I'll stay away from the whole outsourcing issue and instead just comment on the system itself.
My take on the press release is that the OLA is hedging their bets on this. The wording suggests that these rankings will be used to "help" rate the teams, so I suspect that the official ratings that come out in early July will vary somewhat from the MYLax ranks.will this be the sole way to rank teams i do believe this could work but might have a transition period. some teams arent even listed is there a reason
For Kahnawake Bantams, their scores and record is wrong on this new site. The team is undeated but shows 2 losses. They have only played 1 Gloucester team all year (Gloucester 1) but it shows that they have played Gloucester teams 4 times. They played Nepean 1, not Nepean 2. How many other teams are like this?
Myhockeyrankings does not charge for their rankings. I presume they make their money from advertising on their site.She:kon!
I agree with what you are saying - all good points - however with a membership in the tens of thousands, I would think that a Request For Information or some sort of public tender could at least have been a decent route to go, even to the membership alone.
But I am not sure those sorts of rules or policies apply to the OLA.
Barring anyone wanting to wildly profit from the OLA :S LaxPower explains their ratings system (http://www.laxpower.com/update12/ex_col.php) and I would have thought something similar could be developed 'locally' and from within the community. If peeps don't know the opportunities exist, that can't offer to help.
