Sunday Bird’s Eye View Schedule for 11/20

THU 11/17 (10:30AM) — We got a great many issues this Sun 11/20 with the schedule. First off, we are reduced to only a few timeslots at BCRC. Also, as you know from another article I wrote yesterday, I’m loathe to succumb to the much higher gym fees at WKRC. Finally, there are major tipoff request conflicts. Here are the divisions that will NOT play this Sun 11/20, and will resume on 12/4 (remember, 11/27 is Thanksgiving weekend and no games)…

  • rec-o-: The main problem I had here was that Dream/Warriors/Kryptonite all want early games, but there’s no other game early in any of the other Oakland divisions to put an hour rest for the winner of Dream/Warriors. Also, we can still finish this division off by 12/18.
  • rec-o+: The tipoff timeframes here were sort of over-ran by the other divisions, and the other divisions need to continue on to be over by 12/18. Also, Hype forfeited last week, so we need to collect $50 to pay the refs. If they don’t pay, then they’ll be expelled, not to mention frowned upon by our esteemed Oakland ref crew. This gives them time to pay the forfeit fee.
  • aaa-e: We can finish the regional champ off by 12/11 still and with a doubleheader and late request by OOR, scheduling was going to be next to impossible. It worked itself out.
  • a/r-sj: Please note, the four Losers Bracket teams are still playing, but just not a doubleheader. A bye for the “2nd half of this round” (for lack of better words) due to tipoff conflict caused by GSCC special request. Truth be told, GSCC’s requests have not been that productive this season, but their captain is very good at posting them to the MSR page in a reasonable timeframe and always pays the $5 when necessary. Also, Murkery and Garage are “running away” with this division, so maybe a bye will cool them off a bit and introduce a little parity. Who knows, maybe not.
  • aaa-sj: Again, a tipoff conflict made it hard to schedule the championship. But it doesn’t need to get played til 12/4 anyways, considering AAA-SF and AAA-OAK are behind, since those divisions have more teams. Remember, we are going to have a Bay Area championship involving all these three AAA locales.

Last two things: When you guys did signups, I told you not to take vacation thru 12/18. This is exactly why. And finally, you can see that during the playoffs and esp for Losers Bracket teams with doubleheaders, scheduling you exactly in your timeframe is very difficult sometimes. You just have to take it with a grain of salt and remember that Dream League is literally the only league out there that offers double-elimination status.

Here are the matchups that have been postponed, with a short explanation at the beginning. You can glean the tipoff timeframe cross-section difficulties at the end of each matchup too…
