Have we got a challenge for you.

The Centenary League, which began in 1969, is looking for 5 good owners to assume the franchises listed below for our upcoming 2001 darft and season.

But first a bit about the league:

We do not use WW. We introduced the DH in BOTH leagues in 1995. We do encourage trading, of course. We draft our own AAA from the draft pool. We do not use the transaction deadline, so 159 games are played w/ AAA at your disposal. However, in-season trades are cut off at the 120 game mark.

Our draft order is determined by a Win Expectency formula developed by just4me. eagle61 can answer any questions about this, but in a nutshell, it is a performance based formula designed to reward teams for overperforming and penalize teams which underperform. Basically, the best anti-tanking method I've seen. The formula is cut off at the 120g mark so we can begin preparing for the next season's draft.

As for the next step, we are currently posting keeper lists. We have a private forum, so once I get confirmation, I will get the new owner access to this. You may keep up to 25 players, though if you keep 25, you will not draft until the AAA phase. IOW, the regular draft is used to get your roster up to 25 and then we draft AAA players from the remainder of the pool. DL players must not be sim-eligible for the upcoming season.

Great group of owners.

This is a challenging league, given the Draft Formula used to determine each season's draft order. If you like a good challenge, this may be just what you are looking for.

Sitemail me or post here if interested or w/ any questions.
