Hi, I adapted the tournament I designed this morning a bit. Feel free to join.
There are 10 Applicants. From of those applicants two groups of five people are chosen randomly.
Each round one group loses and one wins. There are 7 rounds in wich you might have to compete.
The group that loses has to select two coaches among their own ranks who then have to compete in a straight knockout match about remaining in the tournament.
If one group has two more members then the other group: They have to select one member to hand over to the other side.
All decisions are made by majority rule. If a majority cannot be found the opponent group makes the decison instead. If the opponent group cannot make a decision either the decision is made randomly. How or based on what criteria decisions are made doesn't matter.
Every coach should bring a fresh TV1000 teams into the tournament. If he is unpleased with his team he can make a new rookie team at any time.
Not attending is considerd like a loss for the group. If the not attending coach is buisy he can claim to be exchanged and another coach can take his place.
The Round Structure
For a win is rewarded 1 points to the group and the coach.
For a tie is awarded 0 pointa.
For a loss or not attending is awarded -1 point to the group and the coach.
Don't worry if you don't get the following part yet. It will be clear later .
Round 1 - 10 People
Day 1/2: The coaches have to get an opponent coach of the other group to agree to a game to play within the week. They can play it right away if they wish. Every coach can play only once.
Day 3-7: The coaches who haven't managed to find an opponent are seeded randomly to one another. The group that gets the most points wins.
If number of points is equal that group loses that had more coaches responsible for games not happening.
If that number is equal touchdown difference decides.
If that number is equal both groups have to select one coach to compete in the knockout stage against each other.
Round 2 - 9 Coaches
Both sides select a representative to play for them against a representative from the other group. The game happens with overtime rules.
Round 3 - 8 Coaches
A random coach of both groups is selected and functions as a representative for that group. Like in round 2.
Round 4 - 7 Coaches
Both coaches select a representative. Then one remaining coach of each group is chosen randomly.
The two representatives have to compete against the two randomly chosen coaches.
Unless one group wins both matches, the winners have to compete against each other in a knockout style finale.
Round 5 - 6 Coaches
Coaches from both groups are seeded according to the highest amount of points they managed to make for their groups and have to compete against each other in a stable like format. Victory conditions like in Round 1.
Round 6 - 5 Coaches
Both groups select a coach of the opponents team who is not allowed to participate in this round. If the Group has now more then one coach available it can decide wich coach is allowed to represent them.
Round 7 - 4 Coaches
The final 4 Knockout
Groups are abandond and the final 4 remaining coaches get randomly seeded into a knockout challenge. The coach who wins becomes the champion of the tournament. And claims the price and bragging rights.
