Pool Commissioners, when setting up their pool, may choose to keep their scoring system simple or create a custom scoring matrix.
With this option, a member will receive the number of points assigned to a team each time that team wins. A winning team is awarded that number of points regardless of which playoff round the win comes in.
With this option, Administrator's can create a custom multiplier for each round of the playoffs. A member will receive the number of points assigned to a team TIMES the multiplier assigned for that round.
|Wild Card Weekend||10|
Example: The Administrator point multipliers are shown to the left and his pool's scoring matrix is to the right.
In this custom scoring example, if pool member assigns 9 points to the Indianapolis Colts, the member is awarded 108 points when the Colts win their Divisional Round game. When the Colts go on to win the AFC Championship game, the member is awarded another 126 points.
|Wild Card||Division.||Conf. Champ.||Super Bowl|
