2017 summary of all leagues
« on: October 24, 2017, 11:12:20 AM »
Time to wrap it up. Winners, losers, curiosities:

UCI World Tour
With Pozzovivo and Albasini ageing like good wine, Kwiato winning left and right again, plus a solid year for Portuguese cycling, there could only be one winner! Congrats to Luis :Lampre:, who deservedly dominated the standings after half a decade in top-5 year after year! Second place is a bit too close too call (or I'm too lazy to manually implement the 8-riders-per-event rule, tomaito tomahto), but it's scary to think what would have happened if Froomdog had scored any points before July!

Incidentally, the winner in the points-per-$ competition among all riders paid above $30 is... and I kid you not... Sander Armee :o

Country Roads
I must admit I really like the scoring being relative. It means a lot of flip-flopping in the standings all the way to the last day! That being said, :BMC: Joel wins comfortably thanks to a mixture of proven scorers (GVA, Dan M), proud geezers (Berti, Chavanel), and new kids on the block (Mr. Greenroads, Daniel Martinez).

Rainbow Cup
Halfway through the season, :Vlaanderen: Davy and :RadioShack: myself were leading the Yates Family Feud. Then he went with Trentin and I went with Coquard, yay... In a late twist, Bryant almost stole the whole thing following a nice autumn from Bling and Wellens!

Fine Young Cannibals
For the longest time, we were all scoring below 200, but it was just silence before the storm as more and more giants were reaching their 2016 cap. Then, suddenly Davy embarrassed the rest of us. Chapeau!

Wall Street
Having recently been selected the best thing on the internet outside of google searches and cat videos, we're excited to continue denying our gambling addiction!

Quick Fixes
Will return in a much more interesting format, but this year it was still about picking the winner. Which most people didn't udnerstand. Which created ridiculous drafts like Davy's GVA-drafted-6th-gate or your truly's gimme-Froome-with-the-10th-pick. Plus an all-Dutch success in the Giro: :Vacansoleil: Martin & Major Tom (who really did take his protein pills and put his helmet on), :Lampre: Froomy Vuelta, and :Sky: Tom using the Kwiato-Albasini dynamic duo to clean up the Ardennes.

Invitational
Cancelled due to low interest.

What next?
  • I'm working on the 2018 spreadsheet as we speak.
  • Archived 2017 spreadsheet available here.
  • Could anybody help count up 2017 predictions?
  • Free drops here.
  • We'll start the main game (both auctions and draft) on Sunday Nov 5, because it's easy to remember remember the fifth of November!

Glad to hear the fame after winning it all didn't compromise your integrity! Thanks :toast:

Having now played this game for 5 years, I think I have come in the top 5 each season if I remember correctly (5th the past 3 years and 4th the one before that and 2nd in my debut season), just cant seem to get to that top.
At least I seem to be a model for consistency

FYI this weekend I was shocked to discovered at least 5 teams in the main game had a rider's score at zero and never reported it. (Two middle name changes and 4-5 of the usual "space after the name" bugs.)
I corrected the names, and the overall rankings suddenly changed in three instances. Including the 2nd place.

Firstly, it's kinda BooYah! ty in itself that some people don't care enough to monitor their own results. Not cool, guys...
Secondly, your lack of attention produced an unfair draft order.

Therefore, I decided to introduce a small point penalty for this lack of attention, which in turn lets us keep the results as announced originally.
Maybe that decision will make everybody care a bit more in the future.

Maybe move the sum column next to the rider name as part of the column freeze where it will be more visible?
