-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: To those who are still not familiar on how your team will achieve the National Championship, here is the simple explanation.

A team must qualify to join the SiBoL 2012 Season which is divided into 5 rounds, namely; P,Q,R,S,T

P-Season or Preliminary Rounds (A.K.A) Pre-season
Q-Season or Qualifying Rounds consisting of 8 Divisions or 64 teams
R-Season or Regular Season consisting of 4 Groups of 8 or 32 teams
S-Season or Star Season consisting of 4 groups of 4 or 16 teams
T-Season or Top 4 Season (A.K.A.) Final 4. (with $1200 cash prize)

Two ways to qualify to join.
1. Seeding (e.g. Top teams)
2. Franchise

*Seeding;  All top 2 teams in the standings of each round will automatically qualify for next round listings. There will be a draw to determine the group they will play next. Teams in the same division during previous rounds should not be in the same group again (this is to avoid too much exposure playing with same teams for a long period of time that often cause rivalry that ends up in fights). 

*Franchise; teams with good track records, able to contribute fees on time can apply in order to challenge in the next round. (Though we try to help to look for league sponsors to lessen up the team fees, we can't let you play for free. We help but we are not charity. If you are a player, expect to contribute at least $50 for your team before playing. If you wanna play you pay. Consider this as "Reward for Yourself". Complete all payments within first 3 games then you'll get full schedule up; the league will run smoothly. If you insist on paying installment, sorry but your schedule will be installment too. Worst if you would tell us that you would pay every payday, because we will give schedule every payday too. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Deadline of Registration for Regular Season: 15th of July
Deadline of Reservation fee: July 1.

 

 

 

 



Saturday, May 12
A note from Commissioner SPUD EDUARTE:



Playoffs begin the week of May 26th for all divisions except for Eastern and Aviation.. Eastern and Aviation Playoffs start up Sunday, July 8th. Schedule will be posted on May 12, 2012.  

 

Some teams and divisions might play 2 consecutive week. Players who play on more than one team might have conflicts; nevertheless, once the playoff committee sets the schedule, even if there are inequities or conflicts, no postponements will be permitted.To be fair to everyone, playoffs are scheduled "blindly", without regard to individual teams scheduling preferences.

For purposes of playoff seedings, we added back all losses that result from excluded (unpaid) teams, revised the standings accordingly and then created the seedings in the usual manner i.e. Wildcards 3 vs 6, 4 vs 5,  etc. In so doing, teams were seeded more closely to their respective strength and we hope, more fairly. Please note numbers following each team's name in the pairings reflect the revised win-loss totals upon which the seedings were based. Teams with the same standings were seeded in accordance with standard tie-breaking procedures.

The playoffs always bring heightened intensity and competition, so the League must restate and enforce its standards of conduct and rules regarding eligibility. Please review our policies in these areas and call us if you have any questions regarding a player's eligibility. Also don't forget the rule which requires a player to have played in at least ONE (1) regular game to be eligible for the playoffs. This is not the time to bring in "ringers."

If we find that a team has intentionally manipulated or broken League rules, we will have to rule against you to maintain the integrity of the playoffs. Penalties can include forfeited games and even permanent barring of players and teams from the League. Don't embarrass your team, your club, and the League. All of us want the players to decide the outcome of the game, not the League!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL TEAMS!
