Q: When are the Playoffs exactly?
A: B Playoffs are on November 13th. The A playoffs are the following weekend on the 20th.
Q: Who makes the B playoffs?
A: All the B teams! Literally every one of them. There will not be any A teams joining the B bracket this session. So 8 is enough.
Q: So what happens after the B playoffs?
A: The winner and ONLY the winner advance/survive to play in the A’s.
Q: Why not the runner-up like in years past?
A: Because of the odd number of teams this year. The math sadly just doesn’t work out. This makes the B championship actually mean something.
Q: So it didn’t before?
A: Of course it did, but now only one team plays on so it’s balls to wall for the one spot.
Q: Ok. What about eligibility issues?
A: What about em?
Q: Are you being Socratic?
A: Are you threatening me?
Q: Ok fine I digres. How many games do my guys need in order to be allowed to play?
A: 3 for vets and 4 for youngins’
Q: What’s considered a vet?
A: Anyone who has logged at least 2 sessions in the Blitz.
Q: And a “youngin”?
A: A freshmen or a sophomore
Q: Let’s say one of my sophomores only has 3 games played/attended. Is there any way he can play?
A: If the said player is in the A’s, then yes actually. All he needs to do is come to the B tournament and watch a game. Say ‘sup.
Q: How do I know who is or isn’t eligible?
A: If you click on your team page, your roster will only show eligible players.
Q: Interesting. I don’t have anymore questions for you. Do you have any questions for me?
A: No. I do not.
Q: Well I guess that’s it.
A: That’s it then.
Q: Oh I do have another question actually.
A: Sorry I’m not prepared to answer any more questions.
Q: One more?
A: That was one more.
Q: I guess it’s not important. No one is still reading this anyways.
A: But if they are, they’re probably getting annoyed that we’re just blabbering on about nothing.
Q: Well, I mean it’s not anything different than your weekly podcast.
A: Ok ok. Let’s just end it by saying, good luck to everyone and bring your A game.
Q: Or B game.
A: Or A game for the B’s.
Q: That concludes our annual sit down with the commissioner with burning playoff questions. See you all on the field for the B playffs!
