Need three for the 2009 Team Icon Regressive Topic

We need owners for the Mets, Diamondbacks and Rangers for the 2009 Team Icon Regressive. The rules for drafting are below:

Specific League Rules:

Keeper Rules - All players that fall in to the 3 keeper categories below will be forced on their respected franchise. They can not be traded or cut.

CAREER KEEPERS - Any player who has played his entire career for one team (or entire WiS career) will belong to that team. If a player has played for several teams but has only racked up 50 AB or 25 IP in a season for one team he will also belong to the team for which he played the bulk of his career. So if Player A plays four full seasons for the Dodgers, then goes to the Cubs where he only nets 30 ABs and is traded to the Mets where he gets another 30 he will be still be considered a Dodgers Career Keeper.

TEAM ICONS - Any player whose first ten (or last ten) or more eligible WIS seasons are with the same team, and who has had no more than 3 WIS seasons with other teams (including expansion teams) will be designated a Team Icon and belong to the team whom he played 10 years for.
-Any player who racked up more than 25 IP/50 AB with a single active franchise, regardless of seasons with a defunct franchise (or other franchises in which they did not have a total of 25 IP/50 AB) will be the property of the active franchise.

- Any Team Icon being may be placed on IR any season he did not play for your franchise.

- Any player who played every game for an expansion/defunct team or has fewer than 25 IP/50 AB with a single active team will not be eligible to be drafted by any team.


*Every other player who does not fall in to one of these rules will be eligible to be drafted by any team he appeared in 1 game for (any team that shows up on his B-R page at the time of the draft).

The defunct teams are Royals, Rockies, Padres, Marlins, Blue Jays, & White Sox

No takers? All of the teams have pretty solid draft classes, the Mets have by far the deepest draft class in the league (and Carlos Delgado for free.)
12/10/2013 12:20 PM
I am not sure if I understand. The keepers listed only have to be kept if they have the IT or Ck listed next to there name?
Otherwise you don't have to keep them? The draft picks can only be from the pool listed below your team? So the only players that can
be taken from your pool players on those that appear on two or more teams and then become available to a few teams when there pick arises?
12/10/2013 5:53 PM
Yes, you can only draft players who played for your team at some point. Any player who played only for your team you get them automatically (and have to keep them.)

I'll take a 3rd team to keep this league going
12/13/2013 7:57 AM
12/22/2013 5:47 PM
This is a great league, I'd love to see it keep going
1/7/2014 3:48 PM
I concur.
1/13/2014 6:17 PM
If anyone has any interest in playing this league but using one of the defunct teams there is a process we developed for moving franchises. I really would hate to see this league fold.
1/23/2014 10:44 AM
I'll take the Mets!
2/21/2014 2:12 PM
Awesome!! Welcome aboard!! Now we just need two teams and we're ready to go. C'mon in guys, it's a great league.
2/21/2014 2:47 PM
Two more to go. Anyone interested?
