sanctioned leagues
« on: January 05, 2012, 06:21:22 PM »
I read on pdga.com that they will have ratings for league play.  I hope some(if not all) will participate. 

Side note: ww, swope, and rosie should be in every wide open.  Rotate a 4th.

I would be ecstatic if leagues worked towards ratings. It gives people a chance to to work on a rating without playing in a bunch of rated tournaments.

Bad Idea from top to bottom. The league money we spend is for our organization and not the PDGA. If the PDGA wants to run a league, let them come in here and run one. Otherwise, our leagues are fund-raisers for our club.

I'm with Loomis on this one.  For each person that wants to be included in the round rating for a given round, $1 has to be sent to the PDGA.  I think 0.50 goes back to the club, but I'm not a big fan of sending money to the PDGA.  Hopefully in the next year our club can look at doing ratings as well.

I don't think it is a good idea from the stand-point that leagues do not function like tournaments. Flipping discs, picking up gimmes, drinking, etc... It would fundamentally change how most people approach a league, or it would artificially inflate players' ratings from following 'friendly' rules.

About the money going to the PDGA: Would it be a problem if the PDGA weren't taking as much money? Say only .10 or .25 per player?

he says from the corporate office across the street..... :o

I think that we have the makings to have our leagues with ratings already, infact we have done it.  As our wonderful website evolves and we get more members to be able to afford more bells and whistles on the site this is something that will be easy to do.  Just takes time and money.  So lets start with money.  Get more members, and get more players at league! ;D

Hmm, I didn't think about the rules aspect, but that's a fantastic point.

So at our current rate of collecting $1 for each league player for the club, we'd lose 25% of our income from leagues. 

How about this question; would people pay the extra money to get the rating?

Silly for them to ask for more money for this.

Would be a great selling point to increase the membership numbers by including this as a perk for members.

I like that idea, for example, if you are a PDGA member, you can enter your own league scores, and anyone else that is a PDGA member and it calculates already, but hopefully we will have that in our infrastructure soon enough!

What might the minimum # of league propagators be to trend toward some validity?  :P

I can see the turkeys now that DNF to avoid a crappy round rating...even if it has no impact on their player rating.  Yomsain?
