    Exclamation Little League Ending after 2043 Season

    We have 10 openings. This, coupled with so many other leagues having multiple openings and a shrinking player base, led danielpaton and I to the decision to stop the league at the conclusion of this season. I'll let it run through all of the awards and will stop the sims on November 1.

    I've been in this league since the 2016 season and have enjoyed every second of it. Thanks to the great group of owners throughout the years that made it fun.

    Re: Little League Ending after 2043 Season

    It is with a heavy heart we do this. Thanks for the memories everyone. Jwood created the league and I ran it for a long time. The writing has been on the wall and despite the great efforts by CelticWarrior which probably got us another 10 seasons at least, the ship appears to be sinking.
    Some people might get some pleasure out of hate
    Me, I've enough already on my plate
    People might need some tension to relax
    Me? I'm too busy dodging between the flak
    What you see is what you get
    You've made your bed, you better lie in it
    You choose your leaders and place your trust
    As their lies wash you down and their promises rust
    You'll see kidney machines replaced by rockets and guns
    And the public wants what the public gets
    But I don't get what this society wants

    Man, just as my dynasty was warming up.

    Simple Rules:

    1. Stop recruiting new owners for your half dead crappy leagues. Your efforts would be better used looking for a stable league with owners who actually care about their teams. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or a superstud player, then dont take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."

    fwiw, if anyone is interested in a league with the same PSFA waiver style draft, a wheel draft for draft picks, 8/day speed, and a few familiar faces, I have one opening in A League to Rule Them All

    Will be sad to see the league go, but also want to give a special thanks to CelticWarrior for keeping it going as long as he did. We all really appreciate it.

    Also hope i can go out on top. This run has been one of the best i have ever had as a manager, making it to 7 WS in 9 years and winning 4 thus far. Come on #5!

    Christo going for 4-4-4!

    Heck of a run by Margaritaville, and it would have been interesting to see where the White Sox could have taken their run...

    Good series danielpaton. 2 WS in a row get pushed to game 7, but this time we managed to come out on top.

    Wish the rest of the league best of luck and will see you around.
