Gotcha.  Just seems weird as he was pumped about the league and very active.  If he wasn't coming back I'm glad we found a replacement so quick.

I talked to Dan, the Reds owner, for that info.  He forwarded me the messages where Geoff told him he would not be coming back. 

I am more than aware of the waiting list.  All 3 of them were contacted on Saturday and asked if they would like to join.  They were given a deadline of Noon Monday so that I could start to fill teams in other ways so that we can be somewhat close to full for the draft.  GR80 has declined to join the league and Billy has still not responded 3 days later.

Thanks for the update.

To my knowledge we had 30 committed owners and 29 completely active owners at years end. Since the baseball season doesnt kickoff until April a lot of guys simply take some time off site after the long year.

I am in another league on another site with Geoffthescout, he has not indicated to me in any way he wasnt returning to this site to finish his rebuild.

48-96 hour windows for people to respond when theyve already signed up and indicated a willingness to return, im just not positive thats in the leagues best intetest. Thats why we have open forums and discussions before we take permanent actions.

The draft is layed out, any team not making a pick is to be auto picked, it doesnt say replaced. With all do respect to Dan, ownership in Bush league and recruitment wasnt up to Dan.

Be careful here. This is/was a healthy and vibrant league because of hard work and discussion.

I will fall back & watch where all this is headed, ive given my 2 cents.

    Today at 12:19:06 AM
  • Daddy: Yeah, its not a good early lineup.
    Today at 12:24:56 AM
  • Daddy: To be fair teams can only have a max 5 primetime games scheduled per year. Thats already a 3rd of the season.
    Today at 12:25:36 AM
  • Daddy: Thursday games auto kills one, and then there are Sunday night games.
    Today at 12:26:04 AM
  • Daddy: Teams like the Rams, Chiefs, Pats, Eagles, Cowboys, the best teams are on 5 times already. MNF tries to anticipate what they can.

    Today at 01:05:29 AM
  • Daddy: Ok my friend
    Today at 01:07:57 AM
  • Brent: We have a 12 NFL week season.  To get 16 games in that season and to not have our multiple oppenent weeks schedules during NFL bye weeks, the schedule had to be front loaded.  2 oppenents weeks 1-2 and 3 oppenents week 3, then single oppenents to finish out the season with the last 3 games, NFL weeks 10, 11, 12 NFLC weeks 14, 15, 16 are all against division opponents.
    Today at 01:08:19 AM
  • Daddy: Its different.
    Today at 01:10:16 AM
  • Daddy: Week 3 becomes the most important week of the year.
    Today at 01:11:01 AM
  • Daddy: Go 0-3 and it would take a month to overcome that.
    Today at 01:11:30 AM
  • Brent: It is
    Today at 01:11:47 AM
  • Brent: Don't go 0-3
    Today at 01:12:20 AM
  • Brent: WCE will go 0-3.  All of his best players are on the bench for tanttastic results.
    Today at 01:13:06 AM
  • Daddy: The Bye Weeks were always just a random byproduct in my schedules. Fair for all because we all had 1. Each week was worth 2 games but that was a condensed schedule because we started late.
    Today at 01:13:48 AM
  • Daddy: It is creative. Either way this week is the most important. Lets get it!
    Today at 01:16:23 AM
  • Daddy: WCE should be in the playoffs.
    Today at 01:17:09 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I thought through it a lot and to use the NFL scheduling with the size of the league we had to have 16 games and to condense 16 games into 12 weeks to creativity.
    Today at 01:18:02 AM
  • Brent: yeah, but there is not tanking rules so it is what it is.
    Today at 01:18:16 AM
  • Brent: it's what he does
    Today at 01:18:51 AM
  • Brent: there should be some way to address it for next season
    Today at 01:19:50 AM
  • Daddy: Well, if he is fielding eligible guys and purposely not playing his starters, there isnt much to be done.
    Today at 01:22:19 AM
  • Daddy: I made WAR so that you had to start a guy at all times. Someone eligible. If you cana do that then tanking is what it is.
    Today at 01:23:17 AM
  • Brent: yeah, I know
