First off - you don't lose.
Its the difference between a win and a tie.
There were no real voices against that I can recall back when we discussed this - other than some wanting to use their most recent line-up rather than a set point total. That option would result in some losses which I did not agree with.
This keeps it interesting to a degree - if you're playing someone that doesn't post a lineup, and you had 17 points as a team, do you really deserve 3 points? I think a tie is a fair result? Maybe it should be a tie for the team that posted, and still count as a loss for the team that didn't?
Hey, I'm just glad someone responded to my note about it - second week in a row I posted about it
Let me know what you think - I'm just trying to keep things interesting - and if we have 4 people not playing every week ,thats a lot of weeks where all you have to do is put down a list of players, not caring if they are suiting up or not, and you win.
