For those managers new to MFLS, ADPR is the Alpine Division Power Rating. It was created by former MFLS manager Alpine Dream to measure the strength of each division. The formula may be found on the home page, which is still up:

http://home.comcast.net/~jckilman/ADPR/ADPR.htm

My week one fantasy results yield the following:

Division | ADPR
All American Premier League 25
Bobo Liga 18
Brew City FA 18
USA vs World 17
Division of Great Significance 12

The prediction results are:

Division | ADPR
La Armada Invencible 22
U S National Team 19
All American Premier League 19
Brew City FA 14
USA vs World 14

I haven't done a lot of validation on the divisions so this may not be one hundred percent correct. I'll continue to go through it this week and try to get a graphic up as I did last year.

Last year, Brew City FA took top honors in both fantasy and prediction.

I've posted on the Brew City web site two graphs showing the ADPR results over time for the first six weeks of this season.

Is this the year for UvW? I'm in 7th there despite being 17th
overall. I would be in 4th in both Brew City and AAPL.
Hopefully UvW can keep it up!

I'll update the ADPR numbers this week and share them with the group. I update them every week for the weekly Brew City results post.

ADPR by its' very acronym is of a different time and a different place. At that time there were easily over a thousand managers competing, closer to two thousand. Points were awarded to a division if they had a manger in the top 100.
Great idea, great thread, great banter, great formula when mfls carried aforementioned number of teams.

As this is being posted mfls is at 440 managers.

Division shouldn't get any recognition just because you have a manager in the top 25 percent. That means absolutely nothing today. Factor in your ghost teams etcetera one could argue the active managers are likely around 300.

Want a real power rating per division? With all due respect to Alpine will post this thread under DPR. Like I wrote the ADPR was from a different time.

Here are updated ADPR graphs for both fantasy and prediction points through week ten. The top eight teams are listed in terms of their combined scores. Iíve synchronized the colors of the division between the graphs.

Giggity makes a good case for updating Alpine Dreamís model. We have only about one tenth of the teams that we had when the power rating was first established. The APDR look at teams that are ranked in the top one hundred and assigns points accordingly.

The argument is that given the reduction in teams, that we should only consider teams in the top twenty-five. While acknowledging the validity of that measurement, I believe the ADPR formula remains a better measurement for two reasons: (1) Limiting the teams to only the top twenty-five makes the division rating rather shallow. A division need have only a small number of strong teams to receive a high score. The spirit of the measurement looks at a much broader number of teams in the division to judge its strength. (2) While the number of teams in MFLS is much less than in years past, the number of active managers and active division has really not changed that much. The loss of the SBI division was significant, but otherwise I donít feel that the number of actively participating managers is that much different, especially among those teams in the well-established divisions. (I would love to do a study of zombie teams one day.) For those reasons I feel the division strength should be measured beyond the top twenty-five.

The bottom line is that both measurements are valid, just different.

I agree Dan, both measurements are valid and both give
different perspectives and overall "big picture" gained from
looking at the combination of the top 25 as well as those in the
top 100 (who hope to make it into the top 25 in the near
future!)

I've updated the ADPR standings through week 20. I've also made it a permanent page in the Brew City FA web site.
