Team 1: We’re no longer playing you because you’re no longer playing.
Team 2: Actually, we changed our minds and we are playing. But only with our conference teams.
Team 1: That’s fine. I’ve found someone else to play.
Team 3: Uh, sorry. We cancelled.
Team 1: Wait. We can switch this game against Team 4 from this date to that date.
Team 4: Fine with us. We just need to switch that game with Team 5.
Team 5: Nope. Can’t.
Team 4: Why?
Team 5: Because Team 6 that was supposed to play that day already found another game.
Team 6: Team 3 already got in touch with us.
Team 1: So, wait, Team 3 cancelled with Team 6 and that means we can’t play Team 4?
Team 2: We just cancelled a conference game, but Team 7 stepped in. We’re playing tomorrow.
Team 1: BUT YOU SAID YOU ONLY WANTED TO PLAY CONFERENCE GAMES!
Team 2: That’s because we wanted to keep the money among us, but when one team cancelled we needed to fill the spot so we didn’t lose the money.
Team 8: Anyone need a game?
Team 1: Unfortunately, you’ll weaken our overall schedule strength.
