Looks like a fun tournament. Will schedules be out soon? Hopefully scheduler will work around league games as promised.  Smile

Awful weekend for a tournament. Curious as to why this one got cancelled but Presidents Cup just a little down the road played on. Do GP fields not drain well. Allot of money from the teams down the drain with no points or qualifying.

Question for people running this tournament. When selecting teams who qualified how can you compare points of teams that played 2 games to teams that only had option of playing 1 game due to the weather and game cancelletion. Seems a little lopsided. I noticed in U12 G the 2 teams that qualified played 2 games. if you had compared fairly equal number of games played and first games played you would have had different teams qualify. As 2 teams only played 1 game. How was the winning team that only played 1 game supposed to have more points than a team playing 2 games. In fact, Keegan (who qualified) got 0 points in their first game. 3 other teams got more points in their first game but yet Keegan were allowed to qualify.

Actually I would like to see the response to this also. Seems pretty unbalanced. How do you compare playing 2 games to only playing 1. Seems to be favoritism to the big clubs on this one. I looked up the tournament scores and the qualifying is really wrong. How do you respond to this

Well I am biased since we felt we were not treated fairly on this decision - but I too would like to hear a response  Embarassed 
After all - we are not a "big club" but are a new independent who has fought to get ranking (40's in NTX) and were 2nd highest ranked team on this tourney (02G) and only got to play one game with Saturday getting washed out.  It took two games for other team to get more points than our 1 game played.  Interesting choice of "champions" for sure.  
We look at this as a huge loss ($$) and points - and platinum status due to the rain out.  Should have made this up or moved to another date - especially if this is a true QT. but that's another thread.
And the alleged "at large bids" don't exactly leave my parents/players with the warm and fuzzy either - if we even get that - since we have not heard from ESPN Copa that it will be the case.  Far as I am concerned - no one qualified - or qualification should have been on level play - 1st game only.. Since not everyone got to play 2.

Mike?

I am wondering why no one in this group is showing any respect for any of the teams playing in this tournament in particular the one above. It is a fair question to ask. I have seen this team play and they are a very good team. Is there a reason to not share this info? How do 2 teams qualify that it took 2 games to gather more points than a team only ALLOWED to play one game. You are a reputable group and usually put on great tournaments. Well respected. How about an answer please?

It is not a big club small club "thing" as you are suggesting, there is a bigger picture here. ESPN has now opened up the girls side of this event with U11-14 age groups. In the past it was a boys only tournament until last year.
The championship will have 8 girls teams competing for the title 6 spots thru QT stages ( only 5 qualified ) and 3 at large bids.
The teams that were advanced had nothing to with number of games played or point acquired but the playability of the teams that entered, to the already qualified qt teams and the over all picture of the championship. We only had two spots to give from this event.The records of those teams from the current leagues that they play in speak for themselves.When an event is rained out before completion and we are faced with an uneven number of games played we must advance someone knowing someone will not agree with our decision.
However I agree Shamrock United is an up an coming team this is why we recommended them for an at large bid into the championship, the final decision on this is with ESPN.

Hope this answers your concerns however if you still feel strongly feel free to contact me

"The teams that were advanced had nothing to with number of games played or point acquired but the playability of the teams that entered, to the already qualified qt teams and the over all picture of the championship."

What does that mean? Does that mean they totally disregarded the partial tournament results and picked what they thought were the best/top ranked teams based on past performance?

It means that it didn't matter who did what in the tournament. For a tournament where classic teams were not supporsed to be part of the picture--see rules--its interesting that a LH D2 team qualified. They picked who they wanted regardless. Doesn't bode well for this tournament in the future. Teams beware of spending your $$$ on this one.  Mad

Who is a LH D2 team? Liverpool Keegan is an Arlington team playing up in the 01 division and FC Dallas East is a Plano 2 team.

Just asking

You must not be looking in the right place. if you look on the tournament qualifying page, they are listed as qualifying under U12 along with Mutiny from the Jan/Feb tournament. pretty easy to see as it shows all teams qualifying.

And as for comparing schedule......Keegan lost their first game to FC D East. Won the second game against 03 team. Wow great competition.

it is what it is. Obvious favortism. I suggest all be careful of future tournaments.
