    I heard this last night that the BOD voted in that the 2nd place team in the states can now have a finalist's shirt.I just wanted to say that IMO I would not want or even wear a second place shirt.

    First of the Losers LOL. I see no point ever to have second place although I can see how people would like to have it. Just not my thing

    Second might suck for some, but we made it further than most. That should stand for something.
    Having never in all my years been that far, I am proud of my team for hanging the way they did. I personally would like a finalist shirt. I'm sure most of my team feels the way you do, this is totally a personal view.

    I agree with Suzy, in the past The State Finalist and the State Champs Both got Shirts, as well as trophy's, I found out this year no more trophy for the runner up, but I expect we will recieve shirts and as Suzy said, we are all proud to have made it farther than all but one team
    so i vote Yes!

    I understand the mentality that 1st place is the only thing that matters but that is still a huge accomplishment to make it to the State Finals. To say it is nothing is just ignorant. It's worthy of recognition and I would be very proud to take my team there. Not just because it would be the first time I ever went but because you have to go through so much to get there. Some people are very fortunate to go there many times because they have good teams that are always cooking on all cylinders but some people play their whole lives and never get a State Championship even if they are the best player on their team. It ain't even close to nothing even though I understand that mentality that only 1st matters. It's really a lot different in a big league like this rather than being 2nd in say a tournament or something. You finish 2nd best out of 80 some odd teams, that's awesome and you deserve something.

    What do I know though, right? Just my 2 cents.

    Personally, I wouldn't go around advertising I lost. I also have a box full of MMDL shirts that are going to be part of one of my truck washes, as all the rest of the shirts I have earned through darts have been a part of.

    With that said, I can see why players who are first time runner ups wanting them. That may well be the only time they get there, so why not.

    The way it always has been is that if you won the area and lost in state semi, you got area champion shirts. If you won the semi's and lost in the finals you got a state finalist shirt. This would be in addition to your division T-shirt if you won the division. I have my state finalist shirt from 2006 and still wear it proudly..as it was said, we still made it very damn far and it still means a lot to us. That year we got a plaque for each player and a trophy for the bar..which we went and got copies made of before handing it over LOL

    Super A is a little different, as there is no area playoff within your own area. You obviously can only give division shirts for that; however, it is my opinion personally that the team who is the finalist should also get shirts. To get that far in Super A you have played 8 weeks of playoffs on top of a 12 week season, and driven out of your area more often than not in order to do so. That should count for something. Plus at that level to be able to say you are the 2nd best team in the whole state, while not quite the best, isn't a terrible thing.

    I understand what your saying Chris, but I think the money spent on all these extra shirts should be used for the new dart players relief fund. At least it will be used for a good cause instead of just being thrown in the back of someone's closet, never to be seen again, as most shirts are.

    There is no extra shirt, the Area shirt gets "finalist" put on it, nothing more.

    Not a bad idea Chitown, but some people like to get the shirts even if they don't wear them..give them to their kids or something like that. And that does NOT include using them to wash your truck haha..should just do it right!

    Adam, don't we get an Area Champion shirt and a State Finalist shirt?
    Thats the way it was done in the past.
    Thats what Chris was saying, we didnt win our division, so there wouldnt be a division shirt, I know that when i was AD that is how it was, I didn't know things had changed until we made it to the final, I also thought we got a trophy, but i guess that changed as well, we did make the State Final in Fall of 03 and we got, Trophy, Plaques and Shirts, as well as Area Champ stuff

    It seems like at the top there is shame for coming in second, I can tell you that in the lower divisions they seem to like any extra acknowledgement for a job well done. Adding the word Finalist to the Area shirt for them is not shameful. It might be to the Super A crowd, but I think it means alot to these other people. And to be crystal clear, this isnt an added expense, its a shirt that you already win.

    I think that any recognition that one gets for personal and team accomplishment is deserved and should be recognized.Does it hurt when you lose in the finals? Damn straight and it should.It still needs to be recognized that you in fact got that far.This is money already spent...I don't think there is anything wrong with that.Also I would like to start the Fall trash talking right now by stating that Billy I won't think any less of you if you wear your 2010 Fall Super A Finalist shirt when I see you out and about Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

    I am not ashamed of 2nd place. In the A Division we went further than all but one other team. I'm with DTR on this too. When I was Ad, you got a 2 shirts, one for each of the highest places you made. So you got Divison if first, you got Area first/ finalist or you got State first/ finalist. By putting finalist on the area shirts, is that just the style of the shirt given or do they in fact say State Finalist (ie: T shirt or collar? The area shirts are not the same as the State winners. Also, 10 plaques were issued to the Finalist team. One for each member, and one for the bar. Each members plaque was the same size as the All Star Plaques. The bar was a little larger.
    I would love to wear my shirt, pink or any other color. And no Frank, you cannot borrow it to wash your car.

    Almost 2 Months of playing tuesday and thursday, winning your area, winning state semi's, and being one of the top two teams at your level is definatelly a great accomplishment. Whatever, Runner-up shirt or not I still had an awesome run with my team and we should be proud!
