I don't think you should have given in. You have set a precedent.

Besides, anyone who plays the game for the FIRST time and does not even read the rules before playing has no claim that he was treated unfairly.

Nobody wants to take responsibility for their own screw ups these days. It is always somebody else who should go out of their way to accomodate them, is how they approach life.

I don't have a problem with allowing someone to play if the manager doesn't mind fixing the spaces in their draw. If they want to take that time then it should be fine.

But the manager does have the right to not do it, it's not their job to fix mistakes. But if they do fix it then they should fix it for everyone who made that mistake

I think that is more like 156mphserve said, it's a decision of every manager I think that all made mistakes and is the first time that they played this game, by the way a lot of users made mistakes in his draws and I fixed all the draws and by that some results change if I can fix a draw or something I will do it

And I think that this is the principal point it will be unfair if I only correct the mistakes of some players

Here are the stats, there are some mistakes in the draws of The Rocket, Spain07, Mike Westen and Nix da. They made some little mistake in some part of their draws.

I'm surprised to be 6th. Hope I can keep up. I really need a Nadal vs Federer final for that.

Re: Fill-In-The-Draw (FITD) Roland Garros| No more picks!

I made big mistake in draw which is going to cost me 1st place i think I picked Gulbis and Almagro in R3, and picked Gulbis to win against Almagro in R4 but after that i put Almagro instead of Ferrer
