RE: 2009 OTFL Playoff Format

Pardon? Why not give the top seeds a bye into the SF just like any normal 6 team playoff system works.

The lowest ranked 3rd seed has no chance to gain a bye and is only risking injury while playing week 1 of the playoffs. Why bother?

One more week of regular season games and then playoffs would be the most logical idea.

RE: 2009 OTFL Playoff Format

I wanted to ensure that every team got at least 2 playoff games. Adding one more regular season would be tough since as of right now everyone plays everyone in their division twice and everyone in the other division once. So the final regular season game would have to be chosen at random. As for the 3rd place teams. If they are able to win in round 1 they would likely face the other 3rd place team in round 2 instead of of the 2nd place teams. This could be a big advantage so they definitely have something to play for in round 1 and if both 3rd place teams win in round one then one of them would get the bye to round 3. I appreciate your input though.

I don't understand the mentality behind 'risking injury' in the 1st week of playoffs, and then suggesting to run the regular season a week longer.

Would that not then mean that one would be risking injury - in an additional regular season game?

I think this format is great. It allows all teams sufficient time on the field - which is what everyone should want. Afterall, every team should get to play as much as possible.

It looks like the A championship side that a team may have to play a back to back game at 10:30and NOON the second game against the numner one seed. That is quite the handicap for the 2 or 3 place team

RE: 2009 OTFL Playoff Format

I was considering this option as well based on the current standings breakdown and it is still possible to completely switch things around and have the "A" be the 4 team playoff and the "B" be the 6 team playoff. I'll talk to some of the "fringe" teams (ie. Lancers, Raiders, Hounds, Hawks and Hosers) and see what there preference is. I do agree though that there does seem to be a more clear division between the 4th best team and the 5th best team then there is between the 6th best team and the 7th best team.

RE: 2009 OTFL Playoff Format

After considering the issue, I've decided that we will switch the playoff format so that the top 2 teams in each division will play for the "A" championship and the bottom 3 in each division will play for the "B" championship. See the revised playoff section on the home page or in the news section of the website.

Thanks,

Scott
