Leave the rule that players must send to the correct manager, so if they don't it's entirely AT THEIR OWN RISK. Then to allow flexibility, if the pick recipient is able and willing to forward the pick to the manager BEFORE THE DEADLINE he may do so, but the onus remains with the player to READ.
No obligation on the pick recipient, so hopefully no arguments, and certainly no more waiting for differences in case someone else has the missing picks. For slams which have joint managers, they could agree between themselves how to proceed.
I think exactly this. The responsability for send to correct manager, is of the player.
The managers have much work for to worry this in all tournaments.

It's something a manager shouldn't have to worry about (picks floating around in space).
AdeyC also makes a good point. What if a person who is not a manager wants to help out and post the OOP in a dire situation. He should then not be receiving picks.
LL is the principal problem for manager post the diffs in correct hour. When are more of 1 manager, is more difficult! If a player send to wrong manager, it is for the manager accept or not.
