    This is your leader speaking.

    I'm in. I am happy with any format. I'm not really concerned with winning, so I don't spend a lot of time on (any) of my fantasy teams.

    If you want to kick my butt, make the league complicated. If it's too simple, my superior GM skills will assert themselves and devastate any and all opponents.

    End transmission.

    I'd be in again, and any format is fine with me.

    He means that in hockey a guy can get injured on a monday or tuesday and you won't be able to replace him until the next week. It happens fairly frequently in hockey.

    The baseball reference was Jammer being his obnoxious and petty self and kicking me when I was down because my baseball team thinks it's a football team with all the injuries in the first two weeks of the season. :gun1::gun1::gun1:

    I guess I don't like the idea of weekly. But limitting overall roster moves should keep people from streaming their players, right?

    I checked these out and still didn't find a ton of info on what happens if someone leaves, but I think it happens, so they have provisions for it.

    It looks like it can get pretty complex though. You can institue salary caps and whatnot, which kind of takes away the fantasy if you ask me.

    Before we go any further, is anyone opposed the the idea of a keeper league, and does anyone have any concerns about it.

    Dispersal draft if someone leaves. Happened all of the time in the CFL during the 90s. :(

    I don't know what a "keeper" league is.

    I don't like the idea of a weekly league. I didn't like it in baseball and I don't think I would like it in hockey. Its not necessary, and its very frustrating when someone is hurt or playing poorly and you can't dump him.

    I think the idea of doing a lot of homework is for the guys like Tater. Personally, I got fed up with homework when I was in college, 50 years ago. I'm retired now, have the time, but homework??? Get a life!!!

    I'd be interested in giving a keeper league a try.

    Keeper leagues take a lot of work. Especially by the commissioner, I think. People aren't going to like that, I'm afraid.

    Maybe we can penalize the owners who spend more than 10 minutes a week working on their teams by not letting them set their lineups the following week and taking away 5 free agent moves or something. That will help balance things out.

    So where's the problem? I'm not commissioner. :pound:

    I don't really know a lot about keeper leagues. I thought it was basically the same as any other league, but you were able to keep a specific # of players from year to year.

    If that's all there is to it, the added work would be mostly limited to a bit more prep work during the off season (but I could be wrong, I've never been in one before).

    I like the idea of one for the fact that it adds some more strategy to the equation. Short term slumps and long term injuries would play a bigger role and it would force GMs to really consider things before making roster moves.

    But I'm also happy with the current way we do things. If it's too much work, I'm fine with what we have now. (since Darth isn't man enough to give it a go)

    Keeper league would be fun. You know I wouldn't have dropped Dany Heatley in the last week if it was a keeper league...

    Actually, in a keeper league, I would have had tougher decisions about dropping Mat Sundin and Rob Brind'mour when they had season-ending injuries.

    Maybe we'll keep the keeper league as a secondary option. If we get the normal league up and running, then maybe more serious players may want to commit to an additonal keeper league.

    So, for now I'd say let's stick with the current format, and if there is enough interest in a keeper league we can address that later.

    And I don't know that it was ever a real suggestion, but it seems pretty clear that weekly line-up changes are unpopular.

    I don't want to do anything that excludes Woody. So you guys should help sell him on keeper leagues if that's your thing.

    Btw, everyone cheering for Keeper Leagues better be prepared to be a Commish!

    Simple explanation, you keep your roster, season to season. You actually manage a franchise, not just coach one year at a time.
