My mom passed this summer. Each person deals w/ things differently.
I think the big theme over these 11+ pages is simply send a sitemail...

Even through my loss, there is always time. I understand in the real scheme of things WIS = nothing but a diversion.
But still...a sitemail...... And alot of this is moot.

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.

Hate to say it but shawbigred has gone AWOL from a league again after being in 1 season.  I just took over the team recently.   "Fool me once..."

BUT, he has 2 teams in juice's tournament that is just about to begin the second round, and he HAS been active for ther AL/NL choice, and for the years to use for pitching and hitting. He made those selections while ignorring sitemails from 2 different football leagues that were drafting at the same time.

ronblood recently did it in XYZ and will go on the beware and forewarned board. He was always late posting keepers and finally didn't even reply to sheller and vanished.
meh. ronblood did me right, he gave plenty of notice before he left, and his team was way over .500

cain a guy have some fun, move from league to league, like going through girlfriends
If you intend to jump league to league, you shouldn't be asking to join a progressive! toss this guy back on the wall.

after conversing with helmethead1, I permitted him to join the new 1982 league.
Unfortunately, he has pulled the same trick again. I replied to his site mail
where he informed me he had to resign due to work, I asked if he was going to send me 
a team via admin/customer service. Site mail opened, but no response.

In the event the thread starter, does not update other users posts of owners to avoid,
I will start a new thread and will update regularly.

Now I need to find a replacement owner 15 rounds into a new league.
If anyone's wall-worthy it's this guy! Get him up there..

Time to add another name to the board. iudane signed up for a couple of my leagues and vanished without a word. Beware!
1/9/2013 7:13 AM
Same here. Iudane signed up for two of mine, posted his rosters and disappeared before the draft could start. No contact in over a month.

add me to the board. i vouched for a guy in two leagues and he's bailed on both. won't do that again.

I would like someone to explain why AFTER a draft is completed, we sometimes wait days and weeks for a league to start play ? 

Even accounting for RL issues - the draft takes time and effort - hours at least for research and drafting, having time set aside or sending proxy requests. 

AFTER a draft all you have to do is click "create team" - how can it take more than 30 seconds ? 

Probably some of the same people are involved in "delay of game" more often. 

There seems to be little tolerance for people who have trouble finding the time for a draft, which instead really does require some commitment of time that may not be available for reasons of health, family, work, travel etc. But there appears to be infinite tolerance for someone who has 25 players sitting in the DC and won't click the little button to create their team so the other 11, 19 or 23 people can play. The Italian word is "prepotenza" for this kind of behavior.

I think both of you, italyprof and Bootone, are right on the mark.  Unfortunately, in some leagues the commissioner is, shall we say, less than organized themself.
Therefore, this affords some owners the opportunity to take liberties.
