Thanks Braden.

Nice season stone! Came down to the wire. Almost forgot my pickes again and left Smith out. I thought I was in trouble.

Ugh, what a terrible last event imo. Benavidez got screwed on that decision and cost me the season. Then, the main event, should have clearly been a draw, maybe even a win for Yoel, and that would have kept me at the top.. Awful, awful judges. They need to fire everyone who is different so that we can have some kind of unity of what they are looking for event to event. Anyway, that topic is probably up for debate.

Congrats JLS, Everyone send some props his way.

Next season I am thinking that we should put a rule in so that you cannot post after the event has started. I dont know if I would need to put a *Closed* comment in or something. But, that could be do-able. I usually make the last picks anyway, as I squeeze them in 1 min before the event starts.
OR, should we keep it the same? Or for portions of the event? Like, if Early Prelims have started, you can only do Prelims and Main? Or if when this locks.. it locks games?

I just think it's more fair if everyone has to have them in before, and then there is less gray area for people making late picks. Also because in the past people have left it until 2 fights left, and chose all 4 fighters left. I am not sure what to think about that. Whatever choice we come up with, it will mirror in the 'of the night' game as well.

I dunno, it's just a thought.. Comments? Questions? Business as usual is fine too.

Nice job JLS!

Congrats JLS

I agree that once the event starts no one should be able to put in their picks. That being said I don't think you need to put a closed comment just put that disclaimer in the opening page of the thread and look at the posted time stamp. I don't think anyone is trying to cheat on a side game but it just keeps the game on a level playing field.

I would say maybe before the tv prelims and main card.

I mean 1 time could cost you a season if you didn't get your picks in by 6:30pm and you weren't even picking anyone until 8:30 pm for example.

Absolutely no editing your initial post after the event starts is a must.

Thoughts?
