#1 Seeds season officially over

Postby RaginCajun » Tue Dec 09, 2003 11:32 am

I just wanted to share my misery...I entered the playoffs as the number 1 seed and the leading scorer. I played the #8 seed and he beat me 88-80. This was the lowest point total my team scored all year....3 of my studs killed me this week
Matt Hasselbeck, D.McCallister, and Tory Holt combined for a total of 16 points....Gotta love that..........Everyone in the league assumed that I was gonna win it all. for future reference.being the #1 seed doesnt mean Sh*t.....Like they say "any given Sunday"

well I just wanted to share my frustration

I was the #8 and knocked off our #1 last year, but being on the other end of that would be terrible...

Just hope he wins it all so you can at least know you lost to the champ..

Been there, done that, too.
I totally believe that in a 8 team league, points should be awarded to the #1 and #2 seeds. If you dominate all year, then it should take the #1 seed to have a major off day, while the #8 seed should have to score like a big dog.

I see your point, but disagree. Making the playoffs is new life to teams who have fought through injuries and un-expected low production, as well as a few bad picks.

Lushcrush,
If a playoff game consisted of your total score for 3 weeks, then I see your point. Injuries are part of the game. If your players get hurt, work the waiver wire or make some good trades. you shouldn't be rewarded for drafting a crap team. However, I do understand both sides.

how many teams are in these leagues with 8 playoff teams

unless there are 16 teams in this league, I think having 8 teams in the playoffs almost makes the regular season worthless.
teams at .500 or under could make it to the postseason.

if you want eight playoff teams, I think homefield advantage would be a good thing. It would mkae some of these upsets a little more difficult to do, and being the number one team would have meaning again.

I'd like to share how our 12 team yearly league handles some of the problems mentioned in this thread.

We are a money league (total prize money around $1000). The way it is divided is as follows:

1/3 gets split between the regular season champs of the 2 divisions. Schedules are weighted so you play more games against your divisional rivals.

1/3 goes to the winner of the postseason tournament. All teams participate, seeded by regular season standing with the top 4 teams getting a bye.

1/3 gets divided up into prize money for the most points in the league each week during the regular season.

I'm new to the league, this is what they've evolved to over 5-6 years. I think it's a pretty good setup.
