Commissioner Corner Message Board
I Commish a biding fantasy hockey league on Pro Boards and Yahoo and I'm in need of at least one but possibly two owners willing to take over a couple of current teams. Roger and I have been running this league for four years now and we really haven't had much turn over in that time, everything has been pretty stable but now for the off-season,we're in need of knowledgeable hockey person(s) willing to be active in a very interesting, in depth and fun fantasy hockey biding league.
During the hockey season, the league needs each owner to visit the site a minimum of one hour a day, minus weekends. In the leagues off-season and depending on the schedule, that hourly number could increase and will include some weekend time to preform such task as updating your teams roster page, recalling and sending players to the minors, wheeling and dealing, naming your teams RFA's, biding on free agents, drafting and activating prospects or participating in the draft lottery, there is always something to do in the THL. I know the expected participation seems like a lot but this league is like nothing you've never seen before, you will want to spend even more time discussing trades, scouting players or biding on players to develop your team, this league is NOT just about having your Yahoo line up set.
Anyone interested in joining the league, must have instant chat for Y!M and it is greatly preferred that you already be familiar with the site called Pro Boards. If you meet this criteria, please email me directly so you may answer some generic questions and so we can go over the league rules which are too long to include in this post. If your still interested, i would then have you join the leagues group page, nothing ever happens there since its only a back up to the real league but there you can read up on the rules at anytime and review the leagues manager list.
All the cats in the league are pretty hockey savvy so you'll need to be on your toes but Roger and i will be there to help you with any questions you might have in the beginning of your THL career. After you've decided to join, whoever signs up first will be shown both teams and may decide which team they will be taking over. Each team does have some pretty good players but both teams over all depth is lacking and one is pretty tight against the salary cap although that's why i invented our leagues buy out rule. All the team names have to be real NHL teams so you can change your teams name from whatever is available. If you have any questions and are interested in joining, please email me at email@example.com
