Who will win the Heisman?
Statistically, Griffin III should be a shoe-in.

Richardson would be the #2, but he isn't even in the top 5 in rushing this season.

Sitter?
I need a sitter. I'm in two games, both of them at least 1 and a half days per phase.

I apologize to the people I am playing against. Real life has become too hectic for me to continue to play here.

Disturbing trend
I'm playing in a few anon games (well, more than a few), and I've noticed that the game has changed over the years. It got better for a long time, then towards the end if this year, something has happened that has taken some fun away.

Personally, I like the change. Divisions are meaningless right now. This should make some serious rivalries. I'm just worried that they're not going to go far enough. I'd like the schedule to be heavily weighted to playing inter-division games.

Personally, I say you switch the Pens and Flyers with the Florida teams but you don't want to break up the Pens/Caps rivalry. Also, the Florida/NE conference can be called the snowbird division which is pretty funny.

I think the idea is to have 4 teams from each conference make the playoffs. There may be some debate over it because it gives the 7 team conference a leg up.

1 solution would be to expand to Markham and Quebec...

I agree about naming the Conferences after people. I miss the Campbell Conf. and the Smythe division. Keeping the 2 Florida teams together in the same division would build rivalry, but matching them with the north??????? Atlanta and Dallas seem a better match.

long time no see Czech. I know your motto is points don't matter, but happy 13k
Yonni (433 D)

"but matching them with the north???"

Canadian retirees need something to do in Florida. I was in Florida a couple of years ago and went to a Panthers/Habs game. It was essentially a home game for the Habs. You could actually hear the anthem being sung in French.

The issue is that there aren't two team to take out of the other conference. You need the NY and PA teams together and you don't want to break up Pens/Caps.

QC can just join Toronto's conference when Phoenix moves there. It just switches the 7/8 team conferences.

This will also make the playoffs awesome. The first two rounds will be inter-division before the teams are reseeded based on regular season standings. Fantastic rivalries will be made.

Name the conferences Gretzky, Orr, Howe, Lemieux...?

One played in each of the conferences.

I like the idea of a east/west conference and two divisions within the conference. I know the NHL wants 4 divisions, but I miss the way it was when I was younger. The east/west would be named after people who weren't players and the divisions could be named after players. The fans would get to choose the players names that would represent the divisions, kind of like the all-star voting system for baseball, and the owners would get to vote on the conference names.

"I miss the Campbell Conf. and the Smythe division."

Agreed...but we all know the Norris was the best division in hockey. ;) My favorite is when Chris Berman refers to the NFC North as the Norris. Awesome.

But 'cmon. Just picture 6 Habs/Bruins or Caps/Pens or Hawks/Wings games a year... and then they meet in the playoffs... and then it happens again the following year!

No Messaging...?
I have noticed that there tend to be a lot of games that have only public messaging or no messaging at all... I was wondering why people would even play this type of variation in the first place. it seems to me to be equal to playing a game of poker with only half a deck of cards...

can someone explain the appeal to me please?

I am aware, that most of the best players communicate actively and frequently with everyone on the map, no matter seemingly irrelevant or outright foe. I have some questions for you:
1. What do you discuss with the countries you are fighting?
2. What do you discuss with countries on the other side of the map?
