PostSubject: Goddamnit   Sat Jan 30, 2016 11:59 pm

Well folks, I'm going to have to bow out of Roster Wars. The writing was on the wall for me for the past few months, but I think I was in denial about the amount of time I can commit to spending on these forums. I'm not sure if I hit 30 posts in January or not, but I know that over last two weeks I was hardly on here. My work schedule is just too much for me to overcome right now; years past up until this last July, I was able to log into the site during the day while working and stay caught up and post much more frequently. Well, in July my work-life exploded and I simply don't have time do do that anymore. This is the first time since working on my uncle's farm as a teenager that I can honestly say that I go in to work every day and bust my ass from the time get to my office until I leave for the day. I don't know what that says about my work history and ethic, but it's the truth...

I want to let ya'll know that everything I've ever said about my love and appreciation for this league has been wholly and completely truthful, and that I did not make this decision lightly. Full disclosure, I'm not happy about having to do this, but it's finally crystal clear to me that my posting frequency and "face time" here is not going to change much in the coming months- work isn't showing signs of slowing down, and even if I find a new job, I've got another baby on the way this April. And my two pre-existing heathens. And my ebay store. Something has to give, and unfortunately, forum visits are just not as high on the priority list for me as they had been in the past (although, no lie: I think about ya'll every day and do stop in every day to at least skim if I find a minute, all the while worrying about my lack of posting numbers. I don't want to be stressed out by that anymore.)

I enjoy the fuck out of you all, even you Andy, you dick. I don't agree with you on some stuff, but I fully feel your passion and have much respect for your commitment to and leadership of this league. You have been getting better at your job every year, and you have never waiverd from your determination to build a community around RW. My primary focus has always been to build a fantasy football dynasty first, with all else being secondary. This league demands more than that, and as much as it sucks to admit, I'm just no longer able to cut it.

I need to wrap this rambling up (I've always said that if we were graded on words per post rather than number of posts, I'd be golden, and I stand by that!) Best of luck to my replacement and the rest of you. I'll be around.

Adios

Tony

One for the road:

Thanks folks. My apologies for waiting until now rather than last month. I did fully plan to here more, but this month really made me realize that I was kidding myself. I regret that I didn't have the same foresight that James had.

I will say that I am happy the the coolest logo in Roster Wars will be replaced by the coolest logo in Roster Wars...

Good luck Bergen, she's not in shambles but there's work to be done.

I'll be around from time to time, jump in and post some random or fucked up gif for a few chuckles.

Actually, not so unlike my contributions to the league in recent months...

Y'all rock though, it's no accident that every browser I use has RW as the top of the most visited places.

Like the others, I'm sorry to see you go but respect and appreciate that you are doing it on your terms and obviously you are putting the league first which says a lot. Hey, maybe things change down the road and you can return...

Any interest in playing in the RWTC since that comes with no requirements beyond managing the team? I am actually gonna play in RWTC this year so we could still compete through that if you're interested.

I hope you drop by when you have free time man...you're always welcome obviously.

Thanks for everything man. I'm gonna shoot you an email and we'll get you settled up.

I'd hate to see you go even though it's a route to get me more involved here. Although your post count may be lower than most, the ones that I remember have been entertaining and insightful. As for your team, if I'm chosen to take over, it has some solid pieces in place and should be in good shape. I'm still a little surprised at the record last year but you built a solid team.

But, if this is the fit for me in the league, it's satisfying to be able to take over for someone that realized that it's time to move on and there is a amicable separation. Those of us on the wait list are in a weird situation because we want a team but don't want to have an owner forced out to create that opening.

And I agree, the Lil' Mac logo is really growing on me. I can't wait to see what Andy has in store for the full banner if/when the time comes to move up to the big leagues.

Well said Russ. In regards to record, it looks like he was 8th in scoring, but worst in points against. Sometimes fantasy is a tough bitch and it's all a matter of timing.

I also can't wait to see when Andy works his magic on your banners.

Another OG.

Sorry to see you go man, but I empathize. I'm 8 months in to a new job and I'm still trying to re-find my balance as I have less dick around time at work.

Anyway don't be a stranger.

This is hitting close to home right about now. I'm sure people have noticed I'm not around as much as I was. Same situation.

GOOD LUCK TONY! Don't be a stranger. I totally feel for you. You feel guilty for not being around because you want to be here and know you're wanted here but at the same time your other commitments can overwhelm you.
