PostSubject: League Structure Revision Proposal   Tue Sep 08, 2015 9:50 am

This is not meant to be or turn into a complaint about the way divisions line up, etc. Just based on observations, I started thinking about how we can better structure the league to meet the many competing goals which includes crowning a Champion fairly as well as keeping folks involved and in tune as long as possible (though, as an aside, I have to say I think this year has been the best year for that, so kudos all around). Anyway, first the proposal, then some of the rationale in a separate message:

1. Eliminate Divisions
2. Play each team once, so 19 week regular season
3. Add 4 teams to playoffs (so ten teams)
4. Playoff format (We technically add 3 weeks to playoffs shortening regular season, so I will highlight how that's used):

a. Week 1 - Bottom 4 playoffs teams play ("Wild Card/Play in" whatever you want to call it); so top 6 get byes
b. Week 2 - 8 remaining teams play (Divisional round - I get the irony)
c. Week 3 - 4 remaining teams play (Semi-Finals)
d. Weeks 4 and 5 - 2 week Championship
e. No longer play last week of MLB season

The way the 3 "add'l" weeks were used - wild card, 2nd week of Championship and skipping last week of MLB season. I think this is something we can implement for 2016 if it passes.

We could leave payouts as they are with top 4 teams representing division winners and the next 2 getting wild card money. The next 4 in would have to fight for their payoff in the playoffs.

I like the proposal but think 10 playoff teams is too many...
What about 8?
4 play the first week (1-4 get byes)
4 play the second week (1 & 2 get byes)
4 play the third week (no byes)
2 play the fourth and fifth week

Just a thought, but I'd prefer a change to 10 teams as opposed to keeping the same 6.

while im okay with playing out another year with these divisions because thats what was agreed to or whatever, i agree they need to go. It just isnt competitive for paid league tbh. While it is my own fault for going AWOL for year, my team isnt a bottom 4 team talent wise (or actually attempting to roster a team wise lol) so everyone that got drafted in my division pretty much got shafted as their designated whipping boy for 3 years isnt really that.

Thats just one example of why I dont like divisions anymore. So yeah Im with the above two on that. I agree with thome that 10 teams is too many as that is half the league. I actually was brainstorming in my head an alternative and I think thome's suggestion is spot on.

I'll 2nd or 3rd Thome's proposal. Like it a lot. 10 is to many, opens the playing field a little but still really rewards the 1st and 2nd seeded teams with essentially two byes.

I'm fine with Thome's suggestion as well. My main points were 1 and 2 and making sure we do away with the last week of the MLB season as a any part of a Championship.

This looks to be going to a vote this offseason. Anymore league thoughts on it?

I'd also like to make it so that in the proposal just to be clear, the matchups would be:
Week 1:
8 seed vs. 5 seed
7 seed vs. 6 seed

Week 2:
Highest seed (6, 7, or 8 seed) vs. 3 seed
Lowest seed (5, 6, or 7 seed) vs. 4 seed

Week 3:
Highest seed (Bare with me, 4, 5, 6, 7, or 8 seed) vs. 1 seed
Lowest seed (3, 5, 6, 7 or 8 seed) vs. 2 seed

Weeks 4 & 5:
Championship

Since I have to do calendar stuff in the background, I think this can all be done and I can work around the all star week as well like i did this year but instead of have 3 shorter weeks we make it three longer weeks or whatever it comes out to be.
