    I feel like the season needs to be longer. Three weeks is a very short regular season. I know this has been the traditional way but I think we need to think about the health of the zone. We all know that the zone dies when there is no league going on. Considering how long it took for this league to get started, I think it'd be in the best interest of everyone to have a 6 week regular season. This would have each team play each other twice and also allow more time for people who have returned to sign up for FA. I'm currently running the eg league and our regular season is 7 weeks long and makes for a better experience. Also, we have a preseason week on top of that whereas there is none here. This league will be here and gone in a blink of an eye if it is so short.

    We thought about it, I would have preferred a bit longer season. However summer gets too close, in June most people start their summer holidays and around that time it's harder for players to show up. The empty slot on the weekend before our regular season starts is easter weekend - planning to not have any games there.

    It took a bit long to get this started so we're not having as long season as preferable.
