: CIF has lost it's collective mind. It is obvious some leagues are much more dominate than others.

The .500 rule was around until about 2006 in the form of an 11-win rule that was adopted after the 1998 season.

I know a playoff team from this timeframe who lost their final league game seemingly on purpose, eliminating one of their playoff rivals on the last day of league. Six team league, and the loss ensured a team from another division occupied the third and final "AQ" berth.

Both league games between the rivals had been dogfights, the second being a near "malice in the palace" situation...so what coach in their right mind would try to win a meaningless game and help a top 10 team (in their playoff division) they had faced twice already?

This is why I favor as many teams in the playoffs as possible, at least from a fan's standpoint.
