I guess I am just looking for ways we don't have people bailing on the season after 30 games. But maybe the majority aren't which is great!
You say 'bailing' I say building. Managers are building for next season which happens in a keeper league.
That being said. I'm still going for it. I've been getting alot of offers for my 13th round Nikola Vucevic Just letting managers know, if they want him they are going to have to give me a top 25 player in return. If not, I have no problems keeping him.
Truth is, I respect brwnman as a poster...and maybe I'm being a bit short sighted here. But I'd like to think he had a reason to make that move (besides spite). And if he truly did make that move out of anger (or whatever) maybe he regrets it?..not sure
Hence...I'd like to hear more from brwnman.
Both as a poster and as a player i've never had an issue with brwnman, and I don't think many others have either. So it's most definitely not a personal thing. It wouldn't matter if the ever so likeable Chambs did it or if someone who has caused lots of drama like beastnani or FC did it. Wrong is wrong. If he were to step up and say "yes I made the deal cuz I was pissed, shouldn't have done" it's wiped as far as i'm concerned. But now, not only do I highly question the deal and the motivations behind it, but I wonder what more he's gonna do going forward.
With moves like this, i'd NEVER put money into this league. Other leagues, maybe. This one, hell no. There are just way to many variables that have an effect. Rule changes, attitudes of various posters which I won't name, and I think a major divide in skill level from top to bottom and certain people that really prey on making unbalanced trades with those people.
I'm with you there. As I think Tabak said one of the times you mentioned it before, perhaps if it wasn't a keeper league i'd consider it. Way too many variables that would prevent me from wanting to do it as well. Plus, I think it would have the opposite effect of what you expect it to. Do you think that guys who perennially finish on the bottom of the standings would more likely buy in hoping for a miracle jump to a top 3 finish or that they would just completely drop out altogether.
Make that 31/20/4/2, I have Javale Mcgee, i'll package in Tayshaun Prince and Humphries if your interested?
man the irony

And on top of that he was arguing adamantly with FC about his unfair trades too and saying and how his keeper choices were all better than the ones FC traded away. This league is entertaining, i'll give it that.

Completely agree. Pulling unbalanced trades is one thing. But trying to get a few bucks out of unskilled people is rather mean.
