(S5)Proposed Rule Change: Tournament
I'd like to propose a wrinkle to next year's tournament. Instead of having the mid-season bye week, I'd rather figure out a way to extend the season and allow for the Final Four and title games (at LEAST the title game) to span multiple weeks. Particularly in light of this year's late-season conference scheduling (which will be more pronounced if it repeats and there are two fewer teams in the league from which we draw players), dumb luck is going to be an unfortunate element of the tourney. Being able to add a sub to the lineup if one of your stars is only playing once is nice, but it would be even better if your star was playing 3 of 4 possible games instead of 1 of 2.

Just a thought.

I think any change that increases the sample size of your star players in important playoff games is a good thing, but default to commissioner's decision, per his workload.

One drawback (?): this would shorten the length of the regular season, especially if we did Final Four and Title Game.

Or we could start earlier. Don't we miss at least a week or two of games before our CEBE season kicks off?

RE: Proposed Rule Change: Tournament
I wouldn't be against starting the season a week early and extending the title game, especially if we allow 1 sub during the regular season games.

10/29-11/4 there were only 15 games (skipped this week)
11/5-11/11 there were 20 games (missed this week)
11/12-11/18 there were 36 games (1st week of the season)
12/24-12/30 there were 11 games (BYE week)
2/25-3/3 there were 24 games (Final Four)

Any week where every team doesn't play at least once should be scratched IMO. The weeks where there are only 20 Big East games won't be as bad if the sub rule is in effect. I'm always up for extending the season in any way, but we'd have to get started earlier on the draft.

RE: Proposed Rule Change: Tournament
The schedule every year is pretty much solely dictated by the real schedules. I.E. I start it as early as I can and it ends pretty much right when it should.
I go here...http://www.bigeast.org/Schedules/Schedul...eason=2012 to set it up in the preseason and as you can see, our title week falls on the final week of real life BE play.

That first week or two is usually slim pickens as far as total games played and the last week is always iffy.
In other words, we can't really extend the season more than maybe a week with an acceptable number of games.

lol I just saw J-Rye's last post. Those first two weeks were pretty weak which is why we started on the 12th.

We can take a look at the schedule when we get closer to next season and see if it's workable somehow.

RE: Proposed Rule Change: Tournament
What if we combined those first two weeks into the first week of CEBE play?

RE: Proposed Rule Change: Tournament
It really all depends on next year's schedule and how they lay it out. That's probably the most important thing I wait on when I'm starting up the league each year. The schedule HAS to be finalized by the time I fire up the CEBE.

But that's a possibility EL.

RE: Proposed Rule Change: Tournament
What if we knocked 2 weeks off the regular season and went to a double elimination bracket?

RE: Proposed Rule Change: Tournament
Just realized the bracket I posted would take 7 weeks, not 6. That's too much IMO, especially considering the 4th week of the tourney would be one game between the top 2 teams in the loser's bracket. Scratch that idea

RE: Proposed Rule Change: Tournament
True. Plus it kind of takes away from the March Madness feel to the tournament. Anyone has a shot.

I just really hate that I have drawn the eventual champ in my first game the last two years. Lol.

The main thing to me that I'd like to see is every team playing 12 on 12 every week. I'd be willing to give up the utility position even if that would make it easier. Make it 10 on 10. I'd like to see all teams going full strength. No one getting an advantage or getting taken advantage of by getting caught/catching someone on a short week. I put several hours into the draft as it is, I can't look at the schedule for 10 players for the whole season and see how their games are scheduled.
