I agree! I could care less if your team scores 200 pts. a week. My goal is to put the best lineup together the week I play your team , so as to get the " W ". If we wind up with the same record , you should have to earn the chance to beat me in the playoffs . I and you have no control over what other teams score. I do control what my team scores by who I decide to play every given week. This decision making is what fantasy is about.

In my YAHOO league you could play me twice during the regular season and beat me by , lets say 90 points , and we both finish with the same record ,say 9-7. The YAHOO tiebreaker is total points scored. In this situation , to determine the final playoff spot , if my team scored 1830 points and yours scored 1829 , I would be awarded the playoff spot or the higher seed in playoffs , maybe a bye. You , were clearly better than me each time you played me and I would reap your glory! This happened to me this year and it cost me a seed that would have put me in the Super Bowl in my league. How would you feel?
Your tiebreaker system for setting the playoffs is flawed! I played a person one time during the year and beat him head-to-head. When it came to setting the playoff seeds he was given a bye because he had 1230 points for the year and I had 1229. We had the same record and I feel head-to-head should be the first tiebreaker. Some teams played each other twice during the season in our ten team league. With your tiebreaker system as it is , a person could win head-to head twice ( maybe even by 75 points per game) and lose out on a playoff spot to that same person because he scored one more point than you during rest of season. That is terrible!!! I did my job as manager against that team and beat him. I can only control what I score against him when I play him. What he scores against someone else is not my concern. My concern is to win each week , which I did against him. Points should only be used if you are tied after head-to-head. This cost me being in the Super Bowl , as I had to play a game the first week and lost because of bad matchups. The next week I scored more points than all the other teams except the top ranked team. If I had gotten the bye I DESERVED , I would be playing for the title. I just don't see how a person could beat me twice head-to-head and have the same record as me and not get the higher seed. That is how YAHOO sees it ? I welcome all comments.
