It was mentioned that the point system did not affect the outcome of the playoffs much at all. Then why have it? What is does affect is the teams that the TAPPS team did NOT play because of the point system. And you might say, "Who Cares?" and that is the exact attitude that this rule exudes.
I hold nothing against any team for the league they choose to be in. Making the best decision for your students/athletes should be the top priority. What bothers be is that a league will not let you join because of a personal education choice you have made, and then looks down its nose at you because you are not a part of it. TAPPS is a great league and benefits many athletes, but why does it have to have such an uppity attitude?
Let me illustrate from personal experience how this affects the non-select teams. I live in an area with very few 6 man football teams, you guessed it, North East Texas. We have a TAPPS team about 30 miles to the East and about 30 miles to the West. We have played both competitively in the past. Now neither one will play us even though it is closer to us than it is to almost any other team they play, most certainly any other district team. But, "just in case" they might need the point spread, they opt to play other teams much farther away and we also have to then go to about 100 miles distance each to fill those other 2 slots in our schedule. I am not saying this to knock either of those teams, but to show that this system does create significant travel costs for TAPPS and non-TAPPS teams all the while not really making much impact on the playoff picture. It is probably not this drastic in other areas of the state, but the moral question remains. Should you "do unto others as you would have them do unto you?" I think one of the P's stands for Parochial so they should be familiar with where this quote comes from.
