    Alright, I'm trying to get a league name set in stone. Here's the general league idea from my other thread.

    Please vote!
    1. You can play your games (read, kickoff begins) between 5pm EST and 11pm EST) Perhaps slightly later if games in M15 don't take 1hour/60mins
    2. "Slower" advance pace. I put that in quotes because slow is relative. TMFL advances every 48hours, my idea would definitely not be that. Per 7 days, 2 advances. That allows for us busy folk or people with busy family lives still time to dive in.
    3. General Manager focus. Some additional team management rules above and beyond (things like trade restrictions, trades with CPU allowed, additional cap penalties, whatever else we can think of to promote a more in depth Management experience)
    4. Simulate every other season to playoffs - then play the playoffs as normal. This is for a few reasons.
      1. A slower advance pace means we would get in less seasons over the entire M15 cycle. Simulated seasons will allow us to get further into the file
      2. In a simulated season, things like team chemistry (which has been teased for M15) and overall team composition are emphasized - which this league wants
      3. Getting deeper into the file will reward good cap management. Bad contracts will punish you. Good contracts will reward you.
      4. More offseason nights are always a good thing.
    5. A slower advance pace, in theory at least, means more time for content. I would personally head up a good deal of content including power rankings, possibly a podcast as I have done in the past, rookie previews, mvp polls etc - anything to get the league interacting really. With 48 hour advances league content is out of date the day after its put out. With only 2 advances a week, there is time to research more and enjoy more of the content that's created.

    Thats about as far ahead as I've thought. This is obviously just me spitballing but, at least its out there now.

    1) You need an 'Other'
    2) You have a forum to use.

    Maybe someone with a bit more graphic design skill can do something that combines a hard hat and football helmet.

    I dislike the idea of CPU trades, unless the commish can approve first.

    It's way too easy to trade rape a cpu team in madden.

    I agree. Shouldn't be hard to monitor if someone does it either; just check the transaction list.

    Patience my friends. Our forum area isn't setup but this is our Bible, so to speak. I just haven't posted it yet because this thread is meant for voting on the league name. We'll discuss other topics probably next week, after we settle on a name :)

    Wait, if we have 32 teams, how would we be able to trade with a CPU? makes no sense
