No asterisk explanation in any of my 4 Yahoo leagues, either.
Each of the four leagues allots 4 playoff teams:
League 1: 2 stars, but 3 teams tied for 3rd
League 2: 4 stars; 5th place team mathematically still in it, but 1 game and 70 points back
League 3: 4 stars, 5th and 6th place teams still in it, but 1 game and 170+ points back
League 4: 3 stars, only 1/2 game between 4th and 5th
What does this mean? Who knows? Looks like predicted playoff spots, but definitely not guaranteed. Maybe, the program has decided that 50+ points is too much to overcome?
