Default When you read the following line....

.....what does it mean to you?

IF YOU DO NOT GET YOUR PICK IN BY THE DEADLINE YOU ARE OUT.

I think it's pretty self explanatory.

Obviously some people in my pool don't.

3 times in the last 2 weeks someone did not get their pick in on time.

1 last week. Guy responded that it was on him. Good for you pal.

Tonight. I send out the e-mail with all the picks at 8:36 PM EST.

One of the MENSA members who did not get his pick in REPLIES to the e-mail I sent out at 9:35. He says sorry and he wants Buffalo.

I reply that I am sorry but he is out.

He sends me another 3 e-mails telling me he only missed by an hour.

I guess we understand the bolded statement differently.

It means get off your lazy ass and make your picks. Seriously how hard is it to take 6 1/2 minutes out of your week to make picks?

I understand your anger. People in my pool continuously miss picks, then beg the head to fill them in for them. Idiots.

Make an exception for one person and everyone else will want to bend the rules too.

Pretty plain and simple IMO.

If he keeps this up, you might not invite him to enter again next year.

Had 5 or 6 more e-mail from him after.

Threatening to call the police about my "illegal" gambling activity, Blah, Blah, Blah.

He will get 1 more e-mail from me telling him that I take threats seriously. I will also provide him with the non emergency number to the local police.

The person who entered him and 10 others will not be allowed back.

Hey, he's from New Jersey! See if Ronlabo wants to swing by his place.
