I'm looking forward to watching a lot of games, but you know I'm really looking forward to seeing Thunder in their bracket actually. They might surprise people.
Impact and XSV have season rankings due to their appearance at Cup.
Ton Tons have no ranking.

Calling it now. Upton will finish above Ton Tons and Thunder in event 1.
Then, it's off to the Challengers division!

Honestly, I think ton tons are going to finish above 187. No offense to 187, but ton tons have much more experience playing pro, even if it's over the pond. they've been around since what? Mid 90's. 187 is just recently, as of a year or two ago, pro.

that is unless they get tortured with penalties for being a euro team, like joy was.

The refs are trained to be as fair and objective as possible. Hopefully we don't see any of the shenanigans from years past. I'm sure, however, most of the crowd will be behind whoever is playing against the tons tons. 6th man affects officiating in all sports to some degree.

Break down of the brackets:

#1: Favorite to win that bracket based on last season's performance.
#2: Contender licking at #1's heels.
#3: Team everyone wants to see do better.
#4: Team that is not very good and used to "pad" the bracket before they get relegated to Challengers.
#5: Team that is new to the league with no idea how they will do.

I see what you did there PSP. ;-)

I'm not saying it's going to happen, or that refs aren't trained to be objective. But the refs have always been meant to be fair and as objective as possible, no where in any ref certification have they taught you or told you to be subjective, but it happens and there is really no way to prevent it from happening. We can only hope that when the situation comes, and it most certainly will, that the situation is handled fairly and without any bias.

edit: Also to anyone deciding the that the ton tons are destined to the challengers league must not pay attention to millennium, when US teams go over to europe to play the MS they face stiff competition. Half of the people judging ton tons out of the running for the champions bracket are also the people that praise margot like he's the second coming of christ, margot came from the ton tons and I'm sure he wasn't their only strong player. Add to the fact that the ton tons are a well practiced team who already know each others strengths and know how to play with each other when half of the us teams are plagued with changing rosters, coaches, etc.. it really is up in the air as to anyone's performance at dallas.
