    System will remain the same unless I see many many requests otherwise.

    True, TheBoss does a great job there. But if you're dealing with some crisis then you might miss a week or two and then the whole season is a bust. Not a bit deal but dropping the worst week or two for people might keep more players engaged to the end.

    The problem with that is that some weeks have 10 games, other weeks 6 games or 8 games etc., it can get a little complicated doing that.

    Still in favour of two bonus points for the weekly highest points scorer. Bit of a reward and can make all the difference as the weeks go on, especially if someone happens to miss a week. Maybe a compromise in place of dropping a week for everyone.

    Right, I have done some thinking about us. This is what I suggest:

    Top 5 players in each series of matches (not including catchup games), will receive bonus points:

    1st 10
    2nd 08
    3rd 06
    4th 04
    5th 02

    I think those who do well deserve some merit, when I was updating the table last season, I seen some players consistently coming in those regions and where somehow not doing as well as one would think, so I think top 5 is fair. In the event of players sharing positions, they will be deemed the same so if 2 or more players are equal first for example, both receive 10 points. Plus it gives players who stuck in mid table a chance to catch the leaders, as it is really difficult for users in those positions to gain on them as the points system is a bit rigid and can almost take a whole season to gain a small amount of points on users above them.

    As I said before dropping a week would be a pain to administer as some weeks have less games than others and would be unfair to certain users. ( I'm taking it too seriously aren't I! ), So I think this bonus structure can help those who miss the odd week to catch back up.

    Virgins or a jersey or justified smugness.

    Virgins are over-rated
