The issue concerning our schedule has been rehashed so many times on our board, that it's really not worth even bringing up again. Suffice it to say, it was impossible to make a "balanced" schedule with the dates we were given from some teams' arenas. Many of our teams play in hockey arenas and couldn't get good March dates as an example.
Going forward, we've already asked teams to begin securing as many weekend dates as possible for '08 so we have more to work with when it comes time to make the schedule for next season.[/quote]
I don't agree with those guys.
You did the right schedule format. Your other fellow indoor leagues recruit locally and have geographical divisions for playing most of their games against each other. But the CIFL for the second straight year had lopsided scores. That's why I think the game system bears part of the problem by allowing teams with a slight talent level to blowout their lesser opponent.
It's your dime. Investigate this issue in the offseason. The point is if you blow off your fans (former fans) suggestions and the league runs into this same problem in 2008, don't blame anyone else except those of you in charge that allowed your pride to get in the way of constructive criticism.
Research the issue. Prove it to yourself you got things under control.
If you are simply looking for new teams to join the league using the same 2007 rulebook, and without any plans to put age/experience limits on your rosters as a competitive cap because your game system is extremely sensitive to talent differences, you will fail in the same way you failed this year.
Remember it's your dime.
I want to say Good Luck but I don't really believe in that. Luck has very little to do with one's success.
That's about all I can say and will say. Back to the CFL until college and the NFL begin play.

That's funny. My folks live in Marion. Next time I go down there I might do some PI work.
