Although I highly doubt any of these will go through.
The one poll question that I see the Broncos have added is the drop round values attached to the keepers. I absolutely need to endorse this one!!! I think this is where we are running into a lot of the issues in terms of balance in the league and manipulation of picks. If we get rid of the round value and just keep our top 4 players that would solve a lot of issues. Above all, this is the one issue that I most strongly feel needs to be changed. Hope you all agree... if it comes down to it, I will bribe people to vote yes!
The issue is that people have made moves based on those round values.... so dropping them would suck for those teams.
Yes, but it wouldn't go into effect for over a year. The downside of those round values is much greater than the upside.
And no, I'm not actually bribing people...
I would support a rule change that would prevent manipulation of draft picks. Something along the lines of losing a higher pick, rather than a lower one, if you don't have the round needed to keep that particular player. Or even something where you can't keep a player if you don't own the corresponding pick.
But I think the round values corresponding to keepers in general is just another part of the strategy involved and I enjoy it being a part of the league. I wouldn't like to see it abolished.
That idea was tossed around too, with regard to losing a higher pick. Not sure exactly why it wasn't adopted. I think it has something to do with people trading their early round picks to others so that they wouldn't have to give them up.
