Here's a comparison of the activity of the All Rocks Managers for EPL season 2011-2012. Teams highlighted in bold and orange font have indicated they will not return next year. Teams highlighted in bold and red font had low trades and/or long periods of inactivity where the teams were on autopilot - same squad and captain and only difference was auto subs. Only one of the teams highlighted in bold and red has so far indicated an intent to continue - Pittsadelphia. His team was on autopilot from GW 11-36 which was not an example of a manager who committed to stay active. Below the activity data is what the beginnings of the 2012-2013 All Rocks Leagues should look like. # Trades Last Trade Team Inactive Small Rocks 41 37 Vegas Virgins 39 37 ColdDogSoup FC 24 37 Rockville Gunners 28 38 Glorydaze FC 52 38 Sasha Juniors 40 38 blech_dawgs 32 37 FC Springfield 29 32 London St. Germain (Withdrew) 33 38 FC St. Pauli 34 38 FC Touchline Ban 30 37 ThiKu Mariners 26 30 In Off The Post (Withdrew) 43 36 Aviators 1 37 Pittsadelphia FC GW11-36 12 22 Pork Soda (Withdrew) Some use of bench 21 26 Park Lane GW 30-38 15 38 Dynamo Teso 31 36 ChrisSuttonsSlippers 16 38 Top Shelf 19 26 Kopite Juniors Some use of bench 17 21 Yellowcake Phantoms GW21-38 18 31 Ram It In There!

Those openings and when factoring in the INACTIVE managers, lead me to the following provisional league alignments. Note that I still moved FC Weymouth and Lees Summit Rangers to Dust because 1) they were relegated, and 2) If we have a Dust League it would be nice to have a couple of teams whose managers have All Rocks draft league experience. Managers who have expressed an intent to continue have ITC after their name. Small Rocks (All managers have indicated an intent to continue) Vegas Virgins ITC ColdDogSoup FC, ITC Rockville Gunners, ITC Glorydaze FC, ITC Sasha Juniors, ITC blech_dawgs, ITC FC St. Pauli, ITC (Promoted from VSR) FC Touchline Ban, ITC (Promoted from VSR) VSR ThiKu Mariners Aviators ITC Dynamo Teso (Promotion from Sand ChrisSuttonsSlippers (Promotion from Sand Top Shelf (Promotion from Sand ITC) Kopite Juniors (Promotion from Sand ITC) Yellowcake Phantoms (Original Member, previously very active; needs to commit again to stay active) FC Springfield ITC (Relegated from SR) Sand BiggerBoat, ITC (Promoted from Dust) Jedi Padawans, ITC (Promoted from Dust) wewunwunce (Promoted from Dust) Denocmuppet (Promoted from Dust) Keyser Soze Wanderers (Promoted from Dust) Park Lane (Relegated from VSR) 2 openings 1 spot requested by a friend of Scott's who posted in our thread. Dust FC Weymouth (Relegated from Sand; ITC) Lees Summit Rangers (Relegated from Sand; ITC) 6 openings Yellowcake Phantoms had a long period of inactivity this year. Jay has mentioned to me that life got in the way and he may withdraw for next year. However, as an original member and one who has been active for many seasons, he deserves the benefit of the doubt should he post he would like to continue and commits to be active next year. If Yellowcake Phantoms does not continue, then BiggerBoat would be offered that slot in VSR. If we are unable to recruit some new managers who vow to stay active, we will have to consider going with three leagues next year with maybe adjusting the size of the leagues. In that case, FC Weymouth and Lees Summit Rangers would be in Sand.
