If it makes you feel better JIL's big mouth cost him a booster

I am a big fan of if you don't like something, say it once it happens.
If you wait for the results to be against you, then opportunity missed

Maybe he didn't see it til later. I think he picked well before the discussion and some folks don't bounce back to the thread after making their picks.

I thought there was some discussion about what "corrected picks" might be allowed and I don't recall picking a dude who played on Thursday night on Friday and then changing it being one of the allowable changes. I personally would have thought that's would come down under picking injured player or repeat triple, neither of which came under the allowable re-picks.

That said UA? made a ruling before the weekend games and I think it was fair, but if I got eliminated on such a ruling I might feel different.

Due to circumstances beyond your control, I didn't get the scoring completed. I should be able to complete it tonight. My apologies for the delay.

In the meantime, feel free to start posting triplets for this week.

accobrakid  DBrees       SBarkley     DAdams        143  31 118 292
Congrats to ArthurItas for winning the Week 10 booster!

Meanwhile, we've got a lot going on at the bottom. accobra_kid is our lowest score, and is boosterless, so there's our first booted player.
jesusislord comes in next at 299, but has a booster, so is now moved to 299+50=349.
We've now got a tie for the next lowest score! Both ShivamS and silentassassin are now the second lowest score at 343, but ShivamS has a booster and silentassassin does not, so ShivamS moves up to 343+50=393, and silentassassin is our second bootee.

But wait - we're not done!!

Spoiler:
I revisited the ruling I made last Friday regarding the JJacobs pick. My thought process at the time was:

1) I need to make a quick ruling, since players will pick differently depending on the call.
2) I completely missed that JJacobs had already played, and if it hadn't been pointed out, I would've just let the pick stand, so it was an easy mistake.
3) Only 11 minutes had gone by, so it was a quick correction.

However, as I think about how the game has been run in the past, my logic is faulty on both 2 and 3:

- On 2, just because I missed it doesn't matter. This game is set up so everyone can watch what's happening, and that's part of the beauty of the game here - the pressure's not just on me, since y'all are playing and following along. So that wasn't a good standard.

- On 3, an important part of the game is tracking your picks, and not making mistakes when posting triplets. If you happen to post a duplicate player (like, oh... CWentz), you're still stuck with that player for the week. Furthermore, the mistake was not caught by the person making the pick, so it wasn't even a self-correction (had that happened, there's a small window to rationalize my call, kinda sorta). So the player needs to live with the mistake (and NumerclNeur was willing to do so).

Therefore I'm allowing anyone who survives under either scenario to survive. Under the alternate scenario NumerclNeur would've received a 0 at RB and ended up with a weekly score of 295, and would've been the second bootee. Therefore silentassassin is back in the game.

As for the boosters... I don't feel right fully re-instating them, since other players made picks off the approved NumerclNeur triplet as well, so that would give a little too much advantage to just fully give those back. As a compromise ShivamS and jesusislord will get their boosters back, but will not be able to make them active - they may only be applied passively. In the event of owning multiple boosters, these boosters will be the first passive boosters to be applied.

My apologies for not making the call correctly in the first place, but hopefully this is a reasonable compromise to get us back on track.
tl;dr version:
Spoiler:
I messed up, so reinstating silentassassin as well as semi-restoring the used boosters

For Week 11 we will be booting TWO more players. Good luck to all the survivors!
