Victory Points?

I see the standings in our League Site also show Victory points but I don't see anything in the rules about them. Are they just FYI only, or do they impact playoff slots?

VP's are what determines playoff teams and seeding. 2 points for a win, 1 for a tie (which we never have) and 0 for a loss.

2 points for being top-3 scoring team for the week, 1 point for being 4-6 in scoring.

I'm surprised it is not in the bylaws somewhere.

Hmmm. so it seems I need to win more games and score more points. I definitely need to change my current strategy.

8 - Playoffs

The playoffs will begin in week 14. The 4 division winners and 2 wild card teams will advance. The 2 Wild Card Teams will be comprised of the two teams with the highest VP's that did not win a division. Playoff seeding will be based on VP's only. Tie-breakers will be decided by Total Points 1st and Head to Head 2nd.


To that point I'll add BIll's explanation of how they are distributed

No you don't. I have parlayed that low VP strategy into two consecutive toilet bowl championships which is really awesome.
