    I'd like to be able to associate the team name with the coach. Since the Hot GRITS (Hot Girls Raised in the South) were unceremoniously/randomly shifted to the North league, the team name has been changed to BOUNTY DATZ.

    I don't think geography had much to do with realignment.

    We should drop the geographic designations and go with something truly lame like call one division "Leaders" and the other "Legends."

    I like this idea about dropping geographic designations. My truly lame suggestions:

    Red State/Blue State
    Smackdown/RAW
    Jacobs/Moses
    O'Toole/Duany

    I'm OK with dropping the geographic designations, I just didn't like leaders/legends

    Leaders/Legends was just a lame example that some knuckle head would implement for a second rate college football conference.

    4 hours. But that 4 hours goes from 8AM EST to 6PM EST.

    I'd vote for division names with an urban planning spin, like the Robert Moses vs. Jane Jacobs or Andres Duany vs. Randal O'Toole. Current vs. Comprehensive and Consultants vs. Bureaucrats also come to mind. Being an engineer by profession and not a planner, I'm sure there are better options than these out there, considering my limited point of view.

    I think the North set a new record yesterday: the first 2 teams went Viking on Day 1 of the draft.

    Great idea turbo ... I bet you were so excited when you came up with that idea you spilled your Swanson's TV dinner all over yourself ruining your favorite pair of tighty-whiteys.

    THREE Vikings!

    New division names:

    Pickers/Plodders
    Quick/Dead
    Gumby/Pokey
    Wakers/Waiters

    Don't know why I bother posting here since this is clearly the SLOW league with 3 gone Viking. Whoever wins this league should have an asterisk next to their title.
