Here's the reason: we added a new rule in the baseball season but forgot to add it to the football rules...
Fantasy Baseball Cafe wrote:Additionally, accurately predicting the margin of victory is also important. For every run by which you miss the correct margin, one point will be deducted.
Example: Your prediction for Anaheim vs. Oakland is 4-2. However, the actual final score is 5-6. You lose three points because you predicted a margin of victory of plus two runs for Oakland, when in fact the true margin saw Anaheim trailing by a run.
So those are your 38 points missing. Basically, the points are calculated automatically this year, so once we have the algorithm right, there should be no problems.
Anyway, since this is just a warmup, we can always change the rules if you guys want to. So before I actually add the above to the rules page, do you think it's good to factor the margin of victory into the points, of did we put too much weight on it?
