SEA + LAKE anagrams to an OWL16 seven. CSW2015 is the same.

AM + RADIO forms an OLW16 (or CSW2015) seven.

MANAGES has one OWL16 anagram and two CSW2015 anagrams.
MENAGES has one OWL16 anagram, and CSW2015 is the same.

There are four words of the form: MA.A.A
When a suffix S is added, there are three words of the form: MA.A.AS
One of those sevens has no anagrams, one has one anagram, and the
other has two anagrams.

OFFSIDE and ONSIDE are two football terms. Only one of these can be
pluralized in OWL16. Both can be pluralized in CSW2015.
The one which can be pluralized in OWL16 has a tough-to-find anagram.

There are 4-letter front extensions for both INDOORS and OUTDOORS.
