SAT 7/16 (9:00AM) — In the interests of time, I’ll need to be brief discussing the A/R-SF playoff seeds. Please note, Left Coast Hoops joined this division for playoffs due to their winless regular season and major struggles in the AAA-SF…
- Braves (6-0) — won Eastern Conference
- Stun Guns (5-1) — won Western Conference
- Heatonkees (5-1)
- Ball Boys (4-2) — won head-to-head vs Bring Protection
- Bring Protection (4-2) — lost head-to-head vs Ball Boys
- Elite SF (3-3)
- Blazers (2-4)
- Wolverines (1-5) — tied common opp (0-5) vs Tilt, won s-o-v (13.0) vs Tilt, won common (2-1) vs Bomb
- Full Tilt (1-5) — lost s-o-v (9.0) vs Wolv, no h2h vs Bomb, won common opp (1-2) vs Bomb
- Bombsquad (1-5) — lost common opp (0-4) vs Full Tilt, cannot finish higher than Full Tilt
- Left Coast Hoops (0-6) — joins from AAA-SF
With the top two seeds going to the conference winners, that avoids a tiebreaker calculation involving Heatonkees. The only other complication was the lack of head-to-head between Wolverines and Full Tilt. In the NFL tiebreaker system (best suited for a short regular season), you compare teams tied within your conference first. So after no head-to-head resolution, we move to common opponents between Wolverines and Full Tilt. As you can imagine, their other 5 games were all losses to the same teams, whereby Wolverines had only beaten the Blazers and likewise Full Tilt had only beaten Elite SF.
So common opponents resolved nothing. At that point we revert to the NFL’s next rule, the so-called “strength of victory”, which is purposely left ambiguous. Dream League defines that as point differential in games won. We also cap blowouts at 20 points. In that comparison, you merely look at the point differential in each team’s lone win. Wolverines beat Blazers by 13, while Full Tilt beat Elite by 9. Case solved.
Now that we knew Full Tilt could never finish higher than Wolverines, we compare to the opposite conference, against Bombsquad. First, vs the Wolverines, Bombsquad did not have a head-to-head and had an 0-4 record against the common opponents of Bring Protection, Stun Guns, and Blazers, while the Wolverines had that win over the Blazers to go 1-2 against the same set of common opponents.
With Full Tilt, we do the same comparison. The only difference was that instead of the Blazers, both Full Tilt and Bombsquad had also played against Elite SF, which Full Tilt won. So once again you have the Blazers winless against a common set of opponents and Full Tilt with one win.
Therefore, Bombsquad finishes below Full Tilt.
FRI 6/10 (1:30PM) — The following are the current standings from 2011 Spring-Summer, A/R-SF 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.
We have 10 teams and will play 7 regular season games each. Teams that finish 4-3 or better will get double-elimination status for the playoffs. Teams that finish 3-4 or worse will be one-and-done for the playoffs. Check your division’s roadmap for the calendar and email us if you suspect any discrepancies in the schedule/standings.
