Since you were soliciting votes on a rollerball format last night... just thought I'd toss out these other alternatives:

First idea: "No trash" games. Shots from the goalie or five bar count as half-points for both teams. The team that scores the next "clean" shot from the 3 bar gets 1 point + a point for each half point currently on the board. The other team gets none.


Second idea: when I was in SF, I played in a tournament where the format was:



Best of Three where:


1st game was a normal play to 7 game
2nd game was roto.
3rd game was normal play - BUT you had to win by 2 points.


Anyway, just some ideas.

Like the no slop idea, even though that's my best shot, not sure about the next clean shot being super rewarded, just make it a clean shot game. Best of three is also a good idea.

I really like the SF format. The no slop format actually seems to be putting more weight on the slop as you can potentially win a "jackpot" of slop to win a game.

It would also be cool to maybe have an extra table moved in just to play pick up games, and to learn things on and practice. Winners stay losers pay (quarters) type of thing.

I think it'd be awesome to have a high payout event, maybe like a hundred dollar entry dyp or something! It'd have to be at one of the major events though, like Vegas warmup, to draw people. I think it'd get alot of attention and be good publicity our local tournament.
Also like the idea of the extra table for pick up games. It sucks sitting around waiting for your match/event to begin. Keep the slop though, I'll learn to block it eventually!

Just cuz I'm a cheap ass who isn't that good of a player (so I'd likely lose my entry anyway)... I wouldn't go for $100 entry... but I'd totally go up to maybe... $40. Current payouts run $60/$30/$10ish for most tourneys with $4-$10 entry... if we made a special event that was 10x... I'd imagine the payout would be 10x... 600/300/100... I'd risk $40 for $600.

Only every once in a while though. Even $20 for 300/100/50 or something would be worthwhile.
