what should be the 1st thing to decide a tie?

1) Head-to-Head
2) Point Differential in game(s)
3) Division Record
4) Coin Flip....or something?


What you think?

Head-to-head, division record, common opponents, coin flip......

I think in a tie breaker, it would be cool to have the two teams involved in a tie breaker play an extra game to decide who wins the tie breaker. Head to head should decide who plays the tie breaker game at home, followed by divisional record, point differential, and then points scored in that order.

no way should point total determine a tie-break, no way....

Im for Baz or Ice's theory, but I need more people to say what they think.

I was thinking of it as a last option, of course I think head to head, divisional record, etc are more important. However, point total is better than a coin flip.

It is unfair to do point-differential. Both TerryTate and I didn't get to play Showtime, so that is one less game for us to accumulate points. We just can't use point-differential......

Well, what are you going to have after head to head and divisional record? Common opponents is pointless since we all played the same people.

I think having to play an extra game is the best idea. If there is a tie, have the two teams fight it out to see who wins the tie breaker.

Good call, I forgot we all played the same opponents. I guess an extra game is the way to go......

extra shot for playoffs, its do-able in madden cause our players dont suffer from fatigue for obvious reasons....

Head-to-head, then one more game. Thats the only way it should be. If you beat the guy you tied with twice, there is no need for a 3rd game, so I think this is the best solution......
