Proposed deletion of Reid Schmitt[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Reid Schmitt has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Article about a footballer who fails WP:GNG and has not played in a fully pro league.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Mikemor92 (talk) 01:19, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Nomination of Reid Schmitt for deletion[edit]

A discussion is taking place as to whether the article Reid Schmitt is suitable for inclusion in Wikipedia according to Wikipedia's policies and guidelines or whether it should be deleted.

The article will be discussed at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Reid Schmitt until a consensus is reached, and anyone is welcome to contribute to the discussion. The nomination will explain the policies and guidelines which are of concern. The discussion focuses on high-quality evidence and our policies and guidelines.

Tucson Extreme[edit]

While I'll concede that the Tucson Extreme website and lack of Facebook page make it appear that Tucson has quietly imploded, do you have a reliable source for this edit removing them from the list of expansion teams? If so, I'd like to use it to update the Tucson Extreme article. If not, on what do you base your assertion that the club has folded? - Dravecky (talk) 08:27, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

2013 NPSL Season[edit]

Hey Groucho, this is Sparty1301, I'm just wondering where you got the 4-3 score for Detroit City FC vs AFC Cleveland. The correct score was 3-1 Detroit City FC. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sparty1301 (talkcontribs) 03:32, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

Hi Sparty1301. I thought I typed in a 3-1 score too. Must have got it confused with the South region score RVA FC over Jacksonville FC 4-3. Thanx for the correction.GrouchoPython (talk) 03:59, 14 July 2013 (UTC)

No problem. Go City FC!

PDL division standings templates?[edit]

Thanks for contributing the excellent 2014 PDL conference standings tables. I'd like to include just the Mountain Division standings in the 2014 FC Tucson season article which would require creation of sub-templates for each division. What do you think? I would be happy to break them all out but thought I would ask you what you think as you are the creator and have been making all the updates.

Usually, I would wait until the season was over and paste the division table in the article. But if you can add a self-updating sub-template to the page, go right ahead. And thanx.GrouchoPython (talk) 16:00, 20 May 2014 (UTC)

I hope the new break-out isn't too painful to update. I floated the [v t e] links for each division on the right to get them out of the way.Gatomasgordo (talk) 17:38, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

USL Tie Breaking Criteria[edit]

The USL Pro standings table has listed that GD is the 2nd tiebreaker criteria after points; however the USL's official standings seems to use pts, Wins, GD, instead. (Thus Wilmington is ahead because they have 8 wins while Rochester only has 7 even though Rochester has a better GD). Do you know if this is documented? If it is we should update the template so that it properly reflects the this criteria. --Trödel 14:23, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

The 2014 USL Pro Media Guide (available online) Tie-Breaker procedure says this:

Standings tiebreakers

The breaking of ties in the final league standings, playoffs and finals is accomplished by applying the following criteria, listed in order of importance:

The following two guidelines will be followed during the implementation of USL tiebreakers for all ties involving three or more teams:

1) The tiebreaker will determine the winner first.

2) The tiebreaker will continue to be followed in order to determine the ranking of the remaining teams without restarting from the beginning.

1) Head-to-head record based on total points in league games

2) Total wins in league games

3) Goal difference in league games

4) Goals scored in league games

5) Total points within smallest grouping. If number of games is unequal, then point percentage will be used.

6) Ranking based on points earned against top four group finishers. This tiebreaker will not be used if four or fewer teams comprise the group. If number of games is unequal, then point percentage applies.

7) Point percentage outside/smallest division or conference in League games

8) Total points in all regular season and Open Cup Qualifying games combined. If number of games is unequal, then point percentage applies

9) FIFA Fair Play – Team with fewest disciplinary points in League games. (If number of games is unequal, points will be divided by games played to arrive at a common basis for comparison.)

10) Lottery conducted by USL at league office Point Percentage: number of total points earned / maximum possible points (3 per game)

  • Should more than two teams involved have played each other an UNEQUAL number of times, this tiebreaker will be skipped.
  • Group: term used to describe the primary unit in which a team competes (i.e. PDL – Southwest Division)
  • Point Percentage: number of total points earned / maximum possible points (3 per game)

So it seems to me that Head-to-Head result is the first tie-breaker. The legend should be changed on the USL Pro standings template, but I don't know how.GrouchoPython (talk) 14:46, 4 September 2014 (UTC)

Someone else and I both updated the tie-breaker criteria in the footer. :) --Trödel 00:02, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

Clarity is always good. :)GrouchoPython (talk) 03:10, 10 September 2014 (UTC)
