    The Big League - Gauging interest in a new keeper

    Just putting this out there to see if there is interest, if people think it would be fun.

    This would be a lower maintenance keeper league where the best of the best from the BBDL, BORED, DDL, and LoD compete against each other.
    It would not be a Dynasty league. Rather, it would be a keeper league fully on Yahoo with a small but not insignificant number of keepers (probably 6 or 8).

    There wouldn't be any offseason activity. When Yahoo opens, members would select their keepers from last year's roster before a snake draft or auction to fill out rosters.
    There would be a weekly transaction limit of 2 adds to promote a lower level of necessary team maintenance.

    Not sure if it would be categories or points. Or, maybe even roto.

    Participants would be nominated from the respective board leagues either through league votes or some agreed upon points system considering past standings / accomplishments.

    It would probably be a 16 team league with 4 representatives from each board league. If someone is nominated from two leagues, they would elect to represent only of of those league and the next best from the other would fill the spot.

    There would be yearly relegation. Every year, some number of teams get booted and replaced by deserving teams. I'm thinking four teams get dumped. Spots probably go to BBDL/BORED/DDL/LoD medalists not already in the league. Exact system would be determined. Unsure if maintaining 4 from each league is necessary year to year. Most people are already in 2 or 3 of these leagues so it's a bit muddy how relegation/promotion would shake out.

    Eh?

    If enough people think it's a good idea we will put it to the individual leagues to nominate people. Of course, if someone nominated doesn't want in then the spot goes to the next best in that league.

    I have wanted to get into a second league since I'm only in LoD at the moment and want to play more. Am I correct in assuming "keeper" in this case simply means that I get to transfer my core from year-to-year but need to rebuild all the complementary players? I guess the question itself disqualifies me from getting in here, but I'm throwing my hat in anyway.

    Gotta say, a keeper league that relegates has been something I've loved the idea of for a while.

    This is also a perfect scenario to implement an auction draft imo, which are fucking awesome.

    Although I agree this does lend itself very well to auction

    I thought this was finally going to be the year where a new league did not pop up.

    And ehhh, I'm a loser with no life so I could probably add another league.
