    Who is returning for the 2017 season?

    Post by Penny Parker on Mon Feb 06, 2017 8:57 am

    Jay has emailed that he can not participate this year (Portland Video Expos). Who else is not coming back? Please let us know by signing into this post and indicating whether you are returning or not. I will also be emailing the ones we don't hear from so we can get a better idea of how many replacement teams we will need.

    Has anyone heard from Vriez? I've heard from everyone else at this point. Here is the headcount

    17 teams are in
    2 teams are out; need replacements (Portland Video Expos & Brooklyn Meatballs)
    1 team still waiting to hear from (Justin Vriezman, Team DL aka Drunken Dutchmen)

    Great. That means we need two replacement teams. Greg can you send the name and contact info of your friend who is interested to the three commissioners. Also does anyone else have a possible candidate for the other replacement team?

    Agreed. We now have two candidate names for the two replacement teams. We will be checking into each and hopefully making a decision quickly. Then we will hold a dispersal draft for the two teams and we will be ready for the next events in the pre-season schedule. Hopefully on time, as scheduled. We'll let you know as soon as possible.

    PM'd Penny on Sunday. Dunno if that is one of the two or not. If not there is a backup.

    The two new managers will be Adam Greenwood (recommended by Greg Nafziger/AW Millwright) and Matt Stevens (recommended by Deep Freese/Mark Beatty). If any of you have some concerns about either candidate, please let us know. Otherwise they seem like good candidates and will be invited to join the league shortly. Thanks.

    We're back to needing one more owner in order to fill out the league. If anyone knows of someone who might be interested, please let us know.

    Okay, we seem to have a new owner replacement so we're back to a full 20 team league again. Thanks to Mark (Deep Freese). Stay tuned. We'll probably have a dispersal draft between the two new owners in the next week. If people are interested I may set up a live chat session where we can meet the new owners and catch up with each other on off season activities.

    Cuts & callups deadline is March 9th. Dues deadline is March 9th. We will probably start the draft on March 16.
