[eDebate] Wrong on math

an additional argument for 7 round tournaments: round 7 does not have side constraints so the powering is usually quite on target. in round 8 (or round 6), side constraints frequently cause mismatches in round 8.

I said something that was wrong.  In a seven round tournament, the 4-3s and above should compromise exactly or close to exactly half of the teams (pullups and other things account for some deviance).  So my comment about half the field clearing being excessive was quite silly.
