2011 Spring-Summer Sundays Roadmap: 6FT-OAK

THU 7/4 (4:30PM) — The week before the 6/26 games were scheduled, two teams asked for a bye for 6/26. Since this represented 2 out of the 3 weekly games in the 6-team 6FT-OAK, it was agreed by all 6FT-OAK captains that we would simply postpone the next slate of games to 7/10, esp with 7/3 approaching as the July 4th holiday in which no gyms would be open. On the roadmap below, you can also see how the playoff schedule will unfold. Here’s a list of changes that have been made to the roadmap thus far, and the dates in which the changes were made…

5/12 – initial post
6/7 – move 6/12 ESF/EBE to 6/19 (tipoff conflict)
6/23 – push back 6/26 to 7/10 (bye reqs)

WED 5/11 (1:00PM) — Here’s the roadmap for the season for 6FT-OAK. Please note, this the first draft and is subject to change, based on any unforeseen circumstances for this Sun 5/15. I should know by tomorrow night if there are any such quirks, such as a drastic special request that would cause disruption in the schedule.

The feedback that we got from teams was that they wanted to stay in their city more-so than anything else. In the past, we have had no choice but to combine the OAK with SF teams so as to create a division with at least six teams. Now, we have six teams alone in OAK (and six in SF), so there is no need to blend the two divisions.

Granted, we could have one Sunday where we pit OAK vs SF, but where would we hold the games? That becomes the difficulty in choosing between OAK or SF. So nevermind that, we’ll just have two separate divisions of 6FT, one in OAK and one in SF.

With just 6 teams, I don’t think it makes sense to have a 7-game regular season schedule. You play each team for 5 games, then repeat once. Repeating twice to give you 7 games would just be redundant, and when we repeat, it is best to do it based on standings: 1st vs 2nd, 3rd vs 4th, 5th vs 6th. Then remember playoff start right after that, and you have #4 vs #5 and #3 vs #6, so it’s more spread out that way. If you go with a 7-game regular season, what are the matchups for the 2nd week of repeats? Just too complicated that way.

As a result, with only 6 games in the regular season, we default to all 6 teams having double-elimination status for the playoffs, which upholds the 8-game minimum season that is guaranteed in Dream League.

You can see I matched up the actual 5/8 matchups to adhere to the structure of the 6-team schedule. Future blocks of games per week, even this Sun 5/15, could theoretically be juggled to accommodate a schedule quirk here or there. Should you be concerned with anything you see below, please email wylie(at)dreamleague(dot)org and we will explain or fix it.

Remember, this is strictly a 6’0″ without shoes division. We have so many divisions, if you do have someone over 6’0″ without shoes, you’re supposed to play in that division (e.g., A/R-OAK or AAA-OAK).

If you see red text with a line through it, it means that’s where the game was originally scheduled in a “perfect” template. However, special requests can move those games to other dates, such as denoted in bold green, and a series of swaps can occur, but the matchups will always be fixed. The number of red cross-outs should always equal the number of bold green adds.
