Actually some leagues base their draft order by the standings at game 120, and start the draft while the previous season is still going.

Adding a new Wall of shame candidate to the mend: auxesis from the WIBL league for no other reason then he traded away his draft picks and then bowed out of the league. His reason: He wanted to drop one of his teams and decided on the one which he had run into the ground after making many questionable trades as the owner for 3 seasons.  

Automatic nominations should be handed out to anyone who trades their teams' picks away and then drops the team.

Yup, that's a no-brainer.

Jeff is in one of the progressives I commish and he is a solid owner.  I also play in several other progs in which he is an owner.  No problems with him in any of them and would accept him in any progressive I ever decide to start.

Maybe he's changed his ways, then. To be clear, this isn't a personal vendetta -- everyone I know from my progressive leagues has had a terrible experience with him. But yeah, who knows, he could have changed.

I agree 100% with Scott, Jeff is one owner who does not belong here. He has been in both progs I run and he is still in one. He does treat others as he is treated so if you treat him with respect he will do the same in kind so if you get the cold shoulder look at how you have treated him.

He left one league I recruited him for as it was a 4 season progressive and two of the seasons were heading into deadball and modern times. He could deal with one but not with both and gave me fair notice and I replaced him before the season was over. I have recruited him for progressives I am in and the commissioners have been thrilled.

If I had 23 jeff4noles in my league I would be content as he enters promptly with never a reminder, enter leagues immediately after the league number is sent out and makes his picks on time and keeps his team fully stocked with talent so if, god forbid, life threw him a curve and gave him a reason to not make it back the commissioner would never have a problem replacing him.

Anyone who thinks Jeff needs to be mentioned here is way off base!

Well, I don't intend to make a federal case about it -- with everyone I've talked to before, my take on jeff has been universal. But if others have had different experiences, maybe he's not always so bad.

though leaving leagues is just as much the problem as joining is the solution.  

I don't mind that jeff joins or leaves leagues - but its that when he leaves leagues, it's USUALLY because his team is complete crap.  And so then the next owner has to spend the next 3-5 years trying to make it competitive.  

but would agree that he doesn't really belong in this thread.  if the thread were called, "progressive owners that seem to hate the league rules and every owner in it, but still signs up for it ..." then that'd be a different story :)
