My vote is to continue the contest with the assumption Troopscott will do what he said.

I do not think it will be fair to let people withdraw after the first game is decided.

I have a copy of all picks except from EdCollins, who said before he might be out without troopscott's bonus.

I would suggest to Ed that he send them to me or post them just to hold his place, without him or anyone giving up their right to withdraw for a refund, pending hearing something from troopscott.

Done. I forwarded my picks to you, that I originally sent to Troopscott on Thursday.

I'm leaning towards your first paragraph, not really agreeing with your second, but not sure what to do about it. I'm suggesting people could perhaps withdraw through tomorrow night if troopscott is still a no-show by then, all are locked in if he does show.

One problem I have is that nobody has troopscotts picks or money in escrow. I'm on the fence about whether he should be required to seed the pool if he's not able to play. But I do think he made a firm committment to provide the seed bonus. Open to discussion.

Right now there's $200 in fees in escrow. 4 prizes.

1st Prize = 65% of entries + $50.00 =$130 + $50
2nd Prize = 15% of entries = $30
3rd Prize = 10% of entries = $20
Booby Prize = 10% of entries + $50.00 = $20 + $50

Placeholder notes:

Standing by to hear from:

Ed Collins re: above
Gordonm888 bowl list copy incomplete - PM sent
Tom - missing tiebreaker



Hopefully Gordo' s missing picks are for games later in the schedule.

Troop's a contender for a prize in Mission's NFL contest, and has been good about posting there. I do hope everything is okay with him, as this radio silence seems out of the ordinary for him.

Thanks for picking up the pieces BBB!

I agree. I think there's a problem.

There's an outside chance he's messing with us, because he did a bit in the coop game, and just watching this thread without signing in. But I'm more concerned than thinking we're being punked.

Gordo gave me a complete list through some of Dec 29. I'm pretty sure it's a copy/paste error, and I expect to amend the picks post once he sees this thread and fixes it, even it it's a bit late. The same deadline of midnight tomorrow ought to be sufficient, but again open to discussion.

Is there a way to verify that the picks sent to Troop are still unopened? If so, then his entry should be allowed until the first game goes off. Otherwise, it would be pretty easy to lock in the best or worst record by fading the group picks.

Personally, I think we hold him to his commitment to provide bonus money, even if he doesn't get his picks in. However, I am willing to consider the extenuating circumstances.

Each of you can look at your outbox. It will show whether what you sent to troopscott was opened by him.

I was waiting for an answer to "who is holding the picks?" before I sent mine, so I didn't send to troopscott, and can't verify on my own PM what he's done. But, he hasn't signed in since Dec 7. If he hasn't signed in, he hasn't read any PMs. So I would bet no one's picks have been seen by him.
