In Topic: Bad news for the 'NFL popularity is in decline' crowd

Yesterday, 11:19 PM

The owners rolling over to the kneelers is the last straw.

 

I just stepped down as Commish of CCDL and informed both that league and my other dynasty league that this will be my last season. It'll also be my last year in 12 Geeks. I'll play out the year because I don't want to sell out my friends/leaguemates. This offseason I learned how hard it is to find replacement owners, and now my own enthusiasm balloon is deflated. 

 

These lsat couple of weeks I've been neglecting my team and the league. Even though I really need a QB2, I didn't bother submitting any waiver claims this week, and I haven't updated the league page in a couple of weeks. Two things that would never happen in years past. I use to find pleasure in following the weekly roller coaster and searching for players, now it's a chore. I don't have the energy. 

 

And the culprit 100% is the kneeling. I mean I'm a Lions fan, I've been through the wringer pretty badly and yet I always came back for more. I've played FF from overseas for 16 years even though it's much harder to do, I've commished for many years. I put up with seven years of Matt Millen running the Lions to include a 0-16 season, before that I stuck with them as Scott Mitchell's incompetence sabotaged the Barry Sanders years. I should be on board for the rest of my life and always thought I would be until a few weeks ago. But I just can't handle these kneelers disrespecting the flag each game. I can't hardly find any enthusiasm and my heart isn't into it anymore.

 

I am right behind you bro,  check your post over there.

Just going to go ahead and put this out there.

This will be my last year as well for this league,  most likely every league.

I will still plug in a staring line up and manage the team the rest of this year,  not leaving you hanging here right now.  I know last week I did not start a defense.  I was not going to drop what I had for a one week fill in,  would rather take the zero there.  No way a defense gets enough to matter usually anyway to risk losing a decent bench player.  :D  

I will not make any moves and just manage with what I have,  will not trade any picks away or do anything nuts.  If someone wants to take it over now,  not a problem.  If not,  I know that is very unlikely,  I will run out the season,  no problem.

I am out after this year.  Thanks Volty and everyone involved in this over the years,  I had a lot of fun.  Stay gold!!!

I'm involved in an underground fight club,  helped them bring it above ground last month or so.  Last fight night which was last Sunday night,  a freaking pro showed up,  I am not kidding.

I am getting ready to buy an AK-47 too.  :D

My team struggles a bit. I should probably let someone else run it.
