Gentlemen: I am wondering if perhaps it is time to review whether the HFNHL is worth the effort invovled to continue it. There is an enormous amount of work involved just to update and manage the files, (work which has apparently become further complicated with the transfer of sim duties and the attempt to update the files to a newer version of FHL, the result of which appears to be many corrupted/damaged files which have to be manually reset). There are also very large upcoming questions related to the strike, among them wheher player ratings should change next year (assuing this year happens at some point) and what happens to the entry draft. And then there are the changes that can be expected coming out of a new CBA... Meanwhile, our league has definitely evolved into group of haves and have-nots, with people's finances spiralling more and more out of control. I know that the NHL does not yet have the stones to consider this option, but has anyone here considered the possibility of scrubbing the league and then either starting from scratch, or walking away (for those who are simply too tired of the hassle)? This is not a proposal - I myself am not sure where I land on the question. It's more opening a subject for consideration and discussion. I just wonder what the relative merits are of continuing this obviously tortured process... I certainly recognize from first-hand experience just how work and time people have invested into running their teams (myself included), and I don't want to devalue that commitment. Nick, for example, would surely have a coronary if he thought that his super-team was going to be denied another shot at finally winning a Cup! :lol But I think it's a serious discussion worth having. Do we fish? Or cut bait?
