I tell you, the wisdom of Solomon is amongst us. Footie gets first place, immediately followed by Dip. Got my vote.

August start for the next round doesn't seem too bad.

Obviously as moderator Mike's views and availability time are paramount and I'm sure we'd all accept any ruling on that basis.

Generally though I'm not in favour of anything other than a very short break. We all have our own playing times and dates that are less convenient than others and purely personally due to outside commitments later in the year it suits me best to carry on now. It's what we all signed up to after all.

I play in League 3 which has been beset with withdrawals/ surrenders this round. There has been much debate on future participation in or even existence of that league depending on whether enough replacements can be found. Thanks to those new players who have done so this turn.

Finding new players of course takes time and it appears ever more effort but a long delay in restarting is likely to result in increasingly dwindling interest and exacerbate that particular problem.

This is not a direct issue for anyone who has yet posted but I do think we need to view the whole league structure as a single entity and consider the potentially harmful effect of that aspect. It shouldn't evolve into a tournament just for the top rated players on the site.

Here, here, I second that.

Surely you can't play in January when the playoffs start?

And can't play September thru December when real football is on now can you?
