Tie-breaker

Recommended Posts

12 team head-to-head league. no rules about tie-breakers. I am not a Commish. Of course after week 1, we have a tie. I am not involved in the tie.

 

Commish says tie because "there are ties in football."

 

I think we should put this to a vote about how to resolve ties going forward (using bench pts.) or do we leave things as they are?

 

what say you?

 

Of course, next year, there'll be a tie-breaker in the league rules before the season starts. :D

Tie breakers should no doubt be put in place before the season starts. Since there is no rule in place this weeks tie needs to stay. I think the rule has to start next year since you had a tie already. If you change the rules now and not allow ties it may be unfair to the 2 teams that had a tie this week and it could effect season standings at the end of the year.

Some leagues do play with ties. I'd go with that now -- one team will get unfairly screwed by instituting a tie-breaker after the first week.

 

Make sure you have tiebreakers in place for the playoffs, though (including seeding). Then you can set a tiebreaker rule next season.

If I was in your league I'd propose that for this season, all reg season ties stay just as ties. Next season you can propose a rule change but it's too late for this season.

 

However, you must address, right now, what will happen in the playoffs in the event of a tie. You can't let it wait until it happens.

This was my advice too, but he stole it.

Need something in place for the playoffs, but wouldn't change for the regular season at this point.

 

In our league, we use the reserve scoring as the tie-breaker.

Agree with what was said here. I'm in a league that does allow ties, but we have a detailed tiebreaker for playoff games.

Do not anger anyone and keep it as a tie...especially if there are no rules about it. Just tell them its better than a loss

I disagree with any tie-breaker that involves bench scoring - who cares who's on the bench, it's the starters that matter!

 

I think the best way is total TD's by starters
