Crossover Question

Post by Nebula » Wed Oct 21, 2009 11:23 am

Sorry if this has been asked before.

If the team crossing over has a record that actually puts them in second place, will they host the semi-final game?

No, that was the case last year. The Eastern team actually finishing in 2nd place in the east hosts the game regardless if the 4th place team from the west division has more points. :wink:

Good thing too, otherwise you'd have the bizarre situation where the 4th place team in the west got a home game and the 3rd place team didn't, which could conceivably cause a team to try to lose in order to finish 4th. It's complicated enough the way it is now.
I helped pay for it, I'm calling it "Skydome."

Simply

4th is still last. You are a loser and the biggest loser of your conference. You don't deserve squat.
Contrary to popular belief, the most dangerous animal is not the lion or tiger or even the elephant. The most dangerous animal is a shark riding on an elephant, just trampling and eating everything they see.

When we get 10 teams I'll still be in favour of the crossover.
