Just kidding!

The Cybertron Screamers are no longer an active member of this league. They will not be part of this league in 2016.

More information coming soon!

Sad to see anyone leave. But too many people are waiting to get into a league as awesome as this. Congrats to whoever is next to join us. Good luck Allen.

Allen, you are no longer an active member of this league. Your post count has been extremely low, which in some months has been a violation of the bylaws B.1.A and B.1.F. Also you started a couple of players that were deamed OUT this week.

Either way bylaws specifically say on B.4 Reasons for expulsion are failure to pay for club fees or penalties, team abandonment, cheating of any sort, collusion between franchises, failure to fulfill the expectations of owners or anything deemed detrimental to the club by the President.

I do not speak for Andy or anyone besides myself but I am very surprised that you are surprised that Prez would respond in this manner. Either way Allen wish you well man sorry it did not pan out :(

Cybertron activity:

July: 15 new posts
Aug: 31 new posts
Sept: 29 new posts
Oct: 10 new posts

All those months you were in the last three if not last in activity...

I am in communication with Allen via email and I am not posting here to pile on him necessarily but he doesn't agree with my decision and I don't care. Let me post it here so that others may learn something....

Allen is a ghost here.
Stylianos commented fairly about his posting activity above so there is that.

When he was fined the first time, there was an argument because he was "busy" which I find insulting because we are all fucking busy and because we clearly have a policy wherein if you know something is going to be in the way you can give me a heads-up in advance so that we aren't left hanging here.

He went on to get penalized twice more.

Doesn't participate in the pick'em game.

Had a position...an article to write...asked once if someone would take it over and when nobody did, instead of talking about it with me or working harder to find a solution, he just stopped doing it.

I have had multiple complaints about his lack of activity, comments about not even knowing who the guy is behind the robot team.

Allowing an owner like this to stay in this league is not only insulting to those of us who work hard to make RW what it is, but it's detrimental to he league as a whole because to be quite frank it's owner like this that make me want to stop playing FF altogether at times.

Allen is a good dude I am sure and there are millions of leagues out there that will love to have him I am sure. This club has higher expectations is all.

I am still working out the details of how the Screamers franchise will be managed for the remainder of the 2015 season and Allen has options in that regard.

I don't think anyone is going to argue with the decision. Seems like a no brainer to me.

Sucks to lose a person in a league, but when the rules aren't followed, I guess a change is in need.  

On that note, good thing I checked my lineup at 10:30 and saw that Grimes was out sweat

Yep never good losing a member, but RW is only what it is because of the activity and guarantees rosters are managed properly.

Good Luck Allen.

Hate to see this and as a league commish it is always difficult to be in this position.

Good luck to Allen and the league moving forward

Yeah, as a commish myself for a couple leagues this is tough. This league sets crazy high standards in activity, which is why I love it and can't wait for some day. But playing guys who are active that week is a must for the integrity of the league. (Did I sound like Goodell?)

Best of luck Allen!

I think if Allen would have done ANYTHING...anything at all, this would not be happening. Hit post count targets, contribute an article, ace your lineups...something. Despite the high standards, Andy has been very forgiving while still enforcing the fines. It sounds like he won't be so forgiving going forward, but give him a sign that you truly give a damn.

Yeah, sad to see Allen go but you've either got to contribute or keep Andy / the league aware of why you can't contribute if it's for a period of time.

We're all busy. The whole point is that this place is worth putting time aside for. If you can't do that, tell Andy when life gets in the way.

It sucks to see an owner go -- even as someone, who being several spots down on the waitlist, won't get to the show unless a few of you leave.  But this is a different type of league.  From what I've seen, everyone here likely does and likely can do well in other leagues and be one of the more active owners.  But this league has set a very high bar for owner participation and involvement.  It appears that, for those that accept the challenge, the rewards are high -- you get an experience like no other league.

Since this summer we have had an active and growing waitlist of owners who appear more than qualified to take over a franchise... apparently that still wasn't enough motivation to even do the absolute bare minimum... Too bad it had to go this route but its exciting to think that the DD will be getting an upgrade!

On a positive note now all 12 teams can trade in DD. That was one tough dude to trade with, difficult to get a response. All trade offers just got forwarded to Cybertron Pergatory

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING pisses me off more than sending a trade and getting nothing. If you hate it, send a rejection of tell me why! If it's not that bad, counter!!!!

Am i right in that the Psychos are #1 on the wait list and does he take it over or does Allen ride out the rest of the year with some type of "oversight" of his team from the league?

Above, Andy said he is still working out the details and that Allen "has options".  Wait and see mode currently.

I'm only kidding. But I do move the trade window for those I know don't respond within a few days. But trading is scarce in TT.

Sorry to see anyone go, but I understand the commitment to the league. I too hate trade offers that just stay out there. I do like emailing the person letting them know you are thinking about it.

As a side note, I am sitting here with my 4 year old daughter and she loves the Minions picture about this post.

Same, son and daughter both always want me to stop scrolling when they see the minion team

On Sundays, my kid also says: "I want to cheer for the team that is going to win."

Kids are such fucking front-runners.
