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.
