    I'm asking the question since I've moved people around so much and a handful of veterans (RynoAid, antcap24, etc.) are not being their favorite team in the spirit of competition.

    I'm just trying to be fair, the setup I posted is pretty balanced, but I have an idea if the league thinks I should give up my favorite team.

    Here are my honest thoughts...

    You should give them up if you want to give them up. You run the league which takes a lot of time and effort. You deserve at least one perk and for many league owners that means getting your favorite team. So if you want to give them up it should be totally your decision not the league's.

    Being the commish of a league is a thankless job. One of the few potential perks is getting the team you want. If you want the Browns, take the Browns.

    I agree with the others . You are commish, you should get the team you want.

    I laugh at all of the non Browns fans saying having them is a perk lol , clearly they don't understand our pain Shaun :D


    On more serious note I see no issue with you having them, some people got teams they like and some didn't. The league has 32 spots and that's going to happen obviously , as long as you having them is in the best interest of the league or at worst not an unfair advantage then you should not second guess it.

    I also feel like I should vote yes .....

    This is Merica' , where you vote based on your own selfish needs rather than putting the needs of the people first.

    I voted Aliens and agree 100% with this sentiment. You deserve some sort of reward for running the show.

    1) It isn't a thankless job. I get 31 sycophants out of the deal. Y'all mufuckers are my juggalos.
    2) I think it's important that everyone in the TMFL be treated fairly and equally, myself included.

    Anyone that bitches about the team that the commissioner gets is silly. There is a ton of time and energy that goes into that thankless job, the fact he wants the browns is the least we can do.

    You don't see me wanting to switch from
    The 49ers.

    I agree 100% with what Moon stated. You take the time out to run the league, you should get to be whatever team you please in my opinion.

    I say you keep them. It might be the only time the Browns do well.

    Do whatever you want to do. My personal opinion is that I think it'd be boring to be the same team every year even if it's your favorite team. I know plenty of people would disagree with me on that. In Z2H, I opted to take a team I didn't want to make sure the rest of the league got teams they wanted but I could've taken the team I wanted and everyone would've been fine with it. It's just a team and the fun, imo, comes from making whatever team you have into your own team.

    I say keep them, but if it helped balance out the league in a certain scenario I would say give them up.

    The only one who has a legitimate case to complain is antcap24 as far as I'm concerned. If he's fine with you being the Browns, keep them.

    The commish gets first dibs on teams... regardless of anything. It's the least we can support as members.
