Having a quick scour of other leagues and also reacting to comments about how much managers enjoy or don't enjoy predicting certain divisions I am considering making a change to the games that are predicted each week.

At present we have each division on rotation with 4 maximum cup games added on (less when less than 4 cup games being played) so top flight week 1, Division 1 on week 2 etc then back to the beginning. Some managers have said they would rather just focus on the top division due to lack of teams/interest lower down and/or the randomness of line ups in the lower divisions with formations and team player shortages resulting in more strange scorelines.

The other option is to pick 2 fixtures from each division each week plus a maximum of 2 cup games (so all managers know what games are going to be selected it would be the first two fixtures in each division on week 1, fixtures 3 and 4 from each division on week 2 etc).

What I don't want is to have any changes put any current participants off of playing (be great to have more take part but not at the expense of those who already make an effort).

I have a poll below and if any managers would definitely stop playing under any of the options listed below please comment in the thread as I don't want to alienate anyone and likewise anyone who would be encouraged to play who doesn't if one of these options is used please also comment below.

If anyone can think of an option not listed also comment as there may well be a better option that I haven't thought of.

Thanks :D

So, 4 votes and no comments. Seems I should have put a "don't care just go away" option :lol:

I voted for the current system. I like the fact that it is different from all the other prediction competitions because you rotate the divisions.

Ta for the input.

I deliberately haven't voted and as we have 7 votes I would say that probably covers most if not all of the 8 who currently play and we have no clear consensus with two options getting 3 votes (the current version and 2 from each division each week) with one other having one vote (2 if I voted).

So clearly not something that makes any sense to change with nothing else proving vastly more appealing.

Thanks all for voting, and Mark for commenting (ironically on a week he doesn't get his pred 8 selections in on the current comp :lol: ), it seems the current version will stay as it is.
