Milford..

What happens now that one of the matches has been played? Can people still play? If you enter late do you automatically lose your 5 point selection? (That would make sense, coupled with not being able to choose the match in question, obviously.)

Generally it's copacetic to pick games that haven't happened yet but that requires an honor system. I mean who the hell would cheat at a pickem for BB though with no stakes? Wink

Just pick from the unplayed matches. It should not be a problem.

And congrats on the round one win Coca Loca.

The survivor pick is a sub game. As long as you get it right you stay in the sub game for next week. The last person to get the pick wrong gets some bonus points.

Every day when I get into work, usually around 15:00 BB time I make sure if any matches have been played on the pickers card and move them to the bottom with the score and so forth.

You can always submit a card after games have been played.

*You just cannot select a previously played match
*Your choices of matches are obviously dwindling away. So you do not have the luxury of picking from 10 matches.
*Chances are if you do not submit a card by mid day on Sunday you most likely will be out for that round as there will be under 5 matches left, maybe.
*If you miss a round that is no big deal. You will just take the score of the "Peoples Picks" as your own. You can only do that though 2 times during the tournament.

Ah thanks - I nearly threw the flings in there and then swapped them out since I didn't know what it was but was unlikely to be good for flings Smile

FWIW, I usually do the people's picks when I'm in the tourney and make actual picks when I'm out. I don't like betting on myself. Too much pressure.

I was hanging out in the penthouse last night and just happened to glance at the FUMBBL Cup main page.

Are we giving out a Fan Favorite award or awards in this years FC?

Milford is also pondering if there is one admin for the FC who is in charge of collecting PM's from coaches concerned they might miss there match because the other coach is not responding or been offline for days?

or just pick one of them at random and pester them?
