Since those days the league has developed to having a more formalised structure but with less formalised games. As it's hard for people to make every meeting the rules were changed so that you could play a maximum of ten games against different coaches which you arrange yourself. The only problem with this is that less experienced coaches have a rough time and then tend to drop out half way through.
So for this season, I have updated the league rules to have two divisions, Premier and Championship. The Premier division has all the experienced Blood Bowl coaches using good teams whilst the Championship is comprised of less experienced coaches. To bump up the numbers in the Championship, I am letting the experienced coaches take part but only allowing them to use stunty teams (Goblin, Halfling and Ogre). I've also brought in a structured round robin format so there are no options for cherry picking the new coaches or weaker teams. I'll have to see how this works but I'm hopefully it will all go smoothly.
I am using an Undead team in the Premier division and a Goblin team in the Championship. I've created a mini-blog page to keep track of their progress through the season. You can take a look at it here : http://foulinggriffons.blogspot.co.uk
