Yea!!! I'll take it. But I must confess, I still don't know how it was calculated. Sounds like it was calculated in a way that I was actually suggesting I don't think it should be calculated, but I guess this time around I won't complain.
[meaning: I don't think it should be based on averages the players posted last year, but rather based upon their cumulative totals, but that's just my $0.02, I guess I don't recall the rules specifying it out]
I don't get this at all. It' supposed to be a mini-roto
league right? Not a mini HtH
league? Roto, but it's very definition is about cumulative scoring, not average scoring. I wasn't concerned about the exact mechanics of the MRL, because it said it was roto, so I assumed it used, you know, roto scoring.
This is the sort of expectation vs reality thing that has been giving people hives with this league. The rule about the MRL says only...
if 2 or more teams have same amount of cap free and bid it all on a player, that player is awarded to a team that comes out as a winner of a roto mini-league based on last year's numbers.
There's no possible way anyone reading that rule would come to the conclusion that is was going to figured out using averaged stats.
I'm not pointing fingers here, and I don't care how we figure the MRL out (only that we do). What I'm concerned about is that if things keep popping up that don't really match what the rules say, that people will get pissed. I think we need to make sure that if new rules are going into practice for the first time that we get some clarification first, or something. Constantly being surprised is annoying.
This isn't me blaming you Kal btw, I know what state the rules posts are in, I'm just saying that we need to be a little more proactive on the transparency side of things.
