2009 Winter/Spring AAA-6FT (SF/Peninsula)
|Player on Golden Showers suspended indefinitely|
TUE 4/28 (9:00PM) -- Kim Tek of the Golden Showers has been suspended indefinitely. He made some comments to the referee and opponents that threatened their safety of going back to the parking lot after the game.
The Golden Showers have paid for 10 slots, which allows them to bring up to 12 players. However, with Tek's suspension, they are now limited to 11.
He is not allowed to appear in the gym because his recent actions were safety-related. If he appears at our gym, the Golden Showers will be forfeited on the spot. In short, it is best if he just takes some time off from dreamleague.
Tek will not be reinstated for any future season until I talk to him personally. I will not be making a proactive effort to do so, so the ball is in his court. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he set a dreamleague record for technicals this season. This past Sunday, he way overstepped the line.
Playoffs for 6FT-SFP set!
MON 4/13 (3:15PM) -- So the Predators upset the Bay Area Ballers in the last regular season game yesterday 4/12, leading to a final standings that had teams move around at the top a lot the last couple weeks, primarily with the BA Ballers' recent losses. Rather surprising, quite frankly.
Here are the playoff seedings and tiebreakers...
The following teams have double-elim playoff status
1. Golden Showers (6-2)
2. Predators (5-3) -- beat BA Ballers and Octavious head-to-head
3. Bay Area Ballers (5-3) -- lost to Predators and beat Octavious head-to-head
4. Octavious (5-3) -- lost to both Predators and BA Ballers head-to-head
The following teams have single-elim playoff status
5. Alpha Q (3-5) -- beat Team Go head-to-head
6. Team Go (3-5) -- lost to Alpha Q head-to-head
7. Ryusei (1-7)
The next round of playoffs will occur this Sunday 4/19. However, with only 7 teams, the #1 Golden Showers get a bye on 4/19.

6FT-SFP final regular season standings
WED 4/13 (3:15PM) -- Standings updated thru 4/12's final regular season game. Playoffs discussed above.
|Bay Area Ballers||5||3||0.625||1.0|
WED 4/8 (10:30AM) -- Only one more regular season game left on 4/12, then I can do playoff seedings for 4/19 and onward.
WED 4/1 (12:45AM) -- The Predators are now ahead of Octavious due to this regular season head-to-head result: 6ft-sfp: predators 51, octavious 42. The matchups for 4/5 are as follows...
repeat2: Alpha Q at Octavious
repeat2: Team Go at Ryusei
repeat2: Bay Area Ballers at Golden Showers
bye: Bay Area Ballers
repeat2: Predators at Bay Area Ballers
...and are based on standings. Bay Area Ballers have a doubleheader being the 1st place team this week. Octavious and Ryusei are at RWC again.
For the playoffs (and I have to check the replies on whether or not everyone wanted to proceed on Easter 4/12 next week), with 7 teams, we would give the #1 seed a first-round bye. Teams at or over .500 get double-elim status.
TUE 3/24 (11:45PM) -- Here are scores from 3/22...
6ft-sfp: alpha q 45,predator 36 -- Way to even it up, Alpha.
6ft-sfp: bay area ballers 63, octavious 47 -- Not a surprise.
...and here are the tiebreakers for now. I simply took head-to-head point differential in the interests of time..
6ft-sfp: alpha q 45,predator 36
From 2/8... 6ft-sfp: Octavious 47, Alpha Q 44
Alpha Q +9 -3
Predators +9 -9
Octavious -9 +3
...and here are the next round of matchups for 3/29...
repeat1: Octavious (3-3) at Ryusei (1-5) -- Ryusei's looking to salvage the season while Octavious needs just one more win to clinch double-elim status. Looking good for Octv.
repeat1: Alpha Q (3-3) at Golden Showers (4-2) -- Tough matchup for Alpha Q. Not a good time to win the tiebreaker!
repeat1: Predators (3-3) at Team Go (2-4) -- Both teams fighting for double-elim status, although Team Go's is more urgent.
bye: Bay Area Ballers -- So this determines that the Ballers will play a DH on 4/5. With an odd number of teams, someone had to do it. I'm sure they can handle it. They'll probably draw two 4-win teams, so those two teams shouldn't worry too much, whomever they turn out to be. If I had a team in 6ft-sfp, I'd probably want to face the Ballers before heading into the playoffs, to get ready and really know what it will take to win the 6ft-sfp championship. Incidentally, with 7 teams, the #1 seed gets a first-round bye (that's just how we do it with 7 teams -- I just don't feel good about forcing a potential #2, #3, and #4 seed to play two games in the 1st round). Somehow, I think the Ballers can handle the bye-DH-bye that might be ahead of them, although anything can still happen.
