Hognostications 2012

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

I know. I think I won at least one of those.

Deadskins wrote:If we had to, we could go back through each week and add up the tie-breaker point differentials to get a winner. If it was still tied? Who knows?


If we had to, we could. Was that prodcedure in place last year? Hoss implied no such provision was in place.

Either way we might want to have something in place this year. Maybe ESPN already has something.

ACW - whatcha got?

You know, it's funny. I ALWAYS pick against the 'Skins. That way, if they win great, if they lose, well, at least I get a point.

PS - Last year darn near ended in a tie and no tie-break was in place. Maybe we should discuss that.

Wasn't the Monday score the tie breaker in the past.

Yes - each week. We are talking about a tie for total picks correct at the end of the year ... at least ACW and I are. 8)

I am too, and you wouldn't know this, because you didn't participate back in the early days when we had a program tracking the results, but the Monday night tiebreaker was kept as a running total that broke ties on the season results as well. Wouldn't want to do it manually, but there definitely was a tiebreaking system in place.

So either it was not in place last year or Hoss (the man who ran it in 2011) was wrong ... which would make me wrong (though I was quoting "the horse's mouth" as it were).

Got any documentation? I at least have a quote from Hoss.

Oh, and stop top posting her threads! [-X

You got me on post padding but where's the season-long tie-break rule?

Is it the TB average between 6th and 7th?

Were you running it then?

Did Hoss take over?

Yes, the TB average was used as a seasonal tie break. No, I never ran the competition. Hoss took over when the program broke down. Many thanks, BTW, Hoss!
