    Alright TMFL25,

    I've decided to actually take some feedback in the team selection process. I've spend more time than I would like to admit doing this and I wanted to share my initial rough draft of the team layout. As such, I want to tell you a little more about my thought process.

    My goals:
    • Give people a team they like as much as possible.
    • Create balance in each division based to "talent".
    • Group people with similar schedules.
    The end result should be easier scheduling, more competition and less people dropping from the league. Now, I'm not saying this draft is perfect, because I know it isn't.
    What I want from you is this:
    • Give me some feedback if you are terribly unhappy with the team you've been assigned. No, I don't care if you think you deserve a team more than another person. Read that again, I DON'T CARE. I want to know if it's an issue because you hate the team. I get it, I'm a Browns fan and I don't want to play as the Ravens.
    • Do you think your division is balanced? I don't want you to have zero chance for 10 seasons.
    • Do you think all the divisions are balanced. I don't want someone who has a routinely easy run.
    • Do you see any obvious scheduling issues. This is why bringbackjimmy is as far away from me as possible. :inpain: Also, there is nowhere good to put bawvu97 and his up before the birds schedule. :facepalm:
    What I'm going to do with this feedback is give you an opportunity to influence your fate a little bit and try to create an even stronger league.
    That said:
    • There will be NO bitching.
    • There will be NO bickering.
    • There will be NO crying.
    • I won't be offended if you have a rational opinion and disagree.
    • Ultimately, I run this league and I will distribute teams as I see fit for the greater good.
    So, here is the initial draft:


    Thoughts, opinions, general shenanigans?

    I didn't ask people to try to reorganize themselves. If anyone wants to have a team that can relocate, they should say that.

    I want to give some credit to MoonBBad. I asked him if he'd rather give up the Skins (who he loves more than his wife) and play in a less competitive division and he chose to go 1-15 every year.

    That's dedication and I tip my hat to you Mooney! He did beat me in my final year as the cowboys so it isn't like he's a pushover.

    I have mixed emotions...

    I love the idea of being able to duel it out with OMlawdog, Philstyle, and The Richuation twice a year, and it would create a great some intense battles.

    I obviously have a huge love for my Falcons and was excited to possibly have the ability to use the rookie CBs we drafted and be able to run them full cycle as they developed.

    Only playing in one league on TSO, I really enjoy being able to use my favorite team. I wish I had more time to join a second league and be able to have one with them and one without, but it just isn't feasible for me.

    I definitely see the direction you want to go here, and will go with whatever is best for the league and do so in a happy manner.

    I expected you to be one of the guys who would have preferred their favorite teams. That said, you ran train on those guys last year. :) I also know you put the league first.:)

    Looks good. I thought for sure I was going to get fed to Lawdog, Peench and Phil all in one division. But given that I'm not, everyone can look forward to playing the London Cardinals! :D

    I love the fact that I am the Rams in this draft...huge for me.

    Man the AFC East is a tough division, but I love the fact that you put it together like that.

    Lots of guys got their favorite team or a top two team that they wanted, again worked out nicely.

    The league overall looks very balanced man, solid work...buy yourself a beer bro!

    That's not a pushover division you're in, especially with the talent the 49ers and Seahawks have.

    If anyone really doesn't want their team then I am open to switching. Being the Bears again is not a priority for me so feel free to move me around if someone just absolutely hates their team. I'm flexible.

    I'm not hating, but they aren't nearly as talented, and that's being fair.

    (y) from me obviously. I love the AFC east as well lol that will be awesome to watch.


    I know Gravity had a little disinterest in the bears. If that has anything to do with me please PM me. I know we have both had issues with each other but I am willing to work them out for the better of the league.

    You actually got slotted there because I didn't have anyone who wanted them.

    That has some to do with it, but I know you're gonna improve gameplay wise so I'm not worried about that. I just find them boring to play with but I did list them third because if no one wanted them then I would take them.