(12:45PM) -- See roadmap for 3/29 below, although I might still change who has the doubleheader for 4/5 based on gym availability. Right now I'll saddle the BA Ballers with the dh on 4/5 since they are running away with the standings. Explanations coming soon.
TUE 3/17 (1:00PM) -- No recaps from 3/15 yet. No outlook past 3/22 yet.
TUE 3/10 (12:00PM) -- Quasi-recaps from 3/8 and general outlooks...
6ft-sfp: predators 51, octavious 42 -- Well, the Predators brought two guys who appeared to be over 6'0", with one of them possibly not even being Asian, but officially Octavious did not protest until after the game was decided. If I'm not there and can't stop the rain from falling, then I have to default to our rules and that's what it states in our rules: make your protest as soon as something happens. From here on out, if the Predators bring these two players who are from the basic information I have, Andre Walker and Mike Loo, or anyone else not Asian or 6'0" (without shoes, as deemed by my scorekeepers and refs), then they will forfeit that game because they (and everyone else) has been pre-warned right here. So the Predators are 2-2. Is that with or without Loo and Walker? I don't know. There's only two possibilities, either they are as strong as their record indicates, or they are actually worse without Loo and Walker. We'll see. Octavious is right in the thick of it. After all, we only have 7 teams and 5 of them are at or around .500 in the middle of the pack right now. Should be quite a fight to the finish for double-elim playoff status.
6ft-sfp: BA ballers74, Alpha Q 69 -- I'm more surprised that Alpha Q only lost by 5 points because the Bay Area Ballers, as champions from last season, are the favorite to win this season. And they're off to another roaring start. Alpha Q's hanging in there and they need 2 wins out of 4 to clinch double-elim status. They've got 3/15 vs Predators (2-2), and 3/29 and 4/5 against team similar in standings. Certainly do-able.
6ft-sfp: golden showers 53, team go 41 -- Last season was a repeat championship between the Golden Showers and the Bay Area Ballers. And for once (but maybe this has happened before but certainly not when I have scorekept), the Golden Showers won with Kim Tek having a subpar game. Now, I'm gonna get a little critical on Tek but I think he needs it. He needs to cut down on his Rasheed Wallace lash-outs on the refs, esp when penalized by Tek-nichals (hehe!). Seriously, if he can develop some composure and hit from outside, the Golden Showers are legitimate contenders to dethrone the Ballers. If he gets a "Tek", then I'll tell you right now, they ain't winning the championship. Composure is everything in the playoffs. If he fixes that, he's the MVP of the 6ft-sfp and the Golden Showers are champs.
Coming up on 3/15...
Team Go at Octavious -- Great litmus test for both teams. Who edges closer to being relegated to single-elim playoff status? Octavious better get it done soon because they've got 3/22 vs Ballers, but then cellar dweller Ryusei on 3/29, followed by an a standings-based matchup maybe to clinch double-elim or not on 4/5.
Predators at Ryusei -- Ryusei is in the cellar right now, but if they want to turn things around, now is the time. However, I'm not sure they have the talent or chemistry to do it, having seen them play. By the same token the Predators need to inch closer to their 4th regular season win. They must take care of business.
Golden Showers at Alpha Q -- The Golden Showers just need 1 more win for double-elim status, which they used to their advantage last season in pushing the BA Ballers to the brink. They've got 3/15 Alpha Q, bye 3/22, probably the 3rd place team on 3/29 assuming they are still behind the Ballers by then, then probably a great litmus test against the Ballers on 4/5 before heading into the playoffs.
bye: Bay Area Ballers -- Can anything stop this team except a bye? Now's also a good time to explain the remaining schedule. On 3/22 poor Octavious gets a chance to prove its mettle against these Ballers, 3/29 is a bye for the 1st place team which will likely be the Ballers because the Golden Showers are not only 1 game behind but also lost the head-to-head tiebreaker thus far, then 4/5 a doubleheader for the Ballers since they would probably be in 1st place, against probably the Golden Showers and the other top-3 team. I'm sure the mighty Ballers can handle that. In a 7-team field, someone has to play a doubleheader to end the season, so that's why I've chosen it to be the 1st place team. Of course, this discussion changes if the Ballers can't hold the top spot for another week.
