  • The T&FN Game

    OK, as promised in respond to a challenge a few weeks back, here's my picks in the 20-winners game for all the world to see:

    20--Ayhan
    19--US m4x4
    18--Guevara
    17--Mutola
    16--Russia w4x4
    15--Sánchez
    14--Pechonkina
    13--Devers
    12--El G
    11--Cherono
    10--Lebedeva
    9--Sebrle
    8--Bekele 10K
    7--T Wash
    6--Olsson
    5--Murofushi
    4--Fazekas
    3--U.S. m4x1
    2--U.S. w4x1
    1--Cloete

    By the way, my guess is that the leader after 1 event (m20W) is.... nobody!

    Anybody else want to share their picks before the truth begins to be known? (Tough choices, as evidenced by fact that my pick of a month or so ago as the biggest lock--individual events only--Fazekas, is now only No. 17 [No. 15 individual] among my picks!)

    Why not give everyone access to everyone else's picks somehow like in the Run-Down game? I assume that if one's entry link gets posted here, it can't get edited-although that would likely improve mine.

          How do I get to my predictions? From TFN home page it takes you to a page that says 'the contest is closed'.

              You don't get to your predictions on-line - you look on the piece of paper you wrote them down on.

                You are kidding right? Just hit the link that you were sent when you entered.

                  The email link gets you to the contest landing page, not your list.

                    Well MJD, you don't have to be snotty about it, but yes, I went to that link and there were my choices.

                        Uh oh seems to have figured it out. You were sent an email after you entered. Here is mine. Note the first instruction. I just got my first result emailed to me like you all would have. Zero points out of a potential 209. Pretty tough to be snotty about that. I think I'll go with Godina getting screwed.

                        MJD,

                          Maybe it's not so bad after all. I still have 19 in and Godina was a one point pick.
