    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.

    Maximum of 5 works for me.

    How does a new deaft work with retentions?

    I'd assume that you miss out the number of round of the beginning equal in number to the number of people you retain?

    So if you retain one player, you take part from round 2 onwards in the draw. If you retain 2, you take part in round 3 onwards.

    Surely you should just have your players as pre-selected picks in the round you selected them in?

    eg. if you wanted to retain your round 7 pick in the first draft, you effectively miss your round 7 pick in this draft to keep the player.

    Oh, I guess that makes sense.

    I was just assuming people would only want to retain their first few rounds of players, but clearly that's not necessarily the case.

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

    If we keep the same number of teams that we currently have, then you'd just miss picks in the round you picked those players. However, if we expand something like this works best.

    Season 1
    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

    I'll stay in the competition but I think I may be better off with a whole new squad.

    Firstly, the database has changed significantly from what we originally picked, and people would make different decisions, especially towards their retired players. Secondly, half a dozen managers lost interest over the hiatus and I'd rather we replace them with people who'll stick with it.
    I lost interest because of ban + lack of simming tbf. Would like to stay in the comp.

    I'd be happy with a redraft. Or maybe keep 3-4 players so GF can have his awsum bowling attack.
