    Default We have three new owners!!

    Diamond Dave, Frostwolf and Bellisimo have agreed to join the league. We're just looking to fill one more slot.
    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    It's looking like it will be double fun for you guys. I think we're going to break up all the current teams without owners and have an expansion draft, before the regular draft, so you can truly have a team to call your own.

    sounds good, though i'd assume most of us were planning to blow up the whole team anyway.

    We are still working out the details of how to keep Lebron out of the clutches from one of the expansion teams. Working REALLY, REALLY hard at that .

    Is there a way for me to go and look at the rosters of the current teams to be folded? Like league number and which teams are to be folded?

    I sent you a message. I'm going to send out a group email to the new owners in about a week or so, but here's a preview of the teams that will be dissolved and whose players will be part of the new team owners draft:


    F LeBron James (CLE)
    CF Carlos Boozer (UTA)
    GF Josh Smith (ATL)
    GF Joe Johnson (ATL)
    CF Mehmet Okur (UTA)
    F Udonis Haslem (MIA)
    G Beno Udrih (SAC)
    G Wayne Ellington (MIN)
    G Keyon Dooling (NJN)
    CF Antonio McDyess (SAS)
    CF Solomon Jones (IND)
    GF Kelenna Azubuike (GSW
    C Kendrick Perkins (BOS)
    C Brendan Haywood (DAL)
    G O.J. Mayo (MEM)
    G Jarrett Jack (TOR)
    G Toney Douglas (NYK)
    F Danilo Gallinari (NYK)
    F Jeff Green (OKL)
    F Hakim Warrick (CHI)
    F Brandon Bass (ORL)
    F Thaddeus Young (PHI)
    GF Anthony Parker (CLE)
    F Brandan Wright (GSW)


    Some REALLY good players are available, wouldn't you say? We're going to end up having a dispersal draft about a week before we have our real draft. You guys will draft 9 players to get you to the same amount of players as the rest of the league, pre-regular draft, then we'll have our regular draft, which will include the 2010 rookies and then the players already on the waiver wire pool.

    And you couldn't exactly resist crying about it. Again.

    Don't worry, whomever gets him next will really "earn him" by...... getting him in the expansion draft. Wow. I'm in awe of the difficulty involved. Really a hero's quest, right there. You should whine to that guy next season.

    WHOA.

    Obviously, my intended "trash talk/Ribbing" tone was lost in that.

    Yes, I very much opposed the "team swap". But I only ever voiced my opinion on the matter when it went down. If I've ever mentioned it again, I'd like to see a link. Cry about it? Hardly.

    I didn't think it was a good move or a good precedent for the league. It felt like a whopper of a lop-sided trade to me. and YES, all members of the league do have the right to voice a concern and even vote to overturn a trade. That's in the rules.

    And when the poll went up to ask if it was OK, half of the owners agreed with me.

    Nah - very minor "controversy" from two seasons ago. It's a keeper league so you'll have plenty of stories after a couple of years. ("I can't believe I dropped that guy!", etc.).

    The league is lots of fun so long as you participate. And it will be really fun for the new owners because everyone gets to hand select their players. Looking forward to next season! (Sadly, I've already been knocked out this season by Vegas.)
