Mailbag

Bart Killens, Gent

“I talk about this every year but will the BFL finally schedule the play-off games at different days or hours? I hate that people have to chose between 2 games that most of the time are very fun to watch”

I don’t know, I’m not the BFL. They should though. Looking at the standings, it’s very likely that both games on Wildcard Weekend will be in or around Brussels, making it perfectly possible to have one game at 12pm and the other maybe 4pm or something. Seems logical to me, but I don’t know what the plans are.
