Also, Dobber had the opportunity and resources to keep it going strong e.g. using the annual guide to promote it to get more interest. Since he left it's been a few forum members who tried to keep it going as best they could. I took over during this past season and realised there were some challenges but took them on to see how I can make it grow. Now I'm putting together a plan to hopefully get it back to the level of interest there was before. Changes are coming, which will be confirmed later this summer.
    I'm sure you will do a good job, good luck with it!

    Glad to see Bombastic deleted his "move along" post before you and I could have a discussion. That was just awkward how he over reacted.

    Feel free to do that, and I suggest you start another thread about it to keep this one separate. It's not something I'm interested in so I'll leave you to it. Good luck.

    There is no need to have money involved. If that is your motivator, you are looking into the wrong league. There are plenty of money leagues you can join on Yahoo/Fantrax. Take your pick. The Dobber invitational has always been free. The motivation is beating others from the forum and for me, that is a big enough incentive. If that aint good enough for you, then plenty of leagues in the world will happily take you on.

    So... the format, hosting website and league rules, etc... are already decided. If you are interested to take part, stick your hand up. If the format, hosting website and league rules, etc... are not to your liking, I suggest moving on and finding another league. Hell, start up another one. This league path is already chosen.

    Cheers big ears.

    I don't understand the hostility.

    Some of us might want a tiered money league. With different rules/scoring categories. I'm simply gauging interest to see if that's something we can start up. If I'm doing it in the wrong thread I apologize but there's no need to getting hostile.

    I thought both responses to you were quite direct, but pleasant enough. Not sure where you're sensing hostility from.

    Hope you have success with your money league should you decide to go ahead with it.

    There was no hostility from me. I just suggested starting another thread if you want to start a new competition. It's to your benefit as well as people come on this thread for the Invitational only, so you will certainly get more interest that way. I'd also rather keep this thread focused on its original intention.

    Thanks, and good luck.

    That's great. Be sure to keep an eye out later in the summer as there will certainly be more information.

    Agreed, that was weird and an overreaction

    Let it go, get over it, and move on. Stop derailing this thread with your "feelings" please and thank you.

    Feel free to start your own thread about a money league if you want to.

    Let's get this thread back on track and what it was intended for. If you want to participate in this league that horrorfan has so nicely taken the time to administer, then please let him know. If not, then we know how you feel now.

    Again, thank you for your understanding.
