Jeresy Metro team
To the Staff, In the re ratings message under 60 appeals granted the Jersey Metro has been granted and are now AAA. We are playing in Glen Burnie and they are still list as Major. What is the correct rating? Thanks Harry

They messed up on Travelodge 55 too. Their appeal to play Major was denied, yet they are listed as Major rather than Major Plus. Probably just a data entry error.

SSUSA has much going on and these things happen. I wish they would update all the age groups and eliminate the teams that do not exist and all of the duplicate entries. Maybe to help the SSUSA staff, we can all let them know which teams do not exist, and they can look and see all the teams listed twice and eliminate those.

BTW, my former team Double Nickels, 55 Major, does not exist.

Have a nice day!

Andy Smith,
Double Edge,

Gentlemen - No mess up's here ... Both of these team rating notations are correct ...

JERSEY METRO had their appeal to move from 60-Major to 60-AAA granted on July 2, 2010, but subsequently asked to be moved back up to Major ... They added a couple more players that would have resulted in the appeal being denied had they been on the roster at the time the appeal was considered; and

TRAVELODGE 55 had their appeal denied originally because, as reigning 55-Major+ SSUSA 2009 World Champions, they were 'locked into' that rating for the 2010 Season so long as six (6) or more members of that roster remained on the 2010 roster ... Their current roster now has only four (4) members from 2009 as the result of player movement from Travelodge to another team or teams ... They are now classified as a 'new team', rated 55-Major due to the player histories of those few returning players.

As for older and/or inactive teams listed on the rating pages, we maintain those teams for at least two years so as to preserve the player histories, and the team ratings at the time, for curent year roster checking purposes.

Hope this helps ...

Just to set the record straight...we (Jersey Metro) did not appeal our Major rating. We were moved down to AAA based on the performance review by SSUSA Staff. WE have not played very well in SSUSA sanctioned tournaments over the last year. As it turns out the players we thought were going to help retain our Major rating are not going to be playing with us. We will re-evaluate our position based on our performance in Glen Burnie.
