Hmm, I just had an idea that I think could be fun.
On our trade up and trade down scenarios, we introduced the "tax" (15 percent on trade up, 35 percent on trade down) because we know where the players were drafted. The tax offsets the perfect knowledge.
But what if we trade up or down BEFORE the draft? If that's the case, I think it would be reasonable to get full value.
What do you think about changing the tradeup/trade down rules to this?
1. If you trade up or down before the draft, you can trade at full value. However, this is irreversible. Once you make the call to do it, you can't go back and switch. You can make as many of these trades as you like as long as they only involve draft picks.
2. You can still trade up or down after the draft, in which case the rules in the thread header still apply.
If we really wanted to be pure, we would eliminate the second option and only go with the first. I could do that, though I think it's fun to do the tradeup/trade down thing.
In the final seven games of the 2013 season, the Chiefs averaged 34.6 points per game, scored 38 points or more 4 times, and went 2-5. The NFL has ruined the sport.
