    I have discussed a potential Diamond Dynasty league in The Show with @Take Notes 011 and @mmorgan184 a few different times in the CLB shoutbox, and I wanted to gauge interest from people before we took discussions any further.

    I had suggested that we do a relatively casual league/event where we would do a fantasy draft of all Diamond Dynasty players - Live Series, Flashbacks, and Legends all included. We would probably put some sort of a limitation on the number of Diamonds allowed on rosters. We could also do further events similar to the events that are done in the game where there are certain themes to lineup choices (which would likely not be done with a fantasy draft).

    We could do a larger league with the fantasy draft where we maybe have 2-3 home and home series for each opponent and then play a tournament seeded by the standings. If we were doing more of an event idea, we could do a single home and home series per opponent - or we could do a single game per opponent for the first fantasy draft and see if we want to start another fantasy draft or do events (if we have the interest to continue).

    I'd like to see how many guys we have interested in doing this before we see if it's worth it to do any further planning. I know that we've got Madden coming out in late August, so if we're going to do something with The Show on the site, now would be the time to get it started. I'd hope to have 8+ guys interested so that we could have a tournament at the end of the events, but even a smaller group of 6 or so could have a 4-team tournament at the end.

    I'm tagging @CLB right now, but I also now that @crillah plays some Diamond Dynasty. If you know of anyone else that plays, tag them here.

    Thanks!

    I'd give this a whirl. I know @Johnson plays The Show but I don't think he messes with DD at all
