    Without relegation, this pretty much seems just like BORED. Now, if we really made it the best of the best, and expanded it to other Blue Jay communities, that would be super cool.

    If he's sad he couldn't join BORED I'd be willing to bring him on board as a special adviser.

    The 4 team relegation makes it interesting. But would the 4 teams coming in have their own little mini draft from the teams departing? Or would they just get the first some many picks of the start of the year draft?

    It's supposed to be a gauntlet of the board dynasty leagues' best talent. Relegation has to be there or else it's just an auction keeper. Promotion from the dynasty leagues would also be a pretty cool prize for winning them.

    There would be so few keepers that any team could easily go from worst to first after taking over a bad team. 80% of the roster would come from the yearly auction. It can even be as few as 4 or 2 keepers if that works better.

    Wasn't BORED suppose to be the "elite" board league. You know, the league where David Jacob was a top MILB pick.

    as long as there's a clear way of selecting people to take over, that's fine. not sure how you do that, though.

    Relegated teams would be replaced by the most successful team from their respective representative dynasty league in the previous season not already in the Big League.

    What if that person is in multiple leagues?

    Owners can only represent one dynasty league at a time in the Big League. If someone is already in the Big League, the nomination would move to the next most successful guy in the prior season.

    In the initial phase of putting the best-of-the-best in the league, if someone is nominated by multiple leagues they have to choose to represent only one of them.

    Put me down as interested. I wouldn't be heartbroken if I don't make the cut, though.

    The way the initial league would be set up is - each dynasty (DDL, LoD, BBDL, BORED) would nominate their best and strongest owners, and I would ask those owners to participate. If any of them decline, the spot gets offered to the next-best as nominated by that league. 4 owners get in per league.

    In theory, at least, it's a great idea. I would like to see this thing happen.

    Currently don't have a redraft league which I do miss a bit, seems like this could be a happy medium, I'd have an interest, but if you have 16 other owners that are more passionate than me, I'm happy to defer.
