Quick question on expired teams…I am the commissioner of a league and we have one team that shows they have not renewed by the 1/31 date. However, they are still in the league (which is fine, I think they are just late to renewing). At what point will the system drop that owner and the team will become open?
There is a grace period for 10 days after the keeper deadline, where only the original owner of the team can renew it for the season. After this grace period expires, those teams will be marked as fully expired and be made available on the Claim Teams page. Once that happens, I’ll go in and manually remove any whole leagues that have disbanded, leaving just the teams in active leagues.
Issue I am having is the 3 owners are no longer responding even though they had said they wanted to stay in the league and are logging in everyday. Can I force through a abandon team so I can find new owners ASAP?
Also 2 of these owners seem to be holding up other leagues as well…
You can track what expiration dates are for each team in Commissioner Tools. That date can happen because of how people renewed before we changed to a standard renewal date before last season, but it should not be an issue going forward.
This season the renewal deadline and keeper deadline are not coupled, so I want to be clear that teams that are not renewed become available 10 days from the renewal deadline (yesterday), not 10 days from the February 15, 2022 keeper deadline.
In terms of the free round of cuts that a new owner gets when they take over the team, do they still get that even if they take over before the keeper deadline?
For example, say Bob doesn’t renew and Jim takes over the team on February 14th. Jim fails to get his cuts in before Feb 15th end. Does Jim still get a round of penalty free cuts after the deadline? Or would the commish have to do them manually at that point?
