    We have some plans on the stove to increase engagement. They aren’t ready to roll out yet, but they hopefully will be in the next few weeks.

    Yeah, I get it, you don't need to explain what you don't want to explain, to your clients.

    I look forward to seeing how this season plays out

    That is just one of the reasons why I ask questions that people don't want asked.

    It is a wise thing to polite; consequently, it is a stupid thing to be rude. To make enemies by unnecessary and willful incivility is just as insane a proceeding as to set your house on fire.

    A wise man showeth himself to be friendly.

    Does not say that he must always be friendly, just says he must show that he is friendly.

    I hope you well.

    Whatís the rush? Your trying to hurry up to draft just to wait. This is supposed to be a slow process. Gives other owners plenty of time to make trades. One season is supposed to take an entire year. Take your time. Do your research on players. Look at their backgrounds. Arrests etcÖ watch game film and make a decision on if the player is worth drafting. Itís supposed to be a long process.

    Good idea, I'll keep that in mind.

    Reality is, it all comes down to being lied to.

    I actually read the panels that were provided and watched the videos while I waited weeks for the draft to begin.

    The draft was said to run a specific way, and yet it was clear from the first round, that the people who made the panels and videos, were controlling the draft to make sure that it did not move the very way they said it would move.

    That caused a seed of negativity to rise up and take root in my opinion and understanding of the entire site.

    So, after being pissed off, I composed myself and offered a solution here that would allow the owners to stop being seen by their clients as liars.

    The very solution could be used to make the draft one round a day or two rounds a day, I suggested three rounds which isn't really importaint.

    What is important is that once again they just pushed innovation and suggestion to the side and returned to self justification.

    All I asked, from the beginning is to not be lied to and then dismissed like a child who doesn't see the hypocrisy in front of them.

    Perhaps, had I not been distracted and caught up in the lie, I would have noticed, as you said, through the research I was engaged in, that one of the top recruits that I had placed in my draft pool had just retired a few months ago.

    Realizing that that had happened, as I was simultaneously being dismissed by ownership, contributed even more to the fervency of my anger at the lies and the manipulation of the drafting speed.

    But, it's all good.

    I am no longer upset at the lies or the distraction they caused, I said my peace and offered a solution.

    Those within the organization have to deal with the continued rejection of innovation and suggestion.

    Which continues to lead to reduced retention of clientele.

    I am currently participating in two separate draft leagues, both of which have less then 50% participation.

    I guess, even in the real world there are franchises who are mailing it in on a regular from decade to decade.

    So, why should I be upset if half the league is nonexistent?

    Sincerely,

    Robert Cal Richards Jr.
