WED 3/9 (3:15PM) — We had 9 teams this season but we are going to move the Janitors (average margin of loss = 30 pts) to a lower division. If you’re the Janitors and you’re reading this, you’re wondering: which division? Well, that remains to be seen. I’m going top to bottom on all the divisions. I can say that it probably will be a lower division that has an odd number of teams. REC-AM and REC-PM are gargantuan divisions which need to be split into an “upper” and “lower” separate bracket. We’ll just have to see how that shakes out for them.
Btw, Out Of Retirement could be considered “struggling”, but (a) I know this team and I have a feeling they may be under-performing this season thus far, and (b) they haven’t really been in “official” (i.e., 20 points or more) blowouts: -12, -8, -9, -3, -4. The -4 was against the #1 team, too. Also, taking them out of this division would leave an odd number of teams and odd-numbered divisions are just that much harder to deal with. Btw, I doubt they would want to move down, too. Anyways, here’s what we got…
- Purefoods (6-0) — won Eastern Conference
- ReDream Team (5-1) — won Western Conference
- Shottas (4-2)
- City Select (3-3) — won head-to-head vs Wolfpack
- Wolfpack (3-3) — won head-to-head vs 93 Til Infinity, lost head-to-head vs City Select
- 93 Til Infinity (3-3) — lost head-to-head vs Wolfpack
- Oakboyz II Men (2-4)
- Out Of Retirement (1-5)
In a limited-game format, Dream League has adopted the NFL Wild-Card tiebreaker rules (NFL = 16 games, of course). In that scenario, whenever there is a 3-way tie or more, they look at intra-division, then look outside the division. Therefore, because Wolfpack beat 93 Til Infinity head-to-head, 93 Til Infinity can literally never finish ahead of Wolfpack. Only then do we compare outside, so you compare to City Select and City won that head-to-head. This means there is no need to compare City vs Infinity.
Anyways, pretty straightforward from here on out: #8 at #1, and so forth. When we hit Losers Bracket, matchups will be determined by highest-seed vs lowest-seed.
TUE 2/15 (11:30AM) — The following are the current standings and playoff seeds from 2011 Winter-Spring, AAA-OAK division. These are simply ordered by W-L percentage then alphabetically, and therefore are not necessarily shown in the proper playoff tiebreaker order. That will be corrected when we reach the playoffs and the seeds are posted. Please be reminded that the regular season is 6 games. Check your division’s roadmap and email us if you suspect any discrepancies in the schedule/standings.
In the AAA-OAK, there are 9teams. Barring unforeseen circumstances, we would have a first round playoffs that includes a “play-in” between #9 vs #8 for the right to meet #1, probably the same day (i.e., a doubleheader). Please be reminded that all teams will get double-elimination status for the playoffs.
