    this is a tough one. I bodies saying yes but my mind is saying no.

    I think it could come out un-fair if certain users have to play several more user vs user games than other members....... but the again... If I was new to this league, I would want to play all my games and it just doesn't feel right now allowing a user to play his games.

    For fairness, could a new user their choice of the 2 worst teams in either conference?

    Right. The reason why I posted a poll or asked for advice is because I can see both sides.

    Yes, allowing them to play users to me is kind of unfair. If had been a little earlier in the year, then I would have no problem at all with it. Derrr came in a couple weeks ago and I felt that he should be able to play whoever. Now, it is going to be week 12 and the story is a little different.

    No, not allowing them to me is bringing up the point of waiting till the end of the season then.

    I think because we keep having users drop every year or so, I will bring them in as a weaker team as stated above by bcduggan. Also, if anybody wants to switch to a different team or wants to go to the other conference, you should let me know now.

    What I do want, is for the new users to be able to recruit for the rest of the season. I know it doesn't make up a lot of ground but it is better than nothing.

    When I joined I didn't think it would have been fair to get a good team. That's why I asked for a weaker team. I would have been just as happy with Stanford or WSU as I am with Washington. Granted they would have been more frustrating and the learning curve with those teams would have been greater. I think I said I wanted Stanford off of the list you gave me but you gave me Washington because they were I think you said average.

    Here's what you do - you give a user who has been loyal to the league but has been playing with a bad team the choice to upgrade to either Ohio State or Wisconsin. I'm sure someone would prefer to be a better team that is in here right now. I know I would! Then, you make the "new users" take over whichever teams got vacated for the upgrade atleast for the rest of the season. That way, no one has to play extra user games if a new guy takes a random team.

    Example:

    DerrrFree22 switches to Ohio State. New guy takes over Arizona State for the rest of the season. At the end of this regular season - then the new guy can leave for a school he desires more. This way, no extra user games are played.

    The point being that a loyal user gets the option of upgrading to a better situation - the new guy has to play out this season to prove he is a good member - and then after the year we can shuffle the new guy if he prefers to be a different team.

    Just put a post up - asking current members if they are interested in Ohio State or Wisconsin - whoever has "seniority" gets them. New guy fills the vacated team and can prove he is worthy and can recruit for that team and then at the end of the season he can choose to stick with it or move on to a team he likes better that is available.

    Actually, Bk had already asked me if you wanted to take Oregon.

    I would then offer Bk or ryty to take over Wisconsin & tOSU because they have been around the longest. Bcduggan would have the next seniority of upgrading to Cal? NDcolts could take over Washington. If, Mr.2Bits decides to join, he could take over Oregon State.

    That's a perfect plan CA. We need the most committed users at the top schools to keep the league legit. I think that would be a good switch - also I remember NDColts is a big time Illinois fan - so if BK takes Ohio State and Wisconsin is still free - he might want to go with Illinois instead of Wisconsin.

    YES!!! I would love to take Oregon. Something about playing for my Rival Beavers just rubs me the wrong way.

    Thing is, out of the users we have that would or could switch. I would have to give the first choice to ryty32, since he has been here from the beginning. Then, bkhogfan51 would be next.

    Ok, with the switch:

    Bkhogfan51-tOSU
    Lee.Flex-Oregon

    bcduggan, now is your chance to switch..

    NDColts, who would be your top 2. 1 from B10 , 1 from P10

    Controller, I would love to get out of Arizona State. Once BK and RyTy make their selections - and the dominoes start falling can you consult with me before you let NDColts and Mr2Bits make there selections? I would prefer to be out of ASU.
