Currently, ASSL has five playoff or post season teams. This consists of each division winner plus the next two teams with the best overall records.
This proposal will add a third wildcard team to the post season consisting of the team with the third best overall record that did not win a division.
Note: All three wildcard teams may come from the same division.
The six teams and their seeding will consist of:
#1 Seed Division Winner with best record
#2 Seed Division Winner with second best record
#3 Seed Division Winner with third best record
#4 Seed Best record of non-division winning teams (Wildcard team #1)
#5 Seed Second best record of non-division winning teams (Wildcard team #2)
#6 Seed Third best record of non-division winning teams (Wildcard team #3)
In case of a tie for a division winner OR the last wild card team, a one game playoff will be scheduled to take place IMMEDIATELY after the end of the regular season. All other ties for seeds will be decided by head-to-head records.
Note: Before voting you may wish to consider the proposed post season playoff structure which will follow in a separate poll.
