I'll come back but if you are going to change rules you probably want to find someone to run the league and get it filled up soon or you miss any chance to change the rules. I have an infant at home and don't really have the time to run a league so don't ask me :).

Would like to come back with or without changes.

I'd come back as well, but I agree something should be done about keepers. Either full redraft and set new rules, implement escalating rounds for keepers or a combo of both. Maybe allow everyone to select 1 or 2 keepers and then redraft with some sort of escalation in place.

I wouldn't mind running the league now that things have calmed down a bit in my life. However, so far we'd have commitments from only 6 of 14 members. Obviously there is no way we could retain the rosters/structure we've had with such a commitment (but it is still quite early).

Would you guys rather we continue the league with the same rosters and find replacements for those who do not wish to continue (and attempt to revamp the current keeper system), or start fresh with a new league fixing all the issues we have with this one?

Either situation works for me, although if every non returning team has 2 good keepers it might be easier to revamp the keeper system and find replacement owners. In the meantime I'll get BigKen to activate this league.

I want to come back to this league - not least because I won it! :)

I'm in favour of escalation of keeper picks, but I'm against changing the numbers of keepers or redrafting. I really don't see why escalation can't be implemented on the 5 keepers as per the league set up.

One word about my current status - I have a new job where we are locked out of a lot of sites, so it will be more difficult for me during working hours (and this job keeps me very busy), so there may be times when I'm away from the computer. I will try to minimise this during the draft by using the buddy system, but there may be times when I cause a delay - (hopefully not very many). Of course, being in the UK will mean the first half of the day you guys are all asleep anyway!

BTW we debated the keeper thing a lot last year (there are at least two good threads below), and everyone who voted in the poll was in favour of escalation. So let's try not to go over old ground too much, and make a speedy decision which we can implement this year. :-D
