• BBS Sports League Upgrades

    Upcoming changes to the league next season will allow for team names. The current User/Sysop name method will simply resolve to the owner label. Example:
    -----------------------------------------
    Team Owner Home
    ------ ----- -----------
    Sharks Alias somebbs.org -----------------------------------------

    This method expands and creates several bbs opportunities such as: ------------------------------------------------------------------
    An identifiable team name. (logo/graphics)
    BBS Advertisements (Tag Lines/T-shirts, etc.)
    Team Legacy (BBS ads, bulletins, Member since 2XXX) ------------------------------------------------------------------

    These are just some of the possibilities and/or improvements i believe this change will bring about for our league. All changes would be inacted immediately and could be used retroactively for your use. Statistics from previous seasons would now reflect your team name.

    For obvious reasons, your team name cannot coincide with the real name of an NFL team. In other words, no Patriots, Bears, Cowboys, etc..

    While naming your team (within these guidelines) is totally up to you, i highly recommend keeping the name inline with NFL examples.
    For example:
    -----------------------
    "The Bay City Rockers"
    -----------------------
    You need to be comfortable with everyone referring to you both in conversations and statistics as, "Rockers". Refer to NFL merchandise as a good guide to use.

    So, if your considering joining the league and playing next season, think about what name you'll be using and get it in to me ASAP. Once names are issued and established their final unless and otherwise that player/team is a no-show come the signup deadline. If your a current league member and already know what your team name will be, let me know and i'll go ahead and make the change retroactive on my side.

    I'll post and keep a bulletin on my system of established names and when they were commisioned/decommissioned for league use.

    Thanks everyone and happy naming!
