Default Golf, NASCAR, MLB only comp endings

Seems like we do this every year but maybe we can set ending points ahead of time for once.

Baseball, easy enough to view the All Star break as the natural end of the 1st half competition, yes?

The 18th race in NASCAR is the Quaker State 400 on 7/7....but is that always the 18th race so we can say 1st half ends after it?

Then there's golf- more natural to end the 1st half with a major or start the 2nd half with one? Because the US Open seems to fall near the halfway point every year.

So, when is this "old enough to know better" thing supposed to kick in?

The reason we do is largely because it keeps more people playing the competition all the way thru. Otherwise, in these long competitions (yearly comes to mind), those who fall behind tend to quit playing the port.

Still never understood why there isn't an NBA-only comp. It's the least day-traded sport by far and would at least stir up some trading activity in the NBA sector.

Any possibility to include next season?

When we were adding single sport comps, I was adamant about wanting a new formula in place for the NBA first.......and that still hasn't happened.

Anything is possible

New formula or old, I don't think it will matter. Either way the day-trading of NBA is and will continue to be abysmally low.

An NBA-only comp would help increase day-trading and market moo, at least a little--10 ports @ 10k max shares (eventually as ports grow) = 100k day trading from NBA-only competition alone, which is more than the maximum total shares traded for an NBA player on virtually any given day last season.

So if the goal is to increase activity...

It seems like it has worked in the NFL, PGA, MLB and NASCAR sectors. NHL doesn't need it as much, but would benefit as well from an NHL-only comp.
