Glad you like it.. I like it more and more as I think about it but doubt it gets much traction. Most leagues are pretty traditional . But it handles fairness fairly simply-- if you cannot make top 4 of 8 -- too freaking bad that you think the other conference is weaker.
16 is a lot of managers so smaller groupings could lead to more rivalries
My bottom line is still that I will play whatever-- All my other leagues have had no divisions or had largely meaningless ones
Don't mind me though-- Not for this league but generally , I have all sorts of quirky ideas such as
1. A H2H league where every manager had two distinct teams ( do not play each other nor trade with each other) and the winner is best aggregate points total. I thought of a 6-8 manager league so that would be 12-16 "teams"
2. How about a league where the rights to every player are available 2 or 3 times ( I doubt any regular league hosting could handle it but some computer dude could probably make it so they become separate players -- Lundqvist1, Lundqvist2 and Lundqvist3)-- Lundqvists rights would be available 3 times so 3 different teams could roster him or one team could roster him twice and on a busy night have to decide if they roll Lundqvist times 2 or Lundqvist and Halak--
Regular fantasy is loads of fun but I keep consider different options
