What's The Best Matchup Tie Breaker, or Leave as Tie?

Postby TomBrooklyn » Sat Sep 20, 2008 12:28 pm

Do you prefer to leave regular season matchup ties as ties, or to have a tiebreaker?

If you like a tiebreaker, which one do you like best...

Leave as tie. Everything else is completely random.

But if you use decimals in your scoring, a tie is really a freak occurrence.

Leave as a tie - agree with Matthias that if your league is set up for fractional scoring you will usually avoid tie games.

I agree about leaving it as ties.

Side note - how many people actually use decimal based scoring? I've thought about changing some (or all) of my leagues to decimal based. Anyone have any thoughts on using decimals in scoring?

Leave as a tie. The only way I can see a teams bench points as a tie breaker is if your league is like one were I work. The only reason I'm in this league is becuse it was all ready established when I joined and I haven't found another money league (I play in another money league that I have been in for about 9 years)that I like any better to replace it. We start 1-QB 2-RB 2-WR 1-TE 1-K 1-DST and we all have one backup at each position. I don't really like this restriction on the rosters but it does make the bench points as a tie breaker fair.
