Where to appeal?
Could somebody help me? I Want to appeal my teams ranking ( I know good luck with that!) Is there some kind of form on this site or if not how do you go about this?

Go play against better teams. It will make your team better, and make your wins more meaningful.

SLUGGERS13 there used to be a link on this site for the forms you need but it is gone. The SPA site has the forms on their site along with the directions. You need at least three tournaments listed along with a detailed letter explaining why you think you should be moved down. Good luck.

Dirty, you shouldn't post if you don't know the situation. The Sluggers did play the best teams in the SE this past weekend.

Bruce, I believe they did. Now it sounds like they don't want to anymore. Were they that outmatched?

Acording to this website, the Sluggers were 1 and 4 last weekend, beating Pinehurst Pub and losing to Tommy Currid Investments, Morgan Keegan, The Titans, and Miken/Tanel (our team).
I don't know about the others but we were spotted 5 runs since we were 60 M+ and they were only 50 M+. We beat them by 10 with the wind blowing out.
Most of the games were out of the ordinary, with 20-30mph winds blowing in.
Some outcomes may have been different if the winds would have been blowing out.

Just in general I don't get why so many guys, certainly not all, keep wanting to run from a challenge and just play in as low a level as they can get away with. If they are going to commit the time and money to this, then do it right and take on better teams when you can.

Dirty or who ever you are. In response to your quote it is the general consensus of many on this board that you don't get many things.....if any!

This is another case of a team being bumped because they won a national in another association (SPA). If you check the 2008 All Tournament team against their current roster, you'll see 5 of the players no longer there. At least 6 players from that championship team no longer play on the current team.
At the Winter National having to play up they were the first team eliminated.

This started with a simple question but as usual there is a certain person who simply seems to know everything about everything. The fact of the matter is we have been a major them for the last two years we did by no means dominate at all we were a .500 to .550 team who got hot one weekend in Tulsa. there are no major-plus teams here in Florida (Estes and Deerfield are in the same boat we are and decided not to play)so we are still playing the same teams that we always played in 50 major but now we have to spot them 5 runs or an extra player and our games do not count .So we can't even play in the real tournament.If you check the scores you will see we lost 4 out of five two were to 50 major where we should be one to a 55 major plus who I think will agree with me belong in 55 major and to a very good (and classy) 60 Major Plus team.

Sluggers13. It doesen't matter what you did. Rules are not applied evenly. We played aa for yrs. Win one tourn. [4games decided by 1 run], and are automatically moved up, play 2 tourn at aaa, go 1 and 9, appeal and were told we had to stay aaa. Other teams stay where they are after winning 2, 3, 4, or MORE big tourn. and never get moved. A real head scratcher!!!

Sluggers13, I'll say it again, your team should have been allowed to compete in the Springnationals! It is unfair to make you play exhibition games against other 50/55 teams that have added players and that, no doubt, will be move up to Major Plus in a month or two.
Directors should ignore ratings early in the season and let upper level teams play in the Platinum divisions. When nationals get here then they can decide who will be Major and who will be Major Plus.
In years past there were many more teams playing in the Springnationals. There were enough to have several teams in the Major and also Major Plus division. This year it was mainly a Florida tournament and the director/association should have put Deerfield, Estes, and you in the Platinum division, along with the other six teams, not giving any team 5 runs or 11 fielders (including us).
