special situation

Postby STEELtownUSA » Thu Sep 09, 2004 7:19 pm

This week was very tough for our league. One of our league members passed away. We want to use some of the prize money for some sort of memorial but we dotn know what to do with his team. Should we have the lm adjust his roster, or should we have one of his good freinds take over his team. He loved fantasy more than anything and we want to do this right.

Very sorry to hear that. :,-(

Obviously, any fantasy league becomes entirely trivial in the face of a tragedy like this, but having a close friend take over sounds like a good idea. Also, renaming your league or the champion's trophy in your leaguemate's honor might be a nice touch.

Again, very sorry for your loss.

I agree, naming your league trophy after him/her would be very touching. Sorry about your loss.

Man,sorry to hear about that,that truly sucks.Definitely honor him in whatever way the rest of the league sees fit.As far as his team,let an interested friend or family member take over...at least that's what I would want.

Again,truly sorry to hear this...

As for the team, I would try and get a family member or friend to take over. If they don't know much of fantasy I'd give them honest and logical advice throughout the season. If you can't get one , I'd get the commish to take over with input from the rest of the league.

Truly sorry to hear about your loss.

Renaming the trophy is a very nice touch. Wouldn't it be great if his team won, too.
