Specifically in PA, or Points Against, there is a mistake:
0 - 6 PA = 8 points
7 - 13 PA = 5 points
14 - 20 PA = 0 points *(should be 2 points)
21 - 27 PA = 2 points *(should be 0 points)
No one caught it untill this week. It affects 3 games that have already been played. 1 win turns into a tie, 1 tie turns into a win, and it reverses the win/lose for 1 game. We're probably going to fix this for future games.
How would you handle this?
I started a poll on our league message board asking everyone to vote:
1. Leave completed games alone. It was everyone's responsibility to check the scoring before hand.
2. Yes, fix past games. it was an obvious mistake and teams shouldn't be penalized for it
I think you're doing the right thing already. Let the league speak and do what the league wants. I try to do that as much as possible in all the leagues I commish. We had the same thing happen in 1 league last year and we ended up just leaving it. We didn't vote, the commish (not me) made the decision and there were no objections. Personally I'd probably say to leave it or fix it but not change previous games. Just my .02. Good luck!
