Quitting a League Ettiquette

Postby BillyHallDisciple » Sun Sep 02, 2007 2:21 pm

I didn't know what other forum to throw this question on, but we have a 12-team league at work with weekly line-ups, inflexible rules, and a somewhat incompetent commissioner (this year he screwed up the playoff seedings so the wrong teams were matched up against each other - that's just one example).

Anyways, about 6 of us in this league are thinking of getting out of this one and forming a new one. We want it to be an auction-style, keeper-league draft 5x5 league with daily line-up changes, all of which goes against the very vanilla set-up we have in our current league (points league, weekly line-ups, draft style, no keepers). The other 6 people in our current league would not go for this, as they say their lives are too busy to keep up with a daily league and they think an auction is too confusing for some reason.

The thing is though, everyone involved in the current league are all co-workers who respect each other, etc. so how do the 6 of us gracefully bow out of our league without a bunch of hurt feelings? Because effectively what we're doing is killing the league we're currently in, 'cause I honestly don't think they'll be able to find 6 other guys to replace us. Is there a good diplomatic way to do this?

Yes. Be honest and give notice. Tell the commish that you guys aren't happy with the way the league was run and you want to start up a new league. Offer him a spot if you wish but wash your hands clean of the other league.

No problem. The main thing is to be honest, respectful, and timely. Do those and you will be fine.

If that league is as easy as it sounds to keep up with, why not play both?
Be excellent to each other.
