Tie-Breaker

As Ed was saavy enough to point out yesterday, there is currently no language in the by-laws dealing with who gets into the playoffs (even though everyone but Ed knew what the criteria was). Nevertheless, we will add language to the by-laws and have everyone vote on it. As a result, there also isn't language in the by-laws that deal with tie breakers at the end of the regular season (i.e. if two teams are vying for the 6th spot and have the same record). I spoke with Co-Commissioner T-Dub on how to handle such a scenario should it come up.

We thought the best way would take the two teams in question, look at their head to head numbers, and whoever has the better record advances into the playoffs.

For instance, let's say the Roscoe Village Hot Dogs and the Cornholers are tied for 6th place at the end of the regular season. Looking at the regular season head to head numbers for both teams, it looks like the Hot Dogs defeated the Cornholers by a score of 6-4, so the Roscoe Village Hot Dogs would advance to the playoffs.

If the Cornholers and the Hot Dogs are tied in their head-to-head meetings, I suggest we compare both teams records against their division opponents.

We believe this is the fairest way to handle the situation. I don't believe we will see a tie-breaker at the end of this week, but in the event there is one, we'll have a contingency plant. Thoughts?

Agreed on all fronts. I think we can probably vote on the amendment right now.

Cornholers said...

The Cornholers being used as an example for tie-breakers for the playoffs. That is the most relevant the Cornholers have been the entire season. I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of owners are currently thinking "Cornholers, what team is that?".

Can't wait for the football game tonight!!!

Agreed, we probably should just vote if you're cool with it PG.

Agreed.

To my Chicago buddies - Are you going to take another crybaby off of our hands here in Denver (Carmelo Anthony)? Word out here is that Chicago and Denver are in discussions.

Not an NBA guy at all, but I think you will like this. Apparently Melo's wife runs the show in the Anthony house and has told him that SHE would like to be in a bigger city so they can maximize their power couple status. Yup, that woman who was on MTV for all of 25 seconds wants a larger platform. And the best part is, Melo does absolutely everything she says. Thought you men would enjoy that.

Who are the Bulls? What is the NBA? McCoy Liam is not allowed to hear or watch anything basketball related - all hockey, all the time.
