Hello all, in the coming few weeks there's going to be a lot of things needed to be situated regarding the 7th season of our Bloody Elbow Civil War. As decided on by captains in season 6, this next War will be the first to feature a keeper league. Up to 5 players on each season 6 team have the option to be chosen by their captain for the next one, depending on the captain's preference as well as whether the player wants to stay or enter free agency (the draft). For each player kept, that captain will lose a draft pick starting with their first round pick. However, before we get down to all of that, we need a final list of the 12 captains who are ready to face off for the glory of the prestigious 7th BECW Grand Prix Championship.
Seven captains have already chosen to return:
- Sugel Mendoza
- Andy Davis
- Josh Hall
- Violent Newt
We ask that these captains make sure to keep an eye on their email and fanposts for information in the near future regarding the next steps for preparing next season. Our Bovine Public has already stepped up and taken the reigns of ScorecardOTN's squad so that makes 8 team captains decided thus far.
Four captains, JDH, Andy Anderson, Ron Swanson, and lanky6 have decided to bow out of captaining next season, so this is the important part. Any current member of these squads willing to take over the team as captain should respond immediately in the comments of this fanpost. You'll be responsible for picking up to 5 players to return to the team for season 7, and drafting the remaining members of your squad. If no one wants the challenge of picking up the pieces and rebuilding, the team will be completely gutted and any returning players will have to enter the draft. You have until this fanpost has ran its course to decide, so think quickly and choose wisely.
A few notes to add:
1. With pretty much unanimous support, the season's winner will be allowed to keep their whole team (with the exception of those players who choose not to return for Season 7, in which case those teams will get draft picks for the later rounds of the draft).
2. The currently captain-less teams for Season 7 are as follows(assuming everyone returns):
Hands of the Judges
UK MMA MAN
Joe Rogan's Smoking Bong
Brad One Punch Wolf Picketts
John Danaher's Hair
New players... Make an account on mmaplayground.com as close to your BE user name as possible immediately, and make complete picks for the next 3 UFC cards in order to be eligible for the coming season. This is to ensure you won't bail on your team throughout the upcoming season. Sign-ups for new players will happen at a later date, so you'll need to follow the instructions at that point as well, but making these picks prior to the start of BECW7 will be a required prerequisite.
