Score TIEBREAKING....need some help.

Postby oldbutdeadlyone » Wed Dec 06, 2006 10:22 am

We start our playoffs this week and I was wondering, in case of a tied SCORE, what is best practice for tie-breaking. I have heard such things as bench scoring...etc....I am just wondering what is most fair...etc..and what your league does...

Thanks in advance!

I like Most Points Scored throughout the year. The better team should win the tie breaker.

I prefer to use total points for the year also. Which q/b are you going to start this week, by the way? I'm starting Romo over Buger in one lg, he's projected by Yahoo to score a gawdy 22 pts this week

If you have two teams that play each other this week in a playoff game and they tie. I'd say the most simple thing would be go to the bench and whoever scores more bench points wins the game. IF both benches are also tied. (Yeah right...) Then go to most points scored throughout the year.

I agree. For playoffs, I would rather consider something within the playoffs to be the tiebreaker.

The only reason I don't like Bench is that you could load up on DSTs (Which score alot of points in my league). I will throw it up to the league and let them think about it.

Thanks for the opinions...

BTW .... I feel I have to start ROMO this week. Bulger vs CHI....yuck! My biggest problem is RB....KJONES vs MIN or Edge vs SEA...

It is a worry. But you have to imagine that people will play more to have a deep bench in case they make the next week rather than to win the tiebreaker in the off-chance that they come up with the same score of the person they were playing that week. And if they do drop all their backups to win the tiebreak, someone else can snatch them up.

But having your own league come to a consensus is always the #1 way to resolve an issue, regardless of what it is that they come up with.

Dude: this is America. We use fractions. Or maybe you want to measure your field in meters? ;-)

Carry out points to the hundreth's place. If by some miracle there is a tie, which I can't see happening, I would go with bench scoring as a tiebreak.
