    12-1. Missed picking a finish for the Corassani / Peralta fight though.

    A.) The thread's been up for 2 weeks.

    B.) What am I supposed to do for the guys who make late picks but omit the fights that have already been decided?

    C.) Where would we draw the line on bending the rules?

    D.) It was already decided, to implement a 'missed pick forgiveness system' (for lack of a better term), so that missing picks wouldn't be a disincentive to participation. Since you already missed 2 events for which you will be compensated, to what end should 'you' be accommodated?

    E.) If it's just for fun, why are you so bent out of shape about it?

    Frankly, and I think everyone would agree(aside from perhaps you), that just because I score this, doesn't mean I get to change rules, make exceptions or judgment calls; anymore than C--S gets to, because he posts the threads.

    Personally, I don't care about the points. But I don't want to deal with player resentment if/when I find myself in subjective rule bending situations because of a precedent that was set for you.

    You may now apologize for putting me in this position.

    I still like you.

    What if I gave you your 7 points, and then gave everyone else 7 points too?

    Would that work for you?

    Tor Troeng vs. Adam Cella - Cella UD

    KOTN - Mitrione
    SOTN - Mousasi
    FOTN - Johnson vs Madadi

    Just woke up, not sure if this thing started yet. Start time threw me off.
    The following bouts had already been decided before you submitted your picks:

    Abedi / Yousef
    Lawlor / Kuiper
    LaFlare / Alloway
    McGregor / Brimage

    The rest of your picks are in on time.

    Those fights would have been worth 7 points.
