    Indeed, how do you round up a team of 100 buddies to play against another
    team of yet another 100 buddies. Surely the only places where such games
    flourish are big cities as rural villages simply do not have that many
    that could qualify as players, i.e. those that have the right size, age and

    The required size of the teams is simply too big to pull some kind of
    league off the ground.
