40s Rosters are now past due...
The rosters were due and if you didn't have 8 by last Friday, the DTA said you would be cut and no refunds. Well, we are past Friday and there are a number of rosters without 8 players.
In 4.5, the best rosters are Rossouw and Sweeney followed by Brookhaven. Sweeney has Travis Rich at 5.0 and Rossouw has himself and Brandon Myers. Sweeney can still add another and I suspect Rich and 5.0 TBD will be better. No knock on Marc and Brandon but they are not at the level of Rich. Add Gene Davis to the roster who is a 5.0 with a 4.5 rating and you have to like this team. It is early and rosters can change.
In 4.0, Fretz/Clark is probably the best roster. They look to have a lot of bumpdowns. Canyon Creek appears to have taken a step back. The McKinney/Peterson-Frick team has the same guys who haven't been able to get it done the last few years.
In 3.5. I don't know anything. All I notice is there aren't many teams.
One thing of note, Austin got to play with mid-season ratings. Therefore, they don't have to deal with the large number of bump ups. This puts Austin at a decided advantage. I was told by a friend of a friend of a friend... that the reason we went to year end ratings is because Austin said there would be no more mid-season leagues without showing good cause... Hmmm... In the end, this is probably for naught as Austin should be loaded at 40s and this is playing for second place.
