Sorry I haven't been able to post the detailed scores yet, work finally got in the way...lol.
Anyway, not that my opinion matters too much here, but here are my thoughts.
We did say that we would do 3 "flights" from the get go... but that was before we knew
we wouldn't have the same number of teams from the summer session. We had 22 or 23 teams
from summer while we have 21 now, but I think the Sandersons are not "officially" in the fall league.
If they are not, then that makes only 20 teams... 11 Pro and 9 Ams with a real natural break in
divisions makes a LOT of sense to me. Competition for the top 3 spots would be really tight in
both flights if we do two flights.
Again though, Greg (and I) did say that we were doing 3 flights. So I would understand if a few
folks had serious heartburn with doing only 2 after thinking 3 all league. Although, the way we
play shouldn't change regardless of what flights break out to be.
I calculated ratings every week for every team. I analyzed the teams and their ratings from week
to week as well as comparing the ratings to the same teams as summer league, and it is apparent
that there is no sandbagging going on. There are a few anomalies, but these were due to hot
rounds that had nothing to do with where that particular team was in the flights (for either summer
or fall leagues).
Greg and I are quite confident that the breaks, while close for the 3 flight breakout,
as well as if we break out 2 flights this league, is mathematically sound. Based on scores, as well
My opinion is to have two flights, 11 Pro and 9 (or 10 if the sandersons are still in league) for the ams.
BTW, I am donating a lot of plastic for CTPs for the final week of league. One set of discs for the
Pros CTPs and one set for the Ams CTPs. So you will be competing against your own flight for the
CTPs, not everyone in league. How about them apples?
Keep in mind, if no one hits an ace next week (Sept. 22nd), then the final week of league (Sept. 29),
Greg will put put out multiple CTPs for the Ace moneys.... and I just realized, I will NOT be here for it.
DANG IT ! ! ! ! ! But I will be enjoying disc golf here: http://sdgo.se/course.aspx?HoleNumber=1

Please voice your opinion on the flight situation... 2 flights or 3 flights.
Thanks for reading...
