We didn't change the points league to a H2H league, though. Rather, Lucky started a totally separate, new league, and made membership optional. Therefore, 100% of the league consented to the new structure. Nobody got screwed, which is what the concern is with changing roster slots or categories.
I'd agree with most of the above. I just wanted to acknowledge that nobody drafted their team around a H2H strategy. I'd also point out that every rules change since has consequences. If we'd never expanded the playoff field from 6 to 8, I'd have won a THIRD title in 2011. Instead you were able to, throw some match-ups, exploit the seeding and a late trade deadline to get your first win. I'd never thought of it this way before, but I guess we can agree I did get "screwed" by that one.
Capping playoff roster moves absolutely hurt me, since I'd always prioritized a deep starting 11 over my bench. But it's a rule change that you and some others felt had a lot of merit and would improve the league long term.
Do you see where I'm going? But if you prefer TOs as a category then let's discuss.
Here's my thinking, re: AST/TO to TO.
Typically the league's best players are the ones who commit the most turnovers. They're receiving the most minutes, handling the ball more, taking more shots. Using turnovers as a category punishes managers for having and starting better players. And just about the only workable strategy is to ignore the category, which isn't exactly punting - purposely drafting high turnover players.
