If it were decided to kick them out, though - could we just all agree not to place any waiver cliams on their players for two days to make them all free agents? It would have to be on the honor system, but we can handle that.

I'm a commish in another yahoo league and you can't delete teams once you have the draft. Unfortunately punks decide their team isn't good enough so they just quit and take all their good players down with them while the rest of us suffer.
Next year - Live Draft and a max of 12 teams!!!!!!

I agree, to all of that. We started planning it way too late this year.

Let's get past that and just have fun.

Yeah, we can't kick them out. I do believe however that I can start editing rosters though. I'll see if I can at least start players for those teams who aren't on bye weeks.

Who are the concerned teams? Only 2?

Honestly, it doesn't detract from the fun I'm having any, other than I don't know those guys at all so I haven't bothered proposing trades or anything to them. But at the same time, I wouldn't feel right kicking someone out even if we could.

Besides, I'm actually feeling pretty good about my running backs right now; Willie Mo Parker, Fred Taylor's Groin, Laurence Maroney, and Kevin Jones isn't bad as my fourth guy. I'd rather have a stud like Rudi Johnson, but not this weekend

See, I don't think that's right, either. They aren't participating, that's their loss unless they've communicated to you or us that something else is overwhelming their lives right now. We may, however, want to revisit the last-place-gets-a-homebrew prize, however, if the last place finisher ends up one of the neglected teams.

It'll be moot, anyway, Walker's got last place in the bag methinks. That's the only time he'll get to drink my homebrew (go PATS!)

I agree. Don't start players for them unless they have asked you to.

If they don't come back for this weekend and you can edit their rosters and release players, I say do it.

Well, we know Drunken Sailors is at least following his team now, because he posted (back on page 52, I think):

"Argh, 202 points and where am I in the standings?"

So let's not touch his pot o' gold yet.

Also- D'Bricks, if I can help you in any way to beat Bruschi this week, lemme know. I've "taken an interest" in your matchup.
