► Scheduling of Games ◄
1. Either team may send the scrim request, regardless of their seed.
2. Regular season games, IF and only IF they are within the rounds time frames, may be substituted, and then only if both owners agree.
3. If you have all 6 scrim slots taken up, and cannot possibly get your tourney game complete in the appropriate timeframe, you can be forfeited for your round.
► Please Follow schedule If we get early games in, keep the pace going. ◄
1st round games will be played before day 5.
2nd round games will be played before day 10
3rd round will be played before day 15.
4th round games will be played before day 20.
5th round games will be played before day 25
(This will depend largely on the number of teams that we have entered as to how many rounds we need to go. If we have a lot of teams, then we will need to follow the above schedule, but if we have less teams we will space out the rounds some and adjust accordingly. One other note here about the dates for the Rounds.... we will be a LITTLE flexible in scheduling as we hate to force anyone to forfeit a game, BUT we cannot allow the tourney to fall too far behind as other teams will be sitting around waiting, so please make sure you leave some dates open along the way.)
► When you set up the scrimmage please select these and only these options ◄
[x]This friendly is ranked and should be taken seriously
[ ] Results are viewable by the participants only
[x] Use playoff-style overtime rules
[ ] Enable home team abilities
[ ] Enable salary-based morale bonuses
► Season 30 ◄
We will try running a smaller tourney that accommodates National Pro+ and then Rookie. We MAY add another level if we have enough interest, but the above two are what we are basically pushing for.
► ► Rookie & PeeWee - PLEASE READ: ◄ ◄
While we cannot control when players or teams decide to boost, this Rookie Tournament asks that teams proclaim their intentions so we can group teams against similar opponents instead of having a team of level 1's playing a team of level 4's or a team of level 4's against a team of level 7's. It is REQUIRED that teams inform us upon registering for the tourney what their intent is. If after the brackets are set they change and boost differently than they registered as, the tourney committee retains the right to eliminate teams based on what is best for the tourney. This does not mean that if one player on the team boosts against the teams will they will be automatically eliminated, but if it is obvious that the team is trying to game the tournament, then the committee will forfeit that team. All decisions in these instances will be made by the tournament committee only.
