I’ve had a few late entries come in over the past few days, and in my infinite benevolence I’ve decided to keep the tote open until the end of January to cater for all you lucky buggers taking extended vacations. However, out of consideration for those who managed to get their picks in on time, I’m placing an additional restriction on latecomers:
From here on in, only new ponies will be accepted. If somebody else has already picked him or her, tough shit – you should have gotten in earlier
I’m actually considering applying a first-in-first-served, no duplicates rule for the entire pool in 2010. It hardly seems fair that people who get their picks in good and early have to share the points and glory with the vultures who come in late and seem to just grab the likeliest candidates from other people’s picks. Then again, is not a dead pool by its very nature all about rewarding vultures and carrion-like behavior? Leave it with me and we’ll thrash out a ruling over the year.
The judge has spoken. I AM THE LAW!
