Blood Bowl

I don't know who is playing in Morgan's new Blood Bowl league, but I'd be interested to hear what you think of this.
It's a schedule for a Blood Bowl league with 6 players each using 2 teams.
The biggest benefit of using a strict schedule like this is that you don't get a disparity between teams that haven't played the right number of games.
The biggest flaw is that the league would be held up if players hadn't completed their games.
I, personally, think it's worth it.

The schedule, as is, is quite rigidly structured.
The benefit of the current structure is that 2 players can play 4 games in a row against each other without having to wait for any other games to finish.
This means that a significant chunk of the tourney can be completed every time two players have time spare.
The down-side is that it could be a bit boring, repetitive, and perhaps even unfair to play the same player 4 times in a row.
Luckily, if players don't like this tourney structure, the order of the weeks can be randomised.

Also, these schedules are very easy to make, so I can certainly put one together for a different number of players.
I'll also point out that a major benefit of each player playing with two teams is that the tourney will always have an even number of teams.
This is vital, considering that, in Blood Bowl, a team missing a match because of a bye can throw a massive spanner in the works.

Anyway, if you're interested, check it out.

Sample Blood Bowl Schedule for 6 players with 12 teams

Each player controls two teams, represented by a capital and corresponding lower case letter.
Every team plays every other team apart from those controlled by the same player (this is represented by a bye round).
