Otherwise we would just blindly use #2 every year as the standard and not think of each season as an individual closed system. We all know that there are a lot of seasons where that would make absolutely no sense. The individual nuances and tweaks that I, and others, have added, get us closer to a useable shorthand system, not further away. It’s obvious that tweaks are required. The only question is which tweaks get us closer.
1. *** No they aren't. Their totals aren't far enough away from the pack to make them outliers.

2. *** Yes there is... the whole point of making a "system" is to remove the influence of the user so that everyone knows what they are looking at and it is applied fairly across the board.
