I realize it's still early, but I think we need to get this rollin a bit. The intentions thread has been up for 3 weeks and only 5 people have checked in. Not a huge deal, but I know how picky we need to be about who gets in this league should we need replacements and how long it takes to find them. There is a lot more that needs to be done as well, such as making the rules clearer and perhaps tweaking some rules.
I know the lockout is kind of limiting what we can do, but we have plenty more to do than just free agency. Im sure the commishes are busy, but I have plenty of free time and would love to help clean up the boards, etc. (sounds like wacoug can help too). I have a lot of great ideas on making this league better without changing much and a lot of free time, so I'd love to help. (contractual rules need some improvement, IMO)
For starters, I think we need to make a check-in deadline of June 1 before we start looking for replacements. After that, we need to find replacements and have some kind of instant messaging/normal cafe message board meetings on ideas/rules changes/whatever. After that, the rules could use a re-writing, then the draft, and we go from there.
Let me know what you guys think. This is the best league on the cafe, and I just wanna get it going ASAP because the sooner the better IMO. There is a lot to do to keep it that way
