EDIT: For those who need reminding (because it was discussed and originally voted on so long ago), this Rule was for the bottom 4 teams to have a playoff for the top picks.
Early exit polls suggested that a vote for my rule change would lose 15-1. I was laughed at for my beliefs. “I don’t think this is important” said one owner. “Seriously, why are we talking about this still?” said a commissioner. “I think it’s just you vs the world on this one Hustle” said Alex Herd.
For those of you who don’t remember, this was discussed all the way back during Thanksgiving. I remember having a heated discussion on slack while buying an extra chair for the Thanksgiving table (that I would return a week later).
Unlike all other rule discussions, this one was never voted upon because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
After pushing for a vote to see where the league stood, a delayed email requesting a vote was finally sent out. “That rule is the stupidest shit that should not be passed” said Ferns in his polite tone.
After an email requesting a vote about a month ago was sent, there was no follow up or secondary requests for votes (like in previous rule votes).
But everything changed on February 2nd, 2017.
JUSTICE. DEMOCRACY. NO TANKING
“I guess” said one voter, while another one was overheard saying “I wasn’t sure what I was voting for based on the wording of the ballot”. The voice of the voiceless has finally been heard!
IT PASSED. AND WE WON THE POPULAR VOTE!!
Democracy has prevailed and Dynasty Grinders will be banning tankers. NOT IN THIS LEAGUE. Together we will make Dynasty Grinders Great Again.
PS: This one goes out to you know who. We’re coming for the lineup delinquents next!!
