp all day every day, like myself...lol

maybe we should do it like waiver wire...once you make a pick you move to the bottom of the list.

doesn't work that well with free agents.. cause unless you have the luck to get the top priority at some point when your target is available, you're only going to feed him to the lions. So you would do the research and someone else would get the player

lol started a shitstorm. In the end I'm fine either way... it is as most have said a bunch of minor leaguers. I still think it is a lot easier and more equitable for everyone if you do 24hr period so that we can not be penalized for having a life outside of BBKL.
