How did I not make the playoffs?

Postby JT Money » Tue Dec 11, 2012 1:06 am

5 way tie for the final 2 playoffs spots.
Of the 5 teams, no one had an advantage when it came to all the head to heads.
I'm on a 4 game win streak, everyone else is on a 1 or 2 game losing streak.
I've scored the most points, and had the most points scored against me.
How the hell did I not make it?

Actually, was just looking at it, looks like it goes by the "true" ranking thing.
Not 100% yet that I haven't made it. All the standings haven't been updated, but the playoff schedule is filled out. Maybe that's just the teams that would be in the playoffs if the season ended at that time?

Nope, didn't make it.
Most points scored of all the tied people.
Most points against me.
2nd in the league in the "true" rankings.
No worse than 3rd in any of the statistics.

How in the hell did I not make it?!?!

Forget most points scored/scored against. Playoff tiebreaker should be overall record, head to head (2 teams tied), head to head (best combined record of tied teams), division record, points for. So in your situation, take all five tied teams and go through each schedule. Combine wins and losses between ONLY the tied teams. The teams with the two best records go through. Use percentages when one team is 4-3 and another 3-2...

THANK YOU.
I can now rest easy at least understanding why I didn't make it...even though it's still bullshit seeing as how I had 3 more games total against the people I was tied with than anyone else lol

Thanks man.

The only fair regular season tiebreaker is Total Points.
