Ok, more seriously, boogerlips and pfattkatt, two people for whom I in reality have very high regard, have a point: it is important to be sensitive to how things are seen in a progressive league, because today's rivals are tomorrow potential trade partners. This cuts both ways in this argument (I wish I could call it a debate, but it is an argument at this point).
A league, as I wrote in our league forum, consists on the one hand of individual teams and owners that want to win, and on the other is itself sui generis - a thing in itself, a common good to be nurtured and protected. It can be damaged, and the relationships within it, by accusations, by over-doing a strong hand, by the appearance of impropriety or favoritism, by not knowing when to let go something you are unhappy about as frazzman80, another person for whom I have great respect here, points out.
Let's let it go please. The league is a wonderful one. We aren't sure how the games will play out, and advantages don't last forever. My team currently sucks but I love it as no other I have had in WIS so far (the SF Fishermen in SSSP). When they lose I am sad because this unusual cast of characters deserves better, when they win I am overjoyed because usually the odds are agin' 'em.
Let's let it go and play ball, but let's also try to be aware that when we build up an overwhelming advantage, or what seems to be one (have to play the games to see for sure) there will be some hard feelings. Otherwise I expect you all to start rooting for the Yankees ! yeah, right.
How did I do boogerlips? Still in the running ?
