Season 9 will kick off Monday, January 2, 2017. If that’s not soon enough for you, go play some open league to get your noob teams skilled up! There are some changes for this go around, so pay attention.
– Cost for the season will be $25, payable to either myself or the Ass-mish. If you will be playing this season, you MUST let me know by Monday December 19. Payment can happen any time before or after that. The reason for the advanced sign-ups is…
– This season will be scheduled. The exact form and length of the schedule won’t be known until I know exactly how many of you are competing. Each game will have a two week period assigned to it, and the game must be completed by 11:59 PM on the second Sunday. You may play ahead of the schedule if both coaches are able to do so, but your games must be played in the order listed on the schedule.
– If a scheduled game is not completed on time, and both coaches put in a reasonable attempt to make it happen, the game will go into the books as a 0-0 tie, with no FF, winnings, or SPP given to either team. If one coach feels the other made no effort to get the game scheduled, they may request a forfeit. The Commish and/or Ass-mish will consider the request and grant or deny the forfeit accordingly. A forfeit will count as a 2-0 win for the opponent, with no FF, winnings, or SPP awarded. If you know you are going to have a scheduling conflict, plan ahead accordingly and/or contact the Commish.
– Starting this season, the playoffs will be mildly based on the four majors as outlined in the Glittering Prizes section of the CRP, beginning with the Spike for Season 9.
Also, when you are entering the match reports for your games this year, enter the name of the store/bar/cafe where you played in the comments section. Once this season is done, we’ll have a better idea of where we’re playing most often, and make more formal arrangements regarding our “League HQ” at that time, and schedule our playoffs accordingly.
