Same thing in the SS/HH league. One season, made the playoffs...disappeared during the following draft. He opened all SM but not one response. I agree with bheid that a simple 1 sentence response stating he won't be able to return would be better than nothing. Believe me, I understand about health problems and emergencies, but if possible, an attempt should be made to contact someone in the league.
I didn't bring his name up in here because he is known as a good owner and I heard he has health problems.
