View Full Version : Giving Up My Team

I very much apologize but I'm force to give up my team this year. My new work obligations prevent me from being a competitive manager. Therefore, I'd rather pass the team on to someone who will be active. I hate the teams that sit on the bottom with no manager interaction. To the league, I apologize. To the person who wants the team, just write back here (if this is all OK by the league) and i'll change the sportsline info to yours.

Once again I aplogize and hope to have some more "free time" in the future.

It's because Eric has BO, isn't it.

I'd love to continue, but like the past 3 days and 26 of the next 40, i will be "on the road". Vegas, Seattle, Phoenix, Orlando. It's just too hard to pay attention to baseball and be an active member, and I hate to let the team just "die". My 16 game season ticket package companion isn't too happy about it either. :) If the league would rather me keep it up i'd be happy to do so, but I'm just afraid i'd sacrifice some of the competition.

Well, I like to see the Notorious one stay, but if he truly can't, then I know John (JDPNYY) regreted not getting in this year and wanted to be on the top of the list for next year...

I'll check and update as I can. The problem I see is I could have someone on the DL and it might take me 3 days to realize it. I really have no problem keeping the team, and wouldn't mind doing so (for future years), however, I joined the league to be competitive and to try to win. With the current situation, my focus would be turned to trying not to lose. I just don't want others to get the "bad manager" feelings toward me if i don't hold my own and pay enough attention to the league. I've been in leagues with people that do that and it drives me nuts.

A joint venture possibly?

Interesting...a joint venture would certainly work...

John could get a taste for next year when he gets his own team, and MHHL would retain the team that he bought at auction now, and in the future...

That could work for sure. And if John wins, he can take the prize.

FormerlyKnownAsMHHL has contacted me to turn the team over to me.

As I said, I would be happy to take over the team or I would be just as happy to fill in for him if he needs to be away.

Let me know what you all decide.

Thanks,

John

I think that John would be a terrific addition to the league. (If MHHL must leave, which seems to be the case.) (Well, either way, but there would be no place for him without MHHL leaving.)

I am 100% fine with you guys being joint owners. I see no problem with it as we already have one set.

I get the feeling that MHHL would like to keep his team, but doesn't want to be an inconvenience to us. I think it would be great to have John in the league and also prep him for next year when he's on his own.

John is now my Cashman. He is responsible to make all our moves and dealings. I will just sit back and scream at him if he doesn't win.

Oops, nevermind. I see where you can sign out and then sign back in with a different user name/password.

Yeah but this team is registered to a different ID, so he's probably going to have to sign in and out each time. I've also renamed us to "Notorious B.I.G. Units"
