    It’s been brought to the leagues attention that some players are questioning how the top 4 seeds were determined. We followed the playoff seeding procedure that was posted on the Message Board on 5/19/24.

    Here is the breakdown –

    #1 – The top 4 teams all had the same record. It was 6-2.

    THREE OR MORE CLUBS
    1. Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games
    among the clubs).
    All 4 teams did not play each other (Wolverines did not play the Arrows) so we move to the next category.

    #2 & #3 – We don’t have Conferences or Divisions (All 4 teams had the same record) – we move to the next category.

    #4 – Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.

    All 4 teams only had 1 common opponent (Flames). The Arrows and Wolverines beat the Flames so they rise to the 2 top seeds. The Allstars and Cheetah’s lost to the Flames so they become the #3 and #4 seeds.

    #5 – Now to determine the #1 and #2 seeds we start from the top of the playoff procedure.

    1.Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games
    among the clubs).
    The Arrows and Wolverines did not play each other.

    #2 & #3 – We don’t have Conferences or Divisions (All 4 teams had the same record) – we move to the next category.

    #4 – Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games.

    The Arrows and Wolverines had the same record amongst common opponents (4-2).
    They played the Allstars, Cheetah’s, USO, Flames, No Limit and Honey Badgers.

    We move to the next category.

    #5 Best points against.
    The Arrows gave up 138 points and the Wolverines gave up 157 points.

    **** Arrows get the #1 seed and the Wolverines get the #2 seed
    _______________________________________________________________________________

    Now we have to determine the #3 and #4 seeds

    2.TWO OR MORE CLUBS
    Head-to-head (best won-lost-tied percentage in games among the clubs).

    Allstars beat the Cheetah’s.

    **** Allstars get the #3 seed and the Cheetah’s get the #4 seed.
