Limited Time: BEARD Hockey Accepting ALL Applications (Reduced Price)

Post by BeardCommish »

Initial note: As commented on below, we recently fired 3 GM's and a 4th quit over collusion and flagrantly detrimental conduct issues. There is no way to spin that - it was what it was. I'd rather be open and honest than not, and while it was tough having to do that, it was 100% necessary as the alternative could have crippled the league.

We've all worked way too hard to let that happen. We're VERY PROUD of what this league is becoming and we're very happy to have an opportunity to bring a few more GM's into the fold to make it even better. Read on for the details!

Limited Window: Now accepting ALL applications for reduced-price entry into BEARD Hockey. We want everyone who has serious interest to apply so we can find some top-notch GM's for our rare vacancies. UPDATE: Candidates are coming in - two vacancies filled, a few more in the process. Don't miss out!

DETAILS:

-- $10 subscription dues for the 2021-22 season (this is $40 off the usual dues!)
-- Must have STHS experience and can make our league a priority
-- Application doesn't guarantee a spot (we want the best GM's, not just warm bodies)
-- Must be comfortable with a daily activity league and can get up to speed quickly
-- Must read important sections of our Rulebook before applying (In-Season UFA program, Finances, Free Agency, etc.)
-- If you don't like fast-paced, always-something-to-do leagues, this may not be for you!

In addition, we've done extensive work on our Rulebook and league programs over this past offseason. While future input and ideas on these programs are welcome, you must be comfortable with the core elements of this setup as it is not changing any time soon, beyond a yearly commissioner review to ensure things are running as they should be. Feel free to ask any questions you may have on your application as well.

GREAT PRIZES:

Win a Stanley Cup Championship and you'll receive the BEARD Hockey Championship Title belt. We award one every year - plus, starting this season, we're adding personalized BEARD Hockey jerseys, plaques, and more to our end-of-season prizes.

RERATES:

In BEARD Hockey, our rerates are based on BEARD Hockey statistics. This isn't just "sim rerates" - we've heavily researched and vetted our system to produce accurate ratings for our players. While it may take time, GM's are tasked with using these ratings to best deploy their teams to help develop their players to the best of their abilities. We have a full farm where GM's develop young players to eventually make their pro clubs, as well.

We do not publish specific information, formulas, or any "inside info" about our rerates. Commissioners have no advantage over GM's in this regard - we are all learning how to best apply and deploy along with our GM's (one commish busted out in Round 1 last year and the other didn't make the playoffs lol). If you enjoy a challenge and like diving into statistics and developing every aspect of your club, then this is the league for you.

AVAILABLE TEAMS

You can find rosters and other "Output" info here:

Colorado

Vancouver

We are beginning our offseason UFA process this Sunday. We plan on mirroring the 2021-22 NHL schedule as closely as possible, with regular-season games beginning in mid-October.

In closing, this isn't your typical sim league. Our group takes this seriously while having a lot of fun in the process. You won't find a better group of GM's in sim hockey, bar none. Join us - there's never been a better time. :)

Thanks all!

Somewhat interested. Concerned with how much turn over there is. Is there a reason?

We were cruising right along but had to fire 3 GM's and a 4th left due to outright collusion and conduct detrimental to the league, unfortunately. Had we let it stand, it would have done far more damage to the league than having a few vacancies to fill.

Rare to have any vacancies and when we do, they've been filled relatively quickly. We're being cautious with applications right now, as you can imagine. The subscription fee keeps things limited as it is, but we want GM's who are dedicated and believe in the league we're building. :)

Interesting. Just noticed alot of turn over in the last year. Just thought it was odd in a pay league.
