Frankenfeld decision is an embarassment
So why would anyone want to support a league who is willing to put 2 outright division winners at a disadvantage for the Robertson Cup to accommodate the host team who couldn't even win their division. So both Michigan and Bismark have won their division outright and won't set foot on the ice in the Robertson Cup and the winner of the Bismark-Michigan play in will be at a disadvantage because after winning their best of 5 series in their division to win a spot in the Robertson cup they have to hurry home for half a day, pack and leave for Topeka for an extra couple playoff games that none of the other division winners have to play leaving them no rest time or practice time to prepare for the Robertson Cup. It is pathetic when a league lets politics and money drive their decisions. The four division winners should compete for the Robertson Cup not some host team who couldn't win their division. Pay the host team a fee for hosting, have a wildcard and do a 6 team round robin for the cup. Do a 5 team round robin giving the first place team a bye there are so many better alternatives that the fine commissioner should have considered. Oh but that's right they are commodities not athletes...this playoff format is a joke.
