This is where a voluntary opt in feature could help. You could sign off your rights to goalie and will be drafted in appropriate spot

It could help people like bulb who might want to goalie be drafted at a more appropriate spot for goalie (late 3rd) instead of having to skate if he's drafted mid 2nd.
I could get behind a rule like that. Everyone would be free to play any position, unless you decide to lock yourself into a certain position. The biggest issue with this would be getting all the players to edit their signup to reflect this, if we add a column for lock-in.
Well it's voluntary so people could update their sign up if they want, and if not nothing's different than normal.

So it's changeable at any time? So I sign up as skater, opt in as skater, get picked 10th round, then change my sign up right after the draft to opt out and now I can goalie.
It's basically a shittier system of talking to your owner, where you "talk" to the league as a whole.

Huh? Lay off the hard liquor guy. registrations are locked before draft happens (usually day before). You did that as commissioner too...

-What would happen to players like me who are willing to play a certain position in specific times (i.e. playoffs)?? I'd have to either be locked to the other position; or I'd have to to not opt in and....wait for it.....TALK TO MY OWNER about it anyway. Pointless rule imo, and unnecessary restriction on players. - Moose 2015

It wouldn't be a mandatory rule... it's a voluntary (binding) opt in. If you are not serious about switching then this doesn't apply to you. Have fun getting drafted as a goalie again though.

I'm gonna go ahead and predict that 0 players actually affected by role restrictions will use it then. I see 0 reason for anyone to restrict themselves when they don't have to lol.

I think the issue is that you're kind of spinning your situation into something that isn't true. You weren't going around telling everyone "Hey I'm gonna be a huge team player this season! I'm going to do whatever position the team requires of me!" In fact if I remember your signup note it was something along the lines of..."IM SKATING THIS SEASON DRAFT AT OWN RISK"... So the issue has nothing to do with anything that you're talking about. The issue is with people like yourself (in season 5) when you lowered your draft value to the fifth round by telling people you were skating.

By allowing people to lock themselves into a position a lot of this can be eliminated I think it's a solid idea TK.

ur memories of season 5 are .... so off.
1. I was drafted 1st in the 4th round - i think unanimously everyone agrees I went on time or too early.
2. I really did want to skate, which is why I only goalied regular season when halo was away (twice only)
3. If any owner talked to me before the draft; I would of told them the same thing. I would've only goalied for owners who cooperated with me; which Vap did.

My entire point is, owners should talk to players like me who like switching roles, and assess their own situations. We had 0 problems with positions in season 5, don't fix it if it aint broke.
