Tournament & Extra Games

Who thinks an 8 game season is too short? Every team won't play each other. Some rivalries went defunct this season. Well thanks to the rain out we can change all that.

I had this idea tonight and pitched it to some teams who made it out to yard of Ale and Johnny.

Currently with the rain out, out make up game is on Oct 20th and Tournament on Oct 22. Well since this is an 12 team league, let's play 11 games and not 8. That way everyone can play each other. My idea was to add 3 more thursdays to the season (10/27, 11/3 & 11/10) and to play our Tournament on Saturday November 12th.  Who wouldn't want 3 more weeks of Kickball?

Johnny said we would have to pay for fields, yada yada yada. The cost to play 3 extra games and move the tournament to 11/12 is a grand total of $2 per person.   Not per game, that is for all 3 weeks.  Who doesn't have an extra $2 to play 3 more weeks.

What are your thoughts? Would you be down for this?  3 more games, $2, and more thursday flip cup.

Great idea. I will make sure our agent begins negotiations on an extended 3 week Gameday Deal for this season.

I say no, but only because I will be out of town the weekend of November 12th. Itwould be sad to see the Growlers not be there to defend their back to back titles.

Rob said...

Your whole team is away on the 12th?

FRANK said...

I say yes, because Sandra and I will be out of town October 22, and again miss the tournament if it gets pushed back a week. That will be two seasons in a row. if that isnt possible, Id like to keep the schedule how it is, and have a game on a wednesday like we did last season to make up the rainout

Chandler said...

Any date you pick... many people won't be able to attend.

I love that GKB even gives us the choice to discuss this stuff... but we eventually just have to stop and stick to a plan.

Rob said...

Email this out to teams who don't read this

FRANK said...

I know that ppl wont be able to attend either way, which is why i think we should do the makeup on a different day and keep the schedule the way it is, or extend the season.

Joe Marsh said...

Extend to ten games. Hype up the last regular season game for league wide Halloween theme. Play tourney on the 5th. Retains some excitement in the tourney for potentially playing an unscouted team.

Kyle said...

USF Homecoming is Oct. 22...damn you rain, damn you

Orlando Calling is Nov. 12...damn you extended season, damn you

I will be missing the tourney for the second season regardless of which date is picked. The 15th is good though.

FRANK said...

yeah im going to Appalachain State's homecoming on the 22nd

Nate Dawg said...

Well I say no because I will be out of town on Nov 12th. Not sure how many others will be too as FSU plays Miami on the 12th. I was good with either date of Oct 15th or 22nd originally. (Sorry Frank)

Nate Dawg said...

I agree with Chan. Pick something and stick to it. If I cannot make it oh well...I wont cry about it like our future Crystal Pitcher winners...

FRANK said...

I think the only fair way to do it, is to keep the date of the 15th since people already have aligned their schedule for that date..

Nate Dawg said...

I kind of agree with Frank, eventhough it doesnt benefit TBN much. Most of our team cannot make it to the tourney on the 15th due to a wedding...

Alison said...

I'd definitely be down for more games. I'm up for any of those dates. Agree with the sentiment that it needs to be locked down soon, though.

How about...e-mailing the team captains two options (no other room for input), let them discuss it with their team (if they'd like), and then responding with a singular team vote. Majority wins. Just a thought.

Chandler said...

Sounds like something the Alcoballics would do. They'd then forward the email to all 28 of their players... and 15 of their psuedo-players. After a 142 reply-all email email chain threatens to crash the global internets, they'd then all gather at Gorecki's and sacrifice a WAKA shirt to a deflated rubber ball and a bowling pin. The ball and pin would consider the options before announcing their team vote to the masses.

Alison said...

That's why I said captains can discuss it with their teams if they would like!

E-FLO said...

Bing, you makes a true statement. However, you forgot to mention we'd be doing all of this in the hot tub...

Smithkey said...

I would love the chance to get to play every team.

The Todd said...

The Todd abides.

Kyle said...

why stop at 11 games? i want to play every team twice...or maybe even 3 times...if it's only 2 bucks for 3 more games, i'm down to throw in 16.67 for 25 more games...hell, the shockers can keep their 7 minutes at that point.

Rob said...

2 seasons of 4 months each

trinihic said...

lol.. I'm down for more games.. I'm also fine with any date after the 15th of Oct as well.. :) so there is my 2 cents

MuffDaddy said...

Id like to stick to the schedule as planned. What happens if we get another rain out? Just keep pushing the tournament back?

Nate Dawg said...

I think we should just stick with the current schedule also. Talk about adding games to next season...

bull said...

Mike just wants to get his first season under the visor over with!

Litman said...

changing the date is stupid.

Alison said...

Litman, this is happening because of the rainout. Not because of people's trips, other plans, etc. One game was canceled and now needs to be made up before a tournament is played. Simple as that.

This is not the first time, by a long shot, that this has happened and it's not the only league that this has happened in either. Sometimes it's just the way it is. We NEVER got to reschedule the tournament around football or anything else with any other league. Johnny has been working hard trying to accommodate everyone and please as many people as possible. The best thing each person can do is determine with their team how many people can make it on the proposed dates and respond from there.
