Isn't it somewhat unfair not to include all current RANZBA members in discussions over the future of the league?

Sam knows we're the whiners. He just lets us do it early

The whole plan will be in a season or two and rolled out for RANZBA -- and not a final plan, still open for input.

This is the preliminary, test-the-waters plan which forces me to think and deal with it rather than procrastinating

And a new proposal with Heinzie's realignment thing, a new playoff system & as schedule change

1 -- we move to 3 divisions of 8 teams each

2 -- every 10 years we realign. The 3 teams with the best record are crowned Decade Champs and get a division named after them. -- So you'd play in the Gomer Division or the Timmerman Division for the next 10 years. The rest of the league picks their division with worst (??) record picking first, etc.

3 -- Playoffs: 3 Division winners are in and get byes. The next 8 teams get in and play each other in 3 or 5 games series until we get one winner -- call it the Wildcard Tourney. This winner then plays the division winners for the premiership.

4 -- Balanced schedule -- either 161 games -- each team plays one another 7 times a season or a 184 game season where each team plays each other 8 times

(see -- this is why I run stuff through you gusy since I get crazy)

Whatever suggestions I make would ultimately be futile since it's pretty much just an oligarchy that runs things. I'm just around for comic relief.

So go ahead and knock yourselves out.

I love those changes - one tweak I'd suggest is, rather than the Gomer or Timmerman division - have that crowned GM pick a retired player to name it after. Like I could call mine the Marsh Division (after should-be-HOFer Zach Marsh)

i think the champs should draft the divisions...if you are the worst team its unlikely you know who will pick what divsion...so just do a round robin of the champs :)

8 wildcard teams is too many

4 would be plenty


Making it that easy to make the "playoffs" dissuades teams from making any major moves, since they can easily slide into the playoffs then roll the dice.

Also, I'd advise not saying anything to the group at large until about 3-4 seasons beforehand. Just enough time to get their picks, cash, etc in line.
Bring it up too early, you may have guys bail prematurely.
