Happy to stay on. Will need to hunt down Daemon and ask, but I imagine he's keen as well.
What I propose is:
- Those currently with teams have first choice to keep their spots.
- If they elect to keep their squads then they have the option of retaining 5 (or 6?) players from their current squads.
- For those who don't wish to keep their squads, then all players are released. No taking over of squads by others. Creates an unfair advantage between new managers if one inherits a better drafted squad due to no action on their part.
- If there is an expanded league then neutral pitches and everybody plays everybody once.
I'm certainly keen to stay on, whatever the format is.
Maximum of 5 works for me.
How does a new deaft work with retentions?

Also, if you add more teams, you should make retentions go in what position they were drafted in, not what round.

Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
A - Kallis
B - Tendulkar
C - Dravid
C - Steyn
B - Murali
A - Anderson
A - Cameron White
B - Steve Harmison
C - Richie Benaud
If the competition was expanded to 6 teams, then in Season 2, A, B and C would only be able to retain one of their first 2 picks from season 1. As all of those players were in the first 6 picked in Season 1, they would all be Round 1 picks in Season 2. If that makes sense. White, Harmison and Benaud (if retained) would all be round 2 picks in Season 2 as they fall in the "Picks 7-12" bracket. etc etc
Keen to stay on.
I'll stay in the competition but I think I may be better off with a whole new squad.

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
I'd be happy with a redraft. Or maybe keep 3-4 players so GF can have his awsum bowling attack.
