Discussion: Ratings Day??????

Dirty, I agree there is nothing wrong with moving up. After all, isn't that the real purpose of the competition? But, why is it that you can win one tournament with 3 teams in the bracket and be moved up, but you have to play 3 tournaments and get your butt kicked just so you can make an appeal to be moved down? Every team out there can have one of those tournaments where everything goes right and you win. But, should that mean an automatic move up when the other 13 tournaments you played in didn't produce any trophy's? I think that if you have to play 3 to move down, you should have to win 3 to move up. It makes it a little more equitable and does not penalize the team that "got lucky" for a weekend.

Discussion: Way to go, Guys

In my opinion, this rule isn't about the sliding, but about collisions. Normally, you don't try to run over a 2nd or 3rd baseman, you slide to avoid the tag. Going home, you could always run over the catcher. Remember Pete Rose/Ray Fosse? I think this rule is more about avoiding those types of plays. I'm not saying the 2nd baseman is at less an advantage with his back turned, but they will get hurt on the slide, not someone just running them over. I don't know about you, but when I was growing up, you were taught to "run through" the catcher if you had to.

Discussion: TOC Pictures, Please, Please, Please!!!

Jack, I agree with Birdie. This year's site was much better than last year's. Easier to navigate and full size pictures are much better. Also, I liked the fact it doesn't automatically go into slide show mode. Arrangement of games was also much better.

Discussion: Reiterating The Issue Concerning TOC Brackets

Just to set the record straight, Northern Virginia Force did not get rated Major until October, after Phoenix. The first tournament we played as a major team was the Winter Nationals (and we went 1-5). We were AAA all year long, since the WN started the 2010 season. We qualified as AAA and went as AAA. I agree with Hitt2, sour grapres and complaining seems to be the theme on this board. I always thought that tournaments were played to be won and with it the goal of moving up. Somebody stated before that it seems everyone wants to play low so they can win, and when they do, they complain they got moved up and they really don't belong there. Every team below the Major+ level should be striving, as the U.S. Army says, to be the best that you csn be. If you're afraid of the competition, stay in league ball.

Discussion: Teams Being Bumped Up

The thing I don't like is, you only have to win one tournament to move up, but you have to get your butt kicked in three to have a possibility of moving back down. There should be some consistency there. Every team can have their day for one tournament. The question is, are they winning the majority of the tournaments they enter? I agree you should stay the same rating all year and then make adjustments at the end.

Mr. Manassas, wasn't your one win in an ISSA event? I thought since the breakup of the Summit, other associations tournaments weren't supposed to count against you.

Jeff, thanks for the information on the funeral arrangements. Northern Virginia Force would like to make a contribution in Homer's name to a heart association or some other appropriate charity. Do you have any idea of Homer's or the family's wishes concerning a donation? Thanks.
