someone has to fix this. he had to picks graded already today and has 3 picks pending. im no snitch but if i cant have 5 picks neither can he lol. and how  is it decided which pick will be cancelled? if he loses 3 out of 5 or wins 1 out of 5 does he still get 1 win or does he get 4 losses on the day? should we keep an eye out for people with 5 picks or will it be taken care of? does he get to pick which games he wants credit for?

I think unless he needs to have 1 win subtracted from his record. Only fair way. Can't have 5 picks count and can't be aloud to make 5 picks and have the best 4 count.

he went 1-4 with his picks that day? how is it decided if he gets a win or not for that day? imo he should be 0-4 that day for trying to pull a fast one lol.

I say find him drag him through the streets and stone him. It doesn't matter. Even if he wins he would not be eligible because of that day, so it doesn't matter.

Its not so much that he got an extra pick because in the long run it prob wont matter, the point is will people be givent extra picks in the long run? if over the course of 200 someone sneaks in 8 extra picks and it goes unnoticed then that can affect all of us ya dig? if its a glitch then im sure covers/wagerline will fix it and make sure is doe'nt happen and the race is equal for all of us to play.

Hey Guys,

We were experiencing IT issues and thats why the error occured where some were able to make 5 picks. There were no other reasons for this other than an IT error. Hope to have an answer a to what happened to their records soon.

you should start over once the IT issue happened the contest became void.  They definitely cant get credit for any win on that day....they cheated, took advantage or whatever you want to call it

yes but how many people who had 5 picks only got 1 wrong  this contest takes 2 months and comes down to a pick so how can the contest be considered legit.  For all I know those that got extra picks are related to IT people or friends or family of IT.  This site allows play that most contest do not, so because someone intentionally fucked things up then the only fair thing is to restart, which I think sucks but its better than giving wins to those that shouldn't get them.  There is no telling how this will come into play later the contest just started.  A person not on the leaderboard could of gotten 5 right or even 4 and then later go on a run and win by a pick.

And how would that be fair to the people who have played within the rules and gotten off to an incredible start?

If anything was too happen either the 5th pick he made that day AND ANYONE ELSE'S 5th pick if thy got 5 should be voided. They are able to see down to the second when games were picked, so that wouldn't be tough. Other choice is anyone who took 5 picks is disqualified. We all know it's 4 picks per day.

whoever got 5 picks isnt there fault. if any of us got 5 picks wed play them too. so i agree that this race should be restarted. cuz i dont know about u guys, but im not gonna go through over 2000+ peoples picks. i dont think id have enough time,lol. if your not in the top 10, then really who cares,but the extra picks could get u there. i agree with u all. i think the only fair way is to start over, but whatever happens gl all...

I am sure once the race is finished they will look through everyone's records and make sure they're legit. Restarting makes no sense at all. They just all need to have 1 win subtracted from their records(unless they went 0-5).

subtracting 1 win at the end makes no sense. cuz that person would be at 199 and still couldve won. what if they were only 2 away, they only get 2 picks. then they go and do it when its done thats stupid. whoever has had 5 picks should be subtracted NOW, or restart it...cant fault or penalize someone that has no control, and if it goes all the way to the end, then dont bother taking anything from anyone cuz that means covers doesnt care or its fixed.
