That's what I think, but you are the experts here. Sorry for my mistake.
We have no expertize on this matter, since a problem like this never occured (or at least I don't know of it). There were occasions that scores for one or few matches were wrong, and most of the mistakes were found and corrected before the matches took place. I don't think there was ever a case that the scores of the whole first round were mistaken.
Now I see there is yet another suggestion... to cancel all the matches on day 1... according to my calculation there were 8 matches played on Monday, and if there were players who picked most of them they could be in trouble if they won't realize in time that those matches were cancelled. If someone won't have any valid picks in the 1st round, he would have 15 marches left to choose 13 picks from. So he might be at a significant disadvantage in this tournament.
My position is that since the whole 1st round was mis-calculated, any decision should be applied to the whole 1st round, and not make a distinction between matches played and not played.
So there are 3 options:
1. Leave the scores as they were.
2. Correct all the scores.
3. Cancel all the picks.
I am still in favour of the 1st option, since the players who posted picks did that on the basis of those scores, and no one seems to have noticed that there is something wrong until most of the matches on day 1 have allready started.
As to the future... I suggest that a senior manager will be designated to look after rookie managers in their first tournament, and in particular re-check the scoring points.
I guess that if I took a glance at the scores I would be suspicious immediately that there's a mistake there...
