      I'd have been better off taking that approach. I tried swapping athletes who had scored points for ones who looked set to score more. But after making three such swaps and seeing that the points for the 'new' selections (Brathwaite, Lopes, Lavillenie) were not showing up, it was only then that I re-read over the rules and found that they had to be made 24 hours before the athlete's chosen event. D'oh! I binned a perfectly good 115 points!

      I also didn't realise that the World Champs formed part of the season-long fantasy league, so didn't choose any athletes for that either! Double d'oh!

      To top it all off, I was also too late for the T&FN prediction contest! ops: :evil:

      • Hey, what's this? My points seem to be counted correctly and somehow I'm number 1 in the buddy league with 2180 points.

        Of course, it is far too low a score to really be leading - for one thing, my relays predictions were absolutely awful giving only 150 points.

        But, I'm enjoying my temporary moment of glory - and took a screenshot to prove it 8-)

        • Anyone else notice that only 68.40% of contestants picked Bolt as their captain? Some even picked X-Man????

          A poster here, gabyandersen, is currently in third place.

            When I go to 'My team', the relay points calculations seem to be fixed partly, but not completely - it looks like I didn't get the 50 point bonus for the Jamaican 4x100 setting a championship record.
            And for some reason my total still isn't shown correctly. I should be on 2225 points if you sum the points for men's, women's and relay teams, or 2275 if you add the missing 50 points for the CR.

              pretty much same issue here, relays are not added to total and Im not sure if the CR got added in

              Also, mods why was this thread moved to "things not T&F"? If fantasy track is "not T&F" I am not sure what is. Really isnt this subforum for guys to talk about their boats, vacations and stories?

                hey mods help me define how this thread fits this description

                "A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. "

                The fantasy teams are really about who is up to performing for certain meets and is very involved....

                • The point calculations look OK now - at least my score is correct.

                  • For anyone interested you can now click on the teams of the top 10 to see who they picked (a longtime request of some people on this board). hoping to make the transfer history of the winner available as well. I don't think he/she used all the transfers. And interesting to see the initial team v the final team.

                    Hopefully I haven't opened a can of worms with everyone still finding scoring errors for the winner.

                    Now going through and getting rid of all the people who tried to cheat by entering multiple teams for the daily prizes....

                    More work than you think this fantasy stuff.

                      Why didn't I think of that! 8-)

                      Nice to see the winners picks. I just looked at mine again. I got burned badly with Saladino and Kaki.
