To all and freddy too. I have had an email into espn since we drafted on Aug 2nd about a redraft. It is now a week later and stil no reply. So I would vote for a redraft absolutely as my first option. I do not even want to think about what this is gonna be trying to fix this. It is now a week later so I envision espn not emailing me back and as of now we are on our own to fix this problem. Smizzy has been gracious enough to take on this project. He is League Vice President, I give him carte blanche to make decisions in my absence. I feel his plan is fair and just. No GM regardless of team strength will be selfish here including myself. When it comes my turn to release a player I will comply and so will everyone else. You got the ball Smiz, Run for the endzone my man.

I'm getting screwed giving up Stewart. He's a Top 20 back which is VERY valuable in a 20 team league that allows for 2 RB starters. I have an excellent board and he's the 24th player OVERALL on my board.
I never mentioned a redraft because it looked like guys were willing to take their chances in the waiver/trade market, but if that's not the case, we simply have to redraft. I understand their point of view and a redraft is the only fair thing to do. Guys have to complete their predraft rankings so if/when the thing doesn't work for a pick or two you're covered.
You can't fix it without creating unfairness to the other players. There are 4 to 5 strong teams and mine is one of them, but I'd rather redraft than have this as an issue of contention all season.
I also remind you that this isn't the only issue that screams for a redraft. Guys that drafted 2 Ds, 2 Ks have a right to say they would've taken someone else. What about teams like mine that only have 1 QB, shouldn't QB's be treated as D's and K's where each team can only hold one? Anyway, my point is that a redraft can wash away a lot of these issues so that you guys can spend your brain cells on tryin to figure out a freakin way to beat me, rather than crying about the draft.
