Mad Scientist, I kind of like that. With everyone only playing roughly a half dozen matches, I figure I won't have the proper formula until 3/4 way through the season. But I think you're dead on in what you're saying. I looked at the record for one of the brand new teams in last year's men's 3.0 league. They lost every match until close to the end of the season at which point they went 3-1.
