Losing to them is not possible. My concern is that the competition level is dropping off. Promoting the program as an elite program is a complete falsehood. They play at the Tier 1 level any way you slice it.
Looks like the Boston Outlaws dropped out. They played in the Warriors tournament over the weekend and went to the finals. They would have been good competition in the breakout.
The Superseries folks have this down when it comes to the scheduling. They will let any team in as the want the money but what they do when it comes to scheduling is they take each teams ranking from last year and have them play similar rankings to create parity. Just look at the 05 schedule the Vipers do not play any highly rated teams from last year whereas the Philly Little Flyers play all the top ranked teams from last year. Keeps the games competitive and is a good format.
