Let’s Talk about Stat Corrections

Hi.

We need to talk about stat corrections.

Any fantasy league worth its salt — from Yahoo Fantasy Football to ESPN Fantasy Hockey — issues stat corrections, sometimes several days after the games have been played. Likewise, we also issue stat corrections up to 24 hours after “The Bachelor” has aired.

When we first started this blog, we had a mere handful of points categories that contestants could earn. Scoring was a breeze. We were young. We were so innocent. If stat corrections even existed, they were in their most primitive form — tiny stat correction amoebas.

Each season, we’ve added more and more categories, to your delight and ours. Frankly, I don’t want to live in a world where “wearing a costume or clothing native to another culture/country” isn’t worth five misappropriating points. We enjoy adding new categories each season, even though it makes our jobs infinitely harder when we score. Now, I’m on the lookout for 41 potential points categories to be earned by 20+ contestants every single episode.

When we post the points each Tuesday morning, we have always welcomed comments from y’all suggesting what we might have missed. We also welcome comments from our most enthusiastic fantasy league players, who love to lobby for a points category. We reserve the right to shoot you down, but still, we welcome it. (Giving Vanessa a barf bag doesn’t qualify as “needing medical attention.” It’s the equivalent of handing toilet paper under a bathroom stall to someone with diarrhea. But I digress.)

If you’re bummed/concerned/confused about stat corrections, we want to offer up a really simple solution: check the site on Tuesday night, once the dust has settled and the points have been updated accordingly. Or even Wednesday morning. Or check first thing Tuesday morning, and then update your spreadsheet Tuesday night. There are endless possibilities.

We thank you for playing along with us and would like to whisper a gentle reminder that we do not make any money off of this — it’s free and just for fun.

Now go forth and conquer.

    Thank you for doing all that you do. I was amazed at how upset some
    People were about all the stat corrections this week. All I can say to that is to get a life! These two ladies have actual jobs whose lives don’t revolve around this show! Thank you for continuing to provide us with a free way to celebrate the ridiculousness of this show!

    Thank you for doing an amazing job. You make this fun and definitely make it easier on me and my 17 person league. I don’t know what I would do without you guys. We all love this site and way to track points. Keep up the good work.

  4. Veronica says:

    I’m sorry people are being grouchy with you! We have grown our league to 10 people and wouldn’t be able to do it without you. Thanks for all you do! I’m sure it’s pretty tedious to track it all! I also get a kick out of the wit and humor of each blog entry!

    You are the best! You have brought so much joy into my life and the lives of my 30 bachelor fantasy coaches! I guess what I’m saying is… I know that you’ve been hurt before, and it’s hard to trust again, but I feel like there’s something here, and I want to continue on this journey with you.

      Thank you so much for appreciating what we’ve shared. It’s been really hard to be vulnerable since my best friend’s grandma’s neighbor died in the chainsaw accident of ’09. But with you, I donno — I feel like my walls are coming down again. I really feel a connection.

  6. Erin Volz says:

    At least we know you’re here for the right reasons. Thank you for being vulnerable. xoxo

    • Bach Fantasy says:

      Thank you for being an attentive listener. I never thought I’d feel love like this again. But I just have to trust the process, ya know? I’m really ready for the journey.

  7. Dan says:

    Thank you for everything that you do!

  8. Melanie says:

    Thank you!!! I track while I watch and cross check with yours. If it’s helpful I’m happy to send you my tracking sheet on Monday evening and you can see if there is anything I caught that maybe you didn’t? Perhaps that would minimize the comment situation? Happy to help however I can. grateful for all you do!

  9. Laura says:

    Thanks for doing the hard work!!
    Laura & 10 Lady League are grateful

    Amen Sistas! I totally support and agree with you! Thank you for all you do…so WE don’t have to!
