Posted by rooskie on 12/28/2010 2:13:00 PM (view original):I was in a crappy mood when I posted this...if an owner gives adequate notice, which as yet has been undetermined, he should be able to leave a league with no repercussions. I think an owner needs to let a commish know at least within a day or two of the 120 game date. Running a team into the ground and then giving notice is a little iffy. Owners should run a franchise as if it was real, IMHO. an owner wouldn't run a team into the ground before selling it and we should all show the same courtesy when handing a franchise back to a league.

How about an owner who informs the commish he is not returning, citing "Money real tight right now,cutting back there on other leagues."
The team he is leaving has a payroll of 74M and is in the playoff hunt. Next season's payroll drops to 53M.
Then three days ago, I see he has joined another progressive league.
the user is topkat
he just joined another new league on 1/5/11.
His mantra is join a new prog league, draft for short term and bail.
League started with the '75 season
1.3 - Rod Carew (oh dear)
2.22 - Fergie Jenkins
3.3 - Dave Goltz ('75-'78)
4.22 - Bake McBride (yikes)
5.3 - Manny Sanguillen (good ghad)
6.22 - Steve Busby (uh, yeah - GREAT '75 SEASON)
7.3 - George Scott (another 3 year guy)
8.22 - Jim Todd (that's right - one year wonder relief man)
You get the idea?!? This guy of course went to the world series in '75, stunk in '76, current record 70-57 in '77
then in the dumper.
His intent was to win and bail. Fortunately, he lost to jpccr who went the win and bail route.
The team has been posted in this here theme league classified section, with no takers.
So, I will probably have to offer a free team or run it myself for a season or two.
these owners need to be posted on the wall of shame
He pulled the same stunt in my league that started in 1950.
He won the WS in '51, lost the series in '53. Is leaving a mess
after the current '54 season.
A 15M dollar pitching staff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
