For the playoffs the top 8 from the year long and the top 5 from the 2nd half will qualify. If you meet both requirements you get a bye in the first round.

First Round of the Playoffs will go from Monday 16 to Sunday 22 -- The bottom three scorers will get knocked out.
Second Round of the Playoffs will go from Tuesday 24 to Monday 30 -- The bottom three scorers will get knocked out.
The Finals of the playoffs will go for the entirety of April -- The top scorer will be crowned champion.

I am trying to figure out how to give an advantage to those that scored highly? or should they get no advantage at all?

Right, this is the third time I have written, so just ask if you need more explanation. I'm going to promote for the week, so how we go. But regardless of whether we get more people or not I am splitting it into two sets of standings: year long standings, and 2nd half (after week 8) standings.

For example, week 9 and onwards will count towards both sets of standings.

The 2nd half standings also allow Prophetic and wildcatsfan1 to get a new lease on life as well =P

Ouch, not picking my own games hurt me.

You only missed one week in the end...

You picked in S7. I generically picked for you (teams with best record by 5-8) in W8.

=)

I like the playoff format, a creative idea. I think the bye weeks cover the advantage for the teams that score highly. You could add in an extra bye for the highest overall scoring team that misses out on getting a bye and/or a bye for the highest scoring second half team that misses out on getting a bye via the rules stated, to reward the best newcomer and the best long term player. But I think you did a great job as written.

Well either you forgot to add my Week 8 score of I'm not suppose to be that high at 7th. Unless I completely don't understand how math works and 193 is no more than 214, 205, and 200.
