    Kevin, there will be shirts. Your area shirt will have "State Finalist" somewhere on the shirt. I believe we did away with runner up plaques though.

    Gez, I hope this poll is not looked at as being a true polling of the dart populas. Most of the people on here have been around darts for some time and the polling numbers show that. However, I know about 20 people at my bar alone that would take any shirt they could get.
    I could care less about anything but a state championship shirt, and thats only because I don't have one. There are a lot of newer shooters in the league that have never gotten a shirt or maybe only a division shirt. Do you think they could care less about a 2nd place shirt. I don't think so.....
    By the way, none of them are on SEWA.

    Funny this little poll seems to me to be a microcosm of the prevailing attitude in this country these day's. We've been conditioned to accept losing, accepting second place, coming up short. The most disturbing aspect of it is we demand acknowledgment for coming up short. I blame it on that stupid T-Ball crap. Ooooooh, everyone gets a hit, everyone gets on base. and don't make fun of Johnny when he runs the wrong way around the bases, he has feelings!!! Laughing Laughing Yup, gotta get me one of them Boston Celtic runner up jerseys for $25.00 they're selling like hotcakes!!
    NOT. You bow graciously, walk away dissatisfied, and practice, makes some changes if necessary and have back at it next season. You WON your division, acknowledged. You WON your area, acknowledged, you LOST in the State Finals, everyone look at me look at me!! I lost but i tried really hard!!!!! I don't think so. I know this post is going to go over like a fart in church. It's something else that's not well received in today's society, honesty. Just remember what most of you say to your team during the playoff's "We haven't done nothing yet. But by some sort of magical pixie dust you come in second and all of a sudden you did something? Good luck with that. I'd personally prefer a you suck, try again next year plaque. JMHO Wink

    Never have to my knowledge. A plaque for the bar. Seems appropriate. I've never won a State Championship.... Yet. Do you get an individual State Champ plaque? I hope not. It's a team accomplishment, not individual.

    Think about it this way... no one is going to be in an uproar cause they recieved a 2nd place shirt. But there ARE people that are going to be bummed out that they got nothing to show for their efforts.

    14 weeks of regular season...6 weeks of play-offs..a second place finish in the finals may not warrant a celebration,but it does warrant recognition.When did some of you become such buttholes? Twisted Evil

    You lost me at "become" LOL

    But seriously, agreed with Dave. Not to slight other areas, but think about in Super A (which is where I believe this thread started), you are looking at traveling out of your area several times to get to the finals.

    This is exactly what I'm talking about Jamie. you say there will be people bummed they got nothing to show for their efforts? I beg to differ.

    What they got was experience!!!

    You literally are a Young Darter so I would suggest developing a winning attitude. Don't beat yourself to death over it but don't accept 2nd place. Want an example? Look at Makin Treble. Do you see them on here talking about second place? You can hear a pin drop when they're all in the same room. I wouldn't speak for any of them but my impression is that it was viewed as a lost season. Some minor tweaks, a lot of practice, self evaluation and a new season with a vengeance. Losing is learning, winning is well, winning Wink

    All that is true Jakesy....I look at my "Finalist" shirt and see nothing but a lost season...it is there as a reminder of my failure to come through when it mattered the most.Then there is my son and daughter who made it to the finals in D and lost,they gained experience,but they are proud of how far they battled and they deserve recognition in the form of a shirt or plaque...nothing wrong with that.If you can look back on a season that didn't end in a state title and not find any good in it and don't feel the need to recognize that season,then what a colossal waste of time those 20 weeks were.

    I hope I'm not being taken the wrong way. It's not about shirts at all. And your right, Area champ has State finalist added to it so no extra shirts. All I'm talking about is a cautionary perspective on second place. I play on a long time MMDL team that accepts losing in stride, almost thankfully, so they can peruse other interests like Bike week, opening the pool, etc. Now that is a monumental waste of time and I don't see myself playing with them this season if that's the prevailing attitude again. Acceptance of losing has infected many a good team in the MMDL so it's just cautionary to some of our young up and comers. Wink

    I have one MMDL State Championship shirt that has never been worn. However I have multiple MMDL State Finalist shirts that have been worn. I guess it doesn't matter what it says, it is what it is made out of and looks like. Laughing Laughing

    Skiz - Would like to make a motion to the board to go back to Denim Shirts for the Champions. Ever since a made a big stink and got the "Choice of Shirt" voted in I haven't won a championship. Why should everyone else get to wear their Championship Gear when I just look at my denim shirt sitting in my closet. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

    Not to hijack,but I think sometimes tied to the thing about our world as Jakesy mentioned is how some people only seem to care about recognition.

    I heard a rumor that a team who won States this season is splitting up, perhaps bc they don't want to move up. Another rumor is that at least one person from the team is going to be on a team in a div lower than that which they won last season in order to improve their winning percentage. Shhould be interesting...
