it seems that, while we agree that there are other reasons for the issue I raised, the primary one is likely that owners want to play and not sit and wait. That's why they play musical chairs with teams. If everyone hasn't agreed with that, it seems there is consensus at least.
Some owners may not like a world, but in my experience virtually nothing offensive happens in the window of time we're discussing. The saber rattling starts with the first questioned trade or the "calling out" of the guy using a High A caliber player as his #1 SP. In other words, once the season gets under way.
So, if owner impatience is the problem I'm addressing, why would the suggestion *not* have a psoitive effect? You can't just say "owners won't join, they'll wait" as if there's reason to believe that. Maybe *you* would, but it is 180 degrees from the behavior that the group of owners in question has been displaying up to now.
Nothing good can come from forcing people to wait out a world that is taking too long to fill.
Sometimes a bad solution to a problem is better than no solution at all. This is NOT one of those instances. This is just a bad solution, period.
