Re: For Cool and Calm Discussion Major/AA/A classifications
Joe that is a good idea with the exception of "on field results". There has to be some type of parameter set based on rostered players and performance (not necessarily results) on the field. If you go by results, there will end up being teams lose on purpose or not play in certain events. I will use us as a perfect example. We had top 5 seeding all the way up until the Smoky this year because we played a lot early to set ourselves up that way. We didn't capitalize on it though. Had we won just 1 game at the Last Chance, we would have qualified for the Major without ever playing a Major team the ENTIRE year! Probably never happened before and it really isn't even an accomplishment. There is absolutely no way we should have been in the running for a spot in the MWS. You have to limit that tournament to the TOP 16 teams in the country.
