And point one makes no sense, by the way. You could say this of ANY team. Point two does hold some water. It's a lot less though than you probably think though. Ask some people who have known me for a while.

Just because you could say it about any team, does not take away from the general trueness of it.
And yes, obviously total points is a weak indicator for such things as sim points and all other factors to build a winning team - which you and asavoy certainly have been able to do so far.

Uh... no. You're saying that we are not serious contenders becuase of XYZ - the same XYZ that can be said of every team right now. So no team is a serious contender right now?

Or are you simply saying what he is probably thinking -- right or wrong -- and is not what you think? Let's just wait and hear it from him. I'm curious...

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

well, then I am sorry that I expressed myself too inexplicit/ not accurately enough. What I (not Synergy wink ) was trying to get across, is that it is probably too early in the season to really talk about contenders in definite terms.

But then again, throwing out names and having less than serious debates about them is what is half the fun in this game

EDIT: And if I may say, I like it way better this way, than having only maybe 5 or 6 teams that you could really count as the top teams last season...

True. Understand with that argument though that you cannot logically conclude that Rotlp is a definiter contender either then. And this pretty much sums up my whole position. ROTLP is NOT the number one contender. Right now -- and based on all of the data we have thus far -- we are. We're not going to jump right on a challenge in an effort to "prove" ourselves. We are already doing that.

And have I mentioned yet that season 15 was a long time ago? Wait in line bitches!

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

Speaking of falling out of your chair laughing smile

I feel it is a bit of a contradiction to say things like how these early games don't mean much, and you won't learn much from a win or loss on day 12, combined with saying a 10-0 start makes you the top contender. 

Not sure what season 15 has to do with anything either.  You are a contender because of your knowledge.  We are a contender because of our knowledge combined with a ridiculous TP lead.

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

When did I say that early games don't mean much? When did I say 10-0 makes us a top contender? Again, all I do is post a simple "10-0" as the streak continues. I then ask why others don't see us as top contenders, laugh at their reasons, and clarify what we have done.

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

Oh brother krishna. I said that one game wont tell a complete story. I never said that early games don't mean anything.

"All of the data we have thus far" does not equal the 10-0. It equals the 10-0 PLUS the ranking, schedule, experience, and previous accomplishments. This isn't Death Row (or whomever it was) from a season ago or some college team. We are users have been around for a while on a team firmly planted in pro "A".

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

For the sake of argument, can you outline why (based on that criteria) you would put DG over RotLP.  Also, do you mean the best team now, or the team most likely to win in the end?  I mean I completely agree that you are a contender, just not the #1 contender.  In season 12 I called Guardians early, in season 14 I called CTTF early.  I suppose I would call RotLP early this sesaon for the same reason (previous top team GRs the season before).

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

You didn't krishna. I was simply emphasizing that we're not one of these no name teams that have popped up like this in prior seasons nor one of these bozo college teams coming around thinking they are so good because they have awesome records. We're for real. I can't say that I am disappointed though that you and some others have doubts. By all means, take a day off when you play us. Please. LOL.

I didn't say that I put DG over Rotlp. All I have done here is respond to the comments that the Gents are not a final four contender.

For the futures point of view, yes. You obviously are the favorites. Anybody like yourself that know me however knows that I hate that game - the play for 45 days only for the last three to matter bit. That takes 93% of the fun out of it. We're not in the future. We're in the here and now. And right now the Debonair Gents are the team to beat, not Rotlp.

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

Chek, while though I sympathize with the Gents, I do think you're acting rediculous here. Just accept the damn challenge at settle it on the court.

You kind of have this problem of tooting your horn a bit too much, and it rubs some people the wrong way

This is why I thought you put DG over RotLP.  Can you clarify this statement?

Edit:  And I agree, I don't play for the final 3 days either.  I love the regular season.  If you think you are the team to beat right now, you should welcome all challengers.  If you don't, it basically means you are admitting to beating up on easier teams.

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

One game wouldn't settle it jbob. Plus, I never said that we were better than Rotlp. I simply said that we are the top dog right now and that all of the talk about Rotlp -- and much more, us not being final four contenders -- is assanine.

And read, my friend and proud supporter, I never tooted my own horn. Again, all I do is post our record as the streak continues. They beg for me to join in a discussion. I oblige. I then am called a bragger. Laughable...

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

Just some facts, I cite the S10 Bgirls Lovers who started off the season 20-0, didn't even end up in the final four

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

Yeah but Bgirls always had inactives and stuff.  The Gents will be there, and pretty easily I think.  I can't tell you how wide open things are after CTTF and CSB left.

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

Oh gosh bb. Yes. We are the top contender right now because we are 10-0, have at least four very quality wins, are a team that (I think) has made a final four before and since have added a fairly accomplished season 5 vet (me!) and more TPs.
The futures market? Yes. Again, of course, that's you. You'll probably end up with too much power for anybody to handle, not to mention having awesome users to go along with it.
And again, no. By no means is holding off on challenges and admittance of ANYTHING except that we're happy with our schedule as it is now and content with working on some things internally for now. Plus, why on earth would we risk this streak against the probable number two team in the league? Again, not saying that we would lose... simply acknowledging that this risk is there.

Not gonna lie. No one is bitching here nor is this a DG vs Rotlp thing.
What I do see though is somebody still posting without reading...

Re: Best Team in Each Conference

OK, now I normally don't say too much in the forums as you can tell by my low posts and been having a team since S5 (taking off four seasons S13-S16). I am utterly impressed with how this season has played out thus far. I just read and take everything in and go but alot has been said in this thread.

#1 -- This whole notion about accepting the challenge from ROTLP.

Just like with any team on here, that team at the top would wants to stay at the top. Just going back a few seasons alot of the TOP teams (season in which I took a break from CR)  from which I have looked at all had great records AND ONLY one or two challenges usually somewhere at the latter part of the season.

So what does beating ROTLP prove?? Just because they have been at the top, seasons pasts, does not mean we have to justify ourselves by beating them. People are saying accept the challenge, accept the challenge but I personally will not. ROTLP says they are GR 4 players and thus not at their best which would constitute a win for us. Why would I want to play you when you are not your best....how about when you are at your best then we can go from there.

Hypothetically speaking, lets say that we do accept the challenge and beat ROTLP. Great right....wrong. Then there will be an onslaught of posts that would say we won b/c they were ratting what not or whatever.  (like I was saying I was just hypothetically speaking)

Hell, I am impress with the Gents we have come a mighty long way.

edit: As chek, has stated we are still ironing out some things internally. We are working diligently to make sure our team can make it to the Championship game.
