leave them alone? why meddle with other teams? as long as they don't start dropping players left and right there is no real problem.

Don't invite the owners back for next year -- that's the most reasonable thing you can do.

Simply freeze them. That's it.

This happens. Just leave them alone. It's such a bummer, though... especially when those teams have guys you want to make trades for.

Like was said above, if you fear they may dump at some point, freeze the rosters. If not, just leave them alone... you can't edit their rosters b/c it would be unfair to those who have to play them after that point.

You mean INactive? :-D

Do this:
Lock each inactive team from making external roster moves, that is, the team cannot make transactions involving players other than the ones on the current roster.

If a manager gets back to updating the starting lineup again daily/weekly, then the team can be externally unlocked.

The word is inactive, and you shouldn't do anything. Don't play with them next year. All you can do.

Dang that sucks...I hate when that happens. I think you should just let them be and screw them next year.

I wouldn't be too quick about locking teams. I remember a very good owner in one of my leagues once did nada for two months, simply because that was what his strategy dictated (and he wasn't being hit by injuries, obviously). I think he finished second that year...
