The Cybertron Screamers are done. Allen will be paid at years end like everyone else and any payouts stemming from the Screamers will go to him along with his account balance ($20).

The good news is that a new owner can step right in and start working on their new team.

The bad news is, the first person on the official waitlist has lost their spot. The Winsted Psychos have not visited this forum since Halloween and that is unacceptable. If/when Shawn appears again, him and I will be having a conversation. Presently, he has been moved to the back of the waitlist line.

So....

Please join me in welcoming our newest owner Nick. Nick will be interim coach of the Screamers to close out 2015 and then on January 1st the Titletown Tyrants will become officially a franchise in Roster Wars. Nick has been very enthuastic about joining this club since he discovered us and I for one am very confident that we finally found a great fit for the second franchise. We only had to burn through 3 pretenders to find him.

Welcome Nick!!!

Oh, as for the reason that Allen will be paid whatever comes to the Screamers as opposed to winnings going to the progressive pot like we have done in the past is that Allen did not abandon his team. He was removed for reasons deemed detrimental to the club and was given the choice of running shit or going now and letting me get a new owner in the door.

Allen decided it would be easier to step out now in the hopes of one day proving himself worthy and rejoining us. I wish him luck.

Is he leaving in good standing even if he did not pay his last fine? If this is the wrong place for this let me know.

I don't think the phrase "in good standing" can apply regardless of fines being paid or not given the circumstances. But from what I saw, Andy removed him in lieu of a fine.

I will have Nick setup tomorrow so don't go trade happy at the Screamers just yet folks. Work and family today...

@Dave...he is not leaving in good standing. He was removed. He was never actually fined for this last offense because as I told him I felt it was unfair to fine him when I knew he was not going to be allowed back in 2016. I am not interested in stealing anyones money. His insurance money will not be returned because he did not meet the requirements for that.

Sorry for the confusion. I read the part about him trying to return and was a little baffled by that combined with no paying that fine. Do not mind me, I will go mumble in the corner....

haha.

Allen didn't put up a stink but he apparently felt like he was doing alright...facts didn't side with him but he wants to be here and hopes to one day prove he is worthy. Maybe he just had a bad year but I could name numerous things I would have done differently had I been in his shoes...I think.

Shawn could be doing anything but I would wager he is still in Georgia, still driving that fancy new car and still playing FF somewhere. He's a good dude but I think he ebbs and flows a bit much for this league...but I won't remove him from the list at this time and hopefully him and I get to have a conversation about all that.

It was a good question, no need to apologize!

As for Allen... meh. He was never around enough for it to really matter.

Let me offer some advice as one of the owners who has seen (it feels like) 29 owners go in and out of the DD - resist the urge to trade any big name players for at least a month. They are never good deals.

The green/yellow fish guy traded JJ Watt for Jeremy Hill and like and 4th or something.

Damn that's not good. Hill did look like a stud at the time, but man. Andy, how could you do that? You wouldn't do that to ME would you? laughing

To be fair to the Muskies, he did trade JJ Watt AND Jimmy Graham for Jeremy Hill. It wasn't just Watt. geez you guys.

Who needs those guys, I just leveled the playing field to be fair to you guys, and I did get two 1st rd picks and I knew Graham would get traded and suck shit. I didn't however think Hill would suck shit. I'll be honest seeing that last Chandler Jones deal, I probably could have gotten ten 1st rd picks for Watts. I think that's the worst trade since the Watts deal IMO

For fucks sakes....As hard as I try I always forget something....


When I made the announcement I fully intended to include the following (and this will be addd the bylaws this offseason once I figure out proper verbage)

With the Screamers franchise not returning, they are removed from the race for/from PINK. The other 23 franchises are still competing in this regard.

Along with figuring out bylaw verbage for this shit, I need to come up with a plan for if AFTER earning PINK some pussy quits or whatever. Roster Wars should have a pink owner every year but clearly that aspect needs to be pondered.

Splitting hairs, but in that scenario I think we should roll pinkless. A team could fight their ass off doing everything they can to avoid pink. Say they succeed. Then someone quits and they are stuck regardless. Not cool man, not cool.

This happened the first year. Larry left so James was interim pink for a short while. Never felt right though since he wasn't REALLY last.
