    If News2 is stupid enough to make their “game of the week” be decided by fan votes – when the game of SWG vs Central is a fight to see which team stays out of last place in the conference instead of a Page-Dudley showdown between two unbeaten in the conference teams, when one of those teams ranked near the top in the state and the other is a perennial state title contender…then they’ll deserve all the ridicule they get on here.

    Sometimes the choice is so obvious they need to just make the decision on their own.

    The game of the week should be Northwest @ East Forsyth. This appears to be a close match up with Conference Title implications. I suppose it is not an option since the game is not on “guilford” soil. I really do not see Page and Dudley as a good matchup but … hey … rivalries.

  • mark said,

    true – I was going by the list posted and hadn’t even considered that Northwest- East game.

    That will definitely be one of the best games around this week. Northwest is in the frontrunner’s seat right now but East is awfully tough. They are big. Have speed in the backfield and a big, mobile QB. With a win East can pretty much force a 3 way tie – with a loss they’ll be looking at third place finish which will probably land them at Mallard Creek or Butler to open the playoffs. A lot to play for.

    As to the Dudley-Page game. It might be closer than many people expect. Dudley is certainly down this year and Page is running on 8 cylinders. But Dudley is playing a lot better now than earlier in the year and may give Page all they can handle. In any event that game will be better to cover than any of the others on that list.

  • McFly said,

    Mark,
    Excellent comment. Do you know the NCHSAA rule determining the conference winner in the event of a tie? Overall record? I do not think head-to-head is considered (but that would not settle a three way tie)

  • mark said,

    I don’t really know the exact rules. If teams tie – either two way or three way they all are considered conference champs.

    In the event of a two way tie (like Ragsdale – NWG last year) both teams got a first place seed for the playoffs if they go into different playoff classes. So last year they didn’t look at head to head (Ragsdale would have been one, NWG two) they just gave Ragsdale a 1st place seed in 4A and NWG a first place seed for 4AA.

    If there is a three way tie who knows – they may draw straws for one, two and third place seeds. Ragsdale may automatically get a first place seed for 4A and East and NWG would flip a coin to see which one gets a first place seed and the other a second place seed in 4AA.

    Clear as mud right?

    NWG can make it perfectly clear by beating East Friday night – everyone wins what they are supposed to and It goes 1. NWG 2. Ragsdale 3. E Forsyth

    Go to any game u wanna, it doest matter. Mallared and Butler would wipe the floor aganist these teams, just speaking the truth, not hating/

    Vegas Mike

  • mark said,

    Yeah – you’re probably right.

    Since it doesn’t matter I’ll probably just stay home and watch Fringe or something. Wouldn’t want to waste my time watching some meaningless football game.

  • McFly said,

    Who’s Mallared?

  • Gfan said,

    Vegas Mike is famous for his hatin of this area and all the local teams in the area. He declared how SEG would lose early in the baseball playoffs against all these GREAT teams outside the area. He was way wrong as usual. He lives in Charlotte and hates the Triad. I say Page and NW will rock the playoffs.

  • Just Sayin!!! said,

    Where to start…….

    Everyone knows that NW @ E.Forsyth or Page @ Dudley is this areas Games Of the Week……..What this boils down to IMO is WFMY trying to get as many hits as possible on their web site so they can justify charging people what they charge them for advertisement……How bout Trinty @ Wheatmore last week! LOL! They just knew they would get thousands of hits for putting those two teams up as a possible Game of the week cause no one ever talks about them. So when WFMY says their going to cover that game people in that area get real excited. Do you really think an 0-8 team vs a 4-4 team deserves to be a game of the week? Come on people…..

    Anyway……Their coverage of the Game of the week doesn’t go into any more depth than it does for any other game so why call it the game of the week?……They just put it 1st in the highlights say its the game of the week and put the little Wendys logo in the corner. (again advertisement hits) If you want to make it the Game of the week do a more in depth coverage with player and coaches interviews more highlights and stats…….Not hating Just Sayin…..

  • Mike said,

    Gfan,
    You must take better notes, I called it when i said both SEG and NEG couldnt win the big one, and im calling it again when im telling you that Page will not either. Im not from Charlotte, as a matter of fact, I live within a few miles from a High School that kicks the s&^% oiut of your prescious swhirlies in just about every single sport. Im not a hater, just call em like i see em!

    @ Mike–

    Pray tell, WHO MIGHT YOUR FAVORITE TEAM BE??? Oh, please excuse the shouting (all caps). I know it’s hard to hear me (a die hard PAGE PIRATE FAN) being so far up! Lol!!!
    .
    .
    It gets soooo cold and lonely sitting here on the TOP of Guilford County! ***sigh***

    Oh well…(whispering) Let’s get this…PIRATES! For those of you that know, Page is on a whole ‘nother level this year! These boys are simply…amazing! Yeah, it’s going to be a good game but let’s just say….judging from Saturday’s N&R, it doesn’t take news coverage to win games or amass a devout following. In fact, they can stay silent. You’ll hear the roar of the Pirates come Friday night.

