Stars and Stripes

Post by helightsthelamp » Tue Apr 23, 2013 10:41 am

Schedules are online.

Looks like the same malarkey as other years... create as weak of a schedule as possible for the Orange teams to give them every opportunity to advance to the medal round.

At 03 level, they are in the same bracket as MG, however they don't play MG. In addition, MG plays one game cross bracket against the Blades.

Not complaining just commenting, I would prefer to play better competition, if you want to be the best you have to beat the best, cleary MM does not have the same thought process.

I wonder who Legacy will bring in now that the 03 Blades are in the tournament, as such, they will be without their Blades players...

Not sure why this complaint comes up every year at every MM tournament. Even with the disclaimer that the complaint isn't a complaint. It isn't any different than every winter tournament, the host always gives themselves what they perceive to be the easiest route to the championship game. It's the beauty of being the ones doing the brackets.

It is on the main page lower right, not on the tournament page, looks like changes have taken place.... Looks like Legacy dropped out at 03 level, now the Blues?.... I guess since Legacy does not have their blades players they must not be able to compete????

I heard that Legacy only had 10 players that could make the tournament, it would have been their 6th tournament of the season. They were going to fill in for a team that dropped out.

Only had ten players after didn't have blades players? I assume you are indicating 2nd place at the Border Battle? A quick look at the website and it appears the leading scorer for Legacy during that tournament was not an 03, but an 02 player from the 02 Red team..... maybe even a couple of other 02's?

In 01, who is Northern Elite? YHH has 'em ranked 2nd overall, and I can't figure out who they are because I am an innocent babe in the summer AAA woods...
