What the hell


What the hell

I've been waiting a week for my league to start, anxious cuz I got my brother to join. My brother was 11th owner. So finally after a week, a 12th owner joined today. I looked at schedule to seek everyone's starting pitcher, and there was 2 blank. I refreshed page, and we're back to 10 owners!!! What the hell happened and is that often? I raved to brother how cool this site is then this.

Re: What the hell

Yeah, it happens. People dodge when they get the "league is filled" notification, for whatever reason.

Re: What the hell

If you're in a favorite teams league, when a league fills, an owner has something like 24 hours to draft his team. Some people join but don't draft right away and then they procrastinate. They may fully intend to draft, but the league fills, they get an e-mail only if their settings allow, and they don't get there soon enough and they get booted.
If you're in a quick draft league, I think if someone joined and didn't draft, the same thing would happen.
There's kind of a paradox, because when you join a league, you often wait 5 weeks to 2 months for it to fill--that encourages people to put off drafting. Then when it's full--you have to move quickly. This site is about tons of waiting and puncuated bursts of action--like baseball.

It was just getting rid of owners who weren’t doing anything. They hadn’t drafted in all the time you were waiting. Two new owners will join, draft, and you’ll move forward.
