In coming up with the new League Rules & Regulations document (which will be explained later in the State of the TFS), we have been debating a rather important issue for next season regarding postponed & cancelled matches. We are going to move away from the rolling, season-long make up matches that we have been using from the last few seasons, mainly because we want people to be playing and completing their match week in a timely fashion. The old system allowed managers to backload their schedules, creating an uneven distribution of matches, as well as leading to more cancelled matches. This issue becomes more meaningful with the institution of the discipline system to debut this season. The management team has come up with 2 options that we think will work, but we are split on which option to put into effect for next season. The two options are: 1. MID-SEASON & POST-SEASON MAKE UP WEEK In this system, each match week would open and close as it normally would (on Wednesdays, open for a week). At the end of the match week, any remaining unplayed games would be locked. These locked games would then be re-opened during a mid-season "make-up" week, where these games could be played. After that week, the unplayed games would be locked again, and we would continue on with our season. At the end of the season, locked games would again re-open for a one week "make-up" period at the end of the season. After that period, games would be marked as cancelled and we would move on to the next season. 2. ROLLING/CANCEL SYSTEM In this system, each match week would open and close as it normally would (on Wednesdays, open for a week). At the end of the match week, any remaining unplayed games would be moved to a postponed thread, where they would be open for the next 2 weeks, to be played at any point within that time period. Games that are still unplayed after that time frame would be marked as cancelled, and would not be allowed to be made up. Each system has its merits and flaws, and we even came up with a hybrid of the two that might work as well. But before we write it into the league, we wanted to get your opinions on which one (or something we haven't though of yet) you would prefer. Please post here with questions, comments, concerns, ideas and we can discuss this issue further.
