I replied to your u2u, but I will post here as well for anyone who still reads this (probably no one):
This is direct from the League Settings > Playoff Seeding Tie Breaker: If Head-to-Head Record is selected, Total Points For, Intra Division Record (if
your league has multiple divisions), and Total Points Against will be used as further tie breakers (in that order).
Since the Sleepers split the head-to-head matchups with the Mod Squad and Sex Machine, it goes to Total Points For. The Total Points For played out
Canadian Mod Squad: 2025
Team Sex Machine: 2015
URanus Sleepers: 1972
That's why Mod Squad and Sex Machine are in. I can only select one tie-breaker, to which I chose head-to-head, which I assume we all agree is the
best one. After that, it's ESPN's rules. It does not allow me to customize additional tie-breakers, as far as I know. So I do apologize, but I have
no power over it.
As a side note... it's sad that four of the six playoff teams are no better than 7-7... What is this, the NFC West?
I'll be taking volunteers to analyze why only two teams finished above .500. That's only 20% of the league. That is historically low. In 2010, 41.6%
of the league finished above .500; 2009 it was 40%; and 2008 it was 50%. Realistically, it should be between that 40-50% mark. I don't think it's
entirely because of the two QB thing. If anyone has any ideas as to why this happened, I'd be grateful if you shared so I can fix it next season.
