Sunday OAK-AM 2012 Winter-Spring Playoff Brackets

TUE 3/13 (9:15PM) — Here are the playoff seedings for OAK-AM. We split the division such that the teams under .500 went to a OAK-REC Lower bracket, so look for the Lower bracket in another post. To see the standings, please use the League Navigator on in right-hand panel of this website. We’ll post playoff brackets later…

  1. Throwing Up Bricks (6-0) — won Eastern Conference
  2. Grim Reapers (4-2) — won Western Conf, won head to head vs Top Flight REC
  3. WWWD (5-1)
  4. All Ham No Turkey (4-2) — won head to head vs Top Flight REC
  5. Top Flight REC (4-2) — lost head to head vs AHNT
  6. Hefty (3-3)

Dream League uses the NFL Wild-Card Tiebreaker system, which basically means (1) head-to-head results, (2) record vs common opponents, (3) strength-of-victory (we interpret that as point differential in games won, then overall point differential), and (4) the rarely used strength-of-schedule. As with the NFL Wild-Card system, you compare teams within your conference first, then outside of your conference. Teams that finish below other teams in the same conference cannot finish higher than that team, therefore, the tiebreaker process starts all over again at the top after you’ve eliminated each successive team from a tiebreaker.
