Proposal for future lineup assassinations.

I'll keep this brief. I think they should be done by division. When you're doing your regular season rankings, you're ranking every team within their own division, so why not have separate threads for each division as well? This will keep the discussion more focused to the specific teams in those divisions, and should shift the discussion more towards why each team is better than the other teams in their own division. A strong team in one division might be a bad matchup for teams in another division.. I don't think there is enough discussion about this at all, prior to playoffs. It would also help keep things organized, instead of having a giant, cluttered mess in one thread.

I like the idea, saves a lot of effort finding posts in the sole thread, and makes it easier to vote.

Agreed. This would just lead to even more intense lobbying for the poster's favorite teams. Listing them altogether helps slightly relieve each poster lobbying for their personal regular season divisional rankings.

I'm not just indifferent because i don't care, it's mostly because this fixes a "problem" that I don't think anyone really realized was a problem until now, if at all.

Well, if you guys are interested in how this works, I'm going to do it this way at the LC ATD. The BIGGEST thing that this would address, IMO, would be the huge clutter of posts in one thread. If the posts were focused more towards the teams in specific divisions, I think you could also get more meaningful discussion, rather than "lol my team's the best here's why".

good idea, all rule changes should be tested in the minors first
