Opening Day 2018 is slated to start on APRIL 22, 2018. Below are all the changes and a timeline for each team:
New Cap System:
With the introduction of the mostly successful cap system in 2017, we are now comfortable expanding on that idea to make it a truly enjoyable experience for all parties involved. We will now be going back to two-division format. Each division will have two caps.
Division 1: This league cap will be a maximum of 65 points from your top 12 players.
Division 2: This league cap will be a maximum of 52 points from your top 12 players.
This is year 2 of this experiment. What we learned from year 1 was that, there are teams who want to come every Sunday and play in a highly competitive league. Then there are teams who play for fun and their goal is to get together with their teams every Sunday after a hectic workweek. Going to two divisions with 2 different cap system should help us resolve both issues.
Ideally we want 8 teams in each division as a long term goal. However, that is looking unlikely in year 1 of two division format. What it looks like is, we should have 8 teams in Division 1 and 6 teams in Division 2. This may or may not change. If you are interested in starting a team, please contact us right away! All Free Agents looking for teams please contact us as well. There are plenty of room available for teams rounding out rosters. From early indications, here is where we stand:
