Two points of Clarification for the Forum:
1) The maximum payout for any posted play is +400. BUT you are not limited to picking only +400 or less.
If you would like to pick ORION in Costa Rica to win on Monday at +856, you are free to do so, but you can only win +400 for the Contest purposes.
2) As the Commissioner of this particular "for fun" Contest, I have stated in the past that I make my decisions on a case by case basis.
I have decided to allow mikeyfitz to continue with the Contest, even though he missed Week 15 pick, bringing him under running total of picks required to finish with at least 20 by the end of June. He notified me as soon as he discovered his pick had not posted, and even went as far as suggesting a make up pick (Arsenal ML over Wigan) as a substitute.
Because I did not make a timely decision this week as to his status, I left him in limbo with regards to making a pick this week or not.
I have not decided the terms of his reinstatement yet, as I have not had my mind on soccer as much as i should have this week.
My plans to reinstate him will go forth unless the Forum can bring up a strong argument against this. Please note, that saying that i have to enforce the rules to the letter of the law across the board will not be the strongest defense, as i have in the recent past allowed several plays to stand based on the Spirit of the Law affecting the partcular player. (ex: MEX_ROOKIE posting a play a minute or two after the match has begun)
I have taken into account mikeyfitz's committment over the past two months to be a consistent poster with his plays, as well as his timely notification that he missed a pick in Week 15.
