    I may have the answer...

    1) We have two Yahoo leagues.

    2) The people who have made trades all go to one league, and as luck would have it, they are all up north... So, "Cyburbia North".

    3) Set the playoffs for 4 teams, in weeks 15 and 16 of each league, and week 17 the North plays the South for the championship. (I'm not sure if Yahoo will post the scores yet, but it can be done by hand if needed.)

    4) The two divisions (of 10... so far), use the same group of players, so Manning would be on a team in each division. Now the tricky part...

    5) Each existing team declares six keepers as described before. Then, the new teams select TWO players from the remaining rosters, plus ONE from the pool of talent that didn't come over... (example: If LaDanian Tomlinson is not on one of the teams in the division, he can be selected by a new team.) That way the new teams get one stud...

    6) Here is what I suggest for the divisions (I'm not sure where some of you are...):

    North

    Roughriders
    Clan Cheesehead
    ArgoNots
    Concord Kodiaks
    Still Psycho
    The Repo Men
    Oregon Wildfires
    Pac NW Plankton

    Possibles: Zman / geobandito


    South

    Ioweigions
    TehcValleyCollective
    Oyster Catchers
    Big Easy Kings
    N.O. Hot G.R.I.T.S.
    Coastal Captains
    Little Elm Libations
    Sign Permits

    Possibles: Jaxspra / The One


    Okay, suggestions?

    Mastiff, I think I like the idea a lot... in fact I know I like it a lot.

    Just tell me where to sign.

    Just thinking, of course we would like it lot... we are on the outside looking in.
    I just hope we are not rocking the boat a bit...

    Obviously, if this goes over... no trades outside the division.

    Ok, I could go for this idea.

    Sounds similar to something I was thinking about - only my split was east/west and I hadn't gotten into the technical details.

    This sounds good to me.

    I'm in for this idea.

    This setup will surely guarantee a rematch of the famous back bacon bowl games of the past.

    I like this idea. FYI, the Oyster Catchers are no longer based on the Eastern Shore so management is in heavy deliberations on a possible name change. Stay tune for further developments.

    I can go along with this, reluctantly (I still think another completely seperate league would be easier)....though we'd need to come up with something on draft order....how do we base it on last years standings now??

    Slightly off-topic, but can you still access last year's team on Yahoo? I can't even remember half the guys I had last season.

    I like the idea (even if all the best teams are in Cyburbia North ) Let's start getting some idea of times/dates, yes?

    I could go along with this idea if that is what the group decides. I just need to know if I am able to keep 3 or 6 players.

    I just split the order... Instead of:


    ROUND 1

    1 Roughriders
    2 TehcValleyCollective
    3 Oyster Catchers
    4 Clan Cheesehead
    5 Big Easy Kings
    6 N.O. Hot G.R.I.T.S.
    7 ArgoNots
    8 Oregon Wildfires (Via Concord Kodiaks)
    9 Still Psycho
    10 The Repo Men
    11 Coastal Captains
    12 Ioweigions
    13 Little Elm Libations
    14 Oregon Wildfires
    15 Pac NW Plankton
    16 Sign Permits


    You have:

    ROUND 1 (North)

    1 Roughriders
    2 Clan Cheesehead
    3 ArgoNots
    4 Oregon Wildfires (Via Concord Kodiaks)
    5 Still Psycho
    6 The Repo Men
    7 Oregon Wildfires
    8 Pac NW Plankton
    9 New Team
    10 New Team


    ROUND 1 (South)

    1 TehcValleyCollective
    2 Oyster Catchers
    3 Big Easy Kings
    4 N.O. Hot G.R.I.T.S.
    5 Coastal Captains
    6 Ioweigions
    7 Little Elm Libations
    8 Sign Permits
    9 New Team
    10 New Team

    And so on...

    You'll never "keep" six players. You'll cut down to six that no one can touch, then later, cut down to your final 3 keepers.

    Okay... That's eight. Who hasn't put in their $.02? I'd really like to hear from all the existing teams before we set things up. Where is everyone?

    Isn't the Cyburbia Bowl winner in your division?

    As a prospective owner of an expansion team in the CFFL the Z Man is waiting patiently. I think I will model my image as an owner after the rich oil tycoon character on the Simpsons.

    I've already sold about half of my season tickets and I have plans for the new stadium that I promised my investors and the City Council going through the local Planning Department right now, funded by sales tax, of course. All my money goes to the Republicans and the Jack Daniels distillery.
