The BBFL has four proposed rule changes. Returning BBFL team owners may now vote on these propositions. The fourth pro, which has three options, will be voted on via the Borda Count Method. In voting for such propositions, owners must rank their answers from most favored to least favored.

To vote, send an email to bbfl at scottlucas dot com. Please put your team name in the message so I can keep track of who has voted. Use this forum to discuss your vote, the upcoming season, or whatever.

Voting ends at 1159pm PST, Monday, February 27. I will immediately begin placing owners with teams depending on the voting results, and when that process ends, I'll open the trading window.
