Waiver Periods for Thursday Night Games
Waiver periods make it fair so everyone has a chance to bid on a new free agent. However, the normal waivers process on Wednesday morning after the Sun/Mon games. Even if I put the minimal waiver time (1 day), it won't unlock those dropped players until AFTER the Thursday games. It seems pretty ridiculous that a player that is dropped in the wee hours of Wednesday morning couldn't be picked up until the following week simply because they play on Thursday. For example: NYJ defense dropped during normal waivers (Wed a.m.). NYJ play Thursday against Browns. NYJ defense not available until NEXT WEDNESDAY. That is stupid.
All players on waivers should process to free agents at a set time the NEXT DAY if your waiver period is 1 day. Say like 9a CST to give everyone ample time to check.

Agreed. I posted the same thing as well with suggestions.
