He is graciously willing to help me learn how to operate the league, but I do not have bandwidth in my life for another full-time commish job.
Unless one of you would like to step up and interface with Nick to:
1. Take over the webpage, forum, and server (FTP) accounts; and
2. Learn how to do the finances and the offseason intricacies w/r/t our relegation setup,
then it looks like we're done.
I'm happy to be a grunt simmer if one of you decides to step up.

Not that much on average, but this league apparently takes some extra time at various points during the season (revenue calculations and editing finances, etc.).

I know these things are part of what makes this league unique, but they also have to be part of what makes it such a heavy lift each offseason.
Which of these two things can we drop to help ease the burden of each offseason? The odd financial structure rules or the Draft Lottery.
Here is my point. Both of these things are there to add challenge, balance, and prevent tanking. I think all those financial calculations and manually entering in each team's budget each year has to take a toll. I think this league can function just as well if it switched to a salary cap and kept the Draft Lottery as the lottery seems to take less time and effort. I think a salary cap (my guess, around 12 million) keeps a balanced playfield and cuts down on the time and effort to do each offseason.

If we took away relegation/promotion, or used the built-in support that v18 offers for it, then things might be easier.

Glad to have gotten Columbus back to Gold. Wish we could have finally won it all there.
Was nice meeting a bunch of you. Hopefully we run into each other in a future league.
