Smallball 'Best of the Rest' Tournament IX

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

As such, things will be kept pretty lose with few rules. There will be no set days or times that games need to be played by. Just try to play the games as quickly as possible so that the tournament doesn't spill over into the next season.

As soon as the standings have been posted/updated, you can being playing your games.

The home team will ALWAYS initiate the game..

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 updating 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 away team can go ahead and initiate the game.

Also, since this is a casual tournament, there is 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.

As always.. I might need 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 that I can setup the structure.. do not play a game until you see your matchup listed.

Well.. It's just about that time again.. Time for the rest of us who aren't lucky or skilled enough to make the regular playoffs to claim the coveted 17th place finish.

Since I will be running this in twikoff's place, we will continue with the Single Elimination tournament.

I have up the basic format of the tournament. Once the season is over and the playoff teams are identified, I will post the BOTR schedule and games can then start to be played.

Home teams will initiate the games.. After a 4-6 hour time period has elapsed, I will post and allow the away team to initiate any game that hasn't started.

Good luck and have fun!

Yeah.. well... I just wanted to get the thread and placeholders in before other people started posting.

And, yes.. if a mod can change this from VIII to IX, that would be super!

Well.. you got a bump from my team yesterday. Though its not like I really expected to win.

I think you're a lock anyways.. even if you lose your last 3 games and the drivers or heat win their last 3 games, you still will have more games won then them.

If anyone doesn't want to take part, please let me know here, in the BOTR thread, by email or any of the instant messenger programs I have listed in my profile. That way I can forfeit you out so the tourney isn't held up.

Vyrce: Are teams like the Ambrosians and Injured reserve even going to know this tourney exists, since they have never played a league game at this point?

no.... They are just filler teams.

Because I added in the 2 real teams from the AAA division, it created an odd number of pairings. So, I added in those 2 teams. They are both in the away column, and will not win against the teams they are matched up with.

As it is, I had to add an extra round and throw in a couple of Filler place holders to get even pairings.

I'm not quite sure what to do in those.. Probably should just put in a bye to make it easier.

I really hope that this tourney isn't gonna be tainted because of the work I put in trying to figure out how to make use of the odd team pairings.

Because if I replace all the "Filler" with a bye, the Pumpkins or Monsters/Slashers basically get a free ride to the final round... hmmmmmmm
