I noticed I my record last night was 67-39 before last nights game. I believe I picked New Orleans and got credited with a loss. I’m now 67-40.

Both the Sun night and Mon night games were processed this morning (I forgot to do the Sun night one yesterday morning), and it looks like you had San Francisco, so maybe that’s the discrepancy…?

EDIT: And yes, you did have New Orleans, which was calculated into that:

I don't have to scroll down to see my standing.

This may be one of the greater achievements of my life to date. Stay tuned.

there should be a penalty for people who don't pick every game...

Don't be a dunce. Ranking is based on wins not %. Even if you assign all misses to losses, the wins stay the same. Stop whining.

Actually, I was wrong. There is a penalty for those who miss games. If you are tied with someone for wins, then the individual with more losses (and therefore more picks) is ranked higher. Abdul, for example, who has missed a few games is ranked lower than others who have 75 wins.

They are all tied, otherwise they would be at a lower spot.

Thanks, but this is Ian's site and he can run the game how he wants. The forum doesn't center around you and the posts you make.

It doesn't appear that way. Those who miss games are assessed a lower spot in the standings. If at the end of the season, two are tied for the most number wins, the tiebreaker would go to the person having fewer missed games. For example, you are tied for 10th but are the lowest of those tied for 10th based on your missed games.

Yea, it's called sorting.

Why are you bringing up posts that I made in another thread, in which the context is completely different?
Because it was a b!tch azz post and I just used it against you to show you how ludicrous it reads.

Let me try to explain this to you slowly. Missing games is a penalty in itself since you're missing a potential Win.

In my case, I usually wait until the final inactive list comes out before making my picks. I missed the three 4 pm picks because of this. I would've had 2 of the 3 as wins so it cost me dearly. I now make all my picks right away and will adjust them based on injuries before the game if need be. That way I won't miss out on wins.

Again, a missed pick is basically a loss. So no, in the case of a tie based on # of wins, there shouldn't be an exception for misses since missed picks are basically losses. Ian has chosen to keep track of them separately for whatever reason.
