Gauging interest for a 4 vs. 4 league using only human lineman. Thinking it would work with as little as 8 coaches, any time zone allowed.

That's one. We only need 6 more. If we get enough interest we could make it a promotion relegation league.

Won't the first +STAT hero unbalance the league?

I assume there will be more than one good player, so while there might be some unbalance, I would guess not. Besides, trying to kill said stat hero would be lots of fun.

I'd test it out. Does that make 3?

That makes 5, only 3 more needed.

Then hopefully we can expand to 16 for season 2 after we have proof of concept.

As far as the format, I am thinking 1 round of round robin, a 2 team championship, and then an 8 team knockout tournament.

As we expand, the number of teams in the "championship" will increase so if we get to 16 teams it will be a 4 team knockout championship, with a 16 team knockout tournament to follow.

Sound good?

I want to make the league light on rules and regulations to concentrate more on the fun factor.

Pretty much the only rules will be a maximum of 11 players are allowed on the roster. Only human linemen will be allowed to be purchased. If you are short on players, new players must be purchased as soon as your treasury allows. And during the game, during initial setup, 3 players will be on the line of scrimmage, 1 player will be elsewhere, and then the coach places the other 7 players in the end zone, choosing either 3 on top and 4 on bottom, or 4 on top and 3 on bottom, with the end zone players not moving the whole game.

Also, thanks to everyone willing to give it a chance! Any ideas for a league name? Maybe H4?

Setting up your round robin tournament you have the following options:

From the tourney set-up screen

Setup a maximum of (0-11) players may be set up in each wide zone.
A maximum of (0-11)players may be set up on the field.
A minimum of (0-11) players must be set up on the Line of Scrimmage.

The number in brackets may or may not be as low as zero, or as high as 11. I've only tried the standard settings, but I bet you can get what you want.

Cool so we don't have to have 11 players on the field then, even better.

Have an additional coach interested, but not committed, so need 2, maybe 3 more coaches.
