IMO, you guys should have the tied teams total the money for 1st and 2nd and split it, like you suggested. That is the most fair way to do it. One other thing, maybe you should point out to team A that they don't actually have the best winning percentage. If you solve for win % using wins/(wins+losses) team B would finish first with .624 then team A with .620. To be honest, I'm not sure how Yahoo got .611, maybe you add ties in somehow but I dunno. Anyway, I'd have teams A and B do what teams C and D are doing because it is the only reasonable way to do it.
I hear what you are saying about win %, but yahoo takes in to account ties by adding half of their total to your wins and then dividing by toatl number of games. Thus, a tie affects your record as both 0.5 win and 0.5 loss.
Keep it coming guys, you are making good points that maybe haven't been considered by all parties.
