Ace, I finished 5th at the AO and my boy lost early...otherwise that blip prevented my greatness from shining fully in 2017

once I win the FO, I will be the clear leader going into WIMB, where I will shock the world with my new grass strategy and have the year end race all but secured by the time the silly USO rolls around

I am down to three members...

Pavs somehow screwed up...

My scouting in the clay season was not too bad: a lot of the players are still in... unfortulately not the ones that made the final cut &#128514;&#128514;

JazzNU's Wildcats snags the yellow jersey after Round 2 ... especially impressive having already lost a player. The leading team comprises

1. Nadal
2. Cilic
3. Thiem
4. Halep
5. Venus
6. Cibulkova

Meanwhile, the number of intact teams has dwindled to the following 8 contestants:

LaughingCavalier
Pingpong0_
Zvezda_red
Brens
TERRASTAR18
Pandacris
Pazo77
Charlie02123

Allez tous!
go firmly to the window
and listen with deep emotion,
but not with the whining, the pleas of the coward;
listen-your final pleasure-to the voices,
to the exquisite music of that strange procession

note to admins ... please don't post Round 4 scores until all Round 3's are done and I have a chance to download the data. Thanks

#ed_op#i#ed_cl#Ace,#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Peter asked that we do not input scores for the 4th rd 'til he has a chance to download the data. Thus, I went in and deleted the scores for the 4th that you inputted. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#I assume he'll notify this thread when he has completed the download. #ed_op#/i#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#

#ed_op#font color="brown"#ed_cl#@ #ed_op#b#ed_cl#rex#ed_op#/b#ed_cl#:#ed_op#/font#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#&nbsp;oh come on.. I was not reading this and wondered why the scored were not there. I thought something was wrong.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#Peter knows we can't do that. We talked about this before.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#When matches are over, people want to see the ranking. We can't wait 5 hours before entering the scores.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#There are links for individual Round Rankings at the bottom of the Ranking Page... We added that as a compromise after we had this discussion.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#So we can't go back on that compromise and hold the ranking hostage.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#

#ed_op#font color="brown"#ed_cl#@ #ed_op#b#ed_cl#rex#ed_op#/b#ed_cl#:#ed_op#/font#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#&nbsp;Sorry you didn't know.. But it's not 'my game and my decision'. This is something we've already openly discussed here and we found a compromise. It's not some dictatorship. I coded the individual ranking as a compromise. When Peter needed more data and is ready for his stats, he takes out the last scores he doesn't want, gets the data he wants and puts the scores right back. But we don't wait. The scores has to keep flowing in if a Commish is available to enter them.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#I thought that was a closed debate.... long ago.#ed_op#br#ed_cl#
