Hello everyone, I'll get the leagues up sometime this week, tomorrow if I can. I am currently out of the country for the next couple months and my access to the internet is a little suspect (no phone and no computer on some weekends). Is there anyone who is willing to help get the leagues set up? Preferably someone who is in both leagues.

Contracted? I'm in a league that went from 20 to 12. It sucks. The level of talent is unrealistic. The best way in a Dynasty league to keep owners is to have rules that allow for turnover. 20 keepers is way too much. There is no reason to make trades or anything.

20 teams I feel is very nice. It keeps teams somewhat real.

12 is too little. 16-18 would be better, especially in the dynasty. only way 20 is going to keep working in the dynasty league is if the # of keepers decreases as you say. 20 is too much with 20 teams. teams at the bottem are goining to saty at the bottem with no hope when their isn't enough talent in the fa pool or enough talent to trade for upgrades. you need some turnover or the bottem teams are jus going to keep quitting.

I agree that 16 or 18 teams is where this needs to go. We essentially played in a 16 team league last year. Four teams never made a move all season. But I understand it'll never go back to 20. Expansion later would be impossible. My guess is at least those four owners will not return and probably one or two additional. That seems to be the norm. I would like to suggest getting to 16 owners and then doing a kind of weighted redistribution of the defunct teams. Something like doing a one or two round draft (off-line of coarse) among the non play-off teams. This would be an immediately tremendous boost to the struggling teams. We all know there are some game changers on those teams we are talking about. Then everyone could shave down to 20 and we could do the regular five round yahoo thing, hopefully with better results. This would mean the non play-off teams would have all got two or three picks before the stronger teams started picking. If that doesn't level the field I don't know what will. Something along those lines could also be done with the defunct minor league rosters as well. The only thing I can think of that may be a little unfair here is that some non play-off teams are just as strong as the ones who got in. But I guess they won't be getting the cream either, in theory.
We all know there's gonna be disagreement about the number of keepers, we went through that last year. I, for one,would rather not do it again. For one thing, Ethan doesn't have the time for that this year. So I think with the sweetened one time ante we should stay at 20 for at least another year. I see no perfect solution here, just trying to help find a way to make this work.
What do you think Ethan? Doc? Phred? Anyone?

Sorry guys my internet has been down for the past couple days. I set up the leagues and I think it should send an e-mail confirmation. A lot of people had hidden e-mails though and I'm not sure if it will get through to them, if you need the league ID and password just message me.
