You should've all received this pm from me:
Spoiler:

I'm giving everyone the same deal Patience got:

If you had the home & away teams flipped because you used the incorrect template that I provided...

If you have a largely-objective method of determining each game's winner & that method hasn't been altered since before the season began...

I'll allow you to redo your entire schedule...even week 1 (wtf?!?! even week 1?!?!). Yes, even week 1...because your model doesn't know what really happened and so it wouldn't be affected by the results. It would provide the same picks regardless.

A few things to keep in mind:
It's just a game on the internet.
It's supposed to be fun.
You're on your honor.
No whining.

Patience now has three entries in the contest: Patience_Bad (his original picks based on faulty home/away information), Patience_wk_1_Bad (his original picks for wk 1 along with new picks for wks 2-17), Patience (all new picks - even wk 1).

fyi...the udpated consensus picks will not include Patience_Bad nor Patience_wk_1_Bad.

I got it but I don't know what was wrong with the "original template". Looks like the original post was edited and I didn't keep enough to know. Were all the home/away teams flipped?

There was an update a few days before kickoff, but the original template had them all flipped, yes.

I used home field to pick most of my divisional matchup games between teams of similar caliber. That said I don't think I've got time to go back through, so unless something pops up I'm going to stand pat on the offer to adjust.

Wait, was the mistake only in the Excel file? I copied the post with the schedule and worked off of that. And I only did it on September 3, so don't know if it was fixed before then. In that case, I'll only be revising my Week 1 picks.

Looking back at Weeks 9-11, looks like the picks I would have went HF on all look right. Three posts of outloud thinking leading to I ain't changing a thing.
