You guy's may be right
Ricky Craven is 319,762 showing no points.
But in the Expert Advive he's recieving points..
May be they are listening to you. w/Craving points at 0
But they can't just come right out and say.... 2 Replies to Rod

BRAVO Rod_n_CG C!! I believe that is the most intelligent answer to date. Yahoo cannot say without saying what they meant to say. LOL!!!

That's makes me feel worse. I thought I was at least beating Ricky Craven.

If craven is 0, he lost 2,800 points? I'm also 95% in 15,177 place so there could be several thousand per % ? Go figure.

If you look under "Expert Advice" Craven actually has 1346 points. Also, if you read my previous post, I said that each percent represents about 3,300 people. To have a percent just to yourself Yahoo would have to figure it out to the exact decimal, but they aren't that exact. :)

They have been giving Ricky Craven 0 points each week. I think that is so we can see the total number of teams. In the standings he has 0 points and a rank of 319,762.

I used the formula and came up 321,260.
I am 95% ranked 16,063.
Thus 16,063 / .05 = 321,260
Craven is at 319,762
Even though Yahoo! told me that "that information is not given to the public" WHAT A LOAD OF HOOEY!!!

Hell yes I'll be there!
The math still doesn't seem to work.. So what gives?!?
I lost 74,777 positions after Bristol (Oohhh the shame.. BIG GRIN!!), multiplied by my 22% loss in ranking works out to 1,645,094...
On the other hand logically thinking,1.6 million yahoo players in one league is 1.1 million too many to keep a league properly organized...
Who knows, better yet who cares?!? LOL!! 2 Replies to Da Goat®

Da Goat  It's your math thats a little off. You would not multiply 74,777 by 22 because it is equal to 22%. You would need to devide 100 by 22 then multiply that by 74,777 for a total of 339,891
There is another way to figure it too. Here are my numbers as an example. I am currently 73,387 and at 78th % that means that 73,387 is equal to 22% (100% minus 78%) of the total players. To find the total devide 100 by 22 (equals 4.5454) then multiply that by 73,387 for a total of 333,573 players. Of course that is only an approximate total because each % is equal to about 3,300 players and there is no way to know exactly where in that number I am to calculate the accurate total. Hopefully this is not too confusing.....
So what time is the math lesson after the spelling bee? LOL :)
Oh, and obviously you care or you wouldn't have asked. :) 
I laughed at this board all weekend, almost as much as I laughed when Harvick took Stewart out.

I'll do my best to be there.
