When I first joined the league I remembered how long the offseason felt. I remember the hype and excitement building up in my locker room as we approached the start of the season, and I remember all of us being really excited. As time has gone on I've seen players who have been around lose the excitement factor and for them the offseason is a time to almost disengage from the league for a little bit. Speaking as a GM with no other jobs in the league, I can tell you that the offseason adds some work and stress to the job. As it was highlighted earlier we have to work through drafts, scouting, reaching out to people, and trying to keep our locker rooms engaged as well. I don't have much else to worry about.
With all of that being said, I understand the two sides of the coin, and echo the balancing sentiment that was brought up earlier.
But, there is a comment that I really want to highlight.
We have an entire community of people who have interests all over the place. Some love to game, others might like a certain genre of movie, and others may love engaging in political debates. Whatever the case may be, every single person here has the ability to create something new and amazing and can lead the way there. One thing that stemmed from the VHL was a chess club created by @bigAL and now run by @Ricer13. Maybe @Horcrux can start a SAW (gross) watch party during the offseason, or @Esso2264 can host a LoL tournament. Maybe....well, the list is endless.
It's good to have these discussions, and I hope it prompts people to use their imaginations!
