Red conference could have the Bull and Rover divisions, and Blue conference could have the Ball and Moon divisions.

i think that's a pretty cool idea. Would be fun at least coming up with the names. :-)

im with terps on this one.

the names are generic enough you dont need to change them. every year, they are creative, and they arent too similar that they would be confusing.

ala all STDs or all old coaches or all old players ('now was i in the bill walsh division or the jimmy johnson divison.???')

Sanders, Faulk, Davis, Smith


This right here is the perfect idea. Seeing most of FF is running back heavy what better than former stud backs. ;-D

Just some input here, in our 12 teams keeper league we have three divisions only (no conferences).

Our divisions are:

Jose Cuervo
Jim Beam
Johnny Walker

Each year the division champ from each division of my money league gets to rename the division for the following year.... Last year the division winners were The Columbine High School Rifle Team and the Branch Dividian Barbequers Association, so I'm anxious to see what our divisions are called next year.....

Yes, that league is populated by sick bastards.... All the names are somewhat sick like that..... With guys changing their names to one-up eachother every year..... I've been considering changing my team name (currently The Jim Jones Kool-Aid Brigade) to the Neverland Valley Boy Scouts for 2006....
