The precedent was set, and this rule follows logically from existing rules:
There was some ambiguity between our existing rules and what Yahoo allows regarding (a) eligible free agents and (b) handling the free for all period. The following precedent was voted on (though indirectly: we voted to remove James Jones from Kiah's roster, and this is a general articulation of how we decided that specific issue) and set:
"If Yahoo does not make a player eligible for the Tuesday waiver bidding (i.e., the player was dropped too late to be eligible for the Tuesday waiver bidding), that player will not be an eligible free agent for that week, including during the free for all period. The player will be an eligible free agent the following week."
