Any update on the Burnaby UBC game? Likely postponement of the score by someone on purpose. Maybe scores expire and change the result if not reported immediately ? Some great content today
Twas a warm eve in August
When the Greencaps first did meet
New faces and new visas
A chance for all to greet
But this year will be different,
Our trusted manager says
We can’t afford suspensions
No yellows or no reds
As we have a reputation
For being too aggressive
And talking shite to referees
At times, it is excessive
“It’s not always our fault though Liam”
One club stalwart replies
“You can’t touch a player these days
Without them dropping like flies”
The season started poorly
We lost 5 on the trot
We did ourselves no favours
By drinking beer a lot
Bank holidays always killed us
We’d play with half a team
Some lads playing hungover
The smell of beer, obscene
Bottom place at Christmas
To most it must look bleak
But not for The Mighty Greencaps
As one pub had belief
They called themselves the Ivanhoe
Located right on Main
They’d welcome us with open arms
Through wind, hail or rain
“You’ll get the points, don’t worry”
The hostess she did shout
“You are The Mighty Greencaps
Survival is no doubt”
To our surprise, the girl was right
2020 started well
We began to climb the table
But in relegation still we dwell
But a faithful night in January
We played a team in Surrey
We scored a pen and won the game
And the Ivanhoe got blurry
A defining moment for the Caps
The lucky break we needed
That night we knew we would survive
And sure enough, succeeded
For we are The Mighty Greencaps
In case you have not heard
Na Capíní Glas will rise again
Next year we will come third
A bonus verse for those still reading
A shout out for two players
3 sheets are clean for Alastair
Alan Kenny has 10 goals and is getting married in May we wish all the best. This verse didn’t rhyme at all did it?
Promotion/relegation between teams tied on points is always a playoffWhat happens if two teams or more finish the season on 43 points? Is there a tiebreaker or a playoff?
If it was a playoff between Lupi and Metro, because Lupi can't go up would Metro be awarded promotion?
That is just one of many VMSL rules that should be changed. A play-off game should be played only if two (or more) teams are tied after every tie-breaker.Promotion/relegation between teams tied on points is always a playoff
6.2. In the event of two teams having the same number of points at the end of the league schedule, and providing that this situation affects the promotion or relegation of teams, a one game playoff on a neutral ground shall take place. In case of a tie, two 15 minute extra time periods will be played, followed by penalty kicks if needed. Field and referee costs as well as field set up will be shared by the teams and the CAT system and league suspensions will be in effect.That is just one of many VMSL rules that should be changed. A play-off game should be played only if two (or more) teams are tied after every tie-breaker.
In a league competition there has to be a tie-breaker (most importantly goal difference then goals for).
You could certainly add more tie-breakers (i.e. games between tied teams only, number of wins, etc.) but you should never annul all tie-breakers as it is a case in VMSL (basically only number of points count).
You're doing that thing again where you present your opinion as being the most obvious thing in the world and that the league is behaving almost diabolically for not seeing things your way...Yes, that is the rule dezza mentioned.
Under 5.3 VMSL has a tie-breaker (see below) but it is used only if the Board of Directors feels that there is not sufficient time to complete the round-robin playoff.
There is no need for the Board of Directors to make that decision. Tie-breakers should be used irrelevant of whether the teams are tied for a promotion or relegation. That is what the league competition is for. Only if the teams are still tied after every tie-breaker (a - e) is applied a play-off game should be played.
(a) Total points in games played among tied teams.
(b) Goal difference (goals for minus goals against) in games played among tied teams.
(c) Goal average (goals for divided by goals against) in games played among tied teams.
(d) Average goal difference in all games played.
(e) Goal average in all games played.
No issues with you having an opinion and yes TTP is the perfect place for it. Love a good discussion.Canucks4Ever,
Yes, I'll agree with you that AGM is appropriate place to recommend changes but I also have every right to say here what I think about certain rules.
When it comes to a league competition all I am saying is that a tie-breaker is needed in order to avoid anyone making an administrative decision whether a play-off game can or cannot be played.
Playing a play-off game at the end of a season is, in your opinion, a chance to earn a spot on merit at the end of the season but for me the merit should be a whole season.
One team could have both wins during the season against the main opponent, have much better goal difference, etc. and then play a play-off game against the same team they already beat twice. At least that tie-breaker should be always taken into consideration.
This is Division 1 thread yet you find a weird reason to bring Div 2 team into this discussion.On a side note, while I know you are not "affiliated" with if FC Serbia, but if they wanted to play in Premier I am willing to bet that they could get a spot in the FVSL and would be competitive. Would LOVE to get your thoughts on how that league is run/makes decisions....
Let me step up an apologize if I have offended you, because that genuinely was not my intent. I was trying to take the piss out of the way you post your "opinions" on here, but that was only because, to be honest, I feel they come off as disrespectful (an example of an "opinion" of mine).This is Division 1 thread yet you find a weird reason to bring Div 2 team into this discussion.
At least this time you didn't "accuse" me that I am trying to "help" somebody (Westside in this case) to earn a promotion without a play-off game so that is quite refreshing.
Banking on a decent amount of TL;DR I will reproduce a section of the above here re: Playoff RulesI’m with Red Star on this one. Seems like a highly subjective rule when there’s a pretty easy way to keep it objective (ie clear cut tiebreakers rather than a “do we feel like playing a playoff” clause) and just because the leagues membership isn’t clamouring for change doesn’t mean it’s a good rule.
While we’re at it, the yellow card accumulation rules are outrageous!
