THU 2/9 (12:15PM) — The last post had blank rows and therefore had errors. I was one foot out the door rushing to an appointment, so I didn’t bother double-checking. Thanks to Rady Khean for hitting me up on email and pointing it out. It’s now corrected below.
THU 2/9 (12:00PM) — Final tipoffs are below. As previously mentioned, in SF we got booted by CYO in the middle of the day at BHPY, so we had less gym time to work with. There’s a makeup weekend in A/R-SF coming up due to a rocky start there with some teams starting on 1/15, then the quirks with the 1/22 49ers and 2/5 Superbowl. So I’ve moved up that makeup weekend to this Sun 2/12.
Every other division except maybe for A/R-SJ and REC-O+ is proceeding normally as you can see from the list of byes below. In A/R-SJ, as you’ll eventually see on the roadmap that will be published hopefully by tonight, there’s a juggling of matchups which creates a bye for Monstars and a different matchup for Space Jamz (as well as a doubleheader for GBP). In REC-O+ there’s juggling that creates a bye for Dragon and a different matchup for SQ. That’s a small sampling of how roadmaps start out as a template and get changed around due to various issues. In Dream League, I’ve found it best to work with something malleable like that. The goal is to make sure everyone has 6 regular season games and try to avoid doubleheaders (GBP’s was necessitated by the fact that they switched divisions).
Also in the previous post, I accidentally left off the AL/NL Rangers at Underdogs matchup, which is now tacked onto the end of the WKRC set. I’ve also added mathematical formulas on the scheduling spreadsheet to help doublecheck that teams aren’t left off the schedule each week, so hopefully something like that won’t happen again.
We will forge ahead thru 2/19, so don’t take that weekend off. You’ll see this tonight when the roadmaps publish. Please read the previous posts so that you understand in this league, it is simply not advisable to take any vacation/byes if you intend to play every game. And if you intend to vie for the championship, this becomes especially true next month and thru April.

THU 2/9 (11:00AM) — Below is the latest and greatest version, which is now in chronological order albeit tipoffs will not publish until we’re 100% sure. Thanks to Wylie and Freddie for scheduling BCRC and WKRC. Still need to double-check for overlaps. Also, roadmaps will be published separately later tonight, so you can see where we’re going with all these matchups. In addition, Freddie and the stats crew have been busy posting not only the recaps on Twitter, but also the actual game stats. We’ll link to those by tomorrow night, too. Thanks for your ongoing patience and remember, while we’re halfway into the regular season, with Dream League’s marathon double-elimination playoff format, we’re only about 1/4th of the way through the entire season.
Read the previous posts where I talk about not assuming you’ll have any byes. Btw, we’re planning to forge ahead and make 2/19 a regular game weekend…
WED 2/8 (3:15PM) — I know you guys are all still flying blind without roadmaps posted, but here are the matchups for 2/12. In SF, we are bumped out of BHPY in mid-afternoon due to CYO playoffs. Because of this, I swapped out a makeup weekend for A/R-SF such that only four teams in that division are playing. Sorry, but you probably wouldn’t be playing anyways due to CYO’s stranglehold on BHPY and it goes without saying that gyms in SF are nearly impossible to get these days.
Below is NOT in chronological order. You can see that it’s mainly a core dump, division by division.
The rest of the schedule of matchups is still subject to any wrenches thrown at me from left field, namely the MSR page which I haven’t had the time to check yet.
So, obviously, more info is coming. If you’re listed as a bye team, I’d actually wait until tomorrow if you could to see that it’s official. If you absolutely need to make it official, then email me, but know that the entire schedule is interdependent on the demands of other teams as well and, as I wrote in the email announcement, you should be getting into the mindset that you never have byes and if you do get a bye, you treat that as an unexpected bonus in terms of free time off.
