Damn that week 21! I was hoping that we would both be tied for 1st like it would if it were a roto league, but oh well!

Well done CrimeDogg, you owned this year!

Don't believe there is one in place, and not sure there's really a fair way to decide who stays and who doesn't either. We've always had to replace a few managers in the Champions League (even with the promotion of those from the First Division leagues), so that's been our mechanism in place to make room for both those tied teams to make it in. If you guys have any solutions to break a tie in that scenario feel free to offer it up.


I figure you know more about Yahoo than most in here, so do you know how they determined who got "first" and who got "second" in a H2H league that ties (we had no playoffs)? Do they have some sort of tiebreaker, or is it random, or does it show up for both people as #1 and a true tie?


I found this on the head to head tie break procedure:

Code: Select all
If at the end of the season, two or more players in a Head-to-Head League finish tied in the standings, the following system is used to break the tie:

1.Overall winning percentage.
2.Highest winning percentage in Week 21.
3.Highest winning percentage in Week 20.


In week 21 you won 5-4 whilst Jordanrulz lost 3-6, hence you won the yahoo tiebreaker.


That is interesting didn't know about that tiebreaker for Yahoo. Some other tiebreakers I thought of were best winning percentage in "playoff weeks", H2H record between the tied owners, or even an arbitrary category like who got most total points, rebounds, etc., or expansion of the league like RB touched on. I don't think it really matters what the tiebreaker is but I think it would be smart to decide it this off-season because nobody is going to be happy if they lost on a tiebreaker that was decided after the fact.

You dominated "week 21" for roto, I am lucky that wasn't your H2H team. I thought there was a real good chance we were each going to get 1 in one league and 2 in the other and either had co-champions or some other kind of tiebreaker. Good competition between everyone all year and I think week 21 shows how nobody gave up in the league and was competitive until the end.

Nice to keep the octagon 1st and 2nd place in MN, our state finally won something (aside from a d1 hockey nat'l championship, which barely counts)!

If the Wolves can win the lottery, all the losing will be worth it

Congratulations Crimedogg. Mr. Dogg! You've lowered the previous record of combined points in Champion's League competition from 3 to 2.5. In theory that can be beaten, but realistically I suspect it won't be. In other words, you've just completed what may be one of the great historical achievements in fantasy hoops. You're a veritable George Mikan (which we can all agree is a sight better than being a veritable George Michael).

ImageImage

Don't underestimate what you've just earned:

Prizes:
The winner of the Champions League each year will receive his choice of: (i) right to wear an exact duplicate of the Championship ring awarded to the NBA champs the year you win (must buy ring yourself); (ii) a diamond-encrusted clock necklace with oversized 18-carat gold-plated chain presented to you in person by recording artist Flava Flav (yeahhh boiii); or (iii) the permanent right to say to anybody in the Cafe who ever dares question your fantasy or NBA knowledge the following: "It's all about the bling though, ain't it?"

Use your newly earned powers wisely and for the greater good of mankind, young jedi. ;-D

I didn't realize the ability to use the phrase "it's all about the bling though, ain't it" was permanent. You guys are going to wish you had only allowed it during the defending championship season.

Although 2nd place is the 1st loser, wondering if my 2nd place Octagon finish is enough to get me the Fantasy Expert icon that a bunch of you guys have?

I don't think they've given out expert icons in a couple of years now, at least they haven't on the baseball side, assume it's probably the same here.
