As most of you know, football picks default to favorites if you do not make selections before the first game on Sunday. In the past, several of the participants in the football contest were unable to enter picks by the deadline because of personal circumstances, work/travel schedules, extraordinary events, etc. I thought it best to just default the picks to favorites for missing picks because if a participant loses a whole week's worth of picks, it is almost impossible to make up. And in fact, many would have quit the contest altogether. So in the spirit of fun and keeping the group together, missed weeks were defaulted to favorites.
So the question came up over the weekend if this rule should be applied retroactively. There were a few people who joined the contest late and therefore missed the first or second week of football picks.
In the first (and maybe second) year of this football contest, the lowest scoring week for each participant was thrown out. Since Alan automated the contest with this great user interface, it is difficult to do this. It would have been a good way to compensate for late joiners.
So I would like your opinion on whether the rule of defaulting to favorites should be applied retroactively to the late joiners in the pool.
PS I don't know how to make a poll but chime in with your opinions until I figure it out. Haha!
