Can't see why this subject seems to be such a big major issue - Sunday

A lot of people have complained about the Sunday start in the last couple of years as there have been a number of people who have been caught out and not sent picks in time. I think it's necessary with a Saturday final and a 64-draw in TT otherwise there will not be many matches for some of the rounds.

I don't think there's something to complain about when people don't read schedule or at least check the thread. Sunday should stay.

If people are too lazy to check to see when a tournament starts it's their own fault. RG starts Sunday and nobody complains. Keep it like it is, the schedule would be too crammed to start Monday considering it ends Saturday
