    UPDATED! OMFL Cup Information (Brackets & Groups Posted)

    After discussion among the board, we have decided to make the OMFL Cup Tournament a mandatory event for all owners. Please read everything below for updated event information. After you read, I need you to reply to this thread stating you have read and understand. This should be an AWESOME event. I mean A+ stuff. Going to be a blast!

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To bridge the gap between the end of this season and the release of Madden 11, we are going to be holding a big 'World Cup' style tournament for all interested teams, to be called the OMFL Cup Tournament. We have modified the award structure. Due to our Premier Status here at TF, we now have the ability to create customised 'trohpies' to appear next to your avatar. With that in mind here are the awards/rewards for playing in this event.

    1) The winners of each 'Group' or 'Pool' will get a TF digital trohpy next to their avatar!

    2) The tournament winner will be awarded an actual physical trophy we will purchase will our league funds and ship to the winner. This will be a cool trophy and the first of many physical trophies we will award during the upcoming seasons!

    3) The tournament winner will also get a digital TF trophy next to their avatar!



    We will be dividing the teams up into 'groups' or 'pools'. With 32 teams, there will be 6 total groups, numbers may vary in each group as described below.

    Teams will be placed into groups with other teams of similar records this past season! In other wordss Group A might include Pats, Raiders, Colts, Jags while group B might include Ravens, Jets, Seahawks, Browns. This will be a great way for those of you with less talented teams to have a chance to compete and make it out of Group play and into the Double Elimination Part.

    Here are the fairly straightforward rules for this tournament:
    1) You will play with the default roster for the team you will play with in Madden 11
    2) During group play you will play each other team in your 'pool' ONCE. Tiebreakers will be head to head record (if multiway tie then record combined against all teams involved in the tie), then point differential, then points scored.
    3) The top ONE team out of Groups E & F will advance, and the top TWO teams out of Groups A-D will advance to the double elimination tournament.

    1. You will be able to get your games in at your convienience since there is no advance rate. Example: If I know I am in the same group with Saints, Pats, Eagles then I get with those guys and some time between the beginning of Week 16 and July 20 I need to have played ALL my games. Failure to do this will result in forfeiture of the tournament.

    2. You still start scheduling thread as follows. Title is TEAM NAME - OMFL CUP SCHEDULE, then list the days you have set to play the other teams. You will likely need to go back and edit your initial post. This will make it easier to track by everybody.
    EXAMPLE: Jaguars - OMFL CUP SCHEDULE
    Saints: July 11th, 10pm Pacific
    Patriots: July 16th, 4:30 pm Pacific
    Eagles: July 20th, 10am Pacific

    3. For game results you will start ONE THREAD for the entire pool play. The first post you will list your games and your results. Again this is a post you will need to go back and edit. After that you will post a recap of each game (win or lose). We will be more lenient with shorter recaps since you need to post results win or lose.

    4. All games are to be played in Hawaii, with the team with the last letter in the alphabet initiating the game invite and becoming the defacto 'home' team. This team will then have a chance to choose the location.

    EXAMPLE: Jaguars - OMFL CUP RESULTS

    Post #1

    Saints: Win, 36-7
    Patriots: Lose, 27-20
    Eagles: TBA


    Post #2

    Saints game recap.......

    Post #3

    Patriots game recap......



    DOUBLE ELIMINATION TOURNAMENT RULES (Begins July 20 through August 9)

    1. The bracket will have 4 'Rounds'....there will be an advance rate per round that is posted on the bracket below.

    2. Game results and schedules are to be posted as we normally do during the regular season.

    3. Winners of Group A & Group B will have a bye to round 2 since they only have one team advance out of pool play.

    4. True double elimination format.

    Question about the bracket portion: if 10 teams are making the tournament portion, then wouldn't 6 team's have to get the bye to the 2nd round? I was just toying around on printyourbrackets.com, unless you were going for a different method, check this out here:
