The wait-list and league rosters threads have been updated. ;-D As to the tie between Thrill and bokzg, we can probably just wait until the season nears so we have a more definitive idea of who's in and out. Last year we had like 2 or 3 guys from the Octagon replaced I think.

Congrats to Geodbear and to all of the other managers that will be continuing on.

Losing Yao really destroyed my hopes, not to mention Kmart2 and Manu sitting quite a bit during the last week of the season. I'm definitely looking forward to next year and making my way back into the Champions League. Hopefully I won't get the exact same pick in both leagues again so I can have more variety among my teams!

Congrats again to everyone that participated, it's been a great year. Thanks also to Rounders and all of the others that made this league possible.

That was a very tough season, not only was the battle for first close but it was also a real fight to finish in the top 6. I was reasonably happy with my HTH team as my top picks did reasonably well and I got a late bargain or two but my roto team was a bit of a disaster from the start after losing Arenas and then making a trade that ended up being downright awful. I managed to pick up quite a few points in some close cats in the last few weeks and squeeze into the league again next year so I live to fight another day. I really liked Geodbear's roto strategy this year, I think it caught some of us off guard but by then he already had the key pieces in place. I wonder if next year we'll see a few more unconventional strategies?
Look forward to playing against you all again next season ;-D

Here's the rule:
2.3 The Champions League will be required to play a minimum of one mandatory league, either H2H or rotisserie, and will have the option, upon the vote of 9 of 12 managers, to establish and play a second league of the opposite format, the results of which shall have equal weight as the mandatory league in determining Champions League final results. The Champions League mandatory format will be determined randomly each year, as follows: the format will be H2H if the Western Conference representative wins Game 3 of the prior season's NBA Championship series and rotisserie if the Eastern Conference representative wins Game 3.

If a Champions League elects to play a single league, the winner of that year's league shall have the right to use "Champions League Winner" in his Cafe signature. If a Champions League elects to use the dual H2H-Roto format, that year's league shall be referred to as "The FBC Octagon" and the winner may use "FBC Octagon Champion" in his Cafe signature.

So, its either a "Champions League" with a single format or its the "FBC Octagon" dual league format.
