Rules can't change until next season.


And unless stated prior they (rules) can't be added either. Not that it matters much now....Then explain why this was allowed.


"There was a tie for the Bonus Point. The actual point total tonight was 43. RWB had 44 and Abe had 42. So I'm giving both of them 1 point."

As much as I appreciate the gesture, the rule was ....while not going over. Last I checked 44 is over 43.


Here's the rule:

4. The person who gets closest to the MNF "total points" that week receives 1 bonus point.


Never was the point awarded to someone who went over the total unless everyone was over it. then the closet still wins.

Hmm...
I think I will just take my ball home, as I don't like the rules.   

It's a damn good thing we are not playing for money. Grin Grin Grin Grin



Pick them before Thursday first game and hold them.  You are not going to make everyone happy Jas. 





Fortunately for Johnny B, you don't make the rules. According to YOU, Johnny B should not have been allowed to play this by your perception of the rules since he missed all the Thursday games.

BALLS! I forgot




Here is your reply to him when he did.

You were told!.

I wasn't on


I didn't hear you saying no changes after Thursday back then. Cheesy  No one complained about Jasmine's handling it. I argued my point and she gave her decision. I made mine as well.

I didn't ask for a rule change. The rule was never stated until this week and I stand by what I said earlier...

Abe wrote on Dec 4th, 2017 at 4:40pm:
While I appreciate the politeness of your response...the change was made yesterday. It takes on more urgency tonight since 4 people can win over a game not played yet.



I suspect that part of the was due to the fact that you figured out just what I was thinking because it's a fair way to win. It is a game and if I can or you can still win fairly, I don't see the big deal. Friendly game or not, we all play to win. If it's friendly and somewhat informal who gets hurt?

Enjoy the rest of the season. I'm taking a knee in protest for the rest of the season. Undecided See you on the Politics Boards.

Good luck to all.



Now maybe I will play.

No, it's always been this way. We've had similar ties in the past. It doesn't matter if you go over or not. It's always been whoever comes closest.

Once again I defer to you. Wink  Since everyone took what I said in stride without being snide or hostile, I'm more offended by walks unnecessary comment and his selective application of what he perceives to be his own rules. There was no need for it. No one else objected to what I said and BOTH Jas and RWB understood what I was trying to say. Jas was very understanding and diplomatic about it too.  Wink

I respected Jas's authority here once she ruled. The comment was a cheap shot and he just ruined it for 2 of 3 who won't make the playoffs.

My apologies to those that will be bumped from playing. I planned on letting this go and leaving this where it was left it with no hard feelings.


Jasmine wrote on Dec 4th, 2017 at 11:11pm:
Abe is definitely invited to keep playing, if he decides to change his mind about sitting out the rest of the season.

If he does sit out, however, that means that Admin, Bert and myself can still battle for that sixth and final playoff spot.



To the two that gets bumped, blame walks. I tried to bow out gracefully since the regular season was all but over. I don't appreciate cheap hits after a player is down. Especially when I'm that "player" (so to speak Wink) Cheesy

Don’t worry about it. No one will get “bumped.” Actually, with your departure a playoff spot will open up for one of the three bottom-feeders: Bert, Admin or moi. I understand your reasons for no longer wanting to participate, so no hard feelings.

Thanks to walks comment... 2 out of 3 will now not get the opportunity. I was going to bow out gracefully but since he equates that to taking the ball and going home, I'll stay.


I'm not departing.

I should have said the two out of three that now might not get to play. Don't blame me. I was all but gone.
