    all the advantage players waiting till the last minute, will unload on the Chiefs -7. I agree it's not fair, I would vote on giving the game the axe at this point the more I think about it.

    I don't see anything in the rules to answer our questons here. Seems it is a very unstable situation, so mabe we can substitute another pick ... seems unfair to just lose a pick if they cancel the game. In that case, do we get a half point for a push? It's the same as a push. LOLOLOL ... sorry for all the questions ... and I am sorry if I missed something in the rules too.

    could be high odds of cancellation. I think in a covid world, we need a flexible approach, but I will go along with whatever the site owners decide ... just think it is too unstable and unfair for a contest.

    they say they will play Mon or Tuesday, I don't see it happening as those negatives could turn positive within the next few days. Why would KC risk playing a team that may be infected, it may look like a easy Win on paper but I don't see them giving a shit about a cupcake game IMO.

    we need to figure something out, I don't think it's fair if we allow guys to make a replacement pick for the Pats/Chiefs to do it after the Picks have came out. they can see who certain people have picked.

    Agree hotshot. We have about 3 hours before picks officially close, so hopefully we'll be able to substitute that pick soon. My suggestion would be to just take the patriots/chiefs game off the card, and allow anyone who picked that game the ability to substitute it before picks are all posted. In my humble view, that is by far the most equitable solution to this.

    5. Please note all Contest Lines listed in the drop-down menu are playable, even if the game goes OTB (Off the Board) at a later date unless the game was canceled.

    So, unless canceled game is on. Tough luck otherwise.

    I'm being lenient this year as I have been in the college game. I know the Vegas rules say game must be played by Tuesday of the following week to be applied toward contest standings or contestant will receive 0 points for that game, however, I am awarding a replacement pick if there is still time in the current week or a replacement pick the following week. I feel that's fair considering the unstable situation that exists this year.

    [/QUOTE]

    JOH, does your comment above mean that since there is "still time in the current week" as we can still pick until 4PM EST, am I permitted to NOW replace that patriots pick if I want? How do I do that?

    I can't grant a replacement unless the game is officially moved to another week past Tuesday. Must know that before 4pm to make that happen.

    If the game doesn't play on or before Tuesday it should be graded as 0 points.

    You saw my decision. Why can't you accept it and move on?

    Thanks for everything JOH, especially keeping things afloat this year

    You do a great job with contests, but why are you always so defensive when somebody has an opinion here?

    Why are we discussing something that has already been decided?

    Well enough Faygo. I'll go to my corner and enter my picks without future commentary or have anything to say about how things are ruled here.

    FYI I'm also the poster who informed JOH that the codes had been compromised.
