2016

Not many changes occurred between the 2015 season and the 2016 season. The only two significant additions were the graphics which got a major overhaul and the adjustment to the defensive scoring settings. In an attempt to make some of the better defenders just as important as some of the key offensive players, tackles were adjusted from 1 point each to 1.5 points each. Assisted tackles went from 0.5 points to 1 point each. This addition was a major success as we started to see defenders like Luke Kuechly, Kwon Alexander and Landon Collins in the Top 10 in league scoring.

There were a several newcomers to The League! in 2016. Tam Van (DaTaminator), Aaron Mathiason (Barbaric Milk Jousters), Chris Butler (Breakin Tackles), Richard Glenn (Maclin on Dat Ass), Larry Mrozowski (Church of Zero Tolerance) and Jamian Shavers (Carnival of Pain). We had three team name changes (two mid-season) as Georgia Boy changed their team name to Da South, Cacahuetes Orange changed their team name to The Cruciates Curse and Jamstradamus changed their team name to the House of Cards before the season started.

The Origins Conference consisted of three divisions, North, Central and South. The North Division consist of the Barbaric Milk Jousters, the Clam Diggers, DaTaminator and I Got Sacks On Sacks On Sacks. The Central Division consist of Breakin Tackles, the Carolina Hitmen, Da South and Hakeem I Saw I Conquered. The South Division consist of the BUCKNASTY BOYS, DeSeantourage, I Go Deep and Maclin on Dat Ass.

The Legends Conference consisted of three divisions, East, Central and West. The East Division consist of Beer, Cheese, & Brats, Hyde Yo Wife, The Cruciates Curse and The Gremlins. The Central Division consist of the Carnival of Pain, the Church of Zero Tolerance, the NC Titans and the Surprise Scorpians. The West Division consist of the House of Cards, Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood, Phlying High and the Soul Snatchers.

Each team played every team in their division twice (home and away), every conference team once and two teams from the other conference. Each division champion and one wildcard would make the playoffs (8 total teams, 4 from each conference). The remaining 16-teams (8 from each conference), would play for their conferences Draft Lottery, a chance at obtaining the 1st overall pick in next season’s draft.

SEASON SUMMARY:

Final Four Teams: Beer, Cheese, & Brats, the Church of Zero Tolerance, I Go Deep, I Got Sacks On Sacks On Sacks

E.L.S.I.E. Bowl V: Beer, Cheese, & Brats 195.38 – I Got Sacks On Sacks On Sacks 143.96

2015

The 2015 season saw the biggest changes The League! has seen since it’s inception. The biggest change being the move to the MyFantasyLeague.com platform, merging into one 24-team league. The move was primarily due to flexibility issues with the NFL.com platform as most of the features we wanted to include in The League! could not be done naturally. In example, the Home Field Advantage Rule.

The League! would now be separated into two conferences (Origins and Legends Conferences) with two separate player pools for each conference. Each conference was then separated into three divisions. The League! also moved to a 16-game regular season with the addition of three Double Header Weekends.

The merging of the existing 36-teams from the previous three leagues into one 24-team league was open to all senior league members first (meaning Origins members had first rights, then the Class of 2013 and so on). Division re-alignment focused on trying to keep the rivalries already developed in place.

The Origins Conference consisted of three divisions, North, Central and South. The North Division consist of the Clam Diggers, Dread Pirate Oso, I Got Sacks On Sacks On Sacks and JUICE’s and BERRY’S. The Central Division consist of the Carolina Hitmen, Georgia Boy, Hakeem I Saw I Conquered and the San Diego Goats. The South Division consist of 1010011010, the BUCKNASTY BOYS, DeSeantourage and I Go Deep.

The Legends Conference consisted of three divisions, East, Central and West. The East Division consist of Beer, Cheese, & Brats, the Cacahuetes Orange, Hyde Yo Wife and The Gremlins. The Central Division consist of Famous’ Crablegs & Bootlegs!, Fear The CAT, the NC Titans and the Surprise Scorpians. The West Division consist of Jamstradamus, Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood, Phlying High and the Soul Snatchers.

The season was increased to a 16-game season, with each team playing every divisional team twice (home and away), every conference team once and two teams from the other conference. Each division champion and one wildcard would make the playoffs (8 total teams, 4 from each conference). The remaining 16-teams (8 from each conference), would play for their conferences Draft Lottery, a chance at obtaining the 1st overall pick in next season’s draft.

SEASON SUMMARY:

Final Four Teams: DeSeantourage, Dread Pirate Oso, Hyde Yo Wife, Mr. Rodgers Neighborhood

E.L.S.I.E. Bowl IV: Hyde Yo Wife 140.58 – DeSeantourage 113.48
