    So are you currently using Custom Points as a standings setting for your league? If the number of forfeits isn't really big, you can go into each of those games and assign a custom point total to make sure the standings are correct. Totally understand the request if there are a lot of forfeits as it would not be ideal to do that over and over and over.

    It is also better to show up as forfeit, just like cancelled does

    Has there been any movement on this Suggestion? as I really could be using this right now.  We switched to the bonus point system and I don't think teams forfeiting match should get bonus point because within 7 pts.  I have to now go in and customly edit that match per forfeit.  Please resolve this sooner rather than later thank you

    In Baseball/Softball a forfeit is typically scored as a 7-0 or 9-0 loss for the forfeiting team.

    In our point system, we also assess a 3 point penalty (teams get 3 points for a win) so a forfeit is actually 2 losses in the standings. We can do a Kluge in the score reporting by adjusting the points but an automatic penalty for a forfeit would be nice.

    might I add the ability to adjust the amount of points it affects a given team.. i.e in our rugby conference we give teams a 7 point differential between the teams.

    Yes please!  

    Every season I have to copy the standings over to excel, enter any forfeit points and post as a document to our site so members can see who is REALLY in first place.  We hit a club and all teams of that gender with -5 for forfeit plus monetary fines.
