TIEBREAKERS....how do you play?

I don't mind ties. Believe me, you'll like them too if you make the playoffs with 8-5-1 record when there's an 8-6 team that has more total points than you do. This isn't baseball... there doesn't HAVE to be a winner every game.

In my money league we settle it with combat.... Both guys to the yard, winner take all... ;-D







Actually, we allow ties to stay on the record, and when playoff time comes if there is a tie, we look at total points first, and then head-to-head results...

Might I also suggest a drinking contest:

Each dude takes a shot (preferably a whiskey shot) every 10 minutes... First guy to pass out or puke loses....

In the leagues I run, ties are allowed during the season. During the playoffs, teams make out a tie-breaker lineup along with their starting lineup. Tie-breaker lineup consists of 5 players, one each from 5 different positions, and are compared total points first then position by position if needed to break the tie. If they are still tied after all that, the team that was ranked higher going into the playoffs advances.

We use total yards by all your active players.

Haven't had a tie since we went to fractional scoring!
If we do have one in the regular season, it will stay a tie. Playoffs, we use TD's.

We use a similar form including yours.....and division record, head-to-head. Something like that i'm not really sure what the actual order.

maybe home and away records could figure in somewhere.

I say play the Braveheart game.... winner takes all. Get a ton of liquor and the Braveheart DVD. Everyone takes a shot whenever "freedom" is said. Last one standing.

How, may you ask, does this solve the tiebreaker issue? By the end of it all, you'll forget what you were origionally doing the game for, and therefore won't care...
