It's like a catch-22. Some say just set up the league and we go with it. I tried to give a heads up what we were going to do. And mixed emotions. If I just set it up, all this would have come out later anyway. At this point, the schedule won't change as everybody plays everybody..
The sticking point is how the playoffs will be handled. Either having one big league or two divisions. None of us are stupid and with absolutely no disrespect to anybody, but the chance of one of the B teams making it to the finals is not good. What I brought up was just a one year teansition setup for the B teams moving up to have a chance to get a team to the chip.
These B teams volunteered to move up to help the league as a whole. Think about it, they could have said no way and kept the ABC division format. And then what? A 4 team A Division. And we are back to where we started. I am looking at it realistically, the A div. Needs the 4 new teams to grow. The 4 teams that are moving up don't need the 4 A teams. I don't mean to be blunt, but just asking the teams in A to compromise.
And Will, you are in a division with teams 1-2 classes above you on a state level. You guys have to stop winning the league or getting to the finals every year.
That's parody. Lol
Honestly, I have pleaded my point. We have to do what's best for the league. Whatever that is? People tell me to just make a decision and stick with it. This is what Heels and I want ... And it's not popular. Three of the A teams from what I gather don't like the divisional setup and the fact all the teams make the playoffs. Knowing the Paragon guys, I think they will do whatever it takes to make the A division grow. I guess it's up to the A2 teams and the fact that they havent commented on here tells me they like it ....
Will, I think the world of you, Bucha and Smitty, and sincerely respect you guys and your opinions on here. I have played in this league longer than some of you are alive (41 years) and have seen everything there is to see and what has worked and not worked in those 41 years. And this method has worked. Just my humble opinion.
