    So at this point, I'm assuming that we're down 3 teams.

    Fresno
    Milwaukee
    Richmond (?)

    Any thoughts on how to proceed?

    Kill Fresno and Milwaukee, keep Richmond on Otto. Disperse the 2 dead teams.

    Restructure to two 15 team leagues, 3 divisions each, division winners + 2 wildcards in playoffs for each league, two wildcards play 1st round, giving division winners all a bye.

    We made these changes in part to attract new owners, so go forth and attract new owners.

    I kinda like this idea.

    I have tried and will continue to try. As I've said, getting owners at all for a normal league is extremely difficult. Getting them for our old setup was impossible.

    32 teams is too much.


    Smaller league, you'll have the teams more consistently filled.

    It's very symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing.

    Update:

    I'll put out a schedule this week and we'll get going. I'm trying to recruit, so we'll hold off on contraction.

    The problem is: we're on an old version of OOTP. Few people want to play v17.

    Once we upgrade to v19, we may be able to fill back up.
