Default league questions

im starting a league with my friends and some co-workers, and got a question, some of the people are complaining about why we are not having a handicap system in place, everyone that is playing can throw about the same distance and everything with the exception of like 2 people, its a 33 dollar league runs for 7 months, so i guess my question is how do i get those people to play without doing a handicap

If you put in a handicap to please those people, you'll lose others who don't want one.

Neither is right or wrong, but comfort yourself by picking one, and ignoring the complaints. Or set up 2 leagues.

Sounds like your group may be too small for divisions.

All leagues I have played in are 8 weeks and they split into divisions after 3-4 weeks of play. Even if you split into an A or B pool that may help. Regardless, when the splits hit everyone that lands at the bottom of a division is going to give you an ear full, even if your decision is 100% statistically driven.

Also, if we are talking $33 for seven months and people are complaining about handicaps you may just want to let them peace out.

Change your format to random draw doubles. Singles without a handicap is a recipe for a lot of complaining imo you can also add a point system all places depending on how much of a turn out you get

This seems like a colossal waste of time.

I'd force one of those 2 to do all of the admin work to keep the handicap league running if they are so insistent on it.

Damn, does everyone in Fargo use a woodchipper to solve every problem, no matter how small?
