    Not even joking: I had Rins in there, and then I thought it sounded too silly to suggest Suzuki winning. I deleted his name and put Lorenzo's. I would have looked like an effing genius if I had posted my original message (and if I had actually heeded my own advice).

    Wow, 2nd highest score of the weekend (tied)?? I'm honestly surprised considering how much I lost due to Marquez, Crutchlow, Vinales, and Lorenzo lol I'll take it!

    So if you don't put any picks in, you still get points, the same as what you got in the last round? That doesn't seem quite fair. What if you do really well in one round, then you might as well just stop playing because you're going to get the same each round? Pretty sure with the old official MotoGP league, you got nothing if you missed one...which is I never made it to the end, cuz I'd always forget a couple of rounds and then I'd give up lol

    Same picks, not same points.

    Doing my preliminary picks for the next race and I discovered ... last year Cal crashed *twice* in the Jerez race ...

    Will he be going for three this year? :p

    Well I'll be... That's surprising. Didn't think I'd do that well. Still a BIG climb to payday though.

    Too early to think about payday. Badmoon with badass picks in a very difficult race. Will audit tonight.

    it's the "forgot to pick insurance"

    not points guarantee.

    in a rare case, it will give you the same points though.

    Marc and Crutchlow skittled my results. I do not think 30pts from the lead is too bad at this point. A one really good weekend and I could, but wont, be back in it.

    I realize we already decided it so I'm fine with it for this year, but I think there should be some sort of penalty for forgetting...

    Maybe it reverts to the previous rounds picks, but only scores the top ten, or positions 3-15 or something like that? Just thinking out loud. doesn't bother me either way.

    i don't think there should be a penalty. look at it as safe bet.

    last year, I tried, halfway hammered on a Sunday monring in the Austin VIP paddock, to put in my predictions on the motoGP website. major PITA on mobile.
    bit better for our interface now. *def. doable after 5 captain cokes before noon.* however, i had to call a buddy in germany to log in to my account and dictate him the picks last year.

    if it would have just taken over the previous ones, i would probably not have bothered.

    This is a lesson people (not picking on you, Dan). When someone proposes a change, and we deliberate, understand that the decision will be real and held to, and not reconsidered after the fact once it seems unfair through the eyes of actual implementation.

    For the record, I was against it. I knew Phil was going to be halfway hammered sometimes and damned if I cared; I wanted to beat his ass.
    However, It passed and will hold court for the season. :D

    If I want to predict the final season standings and leave that as my pick every week, then why not? If you penalize people for not being able to submit a pick every week (life happens) then fewer people will probably join. It’s a good turnout, pick better if you want to win :Poke:

    just a reminder that we only score til position 15, so you don't necessarily need to position all the riders. But if it makes you feel better, continue on.

    There's a lot of movement already in the first 3 races, so it's going to be fun a year.

    Results have been reviewed and are confirmed. Interesting to note that not a single person picked Marc to finish anywhere other than 1st. He does seem to crash out of about 10-15% of races, sometimes while supposedly cruising at the front. Badmoon had awesome high picks for Rins and Miller, very close to spot on for Danilo and Dovi, and a solid lower card. That's how you get 'er done, folks.

    On to Europe and one of my favorite circuits -- Jereth. Love the Andalusian backdrop. Anyone remember the 3-bike drama in Dry Sack last year? Here's a reminder: Dovi overcooks the corner passing Jorge, which forces both too deep outside and quite slow. Jorge recovers by going straight to apex, where Dani was following the tight line. Dani goes flying, Jorge careens off and smacks Dovi and they both go down. Everyone pointed fingers at everyone else. Dovi actually blames Dani for the crash. Wild.
