can some one break down the divisions for me?
Seven Man will now be a locked league with two divisions of 9 teams. It is essentially like Platinum - but you pay your entrance fee in payments over the winter with 3 dates for payments. You play 8 games at each of the first 4 events - for wins & losses. Top 4 teams from each "conference" will qualify to play in the Championship Event (based on your record for year) 7 Man is now an "open" division - but with a limit on the number of Pro / Semi Pro players (2 allowed per roster)
NEXL is a locked league - 9 teams - same thing as 7 man - teams pay a franchise fee in 3 payments over the winter. It will be run Millennium style - in matches with the top 4 teams after 4th event moving on to championship event. Something that was overlooked in the little book it seems is - roster allowances - i think we said 1 semi pro / pro player per roster (as you only field 5) but I will confirm that asap.
5 Man will now have 2 divisions - they are NOT locked - meaning teams can play in as many or as few as they like. There will be a D2/ D3 5 Man division (allowing 1 D1 player per roster) and a D4/D5 division that allows 1 D3 player per roster. Those divisions as well as the 3 man divisions will work the same way things do now - registration deadlines and such.
And - 3 man will be put back with the Sr series. Two divisions - same Beginner and Rookie divisions. Beginner like at the BONE event - will be a limited paint division with one entrance fee covering entrance and all paint.
If you are still confused let me know
