The more we have played, the better the league has gotten, which is why I think we should see 2018-19 be our most-competitive season yet.”    This is the fourth year when the league is playing a combined fall-winter season, with each team playing 12 regular-season games, prior to two weeks of playoffs.    All five teams – the defending-champion Blazers, Bullseye, MegaWhales, Minutemen and PrimeTime – are organized and run by their captains, meaning that players who want to run in the fall-winter league must get a spot from a team...
