    Sounds like tanking, don't we have a rule about that? Something like losing your first round pick or something.

    You could have drafted him. X Drafting Bichette didn't change anything IMO. You can save a spot for whoever you want to use a pick on if they are in the system or not. After the draft, players go through the waiver process. Simple as that. You should have drafted him but you didn't, therefore he will now go through waivers.

    I will make a waiver claim for Whitley when he gets added to ESPN. If he doesn't go through the waiver process, I will be done with the league. I don't care if a player is or is not in the draft pool. The rule is you can draft who you want and then it goes to waivers after the draft. If you drafted Whitley, it would be kosher, but the process has always been that any roster moves after the draft go through waivers.

    I’m not for this leaving an open roster spot for a guy not in the database. Waivers is the only fair way. The Bichette thing was a draft pick, he was selected in the normal process. After that, everyone hits waivers.
  5. NBA lottery thread !!

    JJJ shot 40% from 3 and 80% from the free throw line last year. He also obliterated the B10 freshman record for blocks. He can be beat and plays a little handsy but they wont call a bunch of those weak fouls he got called for last year that got him in foul trouble. His defensive rating was 86.7 (better than Bamba), which was best on a good MSU defense last year. He also had a 10.5 D+/- compared to Bamba's 8.9. Bamba also shot 27% from three and 60% from the line. So not really sure what you are seeing in Bamba that is better than JJJ.

    I'm in. I haven't looked at my team yet but willing to make some moves.
  7. Official Pistons Thread: Offseason

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nba/van-gundy-wont-return-to-pistons-as-coach-or-team-president/ar-AAwTM7h?ocid=ientp The first step in getting back to being a meaningful team has taken place. Will be interesting to see what route the new GM takes.
  8. Round 2, Pick 43: Kerryon Johnson

    He was my favorite of the other backs after Barkley and Guice. So I like that we added him, not a fan of the trade up or passing on Guice. Albeit I may change my mind on that depending on what comes out on Guice.
  9. Round 4, Pick 114: Da'Shawn Hand DE

    I like the pick, don’t love the value of trading next years third. If he becomes a decent roars too all player though then it’s worth it. I think he has untapped potential. Was a top prospect out of high school, just needs the right system fit.
  10. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    I disagree. The common denominator is our RBs cant get out of the backfield without being touched. Abdullah was great for a short stint in 16 when we still had Warford. We obviously could use an upgrade at RB, but we also need to make sure they can get some momentum without having to cut or get hit.

    TBH, Ragnow is probably more help for the run game than any of these backs would be outside of Barkley.
  12. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    Lol at all the people saying the New England way is to not draft RBs early so the Lions shouldn’t.
  13. 2018 NFL Draft Thread

    That was tough. I’m happy he is able to walk that much, but hurts seeing that limp. I was a fan of his, hate to see a career ruined so young.
  14. Round 1, Pick 20: Frank Ragnow

    My guess is Ragnow stays at C. Glasgow will stay at LG. Ragnow has been great, the two highest rated seasons by a C in the PFF rating system by far for 16 and 17. He has the history to be a great C. I don’t love it, don’t hate it, and will trust those who did their due diligence.
  15. Round 1, Pick 20: Frank Ragnow

    I don’t love the pick but it’s a huge need. Feels underwhelming but will trust the guys with the info.
