Playoffs (men's and Co-ed) and Tie-Breakers

Hi all,

Here is how the playoffs will work this year for both the men's league and co-ed division.

The first place team from each division will automatically get a bye to the "A" and "B" semi finals.

Sept 23rd, 2012:

================================================

The Tie Breakers will go as follows (in the case of a 3+ way tie if at any time during the tie breaking procedure one or more teams, but not all, comes out ahead or behind that team is removed and the tiebreaking procedure starts again at number 1 with the remaining teams if necessary):

1) Head to head record for games involving only the tied teams.

2) Head to head point differential for games involving only the tied teams.

3) Head to head points against for games involving only the tied teams.

4) Most wins

5) Average Point Differential for the entire season of games played (Defaults excluded).

6) Fewest average points against for the entire season of games played (Defaults excluded).

7) Coin flip.

Any Question???

If so shoot me an email scott@oshawafootball.com

I'll be happy to answer them.

Thanks,

Scott

RE: Playoffs (men's and Co-ed) and Tie-Breakers

here's a question...what happens if in numerous games the game was called due to a blowout, thereby limiting the possible point differential stat?

If you are winning the game by that much then you shouldn't have anything to worry about. but I think next year for point differential we are going to put a maximum of 21 pts for any given game to limit teams from running up the score. For this year though if the game is called early there isn't anything we can do. overall point differential shouldn't often come into play anyways being that is the 4th tie breaker.

@ B4L

I doubt that if there is a tie between two teams that there would have been a blowout in any of the games played against each other. You guys running up the score on lesser teams doesnt factor in to the scoring. Only the teams involved in the tie.

So if there is a tie for 1st, I doubt you ended the game early vs the rogues or the steelers.... but i could be wrong.
