I'm going to go ahead and address the things that have come up in this thread. I will also be sending all invitations and payment info PM's tomorrow, sorry I'm a bit behind recently.
That's awesome, Ed, and I thank you again for doing that!
RULES REGARDING MISPICKS:
When it comes to making deliberately offsetting Picks, any deliberately offsetting Picks or multiples of the same Pick will be considered patently against the Rules. The Official Rules concerning mispicks shall be as follows:
1.) If you have sent Picks that contain any mispicks and HAVE NOT used your Skip Week, then the Week upon which you sent the mispicks shall automatically constitute your Skip Week and your picks will not be considered for that week at all.
2.) If you have sent Picks that contain any mispicks and HAVE used your Skip Week, then your Standings will automatically reflect a record of 0-5 for the week in question and you will be ineligible to win any prizes other than 1st Place (or 1st-3rd given sufficient players).
In short, mispicks effectively now constitute a Skip Week.
I am basically mirroring what EdCollins said on that one if we're talking about that Week 1 thing. JoelDeze was under the impression that making a Confidence Pick counted as two Picks both for the purposes of Standings as well as the purposes of making five unique Picks. The decision that was made was to allow JoelDeze's four Picks (inclusive of one Confidence Pick) to stand as opposed to forcing him to use his Skip Week.
I really don't see what was, 'Horrendous,' about the decision as I cannot see what possible advantage allowing that set of Picks gave JoelDeze. It was Week 1.
However, there shall be no further such rulings of that nature. Any inadequate (for any reason) set of Picks shall henceforth result in the use of one Skip Week, assuming a player has one to use. If the player does not have one to use, any fouled set of Picks will result in a 0-5 week and the inability to win any consolation prizes.
Thus, fouling a set of Picks for any reason results only in a disadvantage.
Vultures can't be choosers.
