The commish in one of my leagues just changed the scoring for kickers as it was outrageously inflated. However he has asked for a vote to leave it or change it back. here's what he said.
"Field goal scoring has been incorrect. They have been scored as 3, 7 and 9 points when they should be 3, 4 and 5 (distance depending).
I changed it to the correct scoring. It is not 1 and 2 points, which is what it looks like when you view the settings, but 3 points PLUS 1 or 2 extra on the longer distances.
I think it might retroactively change scores. While any changes in scores and wins/losses would be the way it should have been I understand if losing a previous game you had 'won' isn't something to be taken lightly.
A vote on whether we should keep the inflated field goal scoring (as high as 9 points for a field goal) would be appreciated. "
I'm kinda on the fence, normally I would say no scoring should be changed once the season starts but this puts a hell of a potential game changing factor on kicks that wouldn't normally happen. Any thoughts on how I should vote? Thanks in advance.
