    Default Need 2 Owners-Long term Keeper Auction league that "emulates" the real GM experience

    The league I am commissioner of is in need of two owners for two of our franchises. Two long term owners (10+ years) called it quits this season so we need to replace them.

    We are a 12 team (3 divisions) Head-to-Head league Auction keeper league (see signature). Currently top 6 teams make playoffs. Buy-in is $115 for the season Pot is about $1000 or so (depending on other fees), and is divided up as such. Division winners get 10% each, Wildcards get 5%, Advance to 2nd round get another 5%, advance to championship get another 10%, win the championship get final 15%. SO max winnings is 40% (we spread the money around). We also have awards including trophies for division winners and wildcard winners. It is a very active league, tons of trade talks and trades, we do daily lineup changes, but weekly FAAB for add/drops.

    The rosters (see below) have some good talent and money to spend at auction, but def. could use some re-tooling, rebuilding

    The owners must live near NYC, or be able to attend the league auction every March. The league is very serious, and has had most of the 11 owners for at least 8 years or more. Our league's goal has always been to "emulate the real GM experience." So we are allowed to sign players to long contracts, extend players, we have a 20 man minor league system. We use HQ custom valuator to determine the cost of extending or re-signing a player.

    If you are interested, and want to know more, I can share our latest constitution and discuss any questions and details about the league.

    Team 1 is clearly in better shape as it has some star players to build around or deal for packages, longoria, votto, puig, yan gomes, Gio Gonzalez.

    Team 2 has mostly free agents so will have a ton of money to spend at auction but I think it will take a year to build this one up, has some talent to dream on in domonic brown, pedro alvarez, chris carter.

    For what its worth, Colby Garrapy took over a pretty bad team 2 years ago and took it to the playoffs the same year so quick turnarounds are possible. But if you know what your doing and know the farm system you will be able to build a competitive team relatively quickly.
