Renew a Private League from last season

Private Leagues can be "renewed" from year to year, allowing returning managers to jump right into the new season with the same settings used last season. Private Leagues automatically renew by default. You can manually renew early. To disable Auto-renew, you must manually renew your league and update Auto-renew settings in commish tools.
