New Idea for LIVE league Topic

We all know LIVE leagues are hard to fill.  Partly due to frustration with the same old cookie teams, partly because of ridiculous too hard to draft themes.  I have one that could take care of everyone while eliminating many of the cookies.

I will set the salary cap reasonable.... say 120-140.  Each of the divisions has a different decade to choose from and has to stay within it.
No AAA or trades allowed.  The 6 divisions:

Depression               1930-1939
Golden Age               1950-1959
Pitchers Dominate  1960-1969
Sideburns/Disco     1970-1979
Cocaine Cowboys  1980-1989
Millenium                  2003-2013

Any interest?  Looking to have about 40 games min live to make playoffs and we would have some full interleague balanced schedules.

I might be interested in playing a LIVE league again.  I think 110-120 would be a great cap.  It would promote diversity within each decade, so the teamss aren't loaded with all the same stars.

Good Points.  My Idea was to have each of the 6 above themes be limited to a single division.  For example, the NL West would be based on Golden Age and all teams in it would follow that theme.  That way you have a Divisional champ from each decade.  If you notice also, I excluded the Deadball and 1920s which take care of the Joss, Johnson, Alexander, Ruth issues.  Also the 90's which solve the Pedro/Maddux issues.
