Spiders and Owls and Mammoths and Bears, OH MY!

This will come as a surprise to some and to others, well they found out 15 seconds after it was decided. 
 

A couple seasons ago we turned Sacramento and Grand Rapids into BOT only teams with the goal of making it easier on ADs in terms of recruiting and filling their teams with active players. 

 

The hope was to eventually fill out these 10 teams and bring back the two BOT teams. Obviously this has not happened and we will be making further changes going forward. 

 

Starting in Season 31, Sacramento and Grand Rapids will be removed from play completely. Joining them will be Anchorage and Lincoln. 

 

A lack of recruits altogether and a vast difference in actives from team to team has led to this as we look to achieve more balanced competition from top to bottom. 

 

With 3 teams from one division and 1 from the other being removed, this will lead to some division realignment and schedule changes. Those will be announced later on. 

 

Also for those actives on both Anchorage and Lincoln, there will be a legal tampering and recruiting period that will start immediately. These players will finish out their seasons with their current teams and can’t officially commit to new teams till the offseason as usual 

 

 

Any other questions or concerns can be directed to me or the other BOD members as well. 

 

Thank you

To add to this, we want to ensure that all active users on these teams find new homes that they can be happy with. So @23Legendary @ChefCook33 @saladani @DaniK @Theory @soneuser @Slick @Jbear @Moon_50 @Advantage and anyone else I missed - if you haven't heard from at least a couple ADs by the end of today, please let me know, and we'll get you taken care of!

Serious question: if at some point down the line there were a possibility to reproduce the Grand Rapids Growlers name and brand in a different sim league, who would I have to ask for permission?

 

It is/was one of my very favorite team names and logos in any sim league, I’d love to see it come back somehow, and if not here then perhaps elsewhere.

Truthfully, I doubt it's something you'd be allowed to use elsewhere since the EFL owns the rights to the logo. If the ECFA was approaching a state where more teams would be viable, Grand Rapids could be one of the first teams to come back because despite it being one of the worst teams in the league's history, it did have a somewhat strong following.

 

Best way to bring it back would be to get on that recruiting grind :P
