Could we have a post....the "Injured" list to help make predicting easier? We could all contribute to this list when we know a player has withdrawn or is possibly injured and is still playing?

Why have a list? Most of the time TAT know who is injured and who is not. Normally, if a player w/d, a TAT member will post that on the ongoing tournament thread.

I have two reactions to this. First, I guess I see it as the participants' responsibility to track these kinds of things. Second, I remember when a zillion of us had Tsonga on our teams (I think it was 2008 East Meets West)... He got hurt, so must of us dumped him... At which point, I posted something like, "Now watch him get uninjured and win Paris."

Which he did. :wall:

So, I guess I'm inclined to say it's the participants' responsibility to do their own scouting and make their own decision about how injured a player really is.

Be honest. It just makes it that much more fun when you know a player is injured and perhaps...some of the others haven't been following as closely as they should have and keep the injured on their team.... :)

But that can come back and bite you in the patootie, missin... I think it was the French Open a few years ago... The word on the Internet was that Dimitry Tursunov had only one functioning arm and probably wouldn't be able to play. But come day 1 or 2 of the Suicide Pool, he was still in the draw... I thought I was being really sneaky and smart by picking AGAINST Dimitry in the Suicide Pool. I was so proud of myself for being so well informed.

Dimitry won in straights.

I purposely did not trade Tsonga out that year after he got injured.

That was all my fault. But he DID play on an injured arm for four months :mad:

The first step to recovery is to accept responsibility, M8. Thank you for trying to make amends.

Alternate post: I'll never forgive you. ;)

Please accept my repentance, Dry, I can't live with this sin on my head.

Alternate post: please go choke on your medals.

If you trade a player away, it's OK to put them back on your team at a later date?

(Cannot believe that I am asking a question AND getting involved in all of this the first day of the new year......:mad:)

Once all teams are locked in, and the first tournament has begun- do we still have to be sure that, with trades, our teams do not match anyone else's team?

I think that would be too cumbersome for folks, nelslus. We are monitoring everyone's initial entries (though ultimate responsibility for adhering to this rule still rests the participant), but after that, the best we can do is ask people to participate in a manner that is consistent with the true spirit of TAT's contests, meaning that the competition is truly an individual vs. individual competition.
