    payneNglory1 also overcame a similar deficit to beat chesty in the Saucer, while p4pnumber_1 held Mannpagejackson out for the Teaspoon win.

    Wow I didn't realise I'm only 20 points behind in the cup I thought I was miles behind, with me having a trump left to play then it's not over yet! Thanks for the update Ging.

    Nice 1 Gin

    Disappointed with some of my picks for this rd so far,chose to many with my heart and not my head.
    Well it looks like I now need a really strong 2nd half to this rd, if I'm going to beat Chesty in the saucer or challenge Superman for 1st place in the league

    Well done Sheldan. I'm the twice beaten finalist now but I had to pick which I was willing to lose with you and Payne closing in on both league and cup. What else was I meant to do going into the last round of picks?

    And the free prize can be kept I wasn't holding out for a new t shirt. I do have my own.

    sorry for my daft drunken rant Super,I feel a right twat,I was being stupid and I was completely out of order mate.

    You had nothing to do with my bad mood yesterday,I drank to much while pissed off,the topic of you copying predictions came up,and in my daft state,I just focused on that and ran with it and took it way to far.

    I don't agree with playing it that way,but you did nothing wrong and I really do appoligize for acting like such a prick.

    I reckon next league we introduce a time limit when to make picks, im not a big fan of very late picks very close to when prelims start anyway. Most cards are very late on saturdays so 6/7 pm deadline uk time would work.


    And ur crazy for not picking Ellenberger!!!! Razz I was practially begging u to pick him last night lol.

    I know you where mate,but I don't think you should be able to change your picks during an event,once that event has started.

    I think you should have to make your picks before the event and stick with those choices,once the event starts.

    what does everyone else think?

    also are there any changes people want to suggest for next season in the way this is run,that you think would make an improvement.

    also since I had a little rant on the subject,if you don't want anyone knowing your predictions before hand,you can always PM me them if you want.

    Bring back the belts!

    As an admin can you lock a topic at all? Once the event has started you could lock the topic so nobody can edit. Actually scrap that I think everyone should PM their predictions, then like meanie said, put a deadline in of around 6/7/8 on a Saturday, then once that time has come, create a new topic listing everyone's picks so that there is no controversy over picks and any debate as to whether they picked or not. That's just my idea anyway.

    If everyone PM's their picks,it'll cause problems when,like most cards,changes happen or people want to change there picks for an event that follows in the same rd.

    I don't fancy having to edit everyone's picks for them each time that comes up.

    I think there definitely should be no changes made to that event once an event starts.
    I'd just like it if players,just trusted their own picks and went with them,so this problem wouldn't come up.

    lets here the opinions of other players about,copying peoples picks to maintain a lead,before we start making big changes.
    is it wrong,or is it just part of the game?

    If nobody has a problem with it,then fair enough,don't worry about it and continue as normal,or do what you have to do to avoid it,game play yourselves by posting false picks and then editing them at the last moment or any other way you want to do it,or just PM your choices to me or Gin.

    Sheldan,i know Gin tried the belt thing,and then scrapped it,but if you want to try and resurrect it,go for it.

    It's a shame signatures don't work on here,otherwise you could use them for that,have a belt picture or something to show who's the current champ,then you take that pic when you beat them.

    I don't think you should play tactically by copying peoples picks, you should pick what you think, regardless of what other people have picked. I don't see how we could make it a rule though, how would there be any way to properly prove that somebody has copied someone's picks.

    you can't stop it,without making big changes to how we play the game and post our predictions.
    I personally enjoy playing the game just the way Gin has set it up and wouldn't really want anything to change.

    Hopefully it doesn't happen anymore and it's all forgotten about,but if you think someone is doing it to you,then like I say,edit your picks at the last moment or just PM me your final picks.

    Cheers pal. Congrats to you too. I lost my first 2rounds and dropped straight into teaspoon. So to make final with 3 straight wins was good. Wud of been nice to win. But worthy and deserving oponent.

    Ps, superman punch was a shadow of himself today at work, crying, very quiet, smelt quite femanin and was wearing ladies pants, i presumed he had been the victim of a beatdown by his mrs, again. But it turns out he suffered an armbar sized mauling last night. I think he may never recover.

    This only can happen though in a final round like this now, nobody is going to copy others picks for a whole league. So maybe in a final round like this everyone just PM's their final picks.

    You could bring in a rule that means you have to make all your picks during a round at once. E.g if there's fights a week between, and someone has a lead in the first week they can just copy their opponent's picks to keep their lead. Picking all the fights at once could put a stop to that.

    I don't really care about the cup. I will always make predictions with the aim of accruing league points. If those predictions happen to be after and very similar to my opponents this is purely coincidental.
    If I think I can do better than my opponent, I will post what I believe to be the best set of predictions, even if it forgoes a certain chance of cup progression. Because it's the league I play for.

    I don't think this is as big of an issue in the league as usually there are a few in the chasing pack, and you cannot copy them all.

    Just setting out my stall.

    I dont think anybody on here would genuunely try n cheat there fellow armbar officianado out of a victory. I think its clear to see from some of my picks that i only got into mma about 18months ago. Only mainly watch ufc or uk based fights, so am not as knowledgable as some of the guys on here. However, even tho i have the most to gain, all i copy is the initial fixture list and all i ever edit is if a fighter changes. I have the most to gain from copying. However i do my own research on fighters to expand my knowledge on this sport which i love. And if i dont cheat (tho sometimes i wish i had.) i dont believe anyone on here wud.

    Exept 2brutal - dont trust that guy anybody.
