The list is pretty complete as far as I can see

Not true. He is out from Bontrager into Argos as a stagiaire (which is correct). You cannot find him on the Argos page, but he is listed as an incoming transfer on the Sky page.

2012 was my first year playing and I enjoyed it, but I found that I started ignoring the league further into the season. What if we changed this league to one where you picked a team at the start of the year, but throughout the season you had to choose which riders from your team you would select to ride for the week?

I don't know how this would be organized, but I assume a system would have to be built from scratch. If the majority of people agreed that this is a good idea, I would surely donate some money to whoever could make it happen.

I just think that it would be even more fun to keep all the players engaged in the game each week.

Personally I think the beauty of the game is the "hands-off" element of it. You've got weeks and months to pick your team but once it's January that's it and we see how it plays out over the season. A season-long game like yours does not reward who is the best at picking a team, moreover it rewards those who pick every week, do not miss a week for work/holiday etc. and maintain interest all season long.

Does anybody think for a second that a secret that big wouldn't come out? Bill Stapleton

Agreed. I think the game would benefit a lot if it was in the Professional road racing. There'd be much more intrest from people that will never notice Games section.
