Do you have to keep your picks in order of the draw?

I would think so. I mean, if someone wrote down his 64 first round picks in random order he would not get points for names that are out of place. The same rule should apply to all rounds.

In which case Frank Winkler will have NO finalists.

Frank Winkler picked four semifinalists and out of those four semifinalists he picked two finalists.

To me it would be silly and unsporting to not accept his finalist picks just because he reversed the order of the finalists' names. The reason for a rule requiring picks to be in order (if such a rule exists - I am checking with FITD board but I don't know of it) is surely for the convenience of the manager so that he or she doesn't have to go deciphering all these random draws. It's completely clear to me who Frank Winkler picked for the finals so unless the FITD board disagrees I'm accepting his picks.

You're no fun at all! Next time I'll post my picks in alphabetical order - or even reverse alphabetical order, if I'm feeling silly and unsporting.

I'm so anal retentive, if I see a name out of place on a list, I can't sleep.

I think the manager should decide to accept this kinds off draws or not, but that decision has to been taken before 2nd round (my opinion)

Federer is crap

If I hadn't accepted it I wouldn't be messing around tallying up his points.

I think today's results should propel me to the top

It's one of those times I'm actually happy my prediction was wrong.

Same here

It would be nice though if my 2nd finalist would make it into the final at least
