Commish: herd your owners up like a flock of lambs

Postby awwchrist » Tue Jul 19, 2005 10:53 am

In a previous thread I think Arlo or Homeless mentioned a good way to get responses back from owners during the offseason is to include the phrase:

"last one to respond buys pizza at the draft party".

After waiting for a week to get responses back from my first offseason email to my league owners, I got ONE reply.

My second email contained the aforementioned phrase...and voila...all but one replied.

It works.

This is a good topic. I'm having trouble getting responses back from my owners right now. Any suggestions for a free league where we have an email/online draft?

Heck, I almost replied and I'm not even in the league!

Mmm, pizza.---Homer....not that one, Homer Simpson.

That's why those two gents are the scholars that they are. Now it may not be pizza in my league, I may have to bust out the John Daniels card.
