    So at this point, I'm assuming that we're down 3 teams.

    Fresno
    Milwaukee
    Richmond (?)

    Any thoughts on how to proceed?

    Kill Fresno and Milwaukee, keep Richmond on Otto. Disperse the 2 dead teams.

    Restructure to two 15 team leagues, 3 divisions each, division winners + 2 wildcards in playoffs for each league, two wildcards play 1st round, giving division winners all a bye.

    We made these changes in part to attract new owners, so go forth and attract new owners.

    I kinda like this idea.

    I have tried and will continue to try. As I've said, getting owners at all for a normal league is extremely difficult. Getting them for our old setup was impossible.

    32 teams is too much.


    Smaller league, you'll have the teams more consistently filled.

    It's very symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing.

    Update:

    I'll put out a schedule this week and we'll get going. I'm trying to recruit, so we'll hold off on contraction.

    The problem is: we're on an old version of OOTP. Few people want to play v17.

    Once we upgrade to v19, we may be able to fill back up.

    This is fucking pitiful.
    13 teams on auto in the first round without a list.... so far.

    If you can't get excited about and participate in the first round of a draft, why the hell bother?

    I say we roll this shit back and tighten this shit up, downsize to 24 teams, and start over at January 1 with a dispersal draft followed by an amateur draft.

    Either that or just say tah tah to this league. Yeah we're all old and all have shit to do. But if you don't have time for this game, say so. I mean shit, Shaw is putting some effort into keeping us afloat, but it just feels like we're sinking fast.

    This will be my last season running things without changes to increase participation of some kind.

    I appreciate all of your effort to keep the league running, Steve, and understand your desire to step down.

    I just wanted to say thanks.
