I'll be 1-10, 7-4, 8-3, 4-7, and 5-6 in my 5 leagues this yr. Am I more skilled in the leagues I am doing better in or am I less lucky in the ones I am doing poorly in?
Well, I assume you're playing against different owners in each of those leagues, so your "skill level" varies from league to league.
But in any case, five leagues is far too small a sample size to draw any meaningful conclusions from...
They are all Cafe leagues so the competition level is pretty high I think. I will say the league I'm 1-10 in I missed the draft, so there is evidence that skill must be involved in winning (without skill - ie missing the draft - you have no chance is the lesson I take from that league).
The level of competition varies Im sure from each of the 5 leagues - but in general, I would say ALL of them meet that "knowledge ceiling" that FB was discussion earlier.
This really is an interesting topic - one thats debated yr after yr of course - but I promise my feelings about how much luck is involved do not change with how well I'm doing.
Dream - MSB is down to Gado needing 5-6 TDs to beat me - it could happen of course - but... Im willing to bet your just frusterated that you just lost your first rd bye.
