    League News

    Hi guys,

    I am opening some things up for discussion here.

    1. wildcatter78 has left the league. He wanted to play as OU and only had time for one dynasty.

    2. Pryor2 and Mallard Muscle have not logged on the the dynasty or posted on this site in a week. As far as I know, they are not on vacation or anything.

    What do you guys think I should do about #2? I have been pretty agressive about trying to get active members in the league. Do you guys think I should be trying to recruit their spots or what? Keep in mind these are two of the most inactive members of the dynasty.

    Shaun

    I'm assuming this is for the West. For item #2, that is a tough one. I would say let them explain when they come back. If that isn't by the end of the weekend, I would give them the axe. Maybe something bad happened. In the meantime I would start recruiting people, but tell them that it is contingent upon their returning. I dunno Shaun, tough spot.

    I say you drop the big leg on 'em Hulk Hogan style, brother!

    Seriously, not logging in is the same as quitting. It's like telling a girl you don't want to see her anymore by simply not calling her. Just listen to Pryor and Mallard - they're speaking pretty loud.

    Anyway, that's how I see it.

    I was under the impression these were two very active guys from last season and the time leading up to this season. I have no idea what's going on and know that there are more important things in life than video games but it's unlikely that either of them hasn't been able to get online once in the past week and drop a quick note about what's happening. A week without any posts on TF is one thing, but to not log in and recruit or play your games for 2 weeks in the season is another.

    Do you have any other ways of trying to contact them to find out what's up? i.e. email/text message.

    Just checked their accounts and their last activity on TF was 8/16 and 8/17 for pryor and mallard respectively.

    BOOT THEM!!! I just left a dynasty because I didnt have time for so many. I tried to do it with a class act. I made sure they were aware before the next Advance. If they have not attempted to contact you, get some new active members in here!

    Neither of these guys was really around last season. They were added when most of use dropped out after playing for 10 months.

    Alright guys,

    The result of the post is this:

    1. Pryor 2 (o Pills o) has been removed as Nebraska.
    2. Mallard Muscle (ThePheonixSun) has remained in the league, but is on thin ice.
    3. Bruce80 has been asking for Oklahoma since before the league started, so since #1 occurred I allowed him to move to the Big 12. This does put him in slightly better position as far as this years record goes, but I figure the loss in recruiting balances that.
    4. Since I allowed Bruce to move, I also allowed Sweetness to move from Washington to Cal. He is taking over a team that is 3-3. Due to the in-season move in conference, I am not going to make GoGators play Sweetness again. The week that Arizona State plays Cal, Cal will be CPU controlled. I do not feel it is fair to give someone another shot at a team due to a switch.
    5. We have a new member in Sixthdis108, who will be playing as Iowa.
    6. Wildcat has left the league due to time commitments.

    So, we have 1 spot left. If anyone knows anyone solid, let me know.

    Also, I am not going to allow team moves during the season anymore. The only reason I did here was I know Bruce is a Sooner Homer, and it would be a dick move to allow him to move and not allow Sweetness.

    Shaun

    Oh yeah, it's awesome that people get to switch teams too. The Bruce one is fine but the Sweetness one is a bit much. (No offense to Sweetness) But I just beat the guy last week, now I gotta play him again. Awesome. So he knows my offensive gameplan this year and my team and he gets to play me with a whole new squad and gameplan. Really fair.

    Like I told you in PM. I screwed up advancing early tonight. I moved a bunch of people around in the dynasty and there were unplayed games due to the moves (Bruce, Sweetness) and also there was a user game that didn't get scheduled. I looked through the games and didn't see a reason NOT to sim it so I could go to bed earlier (not that that will happen now). I obviously didn't see that your game was unplayed. I wouldn't have simmed it otherwise.

    Just for everyone's notice...Mallard has had no activity in this league since he posted the above post.

    If he doesn't play his game before I roll the league over tonight, we have a Pac-10 spot open if anyone knows a good replacement.
