All you can do is learn from it. Plindsey had a great idea. Don't play in them unless you know everyone in the league. And if it happens learn from it and don't play with those guys again.


Yeah, that does suck. I had a draft that happened to this year and it sucked bad.

Guess that's to be expected from someone who can't spell "Favre". :-b

I think he was talking about that one.

Anybody who needs a persistent owner to take an abandoned team under their wing can feel free to drop me a PM, but please no teams that draft Favre in the second round :-b

Maven, I'm just curious, do you think there's a problem in the Kind of a Big Deal draft? I think it's been fine after the draft for the most part...

Oh yeah, I'm going to beat you tomorrow. I am kind of mad you have Steven Jackson but I will most certainly be rooting for him to rip the Panthers for 4 touchdowns. I just hope the rest of your team doesn't do anything. :-b :-D

How making a list of people who have dropped/ignored a Cafe league and making it available for anyone looking to create a Cafe league, so they can see if a prospective invitee is someone who may be unreliable?

We should probably include what they said when they quit, if anything and why it isn't valid, to be fair so people aren't just thrown on the list ;-D
