Another person mentioned this idea, and I voted for it. But it needs to be mentioned again! We need double header leagues! For those who are unfamiliar, a double header league means you play 2 head to head matchups each week.
Playing 2 teams each week provides many advantages. The first being that it provides a better balance between head to head and overall points. It's a ****** feeling when you have the 2nd highest score in the league, only to lose to the highest scoring team. With double-headers, at least you would pick up 1 win in this situation, and the week isn't a total loss. For the past 3 years in our league the team with either the most or 2nd most points has missed out on the playoffs. I know people will say we could just switch to overall points rather than head to head, but it's not as fun just counting points compared to playing head to head against your buddy. Instead of playing 13 games, each team is now playing 26 games, which will help the stronger teams get in the playoffs and weed out the lucky ones who skate by each week.
2nd, it provides you with more players to watch each week! You will now be concerned with 3 teams rather than just 2, increasing the likelihood you have a reason to watch the games on Thursday or Monday nights.
Please give us double-header leagues!!!
