The current release waiver system is not working and will be scrapped at the end of the season.
3rd year players aging into 4th year players will no longer be automatically placed into an offseason waiver window
4th-6th year players will no longer need to pass through waivers before being protected
rights to 4th-6th year players with remain their related real-life team (as 1st-3rd year players currently do)
As 4th-6th year players are granted a not-insignificant minimum salary of $1.0, this would raise the possibility of teams 'streaming' protected 4th-6th year players within their own organisation(s) to effectively gain extra cap.
I propose that we introduce a limit on the number of times you may protect a 4th-6th before their salary becomes guaranteed for the remainder of the season - whether the limit be the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd time they are protected in the same season.
This vote is intended to establish whether we want a limit or not. If it is determined that the league membership want a limit then a follow-up discussion/vote can be held to determine the conditions.
This vote will open at 7AM ET on Monday August 18th, and close at 11:59PM ET on Sunday August 24th.
