    I don’t think Mike yet knows all the answers. As of a few days ago half of one of the pro leagues was still empty as GMs hadn’t responded. I think there is still some flail occurring. No one is going to get screwed here. Mike has a fair plan.

    ^I have to admit. This is very odd for you to speak so confidently about somebody.
    Do you guys know each other personally?

    What do YOU know about the team added up to Experts/Stanley?

    I ran it in 12/13, 13/14, 14/15. Three years.
    And then I handed it over to horrorfan - and we talked about it offline annually.
    I probably have the 2nd most time ever spent on maintaining these leagues (to horrorfan).


    [*I even have "DummyCommishTeams" that finished last every year just to renew the leagues - even if it puts a hit on my Yahoo merit.]

    It’s a great set of leagues. If you’re interested in taking over again I’m sure Mike would be willing to hand it off. I’d say if you have a concern about the fairness of a promotion or demotion you’d be best served by asking Mike in a PM what’s up vs. posting here about it. We all know Brandon is the man and one of the most liked and smartest dudes on this forum. He can probably take care of himself. And maybe there have been PM conversations between Brandon and Mike and even you. If so, share with the group as it seems you feel that has not produced a satisfactory result and so you’ve made it public?

    3. What were merits of the team that got horrorfan's spot?
    This is what I asked, yes - publicly, obviously.
    There have been a few forum members recently that have asked about joining the Experts (or PRO) league directly - which is a big NO-NO.
    EVERYBODY knows this.
    A person has to EARN their way up to these leagues.

    So... I think it's fair for everybody to understand what happens if an existing (horrorfan) team leaves.
    What is the protocol for filling that spot?

    There's nothing negative here.
    It SHOULD be publicly disclosed - but I haven't seen it yet.

    I'll wait on Mike's response.
    If he's a good commissioner, the team will have merit (3rd place) from the finish in PRO league last year.
    That's the only way to award an available spot in Experts/Stanley.

    That's probably what Mike is doing. There is no way anyone else than a 3rd rank Pro league finisher will get the invite for the open slot in the Experts league. As having commissioned these leagues (badly, for only a year to be fair), Mike is probably waiting for a response from one of these owners before announcing who will get that spot.

    Managing these leagues can be incredibly frustrating because you can have to be a really nagging commish in order to get the responses you need to fill all the leagues. Let's give Mike a break, he's probably working on it.

    The Stanley league has 12.
    We are not waiting on him to make a decision on a 12th - he made one.

    I know which 7 teams are returning.
    I know which 1 team left (horrorfan) and needed replacement.
    I know which 4 teams qualified through promotion.

    I want to know the reason for the "fill" team... it's in the league, I see it.


    ps. Niconasr - thanks for running the league when you did. It's a thankless job. We all know that.
    Nobody deserves any negative feedback for their efforts.
    But fairness should always be questioned and challenged. A question. An answer. Evaluate. Move on.

    Oh, my bad! Thought it was about a still unfilled spot in the league. Yes, you're right to ask for a simply clarification.

    If you have asked and not received an invitation, please let me know. I am pretty sure I have sent something to everyone but I don't think we have had as many sign up as have asked.

    I heard something about that for this year but it’s never been the case or, if it has, I don’t know about it. And it might have been auction drafts.

    I noticed the option in a draft I was commishing a couple weeks ago. So the answer is yes you can, and it looks like the commish can go back and reset it to a couple picks earlier if something gets messed up.

    That being said I think that should only be used in very specific and necessary circumstances.
