Having commished a salaried keeper league for 5 seasons I have a fair idea of what needs to be done to keep a league rolling along. With that said I feel my involvement here must remain limited, as a father of 4 and a commish elsewhere I simply cannot devote as much time here as I would otherwise like. The rule change discussions are coming along nicely, but I think it's time we work out who exactly is on committee, and what their role will be.
Here's some possible roles:
Forum Manager, someone to handle the forums, moving posts etc. Current moderators are silentjim, RedHopeful, Fenris-77, and DVauthrin, so probably covered here already, but it might be helpful if one of you guys takes up a lead role and focus on it, letting the other guys tackle the other tasks. With that said all committee members could probably do with mod status here.
League Commissioner setting up the (Yahoo! or ESPN?) league, adding rosters etc. I think yahoo! allow for co-commish but at the risk of both commissioners hoping the other guy takes care of things it might be easier to just let 1 GM take care of it. Most of the work here is in the preseason, with the exception of some occasional roster edits, and occasionally checking the benches.
League Auditor, managing the googledocs site and occasionally checking team salaries. Self explanatory really, while rotating inactive guys on/off your bench is pretty obvious, salary cap breaches can be easily missed. It's really a matter of checking a teams cap situation just before the start of the season, plus after any trades or free agent moves, and making sure everything is legit.
League Attorney Redraft the rules with all the final changes, and redraft them well. They need to be clear, concise, yet cover everything. Purely a preseason task, but experience tells me a difficult and very important one.
League Secretary, setting the league schedule, setting dates for the lottery, draft, trade deadline, start/end of free agency etc. Ultimately, we need to have some established dates so everyone knows when they need to haul their asses back in here. This is preseason only, someone could probably manage this and also act as.....
Recruiting Officer Occasionally checking activity levels and finding replacement GM's where necessary.
Not sure if there are some other tasks I missed, makes you realise how much Kal did the last two seasons. Anyhow, throw in your 2c, maybe we can redefine these roles where necessary and hopefully get some folks to stick their hands up.
