...and your existent logic is not faulty or ridiculous? I thought you had matured a little since you started posting, but I'm seeing some of the "old" colonels in your statements on this. Can't anyone have an opinion other than one you espouse?
I'm tired of seeing important decisions made because of 1 person griping about something that, ironically enough, they lost out on. You're suggesting that seble should look at the poll numbers here...55% yes for 10% of the WIS population isn't ****, certainly not enough to warrant a change in my book, and I'm going to speak out and make it known. The vibe I get here is that you want to send a ticket to Scott and say look at these numbers, change this, and sadly to say, I think he's dumb enough to do it. I'm tired of things being executed here because of one side of an argument.
And yes the logic here is faulty, because by implementing a win requirement, you're inherently alienating and disregarding SOS. I want to better the ranking system (again by which jet's team would have made the PI, with no win requirement mind you) so that Wins and schedule strength are weighed appropriately. The difference in the solutions here are that a lot of you guys want a patch to make up for/excuse an average/poor system while I want to fix the system. Yes the PI is the 2nd tier/lesser tournament, but any time that you suggest to a player to schedule easy (wins) so that you'll get rewarded just because you have a winning record, you're diminishing the challenge and the spirit of competition here...what your argument comes down to is raw wins, so as long as you get your 14 Ws, your 276th rated SOS doesn't matter...and that's dumb.
If people are going to go hard for this thing, you can damn well be sure that I'm going hard against it, because I know I'm being more logical here, I know and understand how ranking systems (should) work because I produce my own. I've thought about and put more effort towards this than any/most of you have, and again to merely want a winning record to be the standard for the PI while disregarding SOS is rather/very naive and short-sighted.
Props to stinenavy, ike1024/isack, and gillispie in this thread as well.
