You make no sense. How does SCDSL make more money with less playoff games? Teams pay ref fees. Silverlakes is paid for regardless if used or not. It’s a contract. Your team saves money by not having more games. Your club saves more money by not having to rent fields for more games. If playoffs are so important to you play for a better team. Most of these kids will be into high school practice. Unless they aren’t good enough for that team. You look at this through the eyes of a bad low level team. Say you are on a high level team. Play 10 games in league, 3 games in playoffs and then a Thanksgiving Tourney. The kids need a break. By the time you add in test dates a higher level team has what maybe 1 weekend off. Oh and BTW SCDSL added playoffs 3 years ago. Same fee is charged for teams since year one Of the league. So playoffs have always been essentially free. It is a DOC driven league if DOC’s said let’s play 14 games and no playoffs that’s what you would have.
