comment Is this custom table tennis ladder fair?
i think in a friendly league it might be ok, but how this is calculated might cause confusion so it is best to be clear how you are calculating everything. :-)

if player A scored 20, 50% of this is 10 so player B must need more than 10 for points. however if you start with Player B whoe scores 10 and you add 50% to see if player A is close enough you end up with player A only needing 15 points. basically you haven't specified how you are calculating the 50% rule in the third if statement in your bullet list.

well if 50% was the difference they would meet criteria A and B in the if statements of point 3. would want to make sure this doesn't happen. being 50% ahead of the loser is different to being within 50% of the winner.

... you also say if W and L are within 50% of points, how are you calculating this, L is within 50% of the winners score or W is less than 50% ahead of L's score. -- just some thoughts

comment Is this custom table tennis ladder fair?
have no knowledge of table teniis but: "has 50% or more", "has 50% or less". what happens if it is exactly 50% ? the easiest thing to do would be create 4 or 5 random players, and play out a few games (toss a coin for the winner) and see how the league stacks up. questions i would ask is if there is enough incentive for the table leader to accept any challenges from lower players and conversely would lower placed players only ever challenge top places in the table.

comment Has 4-6-0 ever worked in high level football?
United played with Rooney Tevez and Ronaldo in rotation, with non of them being a 'permanent' striker (no 9).

comment Why did Greece go through over Russia in Euro 2012?
It wouldn't have helped in that instance had it been implemented, but that was why it was introduced to give another layer before relying on goal difference.

comment How does the match time work in soccer?
commonly in the premier league injury time is around 4 minutes. most adhere to the 30 seconds per substitution rule, which could mean 3 minutes. but yes it's the at the referees discretion.

comment Why do Rangers need to win support of 7 of the other 11 clubs in the SPL
makes sense, automatically assumed club 12 would be the newco and wouldn't vote. so 6 from 11 would be enough. Will be interesting to see how they vote. massive fanbase if it is New Rangers and good income for the league but also a negative that they should be punished fairly.
