We have one post-season week under our belts now. Two teams -- and four participants -- have been eliminated, and we're down to the Final Four!
Everyone has been re-ranked now, based on their performance in the Divisional Semi-Finals. The Regular Season standings are thrown out, except as a tie-breaker. Only the top four participants -- that is, schooner11, thescotsman, Ryooon, and USAspike6 -- advance to the Divisional Finals. Once again, everyone is welcome to post their picks, but only these four will have their picks count.
Again, the deadline is midnight Friday night. All picks must be in by that time; as usual, late picks will not be accepted.
A maximum of 2 people may pick each team. In spite of this, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE pick the teams you WANT! Just because you're not in the top two does NOT mean you won't get your teams. If more than two pick any team, I will make the changes, with preference given to the higher-ranked participants. Which teams each participant gets will be posted as a reply to this thread as soon as possible after midnight Friday night, but definitely before game time Saturday. Once again, PLEASE do not let this rule affect your selections!
After this week's games, you will be re-ranked according to this week's results, with ties broken by the Divisional Semi-Final results, then by the regular season standings. It is possible to be ranked #4 this week and #1 next week (and vice-versa.) The top two participants will qualify for the Grey Cup next week.
Here are the games for the Divisional Finals:
Edmonton @ Montreal
B.C. @ Calgary
