A common theme through out this discussion has been "trying to please everyone." How do we rate these teams? Why are some rated higher at the state level but dropped to a middle div in norristown? If we split into tiny divisions and everyone makes the playoffs, you won't get a full effort from teams to bring guys down to fight for post season position. It's basically 6 months of pool play followed by a two week shootout by teams who look much, much healthier than they did in the summer. I'm just curious who we are trying to please by fractioning the league into such small groups? It's not that we just want to play with more teams, we want to compete with more teams. Unless the teams in A2 lack something I'm missing, why don't the 8 just play for 6 spots with the top two getting the bye? It seemed to work fine and usually rewarded the best teams and maybe once in a while a scrappy team from a 3-6 seed could knock off a top team. I don't know if you want your 1 vs 4 matchup being a 20-8 team vs an 8-20 team. I don't mean it as disrespect to you steve because I'm absolutely sure your intentions are always good for the league but people might take advantage of that occasionally. In our last four seasons in this league there have been a total of three different teams in the finals. I think it would add more energy to the league if the regular season included more parity as well as more comradery if we freshened up some rivalries.
