I agree it is almost complete luck and maybe going on a hunch. But you really cant play the If Then because records will be different. How often do you see a team go 10-6 with mid pack total scoring who makes the playoffs and an 8-8 team who misses the playoffs and scores the 2nd or 3rd most amount of points? That happens regularly.

Case in point in the nightly yahoo football league. Europia Monoliths score 56.50 points and win. That point total would have only beaten 1 team and just so happens it was the team he was playing against. Ex's Republic scored 109.50 points and lost. He would have defeated over half of the teams had he played them. This is why the If Then theory doesnt work.


No, that is why it does work. It's the only realistic way you can compare two teams over an entire season. Unless you're saying that in your example the Monoliths were the better team, because they won and the Republic lost. Which is just stupid. That's like saying that a high school team that goes undefeated must be better than a NFL team that goes 8-8.

If you look at each week and compare what Team A and Team B scored, it will clearly show you who would've won that week. It will clearly show you how each team performed on a weekly basis. That wouldn't work in real football, but this is fantasy football.

kevin ogletree, denarius moore, and alshon jeffery. not a single higher ranked WR left that's got more points. if romo didn't suck so hard, i would feel better about playing ogletree :(

Side note: Danger I busted out laughing at that logo!


:thumbsup: bc the real definition isn't what i think of first when i see your team name.

You have your opinion and I have mine. We will leave it at that before anything gets too much heat.

An opinion might be what you had, but I think it's pretty clear I had facts.

i have no son. i mean wide recievers. they are terrible. cruz has ****ed me twice now. and somehow everyone's kicker i play gets 15 points or more. i have the best kicker in the league and his crap team can't at least get him in range, lol.

edit: my plan is to have mendenhall as my third reciever slot.

spam, i am disgusted by our stats.

-your kicker has more points than any member on your team.
-i have one player with more than 7 points
-i have 8 slots with less than 7 points

as of right now, i have 2 players in a 4th quarter, 1 D player to go and you have 1 player in the 4th quarter, and one WR to go.

Danger, it was report card week and I just saw you proposed a trade. I don't think you want Jennings. He's out this week.

Also, in your face doubters of Spam. I'm going to thrash Irish's Mom like a Pimp that's been cheated.
