Sunday A/R-SF Lower 2012 Winter-Spring Playoff Brackets

THU 3/15 (3:30PM) — Here are the playoff seedings for A/R-SF Lower. We’ve separated all the A/R-SF teams into Upper and Lower, by being at or above .500 versus below .500. It was just easier to keep this Lower bracket at 4 teams, rather than add BTR AAA (see A/R-SF Upper explanation via League Navigator using Category=Teams/Standings on the right). Five teams would’ve been a tad more of a pain to schedule. In any case, we won’t start this bracket until 3/25 because of the gym shortage in SF on 3/18. To see the standings, please use the League Navigator on in right-hand panel of this website. We’ll post playoff brackets later…

  1. Blazers (2-4) — won head-to-head vs Heatonkees
  2. Heatonkees (2-4) — lost head-to-head vs Blazers
  3. Wolverines (1-5)
  4. ZNGA (0-6)

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.
