Who wants to play in a league where 1 guy never meets a deadline, continually holds up drafts and delays the start of a league? Not just frustrating for the commish... but frustrating for the majority of owners. Strike one, strike two, strike three you're out!

I like Ron.  He's slow in getting his keepers and stuff in but is a solid owner and always let me know what's going on and his time frame.
TJ, you got more than I did.

In one of the leagues I run, I give new owners an extra pick at the end of the 1st round as an incentive to join.   You might want to run that by your league to see if they would approve of the that.   It might help.

FWIW, I have very little difficulty filling openings.

I prefer socialist....

Well, you weigh the good and the bad.   Ron fields a competitive team, is polite in communication, and active on the league boards during the season.  He's ok in my book.


With that being said, I haven't heard from him in 5 or so days. So I made a pick for him.

I don't mind the delays... in fact, I kind of welcome them. Keeps me from being the last one in all the time!

Please add "outbacker" to the wall. No response to his disappearance from the SSSP. All sitemails were opened but he never responded.

Outbacker has health issues. He's been really private about them, but I know he's spent time in the hospital on more than one occasion.

I understand RL issues and I'm not overly demanding. If SM is being opened just a reply either way is all I ask for.

true dat-it's the people who disappear with no word, especially when they open sitemails, than is extremely aggravating

everyone has things come up, no big deal, just a quick word to say "I'm out" or something of the sort means a lot

I would give Outbacker the benefit of the doubt, he's a good owner, and I noticed that he just has 3 baseball teams in his profile.  So it probably is his health.

I don't think that his actions are Wall worthy.

2 questions, did he trade away his future and leave your league with a crummy team ???  Probably not.

Is he joining other leagues???

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.

Not a huge fan of the wall of shame, I realize stuff comes up and people have to leave.  BUT blatant cheating is something different and that is what Disco Dogs did in the 80's Eliminator progressive.  He entered his '84 team with all '84 players.  Once the commish verified his roster, he withdrew his team and reentered with '89 Jose Oquendo instead of '84 Jose Oquendo because he did not draft enough 2B AB's.  It took the entire season before he was caught, then he threw a fit and was kicked out of the league.  Definitely not in the spirit of the game and not the type of owner I would want in my future leagues.

Edit* Admin was also able to verify this happened.
