I have a question:
If TOFU and ACE finish the league with an equal amount of points, but TOFU finishes with zero losses (beating ACE twice) but ACE has a bigger game differential, will ACE win the league?
I just want to make sure I am reading it the same way. It seems a bit ridiculous game differential would take precedence over head-to-head victories at the end of the league. If I am incorrect, then please forgive my reaction.
i think it's made pretty clear in the rules, if there is a tie you go to the following tie breaker:
1) amount of points
2) overall game difference
3) head to head game difference
And no I don't think it's ridiculous at all, even if it doesn't suit you in this case.
In european football, you have different tie breaker rules
in the french and english leagues; in case of a point tie, the overall goal difference is the first tie breaker followed by head to head
in the spanish league and in continental competitions: first goes head to head results, then overall goal difference
in the italian league: an extra couple of tie breaker games are played
These are all different ways of understanding what being the champion means... the best regularity throughout the entire competition, or beating in head to head your rival. Both point of views are totally fair, and for the CL6 we all knew before the competition started what the rule was.
