Hot Potato 15/16


Recommended Posts

Take note Doncaster, it's back for another season.



(Almost) the same rules as last year:




Keep 1 up 1 down down but instead of play-offs add a "hot potato" element to the league like so:


The biggest losers on the first day of the season get an "R" next to their name, and keep it until they win a game. The team they beat then gets the "R", and so on for 36 weeks. Whoever has it at the end of the last day of the season goes into a relegation play-off, no matter where they finish in the league.



It's like half league/half cup. Playing the team plagued with the "hot potato" would turn into the most exciting game of the season!



At the end of the season:


1st- promoted


2nd- promotion play-off


"R"- relegation play-off


10th- relegated



(If two or more teams share the worst result in week 1 the hot potato will go to whichever of the worst losers gets the worse result in week 2.



By popular demand, if 1st or 10th has the "R" at the end of the season, the other teams will no longer draw straws for it. This season it'll go to a P&B poll.)




First to take the 15/16 Hot Potato are my picks for the title, Arbroath, after a 3-0 defeat on Day 1.

So what happens if it ends up that the 10th place team also has the "Hot Potato" after the last game of the season???

Does the 9th place Team just become the Relegation Play-Off candidate anyway???

Come on KK, read the small print!

Oh, Todd, Todd, Todd...

Bottom of the table, 0 points, -6 GD and the Hot Potato in their hands for a second week. Let's hope Arbroath are just doing the 14/15 season in reverse, and getting the hard bit over with now.
