Smallball 'Best of the Rest' Tournament VIII

Structure and Rules
This will be a single elimination tournament, for the 32 teams that did not make the standard playoffs.

basically.. we try to keep it really loose.. very few rules.. no set days or times for games to be played.. just try to play the games in reasonable time so we can make it through the tournament.

you can play your games as soon as the standings have been updated and you see your pairing, regardless of which round it is..

in this tournament.. to avoid confusion.. the home team will ALWAYS initiate the game.. I havent really looked to hard at how it works out.. my guess is that screws the lower seeds, unless they win.. so let that be a lesson to you lower seeds, WIN YOUR GAMES

to keep the tournament moving quicker.. I will post at certain intervals to let the away teams know that they may initiate games for a certain round (if they have not already been started).

when you finish a game, just come into this thread and post the tournament game number (number on the far left), smallball game #, and the final scores.. I will be updated the scores as often as possible, so that teams can go ahead and play their next games.

if a team is listed on vacation on the dvdtalk league page and they are suppose to initiate.. the home team can go ahead and initiate the game.

also.. since this is a loose tournament.. no need to worry about whether your opponent has trained for the day or has their bench people in.. although in the higher rounds (especially the championship).. it would be a good idea to communicate in the thread, so both teams can be trained up and we can get a good matchup.

and as always.. I right to change the rules and structure at any time, if it is necessary....

games will start as soon as dancinns posts the playoff teams.. so I can setup the structure.. do not play a game until you see your matchup listed.

well.. that time again..
its not my preference.. but again for this season.. we will go with a single elimination tournament..

Ill post the seeding as soon as dancinns has the playoff schedule ready.. and games can start immediatly after that..

home team initiates the games.. after a certain amount of time.. I will post to let the away teams know they can initiate any game that the home team has not already started.

good luck!

oh yea.. something that just came to mind...

the stadium situation and possible advantages it might bring

we wont be dealing with this situation.. home team.. initiate your games.. if you really feel strongly about the stadium deal, you can wait 4 hours till I say its ok for the away team to initiate (or I guess it would be fine, if you actually talk to the away team and both of you agree on them initiating)..


another thing Im going to do..
forfeits
as idgie had pointed out last season.. she could have skipped playing her game and probably would have won by forfeit.. I have been trying to pick the team that would win, or that had the better record, or was in the higher division..
this time.. it will be much more random and luck based, so teams dont try to force a win through forfeit..
I would rather not forfeit in favor of a team on vacation.. so I probably will forfeit against anyone that wont be around to play any of their games.. and other then that.. I will flip a coin
yes, seriously.. Im going to flip a coin to decide the winners.. so if you dont think thats a fair system.. play your games and you wont have to worry about it.. although, if its obvious that a team is around.. and just not playing their game to try and collect a forfeit, I definitly will forfeit that team out first (such as in a case where a 6* team avoids playing his game against a 8* team that isnt around, figuring he has a better chance at winning a coin toss, then at winning the actual game)

basically.. I have been trying to let a full day pass before handing out forfeits.. and will probably continue to do so.. unless its obvious that certain games wont be played, and they are holding up the tournament..

What's the deal with not playing games in order to get the stupid home field advantage? That's crap. I don't want to sit around for 4 hours to see if someone if going to play me, then I have to initiate myself. Just put higher seed teams on the right, so they can pick their stadium (if they set it in time) and the lower seed initiates unless they are legitimately on vacation.

Otherwise we are going to sit around all day because nobody will want to start a game that puts them in a stadium they don't like.

If this gets all political or even whinier than usual, count me out. I don't want to spend all weekend in this thread

it wont get whinier.. because we arent going to deal with the stadium situation at all..

the idea is still to keep it loose.. not alot of rules and dealing with crap like making sure your opponents players are trained, or that the right stadium is being used..

the higher seeded teams are generally the more active teams.. and I would much rather have the higher seeded teams initiate, so the tourney moves alot quicker..

if you really feel that strongly about the stadium being used.. then when your game is posted.. you can let your opponent know that you want to go ahead and concede your right at initiating.. then there is no need to wait 4 hours, as long as your opponent is active..

this in effect would give the higher seed team the choice of initiating or picking stadium.

So basically what you are doing is giving every advantage to the lower seeded teams?

I don't have the brain-strength to figure out what stadium/seed/whatever I'll be in in this tourney. I'll get ahold of Jenn so she can start any game(s) I might be scheduled to kick off, or if the 4 hours elapse, feel free. I am NOT on vacation, however.

I'm the #77 team in all of SmallBall! Come and get it!!! Bring it in!!!

Good luck to all!

nope.. the higher seed team gets the advantage of initiating.
if they really would rather worry about which stadium they are playing at, they can concede the right to initiate, and have the opponent start the game..
hopefully that doesnt stretch out how long the tournament takes, when one team is conceding to a team that isnt around, when the game could have already been played.
the idea is to keep it loose and not worry about many rules.. but this way, the higher seed team can pick which advantage they want.

ok.. the seedings are up.. go ahead and start your games

home team has the option to initiate first.. if you really are worried about your opponents stadium, you can go ahead and let your opponent know that they can start the game whenever they want. Otherwise, I will post a message in a few hours to announce when away teams can initiate any games that the home team hasnt started yet..

ugh.. being the 2 seed was rude to me.. looks like Ill be out quick
