GMs, will now be able to play a player in any position they do not refuse. All players will be utility with the exception of their refused positions.
The reason for this change is because of the redundancy of the 50% rule in use with a position refusal option. We added a rule for season 35 to correct an issue where a player known well as one POS would sign up in a second pos that is unproven in an attempt to scare off would be owners from taking the risk, these players would then sign with a team they like and not play the "risky" position but instead the POS they are best known for. We then created two options on sign up. 1. 50% player - who is forced to play their registered POS 50% of there weekly games. 2. Utility - who could play anywhere and had no say in what POS they play.
This new rule although effective, it is much harder for the league to track as well as the GMs. The simple fix is all players become Utility. They can play everywhere except their Refused positions. There is no need for 50% as you can refuse all pos except the pos you want to play anyway.
We will finish off season 35 with the 50% / Utility rule and prepare for the change come season 36.
