Thanks to Friend of Grantland, Michael, who e-mailed boss of Grantland Bill Simmons last week about the NBA lockout. Yeah, yeah, weknowit’sovernow. But we’re running this e-mail anyway! Because we like how you think, Michael. Thanks for writing!
The response to Grantland’s Bad Quarterback League has been encouraging, intimidating and extremely helpful. But the Declaration of Independence was not perfected in one draft and neither was our original set of BQBL rules.
We received a slew of missives from readers with astute questions and/or suggestions that we had not considered or were too dumb to include the first time around. So before we started tallying points this season, we felt like it was important to address some of these issues and clarify the scoring and scheduling. Our addendum to the BQBL introduction is below. Everybody deserves a second chance to make things right, especially JaMarcus Russell.
