    No... Seven games only two non-conference.

    That would be a thought! You could do a three year rotation of your non-conference opponents in such a scenario. Now, how I'd schedule this I have no idea, but I basically gave CPL the reins on that one two season ago when we instituted conferences. ;)

    Imagine, if you will, a galactic sports league, popular beyond all measure. Imagine a team playing at the absolute height of its power, fresh off a championship. Imagine that this team leads every major statistical category. Imagine this team losing narrowly in its final game of the season, at home, on its major national holiday, against a bitter rival. Imagine that this team retains its top ranking in all statistics.

    But picture this: that this team would not go to the playoffs because of conference record.

    You have entered...THE MINERS ZONE!

    Do do do do do do do do...

    But that would require everything to go wrong for you next week. Like that'll ever happen. :rolleyes:

    AAAHHH!! Damn pizza runs. I haven't gotten an email alert for the game thread since Wednesday, but I've been getting them for this thread and the library thread fine. 8-}

    Looks like I have some catching up to do.

    EDIT:

    CPL_Macja, I love the pun on Storm. I honestly hadn't thought about that. :D

    Oh, and the Storm's playoff chances?

    Not one of the Week 6 scenarios played out. So I'm down from five chances to two. Of course the Storm are going to throw the season away at the end. Don't they always? :rolleyes:

    Join the club. :rolleyes:

    Hm . . .

    Week 6 scenarios for me:

    Win vs. Bakura - Nope
    Monarchs Loss - Nope
    Smugglers Loss - Yes, but this doesn't help me anyways (see below)
    Mercs Loss - No, but this was bound to happen

    Week 7:

    Win vs. Ralltiir
    (If no win) Monarchs and Smugglers Loss


    Yep, I'm screwed. :(

    If the Patriots come back this next season, I think I know where they'll land. :p

    I can't believe that I am about to write this...

    I am cheering for Bakura next week.

    Man that left a nasty taste in my mouth. :p

    I think Trieste gets that honor. :p Or Bardan_Jusik for dragging you into our little corner of madness.

    Ok, I should know this but what are the tie breakers we use to determine playoff berths and seeding? I know overall record, then conference record but where do we go after that? The Solo Conference is still crazy tight right now.

    It should go to Point Differential (a.k.a. why today's loss was so crippling for me :p). Either that or Head-to-Head; I don't remember which.

    Yeah I figured it was either head to head or point differential. Just can't remember which one. :p

    EDIT: I found it. It goes:

    1. Overall win-loss record
    2. Conference win-loss record
    3. Head-to-head result
    4. Point differential (points scored less points allowed)
    5. Points scored
    6. Coin flip
