Allow the option to change the standings tie-breaker within a division to total points
We switched our league to a divisional setup this season, and it was not clear when doing so that the standings tie-breaker within a division would be division record instead of total points, with no way to change it. Please add the option to change the tie-breakers in the order each league sees fit. You could have total points, head-to-head record, and division record, and allow leagues to choose in which order they would like to apply the tie-breakers. More options is always better. Without this fix, I think we may just do away with divisions, which we don't want to do, but this is not how we want our league to work.

Agree. Custom tiebreaker is needed.
I agree. We have 12 teams/4 divisions. We would like our league set up the same way, but there isn't even an option to change it. I have been/will be sending out "Adjusted Divisional Rankings" on a Google Doc to all of the league members weekly so that everyone is on the same page with their rankings until Yahoo gives us the option.
If you are not going to use division records to determine playoff seedings, there is no point in having divisions.
You can change your "Playoff Seeding Options: All teams seeded according to overall standings" and that will eliminate the division record being used in your league. This will need an overnight update after you make the change.
