AA is meant for like 5 to 7.5 point teams. AA is not meant for 9 point teams that have 4 guys that played Major the year before.
The teams this year in the AA finals had much less than 9 points. I don't remember exactly but Xtreme I think was less than 7 points and Maroadi/SNI who won was less than 3 I think. Sports Reach who finished 3rd had like 2 points and Baugh Ford who finished 4th hardly had any points.
