Merger Request

Does anyone oppose a merge with another league to help remove our 9 Bots?

I have sent a request into admin for a merger. It was prevented in past by one owner who voted against it but that owner is no longer in our league.

If a merger is approved is has to happen tomorrow after the draft and before league play starts. Time is of the essence.

Please respond if you are accepting of a merger or oppose.

Thanks,

Ted - Chicago Fire

I'm all about a merger.

I do worry that we're not going to be any other league's first choice since we're bringing 5 extra empty spaces to the table.

I submitted an urgent ticket request regarding a merger several days ago but have had no response.

The problem is there is no one with enough holes to merge with. You have 6 active owners right now. Here are my options:

- If we merge 3 leagues, we might be able to put together a 24 team league
- The Carl Yaztremski League has 6 bots. We could propose a merge to them, or I could move you all to that league, but it would be just the owners, not the teams. To compensate, I would set you each up there with 4 seasons of credit. I could move you now and let this league continue to run til the end of the season.

I'm looking at the league list to see what our best options are.

I could try to see if I can rewrite the merge code to insert a team in another league; that would give us the best possible option. I know we've tried in the past and it didn't go well, but we are still early in the season, I have time to work it out before the next one starts.

This is what I am going to try. Working on it now; I am going to try to move teams between two defunct leagues.

I have a prototype of the migration done, I'll test it in the morning.
