Why would they void a valid game?  There were no injuries or anything. I smell something fishy.

they voided the game because the tip off time was posted incorrectly. tip was at 1:00 and they posted 3:30.

what is even worse is that we lose that pick for today. the lesson learned is that we will have to double check the start time, the spread, and all other details surrounding our prospective picks to make sure that they are the same as in the real world. this is the second that time i have been screwed in this contest because their posters clearly do not pay attention to what the hell they are doing. it sucks, too, because the challenge is great enough as it is.          +

I won't care unless its the difference between winning and losing. Its bullshit. My pick was in before the start of the game and why should I be penalized for their screw up.

I am 14 games back now, so it's not a big deal, but if I place just outside the top 10 I will girl about it.

Exactly if any of us were to miss out of the top 25 by 1 game, this will haunt us.

I don't know why they don't treat it like a baseball or hockey game that getting closer to the start of the game drops below the -150 spot. If that happen then they just take and pull the game from the list of possible games that can be selected from. This way it would remain fair for the ones that made the pick before the start of the game. Didn't they sat that the game started sooner then the real start time anyway?

I once lost a pick from a prior Ultimate Race contest, when a college basketball game was canceled because the roof of the building caved in due to a snow storm !

once the game is posted it should stick.if the line is wrong that could change things.the time of the game should not matter.we won and it should be credited to our account.the bad thing is they would not let us make another pick.i tried.they need to get it right.

Yeah, it was corrected for me too, but tonight I gained another game on the leader and it didn't register.

  you get credit and i get this
We have experienced an error with some of the NCAAB neutral site games that were available for selection in the Ultimate Race Contest this morning.
 
Some of the rotation numbers, home/away listings and lines were mixed up.  Once these were re-entered properly it left your account with an error status on a pick you had entered.
 
This would have left your account with a loss for today, and to correct this problem we were forced to delete the play.
 
Unfortunately this was our only option for fixing the problem.
 
You now have the oppurtunity to enter a new play today for Ultimate Race 6.
 
We apologize for error, such occurences are rare and we will do our best to ensure it does not happen again.
 
Thanks,  Then I  makeanother pick and it gets deleted something not right ?
