Why favorite team leagues don't fill


Why favorite team leagues don't fill

I am sure that most of us have noticed that it takes soooooo long for favorite teams to fill. I believe that the culprit is the rule that states that a player can only use a franchise four times in an entire year. As a result, once a player has run out of favorite teams, he stops using favorite team leagues and the overall result is that the leagues do not fill. My compromise suggestion is to allow no more than three franchise teams that are active at the same time so that over a one year period, you could only use the same franchise 12 times in a year instead of the current 4 times a year. Any comments regarding this idea?

I'm not getting what you are meaning. Can you be more specific please?

The actual rule is that you cannot use the same team in more than 4 leagues AT THE SAME TIME. This rule could also be called the "LARRYGREENBAUM Phillies Rule" ;-)

It does inspire a chuckle coming from one of the guys who inspired the rule. Lol

Re: Why favorite team leagues don't

I have tried to use the same franchise three times during the same time period and the SIM won't let me, so it appears that you can use the same franchise only four times a year, not that you can use the same franchise four times during the same time period. Meanwhile it still takes a very long time for favorite teams to fill and it looks like I will be using the other eight franchises that I have won titles with as well as some other more challenging franchises.

I have 3 Cardinal teams currently playing - I just joined another Fav League and entered the Cardinals and it was accepted. I'm not sure why you're having a problem - contact Guy.
