    The Big League - Gauging interest in a new keeper

    EDIT

    RULES LOG

    52.6% want 4 keeper players - DECIDED
    66.7% want a limit on how long a player can be kept for - DECIDED. This will be accomplished with monetary inflation, see below.
    50/50 split on NA slot - Not decided but I will say NO NA SLOT to make free agency a bit deeper.
    50/50 split on 2 or 3 transactions per week. Max 3 transactions per week DECIDED, I changed my mind on this.
    60% say next day transactions - DECIDED
    70% want a dispersal draft for promoted team keepers - DECIDED, the four promoted teams will self-administer a dispersal draft in the spring with 16 picks, random order.
    60% want head2head categories - DECIDED
    65% want 6 teams in playoffs; voting supports 4 divisions; top two records get a bye - DECIDED
    60% want worst 4 teams overall to be demoted - DECIDED, promotions will come from the leagues of demoted teams so there will always be 4 teams per league (60% wanted this too).
    90% want promotions based on regular season records - DECIDED

    PROMOTION HIERARCHY

    Go down this list until you hit a team that isn't already in the All-Star League, wants to play, and didn't just get relegated (relegated teams have to sit out 1 year and can't get promoted from some other league.)

    1. Regular season #1
    2. Playoff #1
    3. Regular season #2
    4. Playoff #2
    ... and so on.

    Rationale - regular season success gets precedence but teams can still qualify via playoff success, circumstances permitting.

    KEEPER COSTS, AUCTION BUDGETS, FAAB, AND INFLATION


    - Every team has a base auction budget of $500.
    - You can keep a maximum of 4 players.
    - There is no minimum number of keepers (you're allowed to keep zero.)
    - Keeping a player costs whatever they went for in auction last year + $10. Or, whatever you paid in FAAB off waivers + $10. Players added from free agency for $0 cost $10 to keep. The sum gets subtracted from your auction budget.
    - If you add or trade for a player and want to keep them, they still cost what they went for at auction + $10, even if you picked them up for $0 (This is for the sake of simplicity, but you can think of it like the player having a 'bad contract' attached to them.)
    - FAAB will NOT be tied to auction leftovers. Teams should plan to spend all of their auction $ at auction. FAAB budgets will get set to $100 after the auction.

    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.
