Having collected votes for three ATDs and a few MLDs, I can tell you that this is extremely rare, and you know that.

And if it's really that close, why shouldn't some "intangible" factor affect matters in a small way? That happens in real life. You often bemoan the predictability of the drafts and the higher seeds winning even though real life has epic upsets up a regular basis.
