Half a suggestion, half a collection of ideas or, maybe, a place to reject it totally.
I think there needs to be a better place for the newb. We probably all started with SLB, or one of the other simulations, and we started with the 10 game free exhibition season to see how it works.
With HBD, they get dunked in the water cold.
The ultimate in my head is to have newb only leagues with volunteer moderators (who gets comped the same as private league commish). A place where everyone is new, where they can all make their mistakes at the same time.
I've mulled a pro con list;
-Newb rape free
-Commish can answer questions in the league chat, and can be proactive in bailing out rookie mistakes
-level playing ground
-hard to do with a dynasty league. Do you run 2 seasons so they see the rollover, then wipe the league clean?
-commish passed on their biases
Any thoughts, additions, complete rejection?
