    So should we have a quick knockout tournament for all the folks in all the leagues who didn't make it to the CL or Europa League Tournaments so we can stay sharp for Season II as well as give guys a chance to play with their new sides?

    Rich,

    In case this is something you think we should roll with, and we have time to complete it, here are the members that I quickly put together that I don't believe are in the Europa or Champions League tournaments. They are separated by TL Red & TL Black.

    Black

    GovernedSpy(y)
    Jon MK(y)
    MoonBBad(y)
    Michael Woodward:(
    bigdood33
    BRUCE80
    Danthraxxx
    hammerhead1010(y)
    mcyork(y)
    BigManOnCampus0(y)

    Red

    MasterCollin
    elprez98(y)
    RynoAid
    Colemanchu(y)
    JFace907(y)
    abolishthefed
    DaMeffodMan:(
    Gubmntcheez
    makinpropel
    kgx2thez
    Pagamer07(y)

    If this list is off I apologize... Anyways, looks like we have 19, hopefully I missed one person and we can get an even 20 teams. I am thinking doing a random seeding so a Red Team plays a Black Team in the first round if possible, or we can just do a two sided bracket and lump the Black on one side and the Red teams on the other side. That way we can have a Red v Black final. Just some ideas.

    Depending how much time we have we might have to require that if you want to do this tournament you're going to have to get in a game a day or a game every two days or face disqualification. This is just a small side tournament and I don't think it would be wise to have it spill over to the start of the regular season.

    IN = (y)
    OUT = :(

    Before anyone gets the wrong idea, this was more of a thread directed towards The Richuation

    I know he was talking about doing something like this, but nothing happened, so I just wanted to start a thread for him so he can bless it, see what direction he thinks it should go, etc. I wasn't going to be the ringleader behind it.

    Some guys do not have their teams for Season 2.... but go ahead and run with it. I have my hands full with the CL and EL and team changes at the moment.

    Alright we have the green light for this. Do to the time crunch if you're interested please post in this thread.

    Couple of rules:
    1. Only use your league team
    2. Game settings are the same as champions league knockout round settings
    3. We move fast! Advance every two days if not faster

    That's all I can think of for now. Once I know who's in I will do the bracket. Seeding will be random with black teams on one side red on the other.

    Let me better clarify the way the game setup should be. Two 90 min halves then two overtime periods followed by penalties if need be. We are NOT going to do two games per round. Just one winner moves on.

    I will be using a random number generator to assign seeds for the tournament. So it will go something like this (these aren't the real teams but you get the point):

    Black Bracket
    Newcastle
    Tottenham
    Sporting KC
    Fulham FC
    Ajax
    Celtic
    LA Galaxy

    Red Bracket
    PSV Eindhoven
    Liverpool
    Valencia
    Sevilla
    Boca Juniors
    Marseille
    Wolfsburg

    Once the teams are listed I will have the random number generator give me a number between, in this case, 1 & 7 since there are seven teams on each side (if it's an even number of teams on both side, whoever gets drawn number one will get the first round bye).

    Once I get the numbers it will look something like this:

    Black Bracket
    Newcastle 4
    Tottenham 3
    Sporting KC 1
    Fulham FC 5
    Ajax 7
    Celtic 2
    LA Galaxy 6

    Red Bracket
    PSV Eindhoven 7
    Liverpool 1
    Valencia 5
    Sevilla 3
    Boca Juniors 6
    Marseille 2
    Wolfsburg 4

    Then the first round will look something like this:

    Black Bracket

    1 Sporting KC BYE

    2 Celtic v 7 Ajax
    3 Tottenham v 6 LA Galaxy
    4 Newcastle v 5 Fulham FC

    I think you get the jest of it. I will be doing this just like the NCAA tourney.

    I don't want this to spill over into the season so it will depend when that season is slated to start which is why this is going to move at a face pace. The Richuation when do you anticipate season two starting?

    I am going to be closing registration for this tonight around 8pm central time. If we don't get enough people we won't do it. We're going to need more to make this tournament worthwhile. We have 9 days till the start of the new season. There will be a strict two day advance window because of this. If that makes things more difficult then you might want to bow out now, we don't have the time to advance at any slower of a pace.
