: : : : Pool play in the playoffs is just silly. I hope this is a one year and done trial.
: : : : All about money
: : Itís garbage! Itís purely about the money as previously stated and Iíve been saying for years that CIF is more about money than fair competition or anything else. A lot of shady stuff going on with the CIF!
: CIF realizes that all the money making teams are in the top divisions and are probably trying to find a way to get them all more games where they still feel they are playing for a championship. Nobody really cared about the consolation bracket in the open division so by doing this at least there is intrigue for all teams for at least 2 games to draw fans out.
: CIF needs to figure out a new plan for Division 1 because all those teams losing in round 1 would bring in a lot more money if they got to play a 2nd game.
: What might be a idea going forward would be to make the open division a 16 team bracket where they are all play in games to make the Open Division. Have them play their first game before Division 1 starts up. Then have the 8 losers drop into division 1. This would add more games for the top drawing teams.
We HAVE to take care of our friends. Stop complaining or we will keep you out next year . :)
