A) That sucks. I was much more interested in 8 man when they had one championship. It's watered down with 2 right now.
B) That's weird. Everyone gets a poll per Trophy except 8 man? Makes no sense.

That's a strange statement. Was the 11 man playoffs more interesting when it was 4 Divisions?

Its actually a statement with a lot of logic behind it.

There are not enough teams to justify 2 Championships the last two seasons in 8 man. 8 Man plays one less round of the playoffs because of it. Felt incomplete both years to me. Like two half brackets each get their own trophy. Stupid IMO.


That said, 11 man is also watered down right now with the loss of the teams going to 8 man.


Look at how many teams there were 10 years ago. 8 Championships for football. Look at how many teams there are right now. 10 Championships for football. Its watered down.

Should be 7 Eleven Man championships and one 8 Man championship. My opinion.
