Most points, but missed the playoffs! anyone else?

Postby the weakerthans » Tue Dec 13, 2005 4:59 pm

Yeah, I finished with the most points in my $ league but in 5th place..

1st team: 10-4 1338
2nd team: 10-4 1149
3rd team: 9-5 1225
4th team: 9-5 1093
ME: 8-6 1378

I had a brutal schedule.. with all the bottom teams having their best performance of the year against me... I did a quick analysis, and with the schedule of the team in 4th place, I would have ended the season 13-1. Most of my losses I had the 2nd or 3rd best score of the week.

Anyone else in the same situation??? it would cheer me up to know I'm not the only one!! lol

I had a killer team too..

It won't totally brighten you up. But in my league of 12 we sent only 6 to playoffs and I barely got in at 6th place, So yeah if we took only 4 I would have been out...
And I tied with 1020 pts with first place team, I did the same comparison I would be 10-4 or 11-3 in anybody's else schedule but I finished 7-7.... So if it wasnt for 6 spots I wouldnt have made it.
Half way through the season, I took stats on avg pts scored against each team mine was 74pts vs 1st place team had 51... Hard to win, even when you avg 67 pts a game.

In my league, the team with the absolute lowest points made the playoffs.

I'm 2nd in points and missed.

The guy in first place in points took the 4th and final playoff spot.

I scored the most points in my league and lost for only the 4th time on the final day of the regular season in a 12 team league. I totally backed into the playoffs, barely scraping in because somebody else lost. We played with 3 divisions of 4 teams each. The winner in my division had an 11-3 record, and I and somebody else in the same division BOTH had 10-4 records. I manged to squeek in based on points scored--I out-scored the next closest player, and everybody else in the league, for that matter, by over 200 pts. The other 2 people to get into the playoffs had records of 10-4 and, my favorite, 7-7. It's like that 7-7 team was in the NFC East or something. Ugh. I hate Divisions.

So umm, yeah. I did make the playoffs, although there were 30 minutes after I lost where I thought that I hadn't, so....I feel your pain. Sorta.

I feel your pain brother. In a Fanball league, my team finished with 90 more points than anyone else, but I was 8-6, in a 3 way tie for the Division crown but lost out on a playoff spot. It's frustrating as hel to hang 150 points and lose. I keep asking myself what did i do to offend the football gods?
Too much smack talk=hubris punishable by other teams having their best week of the year against you? I dunno. I may have to get out my sacraficial kinfe (Pittsburgh steel tempered in the tears of Dick Vermiel with a Ram horn hilt) and cut a male sheep's throat on an officially liscensed NFL sacraficial stone as an offering to the football gods. :~(
