Hey, it might be interesting to compare notes on very worst league playing experiences. As I mentioned on another thread, I was on a spring 3.0 2006 team that lost 0-11 matches. We lost four matches 0-5, and we lost five matches 1-4. I did my part by losing all five of my matches. One-third of the team consisted of 2.5 players who were playing up at 3.0. Our captain became increasingly frustrated and took to complaining directly and loudly to other captains that their computer-rated players were too good and shouldn't be playing 3.0. This caused tense moments in the viewing area, to put it mildly. Despite the fact that we needed all the practice we could get, few players came to practice. This was because practice times kept changing week-to-week. Sometimes Saturday mornings, sometimes Saturday afternoons, sometimes cancelled. Also driving down practice attendance was that players were expected to pay the captain $10 for each practice they attended. The captain did a bit of coaching, so it was only fair that he be compensated, he said. This requirement wasn't revealed until after players had committed to the team. When ratings were adjusted in Nov. 2007, three of our 3.0 players were actually dropped from 3.0 to 2.5. You don't see *that* everyday. Needless to say, the team won't be together for 2007!
