    Re: The Final Word Power Poll - Week 4

    I don't understand why they hired Bevell anyway!!!
    He was gb's qb coach when Brett Favre had probably the two worst years of his career in GB...

    We need somebody that knows how to get the most out of our personnel and use that to our advantage...

    As usual, this is based upon the only stat that matters.

    Place Team Wins Losses
    22nd. (tie) Atlanta Falcons 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Buffalo Bills 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Chicago Bears 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Cincinnati Bengals 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Minnesota Vikings 1 3
    22nd. (tie) New York Jets 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Philadelphia Eagles 1 3
    22nd. (tie) San Diego Chargers 1 3

    =Z=
    Once again, the Vikes are getting jobbed.
    The rankings should look something like this:

    22nd. (tie) Minnesota Vikings 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Buffalo Bills 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Cincinnati Bengals 1 3
    22nd. (tie) New York Jets 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Philadelphia Eagles 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Atlanta Falcons 1 3
    22nd. (tie) San Diego Chargers 1 3
    22nd. (tie) Chicago Bears 1 3

    I'm tired of seeing people disrespect the Vikings, completely ignoring the good things they have going for them.
    Like the tie-breaker over the Falcons based on a head-to-head victory.
    Alphabetical-order has screwed us for the last time!

    The Eagles beat the Lions who beat the Vikings who beat the Falcons who beat the Texans who beat the Chiefs who beat the Chargers who beat the Bears.

    Are you following why the staff at TFWPP has chosen the alphabetized standard for listing those who are tied in the rankings?

    The staff at TFWPP puts in so much time already, I think it's not so much to ask them to follow the simple procedure for breaking ties handed down by the NFL:

    Within a Division
    If two teams in the same division finish with identical records, the following tiebreakers will be used, in this order, until a champion is determined.
    1. Head-to-Head
    2. Division Record
    3. Common Games
    4. Conference Record
    5. Strength of Victory
    6. Strength of Schedule
    7. Combined Ranking Among Conference Teams (points scored and points allowed)
    8. Combined Ranking Among All Teams (points scored and points allowed)
    9. Net Points (common games)
    10. Net Points (all games)
    11. Net Touchdowns (all games)

    If three or more teams in the same division finish with identical records, the following tiebreakers will be used, in this order, until a champion is determined.
    1. Head-to-Head
    2. Division Record
    3. Common Games
    4. Conference Record
    5. Strength of Victory
    6. Strength of Schedule
    7. Combined Ranking Among Conference Teams (points scored and points allowed
    8. Combined Ranking Among All Teams (points scored and points allowed
    9. Net Points (common games)
    10. Net Points (all games)
    11. Net Touchdowns (all games)
    *If two clubs remain tied after a third is eliminated during any step, the tie breaker reverts to step 1 of the two-team format.

    Different Divisions
    If two or more teams finish the season tied for one of the two Wild-Card berths, one of the following scenarios will apply. If the tied teams are from the same division, the divisional tie breaker above is used. If the tied teams are from different divisions, the following tiebreakers are used:

    Two Teams
    1. Head-to-Head
    2. Conference Record
    3. Common Games (minimum of four)
    4. Strength of Victory
    5. Strength of Schedule
    6. Combined Ranking Among Conference Teams (points scored and points allowed)
    7. Combined Ranking Among All Teams (points scored and points allowed)
    8. Net Points (conference games)
    9. Net Points (all games)
    10. Net Touchdowns (all games)
    11. Coin Toss

    Three or More Teams
    *If two clubs remain tied after a third is eliminated during any step, the tie breaker reverts to step 1 of the two-team format.

    Start by eliminating all but the highest ranked club in each division by using the divisional tiebreaker above. After the field has been narrowed to no more than one team from each division, the following tiebreakers are used:
    1. Head-to-Head
    2. Conference Record
    3. Common Games (minimum of four)
    4. Strength of Victory
    5. Strength of Schedule
    6. Combined Ranking Among Conference Teams (points scored and points allowed)
    7. Combined Ranking Among All Teams (points scored and points allowed)
    8. Net Points (conference games)
    9. Net Points (all games)
    10. Net Touchdowns (all games)
    11. Coin toss

    Source: http://football.about.com/cs/footbal...iebreakers.htm
    Also, please include embedded video of any coin toss, and preferably a PDF scan of a statement that the video accurately represents the toss signed by a notary.
    This should require only a minimal time investment relative to the already enormous commitment made by the staff.


    Please feel free to disregard this procedure if it does not enhance the standings of the Minnesota Vikings.

    Also, note that the teams should still be listed as (tied).

    Now you two are both cracking me up.

    I tried to explain this whole thing to my fellow cube dwellers but something got lost in translation.
    Regardless, I still laughed.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    This week, TFWPP management splurged and took the staff to Dave & Buster's.
    Each got a card charged with $20 and a free beer.
