I appreciate you making your protective list public. I can't make my list public because my team is still in the playoff hunt, I wouldn't want to disturb any of my players. Smile

I bet Tulsa will take Courtney Paris off your hand.

To be perfectly fair, a list was not publicly released when the same was done for Atlanta.

And I'm sure we can almost guess what six players were protected from each team.


Yes, not realized to public, but the OWNERS aren't the public....we (the Fantasy Owners) should get to know the list!!!

In Poker terms, you'd be giving away your hand. One Owner may think highly of player A and another not. Your bartering for players, it's smart to keep your information and opinions private. Obviously, you want to make the best deal for your club. Smile

Just my Opinion, but any COACH currently with a job anyWHERE should NOT be eligible for the WNBA...it should only be Coaches or Players without JOBS at the current moment!!!!

LOL, I asked, and it was just WNBA coaches that couldn't be hired Wink

I actually originally wanted Westhead, cause I didn't want to be too Uconn centric, but PW got taken..so..might as well go with Best coach available.

Seriously though, if they aren't coaching somewhere else, then they probably aren't that great of a coach..people quit their jobs to take another one all the time. Very Happy


Westhead shouldn't have been available to be hired either!!!! We the owners we not aware current college coaches were available to be hired...in all actuality, would Geno ever leave UConn for Seattle....NEVER...and if we are trying to be as realistic as possible then having Geno, Summitt, Westhead, etc. is not fair or realistic!!!!!


The rules are written in there if you had bothered to read...we can't hire someone else's coach

Is it really realistic...no...I think Westhead might leave a team to coach in the WNBA again, but Geno probably not. Still, the rules are there.

need a back up pg lol. when one of them can handle the ball to bring it up court, then ill keep one of them. if paris is taken, ok, that sucks, but at the same time, even if i were to draft a pg it would take months if not years to get them fully ready to take over for ticha, atleast with haynie, i have a step inbetween.

and yes this is showing my hand, but its not because i think highly of the 6 i picked, its because i was thinking more of needs then of who i really want. being able to only protect 6, you have to let better players go into the expansion and hope they take the one player thats there that you dont want to give up. and the best way to look at it is that paris and walker are there and one will still be there. if i would have kept paris for example and let haynie go, there is a good chance i would still have haynie and would lose walker in the process, so the outcome is still the same.

I'll like to ask the Commish this, how will teams be able to work out a trade with the Tulsa team if other Owners don't know the names of the players not protective. Let's say I'm willing to offer Tulsa a draft pick for a player who is not protective they wouldn't select unless I entice them with a draft pick.

Well we are going to know what players Tulsa picked soon. Then we can make trades.

Or am I misunderstanding your question.

I have to agree. It's not realistic that NBA and top college coaches would be available for these jobs.

WNBA Assistant Coaches are open season for promotion purposes, i.e., Olaf Lange. Pokey Chatman was a viable candidate. Pat Summitt and so forth are a stretch. There just not going to leave their jobs for these.

Some of you may want to reconsider your choices:)

Is it ok to advertise?

I have some great players for sale! Laughing
I have some good players for sale! Very Happy
I have some mediocre players for sale! Smile
I have some uh-hum players for sale! Sad
I have some players I might pay you to take for sale! Embarassed

A little bit of something for everyone.
Don't miss out on one of the best sales of the century!

caveat: you must however offer something of comparable value, not some piece of crap for my good and great players!

Let's say Tulsa is torn between 2 players from the same team or doesn't want to select a player from a particular team but another Owner might want to dangle a draft pick for that player, how will the other Owner know if the player was left unprotective for the expansion draft.

I think Westhead might reasonably come back, whereas it is less likely that Geno or Pat would leave their cushy dynasties. Still where do you draw the line? This is fantasy after all.

then how bout any owner who wants their 6 protected to be known, do as i did, just post it. its just like whiz pretty much giving away who he protected when atlanta was drafting players. i dont feel its a big deal and if theres another owner who doesnt care, i say just post it. i dont think its a big deal. let the owners have a choice whether they want to release it or not.

Hey, SportsGuru and other owners, I (Tulsa) am more than willing to listen to expansion draft trade proposals. After all, I know who's available. Feel free to PM me. Wink

I will provide the private information of the unprotected players to Tulsa. Tulsa will choose 13 players - one from each team.

Tulsa will provide me their selections privately and I will post them in the Transactions blog and update the Team blog at the front of this message. You will then know what players every team has on their rosters.

Not adhering to the privacy rules takes away from the integrity, skills and fun of the game.

It's the same procedures used by the WNBA.

Tulsa gets 1 player from every team.

So are expansion draft trade deals not allowed? I won't do any if that's against the rules!

I did read the rules....that's why I think it's unfair you get to hire Geno....he coaches the UCONN Huskies....it was NEVER stated we could hire college coaches....it was ONLY stated we couldn't hire current WNBA Head Coaches....but it SHOULD state we can't hire NBA or College Men/Women's Head Coaches as well.

So Commissioner RavenDog are you ruling Auriemma and Westhead ineligible???
