Anyway, these are my 2 cents, the decision of course is up to you and the others.

Conditonal picks aren't allowed.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

IMO if both players have nothing against, why not?
e.g. look at this situation: PAW (PICK-A-WINNER) # 39 - Bastad 2006
everything was clear.

I wouldn't know about that, I am not going do it, cause it's just cheap. I agree with shotgun on this. Someone has to make a move eventually.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Supplement to The Official PAW Rules

As there are many cases of players asking for a wild card and then (for many reasons) not joining the game and at the same time wasting a WC, a new point 17.5 is being added to the Supplement of The Official PAW Rules:

Quote:
17.5 Obligation of the WC player's.

A player who asks for a WC and receives it, is obliged to post his/her pick within 12 hours from the moment of posting the request for a WC. Otherwise the WC will be taken away.

Re: Supplement to The Official PAW Rules

I propose an additional point to the rules:
i.e. 18.1 "if some qualified player(s) doesn't pick 7 games during whole TMC, alternate player(s) with 7 picks has priority to be counted"
I know it could be good for me in this year situation, but in my opinion less than 7 picks means something similar to injury during real tournament

What do you think?

Re: Supplement to The Official PAW Rules

I don't know
what about "Tie break rules" and rule:
"No pick will be considered better than 0 pts." ?

hmmm, doubt it's possible

what if I have 6 picks and the final doesnt take place because of a withdrawal from an injury in training?

"doesn't pick 7 games" is not the same as "doesn't have 7 valid picks"

but the rule is different, if 2 players are tied, this one with less picks is better only when they both have same consecutive best picks over 0 pts
and this is specific situation, just 7 picks, just 16 players and much higher stake - it's no sense to resign during tournament, even before the final you can reach few places, I understand that, but if someone did, why wouldn't we give a chance to another?
of course not for everyone, but i.e. max 3-4 alternates

Re: Supplement to The Official PAW Rules

I think alternates should be counted in case of a no-show, as in one of the qualifiers makes no picks.

But to be honest, Id rather have someone like hallso in who will make all 7 picks rather than someone who couldnt even be arsed to make 7 picks. If they dont even want to make 7 picks at the YEC, they cant really be that bothered by the game.

At the same time, the qualifiers have earned their place and its a bit unfair if someone who actually qualified for the YEC doesnt get their ranking points for it (at least 110 i think which is quite a lot). PAW players need an off season too

Re: Supplement to The Official PAW Rules

I think players should only be replaced if they don't send any picks
