+1 to this - I prefer going 17 weeks.

As for divisions I’m fine with 3 or with none. As long as we know at the start of the season either way works

The NFL season is 18 weeks now, so playing 17 weeks makes the most sense. I agree completely with Cary, either 3 divisions works or none at all too, just so we know prior to the start of the season.

I suppose future planning makes a difference here.

Do we think the league might expand beyond 12 teams in the future? If so, it might be tougher to get divisions.

I have liked the division thing in the past. Would teams stay in the same division from year to year, or would it be randomized yearly?

Also, I don't love the idea of tony just kicking in the extra $50. I'd support all of us sending in an extra $5 each, with the remainder covering shipping, etc.

I’m good with an extra $5.

I like divisions as it adds an extra layer of interest, IMO, and it’s like the NFL. If we want a 6 player playoffs, and we want 3 divisions, I suggest doing it this way.

Seeds 1-3 are taken from the division winners, sorted by record. Seeds 4-6 are wildcards selected by the next 3 teams with the best record, regardless of division.

Toilet bowl is seeded by record, regardless of division.

Completely agree on the extra $5. I would prefer no divisions but it's not that big a deal. The solution of seeds 4-6 being best records rather than division standings solves for the main problem I had.

Just wanted to confirm on the expansion to 12 and if so:

1.) Where do I send the money and how much?
2.) When is the Auction?
3.) Can I get an invitation to the league?

Thanks all and looking forward to it!

1) tonybmccormick at yahoo , looks like $105 based on the comments.
2) TBD, as close to the start of the season as I can make it with everyone's schedule. Yahoo made me choose Tuesday night after labor day but that will probably move.
3) Sending on Thursday after we confirm division structure.

Thank you all for the feedback and waiting to finalize decisions to give people more time.

I am still leaning to 17 weeks. I am still leaning 3 divisions. If everyone wants to move it to $105 dues to cover more tokens and small shipping budget then I certainly won't object.

To answer Wade's question, at the current time I don't see expanding beyond 12 without creating a secondary league and building on 8 player leagues.

I personally have like the semi-rivalries created in the divisions, for example the Wizards-Templars grudge match that has developed in the East division over the past 3 years. I also feel randomized divisions is fairer as losing to Mike in Game 1 every year has put me behind the eight ball early.

I would probably do randomized yearly but I can see permanent divisions.

Thanks and just shot over the dues!

In terms of structure, love divisions in general! Have done one with 2 big divisions (ala AFC/NFC) and always good to see the rivalries. Between seasons we swapped if the two teams involved agreed to the swap and led to some fun drafting situations.... 😉

Know the new schedule kinda moves stuff around a bit, but I will follow wherever you guys lead!

I'm all for whichever plan.

Will send $5

Maybe now we will be able to get a league run together....

You should see the dues from me as well. Looking forward to the league. It should be a lot of fun!

I would prefer keeping divisions, (2 or 3) and think randomizing the divisions every season would be an interesting twist. I would be fine with keeping set divisions to create rivalry if that was the majority vote. I would vote for playing into week 17. Tony, sent my bonus $5. Looking forward to the league expansion. Welcome Matt and Orion.

In other topics, I am not in favor of "$0" bidding during the auction. With additional league members the draft becomes even more important. Using your budget wisely is critical and one of the really fun aspects of auction drafting. If you blow your wad early or over bid too many times then you might have some not so fun choices later in the draft. Those are the consequences. With the league expansion, and covid still a possible monkey wrench, I think we should consider a bump in the base funding to start the season for waiver wire purchases.
