There's no "Random Thoughts" thread for fantasy and I don't think there really needs to be, so I'm posting this here.
I get a number of fantasy football newsletters sent to my Hotmail (spam) account, including one from FFToolbox that is decent. They have apparently partnered with Scout this year to host fantasy football leagues. I just got an e-mail from them saying the following:
Announcement: Adrian Peterson will NOT be allowed back into the Player Pool of Free Agency.
After much thought we have decided to NOT allow Adrian Peterson back in the player pool if he is cut from any Scout Fantasy league. For Dynasty, in the event he is released, he would be re-instated for the free agent / rookie draft after the season. We just couldn't live with the possibility that any of this year's Champions would have resulted from a late season addition of Adrian Peterson for the stretch run. Ultimately, we feel that this would do our contest and our participants more harm than good. Thank you for your patience with this difficult decision.
This is interesting to me. My league uses ESPN (suck it, BSMB!) and I can understand the logistical reasons for it, but I think I would be pretty pissed if they told us we couldn't use Peterson if he were to be reinstated.
