No problem. ;-D I had been following along with the draft on Yahoo from the very beginning, updating every couple rounds or so. And Red, thanks for the reminder on the waiver priority. It is now set to inverse draft order.


Like I promised, I created a thread for a post draft questionnaire/analysis. So if you feel like putting in your $.02, please do. I'll be posting mine later today. ;-D

Hey all,

I unfortunately won't be back this season. It's been great, but wifey is pregnant and has this crazy idea that babies take up a lot of time. Cutting down on most of my leagues this year.

It's been a great league these past few years, thanks for having me.

;-D

Unfortunately, we're in the same boat as before. We only have 8/14 agreeing to come back, with a couple still unaccounted for.

I think realistically, replacing almost half the league is just not doable - not only in actually finding that many dedicated owners to take over defunct teams, but it will also clearly have an impact on the quality of the league.

A few people have responded with some potential alternatives, such as reducing the league size, but I think that would have profound effects on the keeper system we have in place. If we were to do that, I think starting with fresh rosters would be the only option (as much as it pains me to say that, since I'd say I have a pretty good one as is). A few others PMed me suggesting that we fold, and I truly appreciate that honesty. So at this point, I think the above are our only two realistic options - disbanding, or putting together a new league (unless we can figure out another alternative).

If we opt for the latter, I sadly cannot continue as commish. I've just encountered a family situation involving illness, and I simply cannot dedicate the time needed for that responsibility. If we figure a way to keep things going, or if we put together a new league, I would be more than happy to participate.

So those still interested in the outcome of this discussion, please voice your opinions in this thread. Thanks guys.

A third option would be be to take a years hiatus. Maybe next year situations will change and we can pick up where we left off.

At the risk of appearing a vulture, the LFOD dynasty league is looking for a replacement owner. Bwanna is our commish and if anyone is interested drop him a line at the Cafe league site.

And at the risk of appearing like a second vulture, I've been in the LFoD league since its inception and I highly recommend it. ;-D
