- Season 15 is HERE! Friday night kicks things off in Atlanta with the Swarm hosting the Baltimore Vultures at 7 pm ET on Eleven Sports and For the Fans. The full schedule of dates, times and networks will be finalized and released Monday and broadcast/stat crews will be finalized Wednesday night. Throughout the season, schedule dates, times, networks, broadcast crews and stat teams will be finalized Wednesday evenings.
- Rosters have been released to teams and teams are now in the process of reporting errors and insuring rosters play through correctly. To guarantee any errors to rosters are corrected by Week 1, teams need to have reported errors before the playbook deadline. Speaking of…
- Playbooks and coach points are due into the league Monday July 13 at 11:59 p.m. CT. All playbooks will be in place before the weekend kickoff game.
- I will be making appearances on 252 ESPN Radio Greenville/New Bern, home of the Carolina Skyhawks and on Axis Live (with other league staff members) this week. Be on the look-out for that!
- Saturday night, the league held a test broadcast for it’s live look-in tech that allows you to watch the game with teammates and have live reactions on the broadcast. The results were overall positive, but we’ll be making some tweaks to the process. On the viewers side, it’s important to note that if you experience any buffering, you may fall behind other teammates in your viewing party and if you have a lot of background noise or are not listening to the game through headphones/earbuds it will create a lot of noise in the party. As the season goes along, teams and the league will share tips and tricks on how to best organize these parties the more we learn about what’s most effective.
- Due to opening week, I have limited availability for meetings, front-loaded in the beginning of the week. I am responsible for all 22 team playbooks, coach points, run/pass ratios, coin toss preferences and depth chart adjustments as necessary. With that being said, I am still available to any and all of the community at the following times:
- MON – 10:00 am-12:00 pm / 8:00-10:00 pm CT
- TUE – 5:00-6:00 pm CT
- WED – 10:00 am-12:00 pm CT
