Weirdest thing possible happened? Help?

Postby Go Packers » Tue Dec 23, 2003 12:32 am

Going in to tonight I had a 11 point lead. I had Driver he had Green. Driver got me 7=18 Green got him 18. We are tied. What is the tiebreaker? Going by bench points I would win by 1 point.

I thinks it's which ever team has the most TD's by entire starting line-up

That rule stinks. Should have been like what you said about the benched points.

Lost by one point 101-100. Farve beat me by himself last night. Had the best game of his career when I needed him to sit or just be human. I officially want to die.

your in the Championship and don't know your league rules? If you don't have an "official" tiebreaking rule, then it's a tie and you both split the pot.

No tie-breaking rules = a tie!

Our tie-breakers are (in order)

1. Highest potential score
2. Most bench points
3-6. A bunch of other things like starter TDs, yards, etc.

Only apply in playoffs. Ties OK in regular season in our league, as specified in our rules. If you don't have a tie-breaker, don't just pick one. It's a tie. Or perhaps go to a Week 17 tie-breaker? There aren't many playoff teams that are playing for nothing this weekend, maybe KC if NE loses Saturday.

Tough break. I recommend using the decimal system in future seasons.

Yahoo does spell out all the scenarios and I'm sad to report the following in the case of a tiebreaker in the playoffs:

1. Most touchdowns scored by entire starting roster.

2. Most fantasy points by starting quarterback(s).

3. Most fantasy points by starting defensive team(s).

4. Most fantasy points by starting defensive player(s).

5. Most fantasy points by starting defensive back(s).

6. Most fantasy points by starting defensive linemen.

7. Most fantasy points by starting wide receiver(s).

8. Most fantasy points by starting running back(s).

9. Most fantasy points by starting tight end(s).

10. Most fantasy points by starting kicker(s).

11. Random "coin flip". *not sure who gets to flip said coin, some intern at Yahoo?
