It can be, but that's where our league's negative trophy has been quite a motivator. Nobody wants to win "IT"!
maybe what I am doing this year would be a good idea for some..
I run 10 team $50 buy-in H2H Cats League with the winners of the playoffs geting 300, 150, 50.. and a $10 per team side pot to pay out $100 to the Winner of Roto.. so its like our league is the best of both worlds.. and the difference between the 2 styles is big enough that it could keep people interested throughout..
I did a mock roto ranking at the end of last year.. just for curiosity (which sparked the sidepot idea) and the team who was ranked 7th in H2H Rankings and missed the playoffs was 3rd in Roto
I have to make sure payout incentives lean more heavily for H2H because thats the league I want to run and Don't want owners just picking a side.. Last year the team that won the whole thing would have won Roto as well .. extra 100 dollars..
anyway thats what I am doing this year .. but I am always looking for good ideas to make things more interesting.. any H2H ideas out there?
