What's up fellow III.15 league mates! After seeing two teams promote from this prestigious league last season, as well as watching five teams demote to D.IV like the swine they are, a slew of new cast members have entered the island. Best of luck this season!

It will be weird in the big 8 if we continue to have 3 inactive coaches. Not much of a fight to make the playoffs.

also on a side note, is anyone else shocked that Buzzerbeater allows a team name, like 80Eights?

I’m assuming the team name is a poke at the sexual position used in Requiem For A Dream. I’m getting old, but it’s really the only time I’ve ever heard about that.

Huh, okay. 88 is also a common dog whistle for racial supremecists. H being the 8th letter of the alphabet, its commonly a veiled reference to Heil Hitler.

Ahh. Forgot about that one. And also the group of 88 professors that defended the Duke University Lacrosse team as well. Knowing the guys I’ve talked to on here for years, I just assumed it referenced the sexual position called 88. It’s a melting pot in BB, as it should be. If it’s a racial team name with racial intentions, it needs to be changed.

Eighty-eights could also be in reference to the genus of butterflies, the keys on a piano, or the abbreviation for hugs and kisses but you're most likely right. Probably hard to enforce a change of team name when it can stand for other things as well, but it definitely doesn't seem like the best name.

Used my connections to get the team name removed. 😁

Nice one! I’m hoping it wasn’t bad intentions, but if it can be taken offensively, it was best to change it anyway.