    Good Luck to your favorite team!

    Let’s go Pirates!!!!…….#prodigy

  • Gfan said,

    His favorite team is whoever is winning outside of this area. He is another Walmart Carolina fan who “liiikes ’em cause they got perty uniforms”. He brags about living a few miles from SEG but pulls for some Mallard Creek or Audrey Krell or Deep Valley or Johnson’s Pond team from some new school at Charlotte. He is just a hater.

    I say let’s go…Metro and ignore his dumb ***.

  • Mike said,

    This is why i get on here and tell the truth,year after year you guys get on here and blow your team through the roof to only get smacked in the playoffs. If you didnt go to other chat rooms and embarrase the rest of guilford co… I wouldnt say a word. ex..This was taken from another sports site.

    “Cmon guys. Page hasn’t shown anything yet accept the ability to beat up on inferior competition in their area. I really don’t want it to happen, but if this Page hype continues, before they’ve done anything, some of us may end up rooting against Page before the playoffs happen.”

    “Yes, you guys do, especially on defense, but when you see Mallard Creek in person, it takes your perspective to a different level. And, keep in mind, this is coming from a Butler fan. Most teams have 5′-10′ to 6′-2″ guys that can really run (Page, Butler, Richmond Co, etc…), but Mallard Creek can match the overall team speed of any top team in the state (and trust me, I’ve personally seen just about every one of you recently)…only their guys are mostly between 6′-3″ and 6′-7″.

    The 60th guy down the MC bench – the guy who has no hope of seeing the field for the team this year – is still 6′-0″ 190 lbs and runs a 4.5. In my 40 years of following high school football in various states around the country, MC’s size, speed, and especially depth of both of the above is just about the darndest thing I’ve ever seen. If you follow Florida HS ball or Texas HS ball, then you might have seen rosters like this before. But for the rest of us, MC’s combination of size and speed are almost hard to fathom, and certainly hard to explain in a way that everyone else gets the picture. They aren’t just jaw-droppingly huge across the starting 22, they are absolutely huge across their top 60. They have 3rd string guys as big as most team’s starters (and just as fast). If I had a MC roster, I would like to take the time and see how many college teams in the region that MC is bigger than. I bet the answer would shock many on this board.

    Anyway, Page definitely has terrific team speed, as does Richmond Co (and Indy, for that matter). Butler, by comparison, has decent, but not great, team speed this year. However, none of our rosters are overflowing with 6′-4″ guys with that kind of speed. Each of us has a few guys that fit that description, but MC has so many of them that they all can’t fit in the starting line up, and some of them end up sitting on the bench.”

    So you see, im not the only one on here who has actuarry seen, MC, BUTLER, RICHMOND play, so when i so Page has no chance, this is what i mean. Just telling the truth!!

    blah..blah…blah…..

    All of that is well and good. Incidentally, I read that post earlier. He’s entitled to his opinion just as you are but what I find AMUSING is the fact that you (and he) didn’t even realize in his comment how he threw the rest of the Guilford County teams under the bus simply to prove his point.

    First, some said that Northern had something for us. Next, it was Ragsdale. Now, some are saying Dudley. Then….this person just shuns ALL of the GC schools in stating ” Page hasn’t shown anything yet accept the ability to beat up on inferior competition in their area”. Inferior competition??? WTH? Not only are you taking jabs at all schools they’ve played and BEAT, you’re diminishing the fact that Page has an OUTSTANDING DEFENSE! C’mon, our defense has scored on numerous occasions. Let’s just put the cards on the table…..the entire team has worked so hard and deserve all the credit that comes their way. (Even if it’s begrudging some of you to do so)

    Finally, I find it even more amusing that YOU live RIGHT HERE in Guilford County yet, you have to travel an hour and some change to find a team to top us off. Says a LOT about YOUR hometown support. I mean, there isn’t at least ONE school in GC that you support? Damn! I’ve read in a previous post of yours that (if I’m not mistaken) you mentioned your were or are a coach. If that’s the case and you’ve coached locally, you seem like you’re throwing sour grapefruits. Might wanna get that checked out, bud. In fact, there IS a doctor in the house! he may be able to recommend someone for ya.

  • Underdogs Unite!!! said,

    One more thing—

    You kind of lost me toward the end of your comment. Can you please tell me what in the world “actuarry” means? At first I thought you meant “actually” but then I realized that the “R” key is nowhere near the “L” key so…..(O_O). I know a typo here and there may occur (I’ve done them a time or two myself–especially with the auto filler on my iPad) but DAMN! Lol!!!

    BTW-J/K. Just excuse my ability to be brutally sarcastic at times. Blame it on my college education and my witticism on my Grandmother. 🙂

  • Mike said,

    I pull for ALL Guilford County teams, and Im not a coach, just a sports junkie who has been around the block and just calls it like i see it. Good luck to all guilford co teams, please prove me wrong!

    P.S. I have no idea how i got two r’s instead of two l;s. Guess i was just trying to talk like a Pirate, lol arrgh
