Dec 1. I remember my commissioner's answer when I told him that the Steps were "suggested." He replied that they are "suggested" in the same way that, if you were to go into the playoffs with a sentimental roster attachment, it is "suggested" that you pull the trigger on waiver wire claims to win a title. He pointed out that it was "suggested" I practice the Twelve Steps, if I wanted to win the league. So I try to manage daily as if I have a whole program of victory based on all Twelve of the "suggested" Steps.
