Not to be one to criticise but is band 1 not really 4 choices. 0-3 rather than 1-3 if a penalty win counts as a 1 point win. I meant to say this during the league but didnít want to look like I was interfering. Also forgot to pick 1 point wins that day because I am an idiot

Show me a team that won a game by 0 and then weíll talk.

The organiser and the champ at loggerheads and the Championship hasn't thrown in. One more poster joins in and we have a melee

I think 2 people makes it a melee to be fair.

The point Iím making is the game can finish in any of the following ways. A match can end after normal time with a result in any of the brackets. Each bracket has theoretically the same chances as they are all the same width. Similarly it can end after extra time with a result in any of the three brackets. Or the result can end after penalties but if it does the result is only in one bracket. So statistically speaking if you pick a win in bracket one you have an extra chance of being right that you donít get in any other bracket.

Iím happy with whatever you decide. Itís your competition and you ran it so well previously itís just something that struck me

Yes...a result of a 1 point winning margin can occur 3 ways - after 70 mins, AET, or after penalties.  Other margins can occur only twice, although a 10 point winning margin AET would indeed be rare.

So the contestants that choose a bracket 1 winning margin should have a slight advantage.

Yes thatís exactly what I was trying to say. That and that I noticed said advantage before the final round of league games and then didnít use it (picking two two point wins instead) because I am an idiot. Like the guy who knows the answer to the Monty Hall problem but ignores it anyway

I think David needs a one game ban for his insolence.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

Sure I had a self imposed five game ban and still won the league at a canter*
