  • Re: Fantasy Athletics competitions for 2011

    I find picking winners for this one in general difficult... I really don't know how am gonna fair in this one...

      Well, I received my prize or prizes depending on how you view it. My recommendation to all other winners is when they ask for your address, request the shirt size you would like. They never told me I was getting a polo/golf shirt as a prize and they sent me a medium, which is too small. ops: Guess I need to get off the couch more.

      The other items in the package were an edition of Spikes magazine (2008 issue), the IAAF 2010 Yearbook, a copy of IAAF's Magazine (2010 issue 1) and an IAAF pen to go along with the shirt. The shirt is from the DL, but from Doha.?.? Nice, but I was hoping for something from the event, Shanghai. Even an autograph pic of one of the winners would have made me happy.

      Sorry, not complaining as I would play even if the game had no prizes. So, thank you IAAF for hosting the fantasy game. 8-)

        ~12 hours to go (please note that team selections are again scheduled to close at midnight UTC, not a couple hours before the meet starts!)

        I checked every team in our league for athletes not on the latest startlists. Four teams (Flumpy, dakidd, trackstar and Seeksreal) featured one such athlete (Rudisha/Liu). A number of teams haven't been updated for Rome at all, but their owners presumably know this, so they haven't been listed :wink:

              Has anyone found a successful outlet to to get issues addressed. The website has not been "categorized" (by who I have no idea) so I can't get to it from work. That in combination with the early cut off of transfers makes updating my team today nearly impossible.

                Updated official startlists in (almost certainly the last we'll get before the deadline, with the possible exception of m400mH, which is in a different format for some reason). Samitova-Galkina is gone; a quick look indicated that all other picks are still in (except Rudisha et al. of course), but don't trust this 100% if you're the worrying type.

                    Wow, talk about short notice. I had printed out the fields yesterday afternoon and she was still there.

                      I don't know what was going on with my team. The people you saw aren't the people I chose last night at all??? :? Not sure what happened there.

                      They've all been changed now.

                          I'm off to a great start so far with 3 wins out of 3 but looking at some of my strange later picks I'm certain that's not going to continue.

                            But you have to take some risks to get ahead.
