here is my entry for said rule
During Quarter-Finals through Finals, no one series (best of 3) shall be allowed to end in a tie. If a best of 3 match is tied at the end of 3 games, a 1 on 1 game will be played to determine the winner. If a team refuses to take the field for this 1 on 1 game that team would be disqualified and the next placing team shall be granted the right to play for the place in which the refusing team would have had. The next ranking team will play a best of 3 series, with the winner of that series advancing, or becoming division champions.
In this case, where both Ironmen and Impact refused to play the game (yes, lets not mix words/emotions here, they in essence refused to play a game) that The Hurricanes and Image would then play for 1st and 2nd place. Will this rule ever come in to play? Probably not. Even if it did, its not like the NPPL would stick to it. I mean, they didn't stick to the rulebook for this tournament, why start with a new rule?
