Rules of the USRL Lottery


  1. I will submit a date to the league commisioner for his approval. To preserve the randomness of the lottery, we will try to leave at least one weeks time between the announcement of the lottery format for the year and the actual date of the lottery.
  2. The lottery format will not change until expansion or a league vote changes it.
  3. The table below will be used to determine the winners of the #1 and #2 picks (round 1 only).
  4. All ties in the standings will be broken using the following rules:
    Three or more teams:
    	1) Head to Head record (best Win% in games among the tied teams). 
    	2) If the result of #1 is a tie of two teams, apply the two team tiebreakers.
    	3) If a tie remains, the teams will be ranked in inverse order of how they 
               selected in round one of the previous years draft.
    Two Teams:
    	1) Head to Head record
    	2) Division record,if both teams are in the same division.
            3) If a tie remains, the teams will be ranked in inverse order of how they 
    	selected in round one of the previous years draft. (In the event that a team 
            traded its #1, this is based on where they would have selected had they held on 
            to their pick)
    
  5. The results will become official upon confirmation of the result with at least two of the following sources: (My watching the drawing on TV,The Providence Journal,The local TV news and masslottery.com)
  6. In the event of a conflicting result, I will obtain an official result ticket from a Mass. and/or RI lottery agent.



The 1977 USRL lottery will be held on Saturday March 5, 2005.

Tie Breaker Explanations:

    a) MMU is given more chances due to a 2-6 record vs NLI
    b) SAT is given more chances due to the season series tie and MMI #2 picking earlier than SAT #9 in 1976 1st Round
    c) WIL is given more chances due to the season series tie and having less division wins (47) than IND (51)
