    Absolutely bret3518. It will make their job much easier. And nobody can complain. Any editing or corrections WILL result in 0-5. Changing one word eliminates any confusion.

    I think what we've done in the past is that if you make an error in a post, like using the same team twice, etc, you simply make an additional post correcting it, right afterwards, instead of editing the original. That works.

    Which according to rule #4 shouldn't be allowed.

    That's why it's good to have this discussion before the season, to hash it out.

    No editing. No late picks.
    Any problems logging in, there is an email to send pick too.

    Automatic 0-5 for both.

    Why is this a lengthy discussion?

    The Super Contest DOES have that 2 entry rule. However, there is nothing preventing some "syndicate" or group from having as many entries as they feel worthwhile. They can use proxies, different names, etc.etc.

    I think if the westgate/hilton had a posting forum, and allowed it's contestants and potential contestants to comment and make suggestions on the rules, they would have the same conflicting opinions we have here.

    Bottom line, you can never make everyone happy. There will always be disagreements as to what the rules SHOULD be.

    That being said, I agree that allowing to pick the Thurs game and then coming back in later to post the rest just isn't a good idea. It would be a mess for the scorekeeper. A nightmare.

    The other conflict seems to be about the use of the word COULD or WILL in rule #5. I have to agree with the WILL crowd. It either IS allowed or it ISN'T. Has to be black and white.

    No editing of picks allowed after posted. PERIOD. If you post the same team twice, one of those will be a loss. Just be sure to take the time to make sure your picks are correct before posting.

    Anything else?

    Absolutely agree 100%. No editing of picks allowed once you have posted. Same team twice one is a LOSS period. And WILL instead of Could.

    Anything else ..Yes. Great minds can agree!! Let the games begin!!!!

    I did 3 years ago.

    So, just to be clear, on this opening weekend, the deadline to sign up is Sunday at 1 PM. Does that mean that EVERYONE has until 1 PM Sunday to get their picks in? Or just newbies and veterans late to renew?

    Now that I'm actually set up on this site.....

    I am interested in this contest... how many are signed up? So deadline will be SUNDAY at 12:00 AM (or Sat 1 min past 11:59P), right?
    I wanted to see the standings of last year's contest but could only find up to week 16. How many played last year and how much was the 1st place pot?

    The site only allows editing for 60 seconds anyway and then the edit button goes away. Not sure that's even an issue.
