Hi all, I hope you're still checking out this PD thread. I've had discussions with Jake (Dr. Badd) about the future of the keeper leagues and neither of us were optimistic about the IKL or even the ABA Keeper League making it this year. With his permission, I've created the ABA Keeper League at sports.ws and I'd be very happy if we could continue playing with our teams that many of us have built with the future in mind. The password is peanutbutter. I'm not sure what is going on with the IKL, and rosters haven't even been posted yet, but If that's running again I'd love to participate.
With that said, if either league fails to start then I'll create a new keeper league with the same setup (9 keepers, no salary cap, 12 roster spots, same scoring system, etc.). I'm excited about James' new salary cap league (and we're currently looking for two more owners), but I thought that offering a keeper league that wasn't as intensive or demanding could be a good way to keep us playing together. It could also hopefully bring back some owners that were apathetic that their teams weren't in a position to contend.
What do you guys think? Would you participate in a new league, or do you think the existing leagues will make it?
