Gentlemen

I regret to advise that I will be standing down at the end of this season and that in all probability, unless someone else wants to run things, that the league will close. As the committee members will know, I have been thinking about this for a long time and we are now at a point where the vacancies in the league are so many that it's really not worthwhile to continue.

Unfortunately, facts have to be faced: the league has been in decline for several years now. Yes, we have attracted new owners from time to time, but generally they have been unreliable and not stayed around for long. That has been very frustrating and only they can tell you why they have not stayed the course. A frequent complaint has been "too many cpu games" but leaving is just exacerbating the problem. If everyone had stuck around for the past two seasons alone, the league would be full, but it's not and despite advertising on various forums, we haven't really attracted any fresh blood.

I'd like to thank everyone on the committee who have helped me out over the years and also those long-standing members who have stuck with the league through thick and thin. It's a sad day for me to make this announcement, because the league went through some terrific times for quite a long time, with a full membership and people on the waiting list - but those days seem like a distant memory now.

All the best,
Dawg

3 responses in total and 2 of them from you. It's over I'm afraid. Nothing lasts forever.

@GBDawg1

I’ve told Matty and he said he messaged you with how I’d be happy to help run the league and get it filled by the end of January I’d say. Please message me if you want to keep the league going or if I’m wasting my time trying to help.

I hoped that Dawg's ultimatum would actually galvanise people into stepping up, playing their games and trying to get this league back on track. It seems to have had the opposite effect, with even human vs human games being simmed.

I thought people were complaining there were too many cpu games, yet it doesn't seem to matter whether there is an opponent or not.

What's the matter with you all?
