Actually, I would imagine dizzl and many of his teammates will get bumped up to 4.5.
Since they will then have no chance of making playoffs, that will mercifully free them of all this nonsense, and allow them to focus on enjoying good challenging regular-season matches.

any1 who makes sectionals 3yrs in a row are prolly sandbaggers anyway, just smart enough about it 2 avoid gettin bumped
Much as it pains me to do so, I agree with TT
