    Third Vote of the 2007 Season

    We have come to a cross roads in the history of the BZFL. I find my available time dwindling down to nothing. At this time I need the input of the owners to decide the fate of the BZFL. I want to keep this league running and believe it or not it would actually be easier to start the league from scratch rather than try to carry it forward as is. I just don't have the time to update all the contract stuff from last year whereas restarting the league would actually be easier. However, having said that I leave it to you to decide.

    Restart or continue as is? Please vote. I will even include the worst, imo, option...ending the league.




    For all the education and practice each of us undergoes, the achievment of mastery is ultimately the outcome of a personal quest for understanding.

    Are you nuts? Re-start the league, after all the moves we've made? No way.

    If you need to restart, that's ok... I understand... i voted to continue on, but If you need to restart to get organized and make things easier i'm ok with it.

    Continue on... sure there is a learning curve but you adjust.
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    I'm indifferent as well.

    If it would be easier to keep the league going, I'm all for starting over. Now would be better then later and it would be a good chance to set things up to ensure the league's longevity. It would be the perfect time to expand the league, find out how to distribute the workflow involved and streamline all this data to keep everything as simple as possible.

    Re: Third Vote of the 2007 Season

    I think id prefer to carry on as is, simply because a lot of guys put some serious work into building thier team and drafting well. And with the nightmare that is the stocking draft taking likely 2-4 weeks unless we started like next week I dont know how much time id have to do all that over again.

    Re: Third Vote of the 2007 Season

    thanks guys...great feedback...we will continue on as is...one caveat...you need to give me a few weeks to get everything together...I stop teaching for a month in May. My goal will be to get everything together in early May and out to you. Trim the rosters and get moving. I will not put a hard time table on it but we can do it with your patience. Thanks!

    Re: Third Vote of the 2007 Season

    I would almost suggest doing the drafts in the evening, it seems that a lot of people had to submit lists during the day...maybe this should be the next vote.

    Re: Third Vote of the 2007 Season

    I can offer one thought. KISS - this is an all volunteer league. Rather than striving to be NFL exact (it ain't going to happen) adjust the contracting to a more simple system. What you have now is very complex, restrictive and takes a lot of time to sort through. After you get rosters out, you will be spending the next 2 weeks sorting through all of the "adjustments and changes".

    Is there a way to simplify the salary cap system and make it manageable?
