THU 1/13 (9:00PM) — Finally done. Scroll down. Please review the byes and special requests on the right side of the table.
THU 1/13 (5:15PM) — The scorekeeping staff in Oakland is soooo complicated!! Still working on it. But SF and SJ are done. Only problem is, I can’t show just tipoffs for those, it’s all or nothing. So I will just say that these are the start times:
- MDLS 10:00am
- ISAH 11:30am
- JLHS 1:00pm
- PHHS 1:30pm
Then you can extrapolate your tipoff from there, if you are an SF or SJ team. I repeat: SF and SJ tipoffs are done! Just can’t really post them explicitly yet — meaning, I will not be changing these SF/SJ tipoffs.
Again, still working on OAK! What a pain! Had no idea. Mo Scorekeepers (who play on 3 teams yeah that means you Freddie LOL), Mo Problems!
THU 1/13 (12:30PM) — Here’s another draft, but I spent most of the morning trying to find a backup gym, which I found, for TFRC (PCRC it is). I also moved a game from OAK to SF. Please note, although you may be listed at a particular gym, I could very well move you to another gym in the same city.
I still have a lot of work to do with the scorekeeping staff, particularly in OAK where so many of our scorekeepers play in the league, so I’m afraid — as in every season for the past X number of seasons — the Week #1 schedule below will not be set in stone until probably tonight or, worse, late night. Sorry about that.
That being said, the PCRC/BCRC/IJRC would probably see the most movement in the next draft, whereas the SF and SJ games will probably just stay near where they are, barring complicated overlaps of players on 2 teams, which doesn’t appear to be too complicated per the Overlap list right now.
Bear in mind, I wish as much as you do to not have to delay publishing the schedule. Every season it’s a struggle though, with gyms being closed or what not, or scorekeepers not being available. So I think for Week #2 and onward, the usual Thursday morning posting will probably have to suffice, as it has for many years.
THU 1/13 (8:00AM) — Here’s the first draft of the schedule for this Sun 1/16. It has not been vetted for scorekeeping staff playing on various teams, as well as the Overlap list on the right hand side. You can also reconcile the Special Request list with the Make Special Request page (use the League Navigator widget in the RH column to get there).
Note: the pref1 and pref2 columns represent the tipoff timeframe or specific preference for this week for each team, respectively, left to right. The ones in red are of utmost conflict, where we likely had to use the 3pm midpoint rule. As I mentioned in the emails to the captains, I would be purposely trying to get teams with opposite timeframes but in the same division, started with complexities, the earlier done, the better.
That’s one of the things about Dream League. We make ourselves a bit more flexible to play against teams more suited to our competition. Otherwise we’re all playing in the times we want, but the teams that are in the times you want range wildly in competitiveness. Not so in Dream League.
See gym abbreviations and locations under the table. I’ve left out tipoffs on purpose, but here are probable start times: MDLS morning, ISAH morning, TFRC midday, BCRC late morning, IJRC late morning, JLHS midday, PHHS early afternoon.
Btw, we will be posting separate articles like this for each week’s schedule build-up to Sunday.
The final version should be up by Thursday (today) afternoon.
IF THERE ARE ANY URGENCIES AT THIS LATE JUNCTURE OF THE WEEK, HAVE YOUR CAPTAIN TEXT ME (OR EMAIL ME).
NOTE: If you see blank rows in the table below, there are errors; if so, please disregard the table and email me immediately.
