It took a lot of work, and I consulted with several people here (including the commissioners) but attached here is a copy of what I hope will become our League Constitution. It incorporates all our rules and procedures, and I hope I didn't leave anything out.
If you can think of anything that I got wrong, or left out, please post it in this thread.
I'd like to pass this now, rather than during the off-season, so hopefully all the owners will get a chance to look at it.
This is the formula for the schedule for a 20 team, 4 division league in which each team plays division opponents twice and all other teams once.
First, teams need to be grouped by division and numbered, 1 through 5 in each division and 1 through 20 for the entire league. Other than that it's not essential that you put them in any particular order, but listing them by the order of last year's finish helps assure that teams won't end up playing each other in the same weeks each year....
The Larrupin' Lou's (Gehrig Champions) take on Planet Express (DiMaggio Champions). Each team is making their first NYYFans.com World Series appearance.
The Lou's clinched a playoff spot on the last day of the season, while the Express took an early lead and never looked back, dominating the league with a perfect 54.0 Power Rating (best overall record, most overall points, best overall breakdown).
CBS Sports has it as a 680 - 617 advantage for the Express.
If you want a grudge match while the playoffs are going on, post it here and I'll schedule it.
(H) Planet Express vs (A) Those Hobbled Men in their Tattered Stirrups
(H) Larrupin' Lou's vs (A) Springfield Nuclear Powerplant
Top 2 scoring teams in the league facing off in the Division Round.
In the Championship game, if Planet Express wins, they will be home, if Those Hobbled Men in their Tattered Stirrups win, they will be on the road against the winner of the Larrupin' Lou's vs Springfield Nuclear Powerplant game. The league has given permission for each team except Those...
So... I only just started to evaluate, but there seems to be a real unfairness to this year's schedule...

A reminder to our two Wild Card teams: Tomorrow is a holiday -- that means 1:00PM games. Please set your lineup well ahead of time.
Last week of the regular season! How can it be Tuesday with no thread?
Playoff spots on the line!
4-Guys With Wood
6-Springfield Nuclear Powerplant
With two weeks left in the regular season, there seems to be only one team with a locked up postseason spot, same as last week: the Planet Express.
The following are eliminated:
Boras' Evil Holdouts
Gehrig: Miko has a 1g lead and will hold that going into the final week of the season. A win, and he clinches another Gehrig title. A loss and a win by the Lou's and the Lou's clinch the title.
DiMaggio: Planet Express has clinched the division and the #1 seed in the playoffs
Mantle: Powerplant and Wolverines head into the final week tied for first. Powerplant is (2-0) against the Wolverines, so they will clinch the division if the teams finish tied.
