One thing that can be done pretty quickly from the website data (just to give a flavor of what would happen) would be to stick with the point per mile but to change the math so that you get 30 points per ride plus 20 extra points if you do more than a sleaze ride. So a 1 mile ride would be worth 31, a 2 mile ride worth 52, a 3 mile ride worth 53, etc. (One can easily get the sleaze rides by team from that leaderboard to know how many rides went 2 miles or more; more access is needed to get the 3rd mile amounts.) Doing that:

    1. TENacious Decimators - Team 10 BAFS 2017
    2. Totally Spoked - BAFS'17 Team 15
    3. Podium! Team 7 Freezing Saddles 2017
    4. Fourmidable Snow Flakes - BAFS17 Team4
    5. Casual Six - BAFS 2017
    6. BAFS17 Team 18: Merry Band of Idiots
    7. 5 and Dime
    8. Team 11 - BAFS 2017. "Up to Eleven"
    9. Squadra Quattordici BAFS2017
    10. 2Fast, 2Frozen


    Top 3 stay the same, with a little bit of shuffling after that.
    So basically, no matter what you do, the Tenacious Decimators are still the best Freezing Saddles team of all time.

    Not quite. If it became 25 points instead of 20 for going 2 miles or more per ride, the Tenacious Decimators fall to 2nd place. There's a tipping point in this scoring setup where the Totally Spoked's extra rides with fewer sleaze rides overcome the mileage deficit.

    If we go with my earlier straw man (count the bottom 2 scores) - Casual Six wins. As we should with our depth.

    Freezing Saddles Fantasy League (FSFL) discussions aside, this is how I view FS too and I'd be bummed if I ended up on a team that was mostly people that I already am friends with. If it weren't for having Ian on my team the first year, I might not have talked to a single person at opening happy hour. (His stellar advice was, "Everyone here rides a bike, talk to them about bikes.") I also wouldn't have attended my first coffee club without him. Forever grateful, even though he's forever banned from Team Lumberjack.

    Well, dang, we obviously have to go with the system that makes Casual Six win! And I'm not even slightly influenced in that view by having been their captain.

    Nominate a few candidates for FS dictator and vote, the winner makes all the rules. No more debates.

    I'd vote for you, Steve. (Honestly, there aren't many/any that have invested more energy/though/analysis into the teams, the scoring, the rules.)
