Question Problem with ModelView and ModelState.IsValid on [HttpPost]Create

I am following the NerdDinner example, but creating my own project, and am having a problem with the [HttpPost]Create when using the ModelView pattern.

When I click Save with a blank form ModelState.IsValid is returning true and trying to save the blank object to the database.

Here are my model classes:

    public partial class Team { }

    public partial class Team
        public Team()
            this.createdBy = 9;
            this.createdOn = DateTime.Now;
            this.deleted_b = false;

    public class Team_Validation
        [Required(ErrorMessage = "Name is required")]
        [StringLength(50, ErrorMessage = "Name may not be longer than 50 characters")]
        string Name { get; set; }

        [Required(ErrorMessage = "League is required")]
        int LeagueId { get; set; }

    public class TeamFormViewModel
        FFRepository data = new FFRepository();

        public Team Team { get; private set; }
        public SelectList Leagues { get; private set; }

        public TeamFormViewModel(Team team)
            this.Team = team;
            this.Leagues = new SelectList(data.GetLeagues(), "LeagueId", "ListName", Team.LeagueId);

Here is the aspx file:

<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Views/Shared/Site.Master" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<FFAdminMvc.Models.TeamFormViewModel>" %>

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="TitleContent" runat="server">
	Create New Team

<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="MainContent" runat="server">

    <h2>Create New Team</h2>

    <% using (Html.BeginForm()) {%>
        <%: Html.ValidationSummary(true) %>

            <div class="editor-label">
                Team Name
            <div class="editor-field">
                <%: Html.TextBoxFor(model => model.Team.Name)%>
                <%: Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Team.Name)%>

            <div class="editor-label">
            <div class="editor-field">
                <%: Html.DropDownListFor(model => model.Team.LeagueId, Model.Leagues, "")%>
                <%: Html.ValidationMessageFor(model => model.Team.Name) %>
                <input type="submit" value="Create" />


    <% } %>

        <%: Html.ActionLink("Back to List", "Index") %>

Here are the Create methods from the controller:

        // GET: /Team/Create
        public ActionResult Create()
            Team team = new Team();
            return View(new TeamFormViewModel(team));

        // POST: /Team/Create
        public ActionResult Create(Team team)
            if (ModelState.IsValid)
                return RedirectToAction("Details", new { id = team.TeamId });
                return View(new TeamFormViewModel(team));

Any help with what I'm missing would be greatly appreciated.

Missing a [Bind(Include"Name, LeagueId")] after the [MetadataType]?

Nerd dinner example looks like this:

public partial class Dinner
