of the League
2000... M. Jess Jackson
unsolicitied email arrived at NIBL intergalactic
headquarters last weekend, and I had to post it
(it's real, I swear).
This may be the
funnest shit I've ever read.
I have studied your league intently
and I have found many things that are done well...I will
not enumerate them; however, I thought that I would
mention those aspects of the league that seemed less
- the playoff format is
absurd. the regular season must end
earlier. this stuff about re-drafting for
the playoffs and losing half your team DURING the
NBA playoffs is monumentally dumb. just
admit that it was a poor system and end the
season in the middle of April.
- the scores. OK, I know,
for you guys it's ok that they are 312-189, but
not to the general public....the scores look
bizarre and unpleasant...the original plan of
splitting scores was a GOOD IDEA....go back to it
- the team names. They
need work. First of all, the league looks
dumb when you allow people to have teams in
cities of such disparate sizes and locations with
such idiotic names....You basically should have
either, all Chicago area names, or names derived
from US cities, or International names, but not
the random assortment that you have now.
The best team names are: West Chicago Women (go
back to THAT name), Aruba Thong, and Capital City
Tools isnt bad...the rest of the names are not
Otherwise, the league is in good

handle on the rules than Johnny Rai and I do, eh.
