The Karma Bank is not FDIC Insured
After reading through your comments, I've come to the conclusion that the Karma Bank should close. Depositors will receive two bags of oyster crackers instead of their original deposits. However, for those of you that thought it was interesting, but flawed, I think you're right. So instead, we're going to try and figure out a way of more quantifiably tracking the fortune and misfortune of a season. My thought now is that we provide an adjusted final score, in which we deduct goals that should not have been allowed from both sides, and add on goals that should have been awarded (or likely awarded) to both sides. Yes, it's still subjective, but I think that's the route we'll take. So, every time United earns the benefit of the doubt on an off-side call they didn't earn, and the ball subsequently goes in the net, we'll adjust the score for United down one. Every time United earns a penalty that isn't called, we'll add a goal (yes, not all penalties are converted, but hey.) For the Kansas City Game, the final score was 2-1. Adjusting that score would be 1 goal for United on the Mediate Penalty, and 1 goal for Kansas City on the poor off-side call, leading to an adjusted score of KC 3 : 1 DC. How does that sound? Right now, this is just a proposal, and I am more than willing to tinker and adjust. Also, comments in the First Impressions posts will be stolen referenced to help fill out the debriefs, so feel free to offer your own analysis and comment on the action.
