Re: Appreciate The Enthusiasm,but.....

Most of the new leagues being created are private leagues. There will inevitably be some people who join and create custom leagues. This is a unique time, people are looking for things to do. As a vet of this website you know what leagues to join or not join.

While I think we should be enjoying the fact we have so many new users, it’s a fair point that brand new commissioners with no site experience should probably be running private leagues and not public custom leagues until they’ve become fairly familiar with the commissioner options.

Let 'em run wild.

Bill Gates was told to not jump in, Alexander Graham Bell was told to wait.

If you're new to the site, congratulations on finding a hidden gem. Start a league whenever the eff you want to, and figure it out as you go.

It takes an experienced player a very short time to realize if a league will be worth the time invested, so there's no point for experienced people to discourage new Commish's from trying to work out how to run a league.

Re: Appreciate The Enthusiasm,but..

Seems like quite a few of the new commissioners were running fantasy leagues and wanted something to replace that. They already have their set group of players and just want a private league to run. In that case, go for it, and many of us are happy to help.

I think Belushi nailed the attitude:



What? Over? Did you say 'over'? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!...

It ain't over now, 'cause when the goin' gets tough, the tough get goin'. Who's with me? Let's go! Come on!...

What the f--k happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're gonna let it be the worst. 'Ooh, we're afraid to go with you, Bluto, we might get in trouble.' (shouting) Well, just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead!
