I'd be ok with 3 or 4 teams.  I'd recommend that they each have a different cap and the draft league has a cap of $47M or lower.  Maybe a $10 GC and reward the top 4 owners would work as well.

Let's talk about this WhatIfs matching policy.  They will only do if we buy 5 or 6 teams?  WTF?  These are the only people keeping the crappy site alive.  If they had a brain in their head they would realize that this should be an annual reward for the best owners and invite them to participate and give out prizes.  That would inspire people to play.  Instead they make us do all the work, pay of teams and maybe we get a prize.  Hilarious. 

If anyone has a good connection with the people running this, I certainly don't, they should have a serious discussion about keeping the die hards and making exciting goals for new owners.  Just my two cents.

I'm unsure of the matching, so you would want to check.  I know that they wouldn't match our progressive league prize unless it went 5 seasons.

I would love to do this --- hope my ranking is high enough.

I would join

I think it makes sense to call out the top 25.  Most won't risk their overrated status but maybe some will try it.

I never took the BOWIS plunge - 6 teams was too much.  But I might be in at 3-4 teams.

All3 is right on all points. I'm in for 4 teams - try to get WIS to really reward this!! I think we should also have a minimum owner ranking at first.
What do you have in mind for a minimum owner ranking?

Bear in mind that some of the better, more experienced users (I'm not necessarily including myself in that group) are committed to progressive leagues in which their teams strategically suck for a few seasons so as to rise to meteoric heights later, so a random snapshot of owner rating may be deceiving.

I'd play if it was 4 teams max.

Long & tall - fair point.  I'll let you set the limit as you are more familiar with theme league owners.  I was thinking 4500 but that may be too extreme.  Wouldn't it be really interesting if there was a true ranking and we could have a real BOWIS tourney w/ the best owners every year?  Just a wet dream.

I guess that excludes me
