Withdrawing my offer for Colorado. Made other commitments since. Seeing that the commissioner has not accepted me in the game yet, I found a more organized league instead. Please reject my in game join request. Thanks

I apologize for being a bit absent over the last week. I got slammed at work, but I should be good now.

I think this is a league worth saving. Souray guided it well for two months, but I'm sure it gets a bit tiresome after a while to sit through the long advances and manage 29 other players.

Perhaps he'd agree to a short break? Allow someone else to pick things up and drive on to the playoffs? There are a few other very active GMs who have posted in the past few pages who might be willing to take up a "Deputy Commissioner" role?

Apologize for the delay guys. Lots of work and new game fever led me to ****ing up activity wise.

Off the next few days and this ship is getting righted. Doing the sim now. Playoffs around the corner and new replacement GM's on the way.

We've had some previously good GM's quitting games. From here on out, make no mistake, although 2nd chances are being given now for those with a proven history of being good GMs. Any reports from here on out however and you are gone no possible chance at reinstatement. Can't have quitting it spoils the entire league for everyone. Put your controller down and walk away if you need to leave the game don't quit or you are gone.

Next sim goes late Thursday evening i'm giving an extra day here since I have been away and need to get everyone back and some people replaced. That will done by the end of today as i'm currently watching my roomies little guy and then watching some football.

Have faith in the league, absolutely going places and worth keeping involved in. My mistake for giving you all reason to doubt.

I think the goal has to be two-fold:

1) Push on to and through the playoffs at all costs--with as few delays as possible. I've seen quite a few leagues break down during the playoffs. If the games don't get done quickly, non-playoff teams start to drift away, etc.

2) Figure out what we need to do going forward for next year. It might be tricky to get people to come in and use the bottom-feeding teams at this point in the season--and they actually might be more appealing at the beginning of the offseason.

We also need to figure out how to get the Chatzy going again.

In terms of other changes (for next year), I think we should think about how we can keep things progressing more efficiently. One way might be to force players to make all their teams CPU playable--but only on the last day of the window. To do this, we'd also need to have everyone with a CPU quit rate over 0 drop out and rejoin--then we can impose a strict no-quitting rule against both players and CPU.

(I'm guilty of this as well--though a few nights ago the servers dropped twice while I was playing the Caps--thus my inflated %)

Down to 23rd place in the league. Probably shouldn't have traded my first round pick...

Battle of the bottom-feeders?

EDIT:

2 v. 1 (in shootout)

I can't remember the last time I scored more than two goals in a game in this league.

Whoever created the Chatzy for this league, can you clear it? There's some odd stuff in there. Perhaps change the settings to allow anyone to clear it?

We need to get it active again.

EDIT: apparently the original creator is no longer in the league, which leaves us without an administrator.

Might I suggest we migrate to a new room? http://us6.chatzy.com/58423653001163

Souray, if you get a chance, change it in the OP?

It might make sense to edit the thread title to encourage potential new players to add their names to a waiting list. Let's clean house, then offer the new players their choice on the available teams.

That's what I like to see! Looks like we need a new BOS GM as well.

So it sounds like you are going to clean house and get rid of inactives, I'd like to be put on the waiting list for a team, Jack knows me from the Flyers Board league that recently went inactive. If you are going to be getting rid of some inactive users I'd prefer to wait for that to happen before I pick one of the three teams avail currently.
