    As another new guy that is in this contest for the first time, I believe I was the first one on Twitter to point this out because I was confused about what was being allowed. But in all honesty, once Tommy and Michael broke it down, it made complete sense. Yes, everyone has different reasons for being in this conference, but in the end, it is about bragging rights and about WHO IS THE BEST. Why are we going to penalize someone on a technicality, especially when they literally posted their lineup 2 minutes after lock? What conspiracy is there to believe here? I don’t want to win or even place this way and I would hope no one else would either.

    amen.

  • JasonZyman

    I already stated this on twitter but I think his entry should count. I’m a “nobody” trying to compete with the best. I don’t want to finish near the top and get discredited because of stuff like this. I do think that if a screenshot of the lineup before tip is allowed that it should be posted in the rules or something though.

  • motownmauler

    Sorry guys, I could care less, if Tommy had his lineup to Fck before first tip then he should get points for the night, shit happens, fck didnt take my switch of hawes to dieng for some reason I switched all my other main lineups (as u can see from all single entry results)but shit happens and he was penalized enough by not having the chance to cash

    Possible solution:

    On the outside chance that the one guy who is complaining loses final standings money because you (TommyG) displace him, why don’t you just agree that, under that scenario, you will pay off his lost money.

    Example: if the overall payouts were: 1st $10, 2nd $8, 3rd $5, 2nd $3, 5th $1

    You finish 2nd, he finishes 3rd, you pay him the $3 difference.
    You finish 1st, he finishes 6th, you pay him $1.
    Etc.

    Not necessarily fair to you, but quiets him down and lets the tourney continue on without controversy.

    Agree with everything. Appreciate the awkward spot you’re in fck, but I’d rather everyone take a 0 one day and be on a level playing field now (I know, unrealistic) than play this way.

    The rule is simple, it must be uninamous. It is not. Was established in the first year. Tommy wasn’t part of it that year. No one has ever objected. Someone did. Respect your fellow players opinions please.

    Lol tommyg and bowens.
    Previous years precedent? No where in the rules on this thread or the previous thread does it say you can enter your lineup via RG or Twitter… And Tommy saying he had such a massive disadvantage not being able to late swap is such a bunch of BS it stinks from 1000000 miles away. He is just making any excuse and trying to get people to sympathize to be on his side. Take the zero like anyone else in a DK tournament has to do if they forget to enter…. Not to mention the fact that u never shut up about winning a couple times, seems weird that you would all of a sudden forget.
    “But export all didn’t work”… Well, it didn’t work for anyone else or you on previous nights, so why did you all of a sudden think it would now? And if it’s all about bragging rights, why is there $ to be won with the final standings? If the $ doesn’t matter to you, then keep track and let everyone know where you would have finished instead of trying to belittle someone because they haven’t played in years past. “The best players in the game” is hilarious too. Never seen a non-tout, tout so much about being the best.
    It should 1000000% be a 0 for all standings as the guy on day 3 got a zero. Maybe he didn’t have internet connection or was unable for one reason or another. Is he on here crying and throwing a fit like a teenage girl? No….

    In future years, may we all look fondly back at the great controversy known as #TommygGate.

    yeah then the rule was made OFFICIAL last year that if u miss u need to send a screenshot…..

    back when pete did it….it was a tournament of 11 pros…..i wasnt’ even playing nba back then…..there was no rule….u made a rule last year….

    now YOU MR HOFELD decided to devalue the tournament and allow anyone in…..and although some of these guys seem really cool and nice and i like them…….we TOLD U stuff like this was gunna happen.

    I have decided to remain in the tournament and play at a disadvantage…when I could have dropped Mic and walked, destroying the tournament and its PR (cause I am the PR)….and I would have walked as the current leader therefore discrediting any one else who wins……..BUT i decided not to for 2 reasons…….1) just becasue the commissioner was irresponsible enough to let in outsiders into our private tourney, and then faulty enough to not have specific rules posted on the thread (not my fault….urs) then break prior years rules to accomodate one of the ppl who should have never been in…….thats not enough for me to “take my ball and go home” like others would do….because I am a figure in the industry and dont wanna ruin the fun for everyone else. and 2) because the money is too easy playing against these guys every day.

    i have posted a state of the FCK union statement and pinned it to my twitter……@TommyG

  • dpadilla

    If there was already a rule or precedent in place from previous years, then that’s it. If someone doesn’t know it, and believes it’s unfair, let him get a refund and leave. There’s no reason to change the rules for one guy.

    You’re trying to change the rule to make it fit your circumstances. And I’m not a pro nor is Kaiser. This has never been a pros only event. I respect your disappointed, but the decision is based on being fair to everyone.

    I think it’s pretty easy to see both sides of this argument. I do find it pretty hilarious that Tommy missed the tweets at him to enter his lineup amongst his constant trolling. Hopefully this turn out to be a moot point considering the lowest score is dropped.

  • DCoop328

    Not in this tourney at all. But I don’t see any reason why Tommy’s Score shouldn’t be allowed. If he had a LU at 7:01 then it should count simple as that. No need to kill someones chances based on a technicality.

  • DCoop328

    Honestly any logical human being should be able to figure this one out but None of My Business

    Would really aggravate me to be in TommyG or FCK’s shoes.

  • Mphst18

    Maybe one day the post will write an article about a man forgetting to pull over his $90,000 car in jersey traffic to enter his lineup before a deadline.

    How do you brag about your ability to know and enter a contest before its start time to a paper to make yourself look important and then kick and scream like an FBOY when you don’t.

    Also please save your you wish the post wrote about you comeback you want to use, to predictable

    “And the Wolf never misses an opportunity — even when he’s stuck in Jersey traffic. A few months ago, realizing the clock was ticking with a few minutes left to enter a DFS contest, Gelati pulled his $90,000 Jaguar XFR over at a gas station on Route 17, where he made an eleventh-hour lineup just under the wire.

    He made $18,000 that day”

    see u at the RG party

    ill leave it there

  • Philly25

    You’re seriously a terrible person. It’s obvious you envy Tommy

  • stoptheinsanity

    LOL Dang. I think there is a valuable lesson to be learned here. If you have a small child that throws temper tantrums never ever give in to them. If you do, then when they become an adult they will continue that behavior.

    Also I think it was a terrible idea to let this guy get his way. Only sets precedent for him to whine and complain more in the future. Something tells me this won’t be the last time he tries to get something changed to give himself an advantage. Just my unbiased unsolicited opinion on a situation that has absolutely nothing to do with me.

    Just a follower enjoying following the tournament, but his score should clearly count. It seems all of the most respected DFS players agree. In the original “precedent,” it doesn’t seem like a unanimous decision was a condition of accepting the score, but a convenient coincidence. His lineup was submitted before lock. It makes sense that he wouldn’t be eligible for prize money, but it doesn’t make sense not to count the points to the overall standings. Requiring a “unanimous” decision is inherently unfair because it values the opinion of one player drastically more than the rest of the field-a field that seems to overwhelmingly agree that his score should count.

    The original precedent which can be found in an RG forum required all other players to agree to accept a non submitted lineup.
