Following the recent posts and stating the most important fact...
The 55 Major FG team got beat TWICE in Vegas, finished 2nd and got bumped up to PLUS and the teams that beat us did not.
Yes - we did have two 60 Major + --- repeat 60 M+ players and one of them AH’d and only hit (2) HR’s the entire tourney. The balance of the team: three old T. Bandit major players, three old FG majors, 5 other assorted Major players including a midget playing third base.
Does this BUMP decision reflect previous rulings by management ?
Not to cause grief for old friends or the ire of SS management but, Rapid Erectors won 5 tourneys last year in 50 Major and are still 50 Major. FanGrabber LOSE one tourney and get bumped up….
We all expect transparency and fairness from SSUSA Management when they are called on for critical decisions. I can’t believe anyone protested to SSUSA about a LOSING SECOND place team…. So this edict moving FG to “PLUS” came out of the blue - what motive and reason is behind this …??
Is it possible to appeal this Rating Bump? The “Rating Guidelines" say teams are evaluated after (3) tourneys and ratings are reviewed. If a HOT team smokes the competition in Mar, Apr, May, they will then get bumped midseason or in Nov… but LOSE the FIRST tourney of the year and get Bumped ….
We will have to write and letter appealing the appeal process and appeal to the same folks who first made the decision … We can only hope time and fairness will prevail and the decision reversed.
