I like the idea of having the top tiered league draft teams in both formats, but I'll also have to side with drafting different teams for each as well. I think trying to come up with a team that will do reasonably well in both formats will just water down the competition as a whole, while keeping them separate will truly portray a manager's skill in each of the respective formats.

Another, long alternative.

Year 1, all H2H
Year 2, no upper league, all Roto
Year 3, Top 6 from H2H league, and top 6 from roto league form champion league, coin flip decides format here (maybe even go points ;-) ).

that would be fair and work, but i think it would take too long and we'd lose interest, maybe its just me though

That would take too long. I think we have to establish a top tier after the first year or people will lose interest.

Agree with above, we don't want to lose members.

Sorry to say, but I hate the idea of the top teams having 2 leagues because most people here are in quite a few leagues already. Having 2 teams for this contest will really deter people who have other commitments. For those of you with only a team or two, this may sound like a great idea, but I already have commitments made to 4 other leagues. I honestly don't think I will possibly be able to do this if I have to be in 2 leagues for this contest.

Well this isn't any other league DD. We're making this league to be different and much more challenging, moreso than others. So it will have to take more from a manager and a test of your abilities to be crowned the champion. The path isn't supposed to be easy. Two leagues with two different formats is a true test of ability.

I am not saying that it isn't, but you are making this difficult to join for longtime fantasy basketballers who are currently involved in many other leagues. Hey man sorry if I spoke up, I forgot this was your league and you make all the decisions.

We're discussing leaving that decision open to the champion league managers by vote in a year when the decision applies. :-)
