    believe it or not….the first time it happened….before there was a precedent….i was the main person petitioning to let the persons lineup count because I dont want anyone to have excuses if they lose.

    Now I’m a non gentleman cause I disagree with u and one guy has to swallow a 0 because he doesn’t follow rotogrindrers or Twitter while another doesn’t have to. You do realize I’m not the one who took the 0.

    mphst……if he doesnt have rotogrinders or twitter….he wouldnt know there was a tournament lol

    just sayin….

    he has to have one or the other

  • Mphst18

    Never claimed you tried to game the system just stated it could be done. I also am not the guy who took the 0 but while we live in a technology driven world if the guy doesn’t have fcks contact info and if he doesn’t follow Twitter or Rotogrinders religiousally should he be punished for that while someone else can make alternate arrangements?

  • Mphst18

    He may not be on either of them non stop and technically once he agreed to the email from dk he was in the tournament regardless of if he posts on Rotogrinders or knows how to dm on rg

    if u realize u dont have a lineup in u dont have to “follow rotogrinders religiously” you just have to:

    1) go to RG
    2) write a PM to michael with a screenshot
    3) make sure the time of the message was before tip

    its really that simple. you dont have to follow anything religiously. you make the effort like i did to get ur lineup in before lock. due to this being a late swap site there isnt any gaming that can take place…

    now on fanduel that would be a different story…..and even in the crossover challenge (which is like this) on fanduel, when ppl forgot, we still allowed it….and there it totally shouldnt be allowed, but we still did.

    its not saying u arent a gentleman…..its just that this is abut more than $….so we want to make sure mistakes dont skew the results. so no one complains that they lost because of a mistake….we want ppl to lose because they were less skillfull or had a bad run, not cause they didnt enter by accident.

    i could have just posted a link to my team in the ALL STAR (my only team) but decided it was only fair to expose my whole lineup on twitter, and actually all the guys i started were higher owned in FCK than in other tournies….which leads e to believe ppl pivoted, therefore hurting me even more

    Your so funny to run on Twitter and make comments with your uneducated self. Sore loser I’m in third place and it isn’t about the possibility of exploiting an advantage its that you give one guy a 0 who doesn’t have an online relationship with you for not submitting his lineup on time but then give a different guy a score for doing the same thing but you do have an online relationship with him.

    So you are in 3rd place and are trying to argue for one of the two players ahead of you to get a zero, yep no bias there.

    Clearly there was absolutely no edge gained by Tommy in this situation, you are just trying to manipulate this mistake to your advantage. Its obvious to everyone reading this.

  • Mphst18

    Bowers Now u r starting to sound intelligent. Yet you have to answer what happens on dk when you fail to enter a lineup before the first game starts. What score do you get?

    No, it isn’t….. You have to remember its the first time playing for many of these guys. I don’t think anyone really thinks Tommy was trying to gain any type of advantage, its absurd to think that, but it is understandable that some of the new players are unaware of this unwritten rule.

    You misread my post, its obvious the only reason he is complaining is to benefit himself, not because Tommy gained some unfair edge.

    this is true…..and thats why we are expressing that it is a precedent that has been set for years….but i understand MSPHT not knowing it…..i do feel it is to gain a personal edge…..but ill give him the benefit of the doubt.

    His score was only counted in the standings of the challenge, as already posted on here if he had won last night Tommy would not have been paid the money for that individual contest.

    So your argument yet again doesnt make sense but I get it, you know you cant win without Tommy taking the zero.

  • tvsfrink

    Why wouldn’t you just play by the site rules, no exceptions?

    Exceptions just lead to complaints.

  • mjchan89

    why can’t we just bring in a 3rd party to decide? like someone from last year’s fck that isn’t in it this year.. this will remove any bias.

  • Mphst18

    I’m sorry bowers I couldn’t read through your verbal poop what score do you get on dk when u fail to enter a lineup before the first game starts. No need for words a number will suffice and heres a hint it has a single digit and when multiplied by any other number gets you the same value.

    I just want an asterisk next to Tommys name and we all agree to never vote him into the HOF.

    because this was the rule last year that we all decided on….thats why no one complained when it happened.

    there are already 3 huge disadvantages that took place….1) cant late swap 2) people chasing u cant see ur lineups 3) cant win any money that night all because of a mistake…..that is the punishment that we decided on for years……

    anything beyond that if the player reaches out IMMEDIATELY to screenshot their lineup is excessive and actually leads to excuses no true champion….which is what the real goal is.

    lol, oh stop it. We are only 20% through the contest and the 0 would be dropped anyways. Why are you arguing so much when you aren’t even in the contest?

    I am fine with Tommy’s score counting fwiw.

    Thats why I commented in the first place, not in the contest and have no bias, the simple fact is that the line up was posted before the game tipped and absolutely no edge was gained, the only reason to argue for a zero is if you are in the contest and it gives you a better chance to win.

    There is a precedence here which is important. I feel a lot better knowing the FCK tried to reach out to the guy who got a zero so that he wouldn’t.

    Mphst18 – at this point you either formally object as he said or we move on.

    This back and forth really means squat in the end.

    I am arguing because I think its pathetic that someone would want this counted as a zero when no edge was gained and it was a simple mistake. The line up was posted minutes after lock as it was entered into other contests but this contest got missed, there was no edge gained here its just someone trying to manipulate things into their own favor.
