Cfoa Rookie ?????

Hello guys and gals, it looks like there will only be 59 teams at River Jam. That means that only 16 teams will go on into the quarterfinals. I had a thought last night. If all of the captains agree we can request that the CFOA will allow 24 teams be accepted to continue into the quarterfinals. Thats 8 more teams that have a chance at first place instead of going home after 6 games. Post your thoughts good or bad. I for one would like to see the extra teams. My opinion though.

I dont know....Its a tough decision.

If you leave it the way it is, yes only 16 teams will make quarters but 2 teams out of each quarters bracket will advance to semis. If you change it only 1 team out of each quarters braket will advance to semis. I kinda like it with only 16 teams advancing because of the way quarters brackets will be. But there was nothing wrong with the 24 teams way either, Tough decision.

i believe taht all the teams have a fair shot at making the semis. they all have games that they could win. 16 or 24, just play your games and win, if you do that you have nothing to worry about.

I personally like to see 24 go, but after talking with someone who is obviously more knowledgeable about such matters I have reconsidered my position and think 16 is best. Take care of business during prelims and you don't have to worry about going home early.

59 teams is better than 61 in my opinion...

24--8--4 24 is a two game advance (61+)

16--8--4 all are 3 games... (under 60)

If you can't get in the top 16 of 59 (27% of the field)...did you really deserve to move on...24 of 59 meets 40% of the field moves on...and you get 2 games verus 3 games...a lot of people where complainting about 2 games in quarters...

my 2 pennies
