    Alright fellas, I've got good news, and bad news. Bad news first. Real life has gotten in the way. I've been forced to cut my leagues down due to a second job, and a promotion at one of those jobs. That, along with a possible TMFL spot, means my time will be drained. You guys deserve better than that, someone who is dedicated to this league. So, here comes the good news. MS8403 Will be the new commish of Against the Grain. I'll be getting him mod abilities, so he can edit anything he sees fit, and I'll also be around to help out in the short term if need be. While MS isn't the most active person in this Online Dynasty, he has consistently gotten the best reviews for the season and a half we've played. That, and his leadership, should keep this league going and keep it a fun league for all. I'll let him decide when this next week is due, and also whether or not he wants to continue the User Reviews. MS, if you want the spreadsheet I have, updated to now, then I'll email it to you.

    I don't think we need to change anything unless there are some suggestions on how to improve the league. I'm going to start trying to be more active. This weekend was a bad weekend for me with the holiday, so I've kind of been MIA.

    It looks like we have a user game, so we'll set the hard advance to Wednesday evening.

    I'd definitely like to get through this season before make changes. I didn't notice the Wisconsin owner left. I expect some people to leave with Marty, but as long as we can keep a core group of guys, we may be able to add others. We need to create some stability first.

    Well Im willing to wait. I was a sad panda when Wisconsin got taken and I panicked and took Utah (didnt have a plan b) and complete regret that choice. Cant run, cant pass and thats against non player teams. Player teams destroy me...

    We got in the MSU Iowa game. I've had such issues accessing the forums here, not sure if its the firewall at work or not. But congrats to the new commish.

    What can I do to help?

    If you are getting a 500 error, I suggest using Chrome(if you're not already) and clearing the cache/cookies and what not. Meanwhile, the TSO window not being open.

    Thanks. Cleared chase/cookies and it did the trick. I will not subscribe to one piece of trash a scam of a company like Google produces. Just my feelings... :)

    If you, or anyone else in the OD has ideas, I would start a NEW thread to keep them separate (and delete any other BS), then at the end of the season we can vote on different ideas. I am absolutely committed 100% to keeping this OD going strong. Let me know if you need any help with anything.
