Hey everyone.

Looking for some volunteers to help develop a new financial model for the league, since our current one is inherently unfair and broken. I'm willing to do moth of the math/modelling (though help is always welcome!), just looking for people willing to provide some input on how we should set things up. Chris of the Yankees has already said he'd be willing to help (still in, Chris?), but I'd like to get a few more volunteers to make sure we have a diversity of viewpoints.

Thanks.

Still in, though my availability is intermittent at best right now. As we get further into summer it should free up, though.

Still looking for a few more volunteers. I'm willing to do most of the math, just looking for people to take part in the discussion.

Thanks.

I can participate as long as others handle the heavy lifting.  Definitely can assist with discussion and checking the model once it's built.

So,I'm about to get these discussions fired up, and thought I'd do one last call for volunteers. We're currently at 4 GMs, and I'd like to have an odd number in case we have disagreements and need to vote on things, so I'd like to add  another volunteer or three.

Let me know.

Thanks.
