    a certain person says: (someones opinion)

    that a certain team smashed Smith's 2nd placed league opponent when there team was at full strength and Smith got smashed by 8 wickets by them how does that justify that seeding?

    Anyway as Adam said there is no real need for seeding if your going to take the top four out of the competition. Really if you good enough you will be able to beat the other sides in your group. Basically the seeding become meaningless just give teams an easier draw, when there is no real need for it.

    Also you still got guys like Rob, in the draw who haven't signed up. But then no Pete who won the cup a couple seasons back. Really should just wait a bit longer before making any draws. There still a fair few active BT players who haven't signed up yet.

    The only point in seeding the groups was to try and keep them all roughly of the same standard, thereby, in theory at least, giving everyone the same chance of qualification. From the knock-out stage it's entirely random anyway.

    Man alive! I'm beginning to realise how it must feel to be Rodgie now!:-) This is entirely my own opinion, and I'm perfectly happy for someone else to take it on if I've got it all arse-backwards - Like I say, I don't have the experience of the previous CW Cups, and I don't want to storm in and start taking over your competition.

    I also didn't rig the seedings to offend anyone or give anyone an advantage, it's how I see the relative strength of the teams, perhaps some are seeded above their ability because they're better self-publicists on the BT thread? However I do believe that past results isn't necessarily the way forward either, as morale and TFL mean that teams' potential fluctuate wildly between one season and the next.

    But at least I've got you all out of the woodwork, it's been dead lately!

    Off to find my hard hat! Trev

    ****, forgot PY, he'll be in won't he? Guess he's still in the Cup? As a Div I side, I guess he's got a claim to be an A seed? Might have to jig things about a bit.

    The 4 current A seeds are still all better than Boggles.

    I think seeding would be a bit too hard. It'd be best to just go with random groups. It can be assumed that anyone left in the cup would be a pretty gun team, so if we start before they're out, they can get byes till they're out.

    Yeah I totally agree Scaly. Guess it depends how he's going in the Cup. If he's going to be tied up for a while then I was thinking of him becoming an A Seed in addition to the other four, rather than instead of. This would mean something like the worst performing second place side from the groups being knocked out. If he's able to start in the groups then I'd just re-jig the B seedings

    Haha, I knew you'd put the boot in (fairly).

    I'm in when I lose in the cup which could be 2/3 weeks time.

    My ratings last game on TIE were:

    Code:
    		Boggles
    Top Order: 	superb
    Middle Order: 	respectable
    Lower Order: 	worthless
    Seam Bowling: 	superb
    Spin Bowling: 	superb
    Fielding: 	woeful
    Bowling goes up a level in both on a normal.
