Explain again

New League
Already fired a Head Coach before a single snap
A team already gaining prime draft choices in the 1st and second future rounds for trash thru trades before preseason is done
Three nobody coaches quit before draft is done

Please again explain to me how this is supposed to be a “fresh” league idea instead of the same old, same old.

You got to draft your team the way you want. Its fresh and new. Have faith in the process.

As I'm typing this, this will sound more sarcastic than is intended but...

Pardon me for pointing this out:

MFN is an online simulation game with (mostly) human participants who are husbands/wives, fathers/mothers, employers/employees, students, active duty military...all walks of life who deal with the physical, emotional, financial roller coaster we call everyday life (RL, if you will).
Priorities change, $h1t happens, chaos ensues...

Yes, I agree, things happen that I don't like either (i.e. suck) but we unfortunately have absolutely no influence or control over other peoples actions or choices.
If you have a proposed solution, please share it with all of us.

Perfection is an unattainable dream. Let's work together to make this the best league we can. Good people have put a lot time and effort into creating a solid foundation for us.
I, for one, am very thankful for it. Please stay as positive as humanly possible.
Thanks!

First, the trade that took place was not run through the trade committee. Both coaches have been warned that this trade may be reversed, if that is what the committee decides. More on that later.

Second, our league is made up of real people some imperfect. We had one coach who chose not to participate and one coach who chose not to communicate. I cannot control the actions of others. But, if they are going to be a detriment to the league, I can remove them.

I understand Real Life. And I don't think you're being sarcastic at all. I just have this dream of Shangri La and get a little disappointed when things go Detroit. Besides, sometimes I enjoy being the Devil's Advocate

I like the idea of the coaches having an input in the league's 'atmosphere' and administration. The blog is a great idea and the POW awards should be bit of fun.. I haven't played MFN for very long but I have played other online games and when there is a bit of banter that all helps the experience. People will drop out but that's life but if there is a core that stays then that should keep it all running at a level that people enjoy.
