Forming new league
- I am forming a new league using the 4.0 APBA program and the great
2000-2001 Disk. My premise is to have 16 managers in 2 divisions and
play a 72 game season. You would play your division teams 8 times and
the other division teams twice. The roster would be 36 men with a 20
man starting lineup.
Each member would pick their favorite team and we would then have a
dispersal draft of the rest of the league. The draft would be a
serpentine draft after each team cut down to 18 from their original
franchise. It would be a keeper league but there would be no salary
Each member would play the home games and be responsible to send in
all necessary files with results from home games and lines for away
With this premise, we would have a league where stats would be
somewhat skewed as we would be using the best of the player pool.
To simulate free agency, we will use the following rules:
Age is determined at the start of the 2000 season:
Any player over 35 is signed to a two year contract
Any player over 30 is signed to a 4 year contract
Any player over 25 is signed to a 8 year contract
Any player under 25 is signed to a 10 year contract
When player contracts are up, they go to the free agent pool and are
eligible for drafting the next year.
I am open to any and all ideas. If you have any interest, please
contact Dave Elkin at davidmelkin@.... I also would be interested
in recruiting one person to serve as co-commisioner to help the
league get off the ground.
