To me you should have played all the tournaments having a by for two tournaments to most makes you losers even if you win. The rest of the teams at least played and earned their wins.
I am sorry nothing against the boys they are all great Players and nice kids but how are they going to learn to earn it by not playing like everyone else it is wimpy to me.
Just my opinion
