Hey ladies, now that I’m no longer a Ranger and @Bo-Dangles10 isn’t suppressing my media rights, I have decided I’ll put out a weekly power rankings which highlights actual standings week-by-week along with big news from around the league (Trades, bans and trash talk). For the first edition I went over each roster now that they’re mostly completed and gave them a letter grade based on previous season winning percentages. Even though theres been a few of these, I figured theres no harm in continuing to stir the pot. Enjoy the rankings and following Week 1, we’ll re-evaluate to see how wrong I was. EASTERN METRO 1.
