Wish List / To Do

This is a list of suggestions and requests made by the SOM community from the past and present, as well as initiatives we at SportingNews.com have a desire or need to work on. It is in rough, estimated order of desire, and always under construction, meaning 1) don't place too much emphasis on the relative position of everything, and 2) just because something is higher on the list doesn't necessarily mean it will be addressed sooner. There are plenty of other factors that go into what we tackle at given times, including scope, timing, budget, etc.

  • make Maximum Rules optional/customizable
  • forum improvement
  • 7-game Semi-Finals
  • improved playoff structure for 24-team leagues
  • bring all older games (e.g. '70s, '80s...) under SOM central site
  • reboot/refresh older games (e.g. '70s, '80s...)
  • bug: home-field advantage for Semi-Finals not correctly determined when down to run diff. tiebreaker
  • more comprehensive personal manager stats/history display

  • Live Draft: option to frenzy upon draft completion
  • Live Draft: support for salary caps
    • One day we may be able to add a display that tells you how much money you've spent and have left, but the problem is that there's no good way to enforce a salary cap. I posed this problem to the community on the forums and no one could offer a good solution.
  • Auto Draft improvements (longer discussion to be had on ideal design)
