A global financial revolution has stirred a spirit of entrepreneurship across the Southern Wastes.
The rise of croc-to-currencies such as Bitecoin and Nibble (the proliferation of crocodile-based commodities as a new method of anchoring currency) has galvanised the population; veteran financial wizards now wrestle with crocodiles along with cash, while keen-minded rookies band together to stake a claim in a Brave New Economic World.

With the vast potential in the Southern Waste crocodile population limited only by the ability to manufacture (or ‘procure’) and unravel swamp-chains (the only ‘legal’ way by which crocodiles can be commoditized, and themselves subject to a myriad of arcane and complex rules), it was only a matter of time before the financial acumen, tactical risk-taking and frankly, overwhelming greed of SWL Management saw them buy into a number of croc-to-currency ventures.
While initial investments were slow to grow, and some ventures caused regrettable losses, a ‘broken egg:omellette’ mentality saw them stick it out into the recent boom-time. Almost overnight, global demand for crocodile-based commodities went through the tinshed roof, and gold flooded into the coffers.

This unexpected windfall has had a direct impact on the day-to-day running of the SWL. With money to burn, the SWL Department of Upper-Marketing and Banking presented plans for a Grand New Way of playing The Game. This of course meant that the Old Way was no longer needed, as the Grand New Way was far better, with flashy new balls and stadiums and anyway it had much better marketing and sponsorship contracts tied into it. With the prospect of even greater returns ringing in their cash-struck minds, SWL Management went all in for the scheme.

Then the bottom fell out.

With no choice but to continue down the chosen path, and barely cash left to pay the incumbent teams, players and coaches for one more season, the UMB Department - now firmly holding the reins - decreed a Prestige Cup.
Open to all who had played in the SWL, this Championship would show that despite recent setbacks the SWL was still the greatest damn league in the World, and surely that should drum up some ticket-sales.

And so the scene was set…



This forum thread is for anything relating to the
All Southern Wastes CRP Championship
This will be the Final CRP tournament in the Southern Wastes League.

HouseKeeping:
  • Divisional Structure
    To Be Confirmed.
  • Cup Commencement
    The Cup will commence on the 22nd of January 2018. First round is due on the 5th of February at 10pm SWL time.
  • Axing
    Games will be axed if not played by 10pm SWLtime Monday evenings. Include swladmin into your PM threads to avoid a coin toss!
  • General
    Please be aware that we rely on individual coaches to be active in checking this forum, arranging games against opponents (especially if not on east coast of Australia) and in communicating with Admins. The responsibility is on the coach to enquire, not the Admins to inform.
  • Drafting and Trial of Blood
    The Draft for Season 71 will be announced soon.
  • Parking/Unparking
    This is the last tournament using the CRP ruleset. Season 71 will be using the BB16 ruleset, and thus the league has been ‘reset’.


    Cup Rules:
  • The Competition will run over 7 rounds, with weekly deadlines.
  • The Cup is available to all outgoing SWL teams (i.e., those active during season 70), plus parked teams of ANY vintage (i.e., teams whose coach has not drafted a new team). This is a one-time amnesty on Parking limits.
  • The Cup is a prestige event, and is the last SWL tournament under CRP rules. As such, the Winner gets their name in the History Books as the Final CRP SWL Champion, and bragging rights for pretty much ever...
  • If your team qualifies, and you believe you have what it takes to go all the way, or you just want a slice of history, then PM your interest to swladmin or post in THIS thread.

ADMIN ANNOUNCEMENT: TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE

The All Southern Wastes CRP Championship will begin on Monday 22 January, with eight equal pools of 4 teams each, to play a short round robin over the first three rounds.

From this initial stage, the top 16 teams - 1st and 2nd in each pool (with tiebreakers as per usual for SWL divisions) - will advance to a seeded 16-team knockout.

Round of 16, Quarters, Semis, and then the final All Southern Wastes CRP Championship game make up the final four rounds for the most successful pair of teams.

There are currently about 30 successful applicants.
If you think you've got what it takes to spoil the run of some monster squad on the way there, don't miss out, it's a while until the next big Fringe tourney, this could be your last chance to test yourself against these end-of-era CRP legends.

Bribery and Corruption cannot be cleared from the SWL just yet, we've only just fully wormed our way into administration positions. The Gobs are in, and we're gunna take the lot, for, uh, safe keeping, to look after it.

Now, if I can just roll +ag on a few of them after the opening game.
