    Re: Fantasy Athletics competitions for 2011

    By the way, if y'all are wondering if anyone at IAAF is paying attention to this thread, I think the answer is yes: I notice one of our league members is Chris Butler, who I presume is the same Chris Butler employed with IAAF who helped us out with the game two years ago.

    Still having this same problem. I submitted my team, then afterward, clicking on any of the lower buttons (My team, my leagues, etc.) just takes me to the front page of the site. I need to pick a captain and can't, nor can I even see my team. Gaah. I appreciate IAAF trying to reach out to their fans, but they've got to do a better job on the tech end.
    Hmm, apparently it was a browser problem. I switched from Firefox to Safari and it works now.

    Ok, about to join the league now.

    Can you transfer athletes how ever you want to in this version? "Only" pick 8 winners every time without limitations?

    Just tested by swapping Frydrych with Benjamin Kiplagat and back again; no problems.

    Mump is now finally in the league!

    Predictions are always hard at these early meetings when athletes are opening their seasons. Make a mistake early and it's going to be hard catching up later in the year when athlete's are in a groove and everyone's predicting the same people!

    Technical events are especially tough, athletes can crash out so easily in the PV and HJ. Who'd have thought Thorkildsen would finish so low down in Doha? Who had Mohr down to beat Lavillenie? On form, Vlasic and Spiegelberg should win their events but who knows whether we'll see more upsets!

    I try so hard to be objective but I just can't help sneaking in a favourite in the hope that they do win!

    Wikipedia has a list of Shanghai meeting records. They're missing a number of events, but that might be because the meet has never featured them... not sure (that does seem to be the case with men's steeplechase at least!).

    I'm assuming we can amend our team if provisional lists change, before the meet starts, of course.
    You should probably amend your team anyhow, unless you had a very good reason to pick four athletes who've never been on a 2011 Shanghai startlist.
    :lol:
    I got carried away, and ended up looking at the wrong list....
    ops:
    Corrections made, but I'll probably revisit them on Saturday, if I remember.

    Where does it state the country limitation?

    I can't see it on this page:
    http://iaafworldathleticsclub.org/Fanta ... lcome.aspx

    So, am I right in saying we can "keep" an athlete from meet to meet (i.e. have they done away with the rule from previous years where you only got to select them once)?

    Interestingly, when I was selecting Jamaicans and Americans, after I picked two of each, I was prevented from picking a third of each. So, yes, it is in effect in a way, I guess.

    It is very confusing. It would be wise to visit the site on Saturday to make whatever changes. I am playing it safe with the assumption that they will not allow to enter the same athlete repeatedly, if though the rules don't state it.

    Mump, since the site gives you such a grief, try to re-register under different name and then follow the drill.

    AS - the country limitation isn't actually stated anywhere, but it seems to be in force, so... :wink: I think we can select athletes multiple times, yes, but this could turn out to be an unpredictable contest rule-wise.

    Our league is currently at 16 members, not including mump, who hasn't applied for membership. We look forward to you working out how to

    Everybody - it's now possible to update your team with athletes from Very Provisional Shanghai start lists (http://www.iaaf.org/mm/document/competi ... f24427.pdf). It's a bit confusing because the athletes and events from Doha are also still available!
