the league office moved to California and for the first time, there
was a real threat of the Church of the Oblongball collapsing from
outside forces. With the great support of world-class team owners, we
found a way to persevere, "and the rest is history." And that's what
this league is all about: creating historic seasons--and 2010 fits
neatly on that shelf.
the new challenges of proximity, draft day returned to the Skype
conference call. Never a preferred option, but it gets the job done. Some of the Yankee teams gathered together for the fun. One
of these teams, The Fightin' Plankton, started off the draft by
selecting, WR Greg Jennings. Alas, in just a few short months, the
Plankton needed more than Jennings as they felt short of making the playoffs.
league rules are always evolving and some interesting twists were
added in 2010. First, the addition of the "Wildcat" formation, where
you can substitute your QB for an extra HB. Season trades were
increased to five, at the expense of unlimited preseason trades
(unfortunately, the trade log has been lost for this season). Finally,
the FB position was bolstered by gaining one point for every 100 yards of
team rushing. The Wildcat play caused much discussion during the year.
The William Tecumseh Sherman Memorial Football Team
entered the season as the reigning champ, and it quickly became
clear they had no intention of giving it up. They dominated the Yankee
division, leaving no hope for any other team. The Armadillos came out
on top of the Rebel division, but had their Superbowl dreams crushed
by the Spanish Fly Inquisition in Week 16. No matter, The William
Tecumseh Memorial Football Team was the team of destiny, once again.
