Either has the benefit of getting more money to the field owner buy making the season a little longer.

Of the two I would like to see another Round-Robin, simply because every team plays every other team, and then use single elimination for tie-breakers.

Would that be a bit more palatable to you'se guys?
I like that better but then we come to another question. Say I field a team - myself and two other players who wanted to come for the first round.

Define team. That is when I show up with myself and two other players for the second round are we still the same team? Does a team need 3/3, 2/3, 1/3 players to be considered the same team?

What if I go and play with a couple new players and get third or fourth and the next time I show up with an extremely good player? In a three man one extremely good player can carry a team.
