Our 20-team keeper league has been around since 1991. We have an incredible group of long-time core owners. We also have some stinkers.
Last year we indirectly asked two teams to leave. One team had just joined that year and it was obviously too much for him. The other team had been around about five years, but controversy constantly surrounded him as he made unfavorable trades with one specific team, and was difficult to deal with for other teams. So there is precendence...
The next team we're monitoring this year has also been around about five years. He always enjoys the draft, knows his stuff at the time, and seems very gung-ho about everything. But after the draft he disappears - rarely makes transactions, never initiates trade talks, when he does trade it's seemingly to whoever can contact him first, doesn't or belatedly returns emails, and just plain doesn't mind his team. We recently pried an email response from him that said "I'll have to look at my roster soon." I am astonished each year that he returns.
His good qualities are that he's nice, doesn't cause problems, pays every year, and doesn't intentionally do any harm.
My opinion is that he is passively harming our league and should be given one more season to show us something or we'll ask him to leave.
Too harsh? Should we be Nazis or embrace diversity?
