#6 Waived players

Update: This issue is put to bed as well!!! Once you waive a guy, he is waived, EVEN IF HE IS SIGNED AND YOU WAIVED HIM BY ACCIDENT! Iron fist, no exceptions, period. Cool?

In the past, I have ruled that once you waive a player via email he is waived. This was upheld with the waiving of Chacon last season as he was waived via email. Then, I ruled that Mark DeRosa could be pulled back as he was signed and I felt that Low Life made an honest mistake, and due to bombs exploding all around him, I would give him the benefit of the doubt. How do we want to handle this in the future? Will this apply to guys pulled back for the purpose of trading? Should we:

A) uphold the idea that once a player is waived he is waived no matter what

B) Allow teams to pull a player back who was waived earlier in the week?

My own feeling is that you should wait to waive a player until you are sure you don’t want him and can’t trade him; in other words, as a last resort. What are your feelings?

Option A - Rule with an iron fist Bob.
 
I think we should leave it as it is and give Bob discretion based upon personal situations. That way, we still have opportunity to bitch.
 
I hate people that can't make up their mind. Once you waive a player, that should be it, over and done with.
 
Waived is waived.

Agree waived is waived. The less discretion for procedural items the better IMO.
 
In favor of A.
 
waived is waived.
