I'd disagree with that rule. Could be an easy following week to make those picks to not earn a strike and picking two really doesn't diminish the overall selection pool. Either three picks the following week or ties=strike. I'd prefer ties as strikes.

They probably should be but I don’t particularly want to change the rules midseason now that it might actually be relevant. (The current rule helps you here, shhhh)


Oh, I thought I got the full strike, not no strike. Please go back to your regularly scheduled not giving me a strike, ps go lions.

(Ties probably *should* be worth half a strike and it's worth revisiting because there is at least one tie every year since they changed the OT rules, but like don't be in a hurry to change anything lol)

Changing the rules next year so that the first tiebreaker after number of strikes is the number of winning picks is essentially the same thing as giving them half a strike so long as no player picks more than one tie.

i think you should get 2 points if you pick a tie
that's way harder

I think current way of handling ties is fine. No strike, ends any streak.

In case it was not accepted Ravens for week 2

For what it's worth, if you take the current rule to its extreme, you can win the league with two strikes, six wins, and nine ties over someone with two strikes and fifteen wins if the six wins are all in a row and the fifteen are spread evenly into three five-game streaks.

That's fine, mostly I just didnt want a strike but making a small adjustment because the ties have been discussed in the past seems ok.
