Is US club lax is in business with Madlax? The rankings are not objective. Why is Madlax near the top of every list? At a closer look of the input data (tournaments) there are missing games. If US Club lax is pulling data from tourny marchine, they should go back and check their work because they didn’t pull of the data. US club lax should release the calculations behind the SOS value so that everyone can independently calculate for themselves.
You can email them if you feel like a tourney or games are missing, but they list all included tourneys on their website and throw out ones without enough legit teams.
Yes, they are responsive. My son's team wen 3-1 at NXT Cup which is usually an upper level tourney but they told me "There were not enough nationally relevant teams this year."
The best way to get your rankings to improve is show up at NAL and NLF and win there. While there may be some decent teams at NXT, the disparity is something I didn't believe until I saw it for myself. I think the West Coast teams just need to be in the mix and not sure why they are as high as they are. Beating up on helpless teams like Boulder Green Beans and True National should not put you in the top 10.
