I would like one poster (any poster) to explain to me how it is fair to force the only team that made the SB without issue should now be forced to play 2 teams in the SB. Please see my original post.
Moreover, using decimal scoring only refines what all players on the field did for their respective owners. It is not a "change" in scoring.
Saying that all 3 need to play is just the other side of saying neither of the 2 tied teams should play as neither won therefore neither advanced. If I am the third team (that did advance) I think I have an equal case of saying they both lost so crown me now.
You know what, you're absolutely right. It isn't fair for that team to have to play those other two. However, that is the only fair option because there were no tiebreaker rules put into place in the beginning of the year.
Fractional scoring is a choice a league makes in the beginning of the year. You either use it the whole year or you don't. It changes the outcome.
A tie is neither a win or a loss. You can't penalize teams for having the same output for that week, and because you can't say neither advance, the only other option is having both advance.
You can't change the rules in the middle of a season. 3 teams have to play for the title, and a tiebreaker system needs to be put in place for next year.
