The point of these changes are to help a team rebuild quickly. Before, the rules were designed to attract new owners. I realized that doesn't make sense. I don't want to punish a original owner for drafting a poor team and give the guy taking it over a opportunity that the original owner didn't. I don't want a lucky new owner receiving a great team get another perk they don't need. In either situation, the owners both new and old should have the same opportunities.
1. No more supplemental picks for new owners. No more special perk to a new owners first pick.
2. Top 5 pick rule.
This rule is for players chosen in the top 5 picks during offseason drafts in either conference. If the player is considered to be a rookie, you can start their career during any season in their career. If the player is a veteran, recently cut or in the free agent pool the previous season, you can resume their career from any season you want after the previous season. They will progress normally from there until they retire.
3. The offseason timeline has been more defined.
4. Trades have been better defined.
I think the Top 5 pick rule is cool. Those picks will have a lot of trade value as well. It also eliminates the need to bribe new owners. If they receive a poor team, they will still be able to rebuild.
