As everyone is probably aware by now Mark made the announcement on Friday that this would be the last season of the AML network. While we are sad to see this happen after 5 years of great fantasy sports playing across 4 sports, this is also an opportunity for this community to step up and keep something going that is much more than just Mark. Our love for the sports we play and the community that this network has created over the years.
I know some people have had concerns and some have even left over the weekend because they felt the network would just shut down this week. I am here to say that this isn't the case. The AML network will continue to run through it's regular football, hockey and basketball seasons before any action will be taken to the website or the leagues.
I also want to reassure people as I did on Friday night that THIS NETWORK WILL CONTINUE. There is too large a core of guys here to just let everything fall apart. It may not be called AML and it may not be run on this same website but our contract leagues and standard leagues will continue to operate. How this will look will depend on all of us. I am willing to take over and work with others in this network to find viable options to keep this community together and alive. We have time so please do not rush to judgement. We ask for your time and support as we plan for the future knowing that there is a committed group of guys working to make sure these past 5 years have not been for nothing.
To those who have said they would help me already let me express my thanks. This network and the future network cannot run without your assistance and support. For those that wish to get more involved please drop me a message either on this site or through my email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are someone with website building and tech skills we would love to have you on board to help with the transition.
To those that wish to not continue with the network and want to leave I respect that and I can't control your decision. I would ask that if you want to leave network regardless of it continuing then please email me with your team name and the leagues you are in and we will plan for your departure but I would ask that you remain active in the current leagues until a suitable replacement can be found.
Thank you to all of you. I never would have thought I would have so much fun in a network, let alone help run one but everyone of you has shown me a passion for sports and I wish to see this continue.
