A quick question for those vets of shark leagues. I know that the last two teams get relegated to a lower shark league. Is this based on our record as it stands now, or is it based once playoffs are done? If I remember correctly, those of us in the playoffs still play, but not really for anything.
I'm not a big time vet, but.....
From the rules (I put in the caps and the underline):
"Where applicable, to determine the top two and bottom FOUR
teams to move up and down the ladder:
1) The teams that descend will be the bottom four non-playoff teams in each league determined by worst winning percentage and then lowest total points. Ties after that will be broken by head-to-head winning percentage. After that, ties will be broken by a coin flip.
2) There will be two teams that ascend from every league. The League Champion, and the team with the highest regular season total points through 13 weeks. Please note that the total points winner does not have to make the playoffs to advance. Should there be a tie for that spot, first overall winning percentage, and then head-to-head winning percentage will be followed, and after that will be a coin flip. In the case where the League Champion is also the league total points winner, the runner up in the championship game will move up."
So Broad St Bullies who came on like gang-busters to beat me out of the points lead in Week 13 (grats on a GREAT JOB), is one team that will go up a level.
The other team to go up will be the team that takes the Championship by winning the playoffs, which start this week and run through Week 16.
Hope that helps clear up any question you might have.
It can be confusing, to say the least but I feel it is a fair way to do it.

By the way, I think you have a GREAT team name.
