If you got the points from week 1 everyone would just pick the best players for the most points?

Defeats the point if you can use hindsight.

But most people have been doing it since week one. So its kinda unfair that if they join a league a week later than everyone else they miss out on a fair few point.
I dont think any of you know where I'm coming from.

I don't quite know where you're coming from either. The whole point of league administrators being able to select what week the points count from is so that if someone joins late they don't miss out on points. The league adminstrator can choose to select week 0 to give an advantage to those in it from the start, but then its unfair to those who joined up later. But yeah I don't know when the earliest late person joined fantasy football in our lboro league - I assume week 22 though.

Their fault for being late. Be organised more

I know where you're coming from. I started in week one, but because I've joined the league late, I start over 100 points behind, even though I did okay in gameweek 23 (74 points I think). I'm not too bothered, still confident of winning!

If you joined in gameweek 24, and picked the players with the highest points, it wouldn't mean if the league was set to start from gameweek one, you'd get those points...

It's to stop people joining the league and automatically taking top spot off people who have been in the league longer if they had more points originally.

Well I've done ok in previous years; top 25,000, 50,000 and 8,000 the three years I've done it. And about 800th currently. Out of 1.85 million that's not too shabby! A lot of people take this one seriously, as it's probably the 2nd biggest in England behind The Sun one I'd expect!

Nick Simmons has Ronaldo, Gerrard and Lampard. We have no hope. Down to second by 8 points and he still has scouse-scum and fat frank still to play.

Ha, well I think Gerrard will go in two-footed on Lampard, and Lampard will react to it so a few minus points may help you all :P.

Hopefully theyll kill each other. Would probably be the funniest thing i had seen in ages. Would solve Capello's selection problem too, just pick Barry and Carrick.
