3 Year Slide
If you've played progressives and like them, please consider this league. While it isn't a typical progressive it is a multi-season league with year to year advancment. It is designed to eliminate the long rebuilding process that happens in most progressives which I believe leads to owners abandoning teams. We will use 3 seasons simultaneously and everyone will have 6 main players from each season or a total of 18 players. When we advance to the next season everyone will replace 1/3 of their players, thus making every team very capable of winning at anytime or at least within a season or two.
This should be a very competitive league every season and if you are tired of the long rebuilding processes that you can experience in a normal progressive I invite you to give this a try. Thank You!
League Format: Standard WIS 24 Teams
Seasons: 1971, 1972, 1973 +
3 - 6 Round Drafts, 1 for each season.
Draft1 - 1971 season. Random order for round 1 then serpentine for rounds 2-6.
Draft2 - 1972 season. Will be in reverse order of Draft1.
Draft3 - 1973 season. Order will be inverse of Draft1, meaning those that picked in the middle of the rounds at picks 13 and 12 will pick 1st and 2nd and then reconfigured outward.
We'll do all 3 drafts simultaneously. Time slots will be 1 hour apart and we'll do 12 picks, (half a round) per day.
For the first season of the league we will use '71, '72, '73. The next season we advance to '72, '73, '74. The 3rd season will be '73, '74, '75 and so on.
When we drop a year the 6 players from that year are your Cuts and we'll have a new 6 round draft replacing them with players from the year that we are advancing to. The players from your other 2 seasons ('72 and '73) will be Keepers and remain on your team using the same 2 seasons, ('72 and '73) over again. To help eliminate tanking, the draft order will be best record first to worst record last based on final W/L Standings for the 1st round only. Rounds 2-6 will be worst/first to best/last.
The 1 downfall to this type of league is that players are only exclusive per year. That means we could have 3 versions of each player in the league at a time, each 1 using a different season. For instance, one owner could have '71 Pete Rose, another owner could have '72 Pete Rose and a third could have '73 Pete Rose. When we advance to the next season the '71 version will be a Cut and the 2 other teams will Keep their '72 and '73 versions. In the new draft someone else could take his '74 version.
Clones will not be allowed, so even though we can have 3 versions of a player in the league at a time, you can only have 1.
Your remaining 7 players can be anyone you want from the 3 years that we are using, Each of these 7 players must be under $500K. These 7 players are not considered the sole property of any team and can be used by anyone. You can replace any or all of them each season, just make sure to keep them within the 3 year timeframe we are using for the league.
