Sunday REC-SF Lower 2012 Winter-Spring Playoff Brackets

WED 3/14 (1:45PM) — Here are the playoff seedings for REC-SF Lower. Because there was definitely an element of “sandbagging” going on in both SF-AM and SF-PM this season, we’ve separated all the REC-SF teams into Upper and Lower, by being at or above .500 versus below .500. To see the standings, please use the League Navigator on in right-hand panel of this website. We’ll post playoff brackets later…

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.
