    Conference / Division Renaming

    This league has roots as a mentor league. The conferences and divisions were named for the mentors within each division.

    No disrespect to the founders of this league (none of whom are still with us), but proposing renaming the conferences and divisions to honor the franchises who have won the most games within their respective divisions over the last 10 seasons. These names would be re-evaluated every ten seasons, and updated as appropriate. Proposal is to keep in the theme of the original monikers. Thoughts?

    (Proposed conference names are just something to start the conversation, and of course not intended to offend anyone!)

    Current:

    Jar O' Jelly conference
    andujar division
    jellyinsd division

    Rent Koller 4 Free! conference
    rentforfree2790 division
    jkoller division


    Proposed:

    Bin O' New Halls conference
    rwnewhall division (Adirondack Admirals with 870 wins)
    gsabino division (Binopolis Classic Sox with 945 wins)

    B's & Bart's Boys conference
    bartoloboi division (Pleasant Gap Dreadnoughts with 939 wins)
    benmc division (Myrtle Beach Mermen with 868 wins)

    Definitely. Get rid of those bums.

    We are all still alive.

    Stop by the classic league forum and say hey some time.

    I agree that it is time for a change. There are very few owners left from when the league started and even though I am one of them, I am not attached to the names. I think rwnewhall's idea is good one...the idea of getting the conference partially named after yourself for 10 seasons could provide incentive to build and keep the league competitive.
