    Okay, the news you've been waiting for, the postseason begins on Tuesday.

    This thread is only for the players who qulaified for either the promotion playoffs or the Champions League/Cup.

    Any new players who wish to join are welcome to do so in Crew Sheep League Season VIII, which will begin after the New Year.

    Due to there being no Champions league after season 5 or 6 also, the following players are all eligible for the current competition:

    Season V
    Champions League: beast01, Hamburgler03, CrewBeat, ZipSix
    Champions Cup: TonyDanza, 110toyourleft, DrunkandDisorderly, Nostradumass

    Season VI
    Champions League: DrunkandDisorderly, Nostradumass, beast01, CrewBeat
    Champions Cup: ZipSix, foozer, 110toyourleft

    Season VII
    Champions League: DrunkandDisorderly, foozer, ZipSix, beast01
    Champions Cup: 110toyourleft, Crewster, Hamburgler03

    As you can see, a number of folks qualified for both the Champions League and the Champions Cup. You cannot be in both. Those players must declare for either one or the other, either by posting your choice in this thread or by sending me a PM. Logically, the Champions League is the better choice, but theoretically, the Champions Cup might be easier to actually win, due to fewer players (possibly) and theoretically lower-scoring participants. (And of course the fact that TonyDanza is unlikely to play, though he's welcome, naturally.)


    Here's the list of the 18 players eligible to send in answers in this thread---

    Champions League:
    beast01, CrewBeat

    Champions Cup:
    TonyDanza, 110toyourleft, Crewster

    Both Champions League and Champions Cup:
    Hamburgler03, ZipSix, DrunkandDisorderly, Nostradumass, foozer

    Division Two Promotion Playoffs:
    DAK77, jackmann, DhamphirLoki, DaKeeperMan

    Division Three Promotion Playoffs:
    danndamanny, puttputtfc, Swellster, chr1st



    And of course, the people who've qualified for both the Champions League and the Champions Cup need to pick one or the other. If you wish to keep your choice private so as not to influence others, feel free to PM me.


    The first of 3 rounds of questions will be posted in this thread on Tuesday.

    The world, as far as the Mayan's are concerned, ended almost a thousand years ago, so they were way off in their predictions.

    Onward to the Champions Cup (I dont think a formal repsonse is required by me because I only qulaified for the Cup).

    F5 Thursday feels slightly less F5-ish.

    I have an odd question. Does anyone know how this got started and when? Was it strictly for Big Soccer or did it come from somewhere else? Just curious really.
