Why not score on the fractions?

Postby kevster1 » Wed Sep 01, 2004 3:48 pm

Over the years my league has experimented with different scoring systems, with the ultimate goal of trying to establish as fairly as possible who has the strongest team. This year we decided score as follows. .1 point for rushing yard. .05 for passing yards, and.125 for receiving yards. Im not sure how many leagues have done this before, but to me it seems obvious. If your running back rushes for 99 yards, why should you only get 9 pts. It m ;-D ay also serve the purpose of eliminating the potential of ties. Im curious as to what you think about this, and why more leagues are not doing this, especially since most leagues have gone to web site scoring.

In the leagues I commish I use and prefer fractional points. Most of the other leagues I play in don't. I'm not sure why more leagues don't use it.

I've always used fractional points in leagues I've run. Other leagues I'm in without them always seem to frustrate me. Plus ties in FF are pretty gay..

Works for me. My league has been doing decimal scoring (only down to two digits, though) for a long time, and we haven't encountered any disadvantages yet. All a matter of taste, though.

Those 83.12-83.12 ties can be nerve-wracking, though. ;-)

I like ties. Don't get me wrong, I would rather win, but do you really want to lose by .18 of a point? Thats BS! Besides, the last two years combined we had a total of two ties. I want to see 125-118, not 125.34-118.03.

The league i was in last year....we had like 4 ties throughout the season. This year, fractional points were introduced so that crap wont happen again.

Yay for fractional points & negative points....

For the time, this year my league is using fractional points. I lobbied for it becaue it just seemed to make sense. Rushing and passing benchmarks seemed relatively arbitrary anyway (after all, is there much difference between passing for 249 yards and 250 yards? Without fractional points, the answer is yes).

Fractional points are good for leagues. You may need that extra tenth of a point to win a game. You just never know.
