I have a suggestion to help get more teams interested in higher division. Instead of having a cash payout based on the number of teams in each division, GFOA could split the total cash payout 50% open, 30% D4 and 20% D5.
That would certainly get strong teams looking at upper divisions. Just my 2 cents, and I'll share 10 cents for free.
^^ thats a good idea, that's how leagues traditionally had done the prizes
Also for open tomorrow, I think the best format would be for the prelims to count and use them as a semi finals since everyone plays everyone equally. Then the top 2 play each other for first and bottom two for third in a best of 2.
It would be beyond stupid to have us play 6 prelim games for nothing and then all 4 teams play round again in finals.
