Waiting for new owners to fill leagues


Waiting for new owners to fill leagues

sure would be nice to eliminate some leagues so don't have to wait months for a league to fill out

kind of ridiculous to have to wait so long to start

Re: Waiting for new owners to fill leag

True . I don't join leagues with too many openings. Same is true of slow drafts .They allow a ridiculous amount of time and there are always owners who burn all the time just because they can . This can all be avoided with pre ranking . If the owner doesn't do that,let the sim pick for them. If you gave them a month,they would burn all the time and waste everybody's time looking for something that isn't there

Re: Re: Waiting for new owners to fill

i'm in two leagues right now where the season has finished and just waiting, waiting, waiting for people to join

get's old, feel just like quitting the leagues all together because it just takes too long to have to wait

i feel if there were a lot less leagues they would fill faster

Re: Waiting for new owners to fill

Part of the problem is that the 1st people in have the entire Pool of talent to draft from and generally have an advantage on the people who join after the fact, it's not a GIVEN that the 1st teams drafted will be the best but they generally are superior.

So prospective Owners will scout a an open League and if they feel the talent pool is pretty watered down, they will look for better choices.

This is especially true in Keeper Leagues , but I agree with you, I have sat waiting for a league to fill for 2 + months and as long as you are part of that League, even if it's not running yet, it counts as one of your Leagues.

Re: Waiting for new owners to fill leag

This is a catch-22 though because when it’s YOUR league that gets deleted, you’re forced to find a new league anyway. I have been thinning out leagues, but people have a choice - stay where you are or join a new one.

Re: Re: Waiting for new owners to fill

Which is why I don't play keepers. Those already there are usually the better teams who get to keep the best players. I like to start off on even footing in auto leagues.
