I'm assuming the yankees spring training game tonight was rained out because it says my pick is voided, but shouldn't i get to pick another game now?  I'm not too far behind and can't afford to lose out on a game

yeayea,

It's the same rules for everyone and it's a free contest.  The rules were stated well before the race started.

grow up.

consider that you are the liaison for a free contest on a free site where about nine-thousand players are yammering because for some reason or another they all have their ideas about how the rules ought to be. and rather than reading first, and flaming later, or better yet avoiding the invectives altogether, a site-user blasts language consistently or exceptionally abusive not only to the owners of the site, but to the other participants who are unexpectedly and unwillingly subjected to something analogous to an episode of 'the real housewives of new jersey.'  it might be counter to the interests of the site to allow such activity to proliferate. 

so perhaps it might be in the purview of the moderator to actually moderate such abuses.  i've also noticed, surprisingly enough, that more mature approaches to situations generally minimize self-absorbed perspectives.  so it might be reasonable to expect that certain phrases such as, say for instance, 'grow up,' might find their way into conversations involving this issue.

knowing the weather is part of handicapping. If it is raining in fla there are Arizona games you could have picked. Don't blame covers b/c you weren't paying attention.

do you two idiots above me not realize that the only reason i was confused was because i didn't know a rainout meant voided pick, i assumed it just gave you a replacement pick for postponed or canceled games.  if i would've even considered either meant void then of course i wouldn't have picked a game with rainy forecast
