We had a bit of an incident on Monday during our bowling league. The winner of the division of the 1st half of the league plays the winner of the 2nd half but before that we had our positioning round, we were in 1st place going up against the 2nd place team this half(who already won the first half) if we win 1 game we move to the roll-off, Top-8 teams advance out of 54, we won Game 1 and then the other team tanked it, throwing left-handed or straight. This sucks because it lowers their average and makes their handicap higher which gives them a better chance to beat us this Monday. The league coordinator said it isnt a big deal because it wont be alot of pins...WTF? There is $1200 on the line per person and you dont see this as a big deal?


If you guys get burned, the new rule will be named after you. It's not $1200 wing wangs, but it's something.

The team average went down 8 pins...in 1 night, we have been bowling for 35 weeks, that is how hard they tanked. They threw 5 gutterballs over the last 4 frames, if we lose by 8 or less, I'm gonna get kicked out of the league because I'm gonna wreck that place...and i use to work there so who cares?

Something similar happened in my last bowling league, some 5-6 years ago. A rival team whom I know where good as I bowled [and beat them all] against in High School/College started a 26 week season 0-8 on purpose so that their handicaps would carry them for the bulk of the season, to the point where they were beating teams nearly double....someone complained and they were removed from the league, and banned for the last half of the year. Just complain, and get them removed.

Win or lose, I'd be looking for another league. Allowing shenanigans like that in a buy-in league is ridiculous.

Yea, we definitely are looking, unfortunately it is the biggest league and therefore the biggest payout

Well I guess you could petition for a rule change.
