    Default Should we eliminate the callup exemption?

    Seeing how much opposition there is to this.

    Elimination would not affect those players who have already had a callup year (and are still on their rookie deal).

    We would have this rule go into effect next season, so you could still take advantage of it for 2051, but if you would vote "no" solely because it's going into effect too soon, please post below what year of implementation would get you to vote "yes."

    I respect that, I love the callup exemption in theory but hate it when I have to do admin stuff.

    Hate to admit I'm torn here. I like the callup rule, but I don't like it when the only reason given is to make the admin's job easier. (as much as I want to do that)

    I really like the callup exemption. It gives the bottom feeders something to look forward to in the last month of the season, with their prospects who are going to hit the show the next year starting in the bigs.

    I voted yes. I hate things that require extra work, even when I am not the one doing it.

    I voted yes, mostly because I rarely use it in fear that I'll go over the limit and burn a year by mistake.

    Before I accidentally screw up and burn a 100K year, we never passed this did we? Not that I oppose it or anything, just making sure of the current state of the FOBL-law.

    No, this was never actually voted/enacted.
