That way if someone pulls out and someone was to take over the team the very next year. They could keep some of the players or start fresh on the talent pool. If we did that i'd say hold the draft right after week 4 of preseason to prevent any team wrecking injuries. Bada- u like the idea <u seem like the wise head around these traps>
Keeper leagues are great. Even better are Dynasty Leagues but those are hard core and not the format for here.
I certainly am up for a keeper league if that is what you guys want to do. I only speak from experience from keeper leagues in these type of informal settings that while in theory it sounds great, it does get difficult when you have turnover.
TYPICALLY the people that were absolute crap, dont return. So try finding a replacement for that team when he has nobody keeper worthy and with all the other teams keeping 2 players, you are faced with building your team with Breese, Manning, Brady, Rodgers, Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson, MJD, Andre Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, etc all protected.
Does not matter that everyone loses a draft pick, you are picking from rookies and 2nd tier players. Really hard to compete. Not impossible but recruiting someone new to take over a situation like that is very difficult.
A keeper league by structure creates turnover unless you have a dedicated group of people. If you have a crap season, most end up quitting because hard to rebuild and compete... if it is not a keeper league, people are more tempted to come back because everyone starts off fresh on equal footing.
Again, I am up for whatever. Just dont expect it to be as easy to find someone to take over a crap team that was abandoned.
