"Can I quit a league?"
This question has come up many times and I would like to clear the air and give you guys (from VIP members to new members) some straight up answers.
Before I begin, I just want to let everyone know about what we expect from our league members.
When you commit to a league, you are expected to commit 100% to finishing that league - just like when we admins start a league, you members expect that we are 100% committed to finishing that league. It's that level of commitment that keeps the UL going from season to season, year to year.
So, can you quit a league? The short answer is SURE you can quit a league - but with possible consequences.
There are many ways to quit a league, so let's go over a few:
Just quitting (disappearing) to never be heard from again - or at least until the new Madden is released. This is the worst thing you can do here. Once you have been locked out, you have 1 week to respond. If you do contact an admin about getting unlocked you WILL be suspended meaning you will lose all of your teams and you will not be allowed back into the UL site for "X" amount of days (from 30 days to 1 year) depending on your membership at that time. If you are a constant problem, you may be gone for a year.
Telling an admin you quit because you don't like the game. Sorry guys, that's not a good reason to up and quit - finish the season.
Discussing with an admin about your league status. This is real life and we all understand things come up and taking the time to discuss anything that could keep you from completing the season is the best thing you can do.
When you take the time to discuss your situation with an admin, there is a good chance you can be relieved of your team without consequences. We will then turn to the waiting list and try to find a replacement for you while you continue to schedule and play your games. Also, if you come to an admin and you are 5 games behind - you will be asked to get your team up to date before a replacement is found.
The bottom line is to only commit to a league if you are 100% committed in finishing that league.
One thing to keep in mind is that we admins keep notes on everything you guys do here to help us track what is going on with each owner. Nothing gets missed. Running these leagues is not easy and we can only do so much - and we admins are just asking you guys to help us in getting these seasons to an end.
Do what you sign up to do - it's pretty simple.
Thanks for listening.
