Three way tie for a wildcard.

Team A & B are in the same division.

Team A is 1-1 against team B and did not play C Points 380 Div record 1-4-1

Team B is 1-1 against team A and did not play C Points 344 Div record 3-3-0

Team C is 0-0 against team A & B Points 371

HTH is obviously first, but I can't remember if you should break the division tie first or go straight to points

I don't know about your league, but in most leagues it's division record before points.It seems that team C is not in the same division as these guys (he hasn't played either team), so if your tiebreaker goes head to head and then points, then it would seem to me that:Team B gets the nod over team A to get out of the divison:But team C has more points than team b so team C gets the last spot

usually this is in the league's rules. FWIW, I'd prefer to use total points as the tiebreaker.

TO BREAK A TIE FOR THE WILD-CARD TEAM

If it is necessary to break ties to determine the two Wild-Card clubs from each conference, the following steps will be taken.

1. If the tied clubs are from the same division, apply division tie breaker.

2. If the tied clubs are from different divisions, apply the following steps.

Two Clubs

1. Head-to-head, if applicable.

2. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.

3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.

4. Strength of victory.

5. Strength of schedule.

6. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.

7. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.

8. Best net points in conference games.

9. Best net points in all games.

10. Best net touchdowns in all games.

11. Coin toss.

Three or More Clubs

(Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated, tie breaker reverts to step 1 of applicable two-club format.)

1. Apply division tie breaker to eliminate all but the highest ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2. The original seeding within a division upon application of the division tie breaker remains the same for all subsequent applications of the procedure that are necessary to identify the two Wild-Card participants.

2. Head-to-head sweep. (Applicable only if one club has defeated each of the others or if one club has lost to each of the others.)

3. Best won-lost-tied percentage in games played within the conference.

4. Best won-lost-tied percentage in common games, minimum of four.

5. Strength of victory.

6. Strength of schedule.

7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed.

8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed.

9. Best net points in conference games.

10. Best net points in all games.

11. Best net touchdowns in all games.

12. Coin toss

When the first Wild-Card team has been identified, the procedure is repeated to name the second Wild-Card, i.e., eliminate all but the highest-ranked club in each division prior to proceeding to step 2. In situations where three or more teams from the same division are involved in the procedure, the original seeding of the teams remains the same for subsequent applications of the tie breaker if the top-ranked team in that division qualifies for a Wild-Card berth.
So with that said, break the team A and team B tie first and the winner go against team C... At least that would be the way that I would do it...

Thanks, this helps. Our rules are 20 years old, the owners voted to use a power poll (points,breakdown,etc) instead of the old school way to do seedings for the first time. I just kept getting the feeling that I was doing it wrong for some reason since I was breaking the division tie for a non division(wildcard) spot.

Break that tie.Winner gets pitted against Team CIf you don't so division best then H2H tiebreak should be skipped because none of the teams swept any of the other tied teams. neither should division record be used because they are not all in the same division.
 
This shoulda got bumped a week ago so some of these commishes could make sure they got their rules set up in time for this season.

the better team is always the team with the most points. I don't know why so many leagues try to hide this with other tie breakers. This is not real football, we can't control points against.
All Play Record > Total Points. A team that scored 80 points, 80 points, and 80 points is usually a better team than a team that scored 10 points, 10 points, and 300 points... regardless of what the total points say.

Was going to suggest the same thing.
