The Scoring System!

We got this entire idea from Grantland, the amazing blog put together by Bill Simmons and his team. We just took the idea and ran. So, here's the breakdown of point assignments. 

Scoring System

If the commissioner determines that a team member has committed any of the following, that team receives the corresponding number of points. Gray areas abound, so all scoring is at the discretion of the commissioner.
