CSS Results for May 22
« on: May 22, 2006, 01:37:56 PM »
A fairly good day overall, despite two rather random showcases. I think we've started to get used to those Yamaha Waverunners, and I'm quite sure that was a Hi-Lo 17' trailer, but Rich never actually said the brand on the air. Naturally, a couple of overbids, one by only $135, and one foul. There were also a lot of very close bids; it only took $100 or less to determine placements in several cases.

I think we need to find a Grey Ear Remedy for the people who forget to click it. It's not contagious! :-D

Noteworthy today: BuddyTom crosses the $500K mark in money score for the season.

STAGE PLAYER would have had the worst overbid of the season if they could have actually bid $150,000 (on a TRAILER?)

Oh yes, and PriceFan985 doubled on the trailer, picking up the cash, the points, and his 13th win this season, leaving him only one win away from tying FPGWillyT for most wins this season!

Wow, so NCC wasn't the only one to save me from Ludwig getting money. Nice job (as always), PF985!

Man, after everyone declared their bids I was sure I had won at least some money.  But, people covered me on both.

Man, I've really hit 'self-destruct' mode, haven't I?

Even when I make good bids, I can't score points!  What's wrong with me?  :-x

I'm going to champion Armadillo's cause, just this once, and say that we give him the points.  He was out last week when the new foul rule was instituted, and as a regular Season 34 player who did not have the same opportunities to become accustomed to the rule that the rest of you did…I think a little slack is in order.  :)

I actually disagree...I was here when the rule was created two weeks ago (just not when it was first enforced a week ago), and I should have learned my lesson two weeks ago when I caused the one-week 'amnesty period' by doing the exact same thing.  I broke the rule, I knew it was there, I deserve a zero today.

...of course, I wouldn't argue if a benevolent CSS dictator decided to overturn his decision.  :-)

After carefully considering the situation, given that Marc has championed the cause of PriceFanArmadillo's FOUL, I have decided to give him some credit for today. However, the "no grey ear" penalty is that instead of receiving the 91.15 points he earned, he will get the mean average of the raw point scores for today (that is, without the DSW) which is 80.43 (I know the spreadsheet below is wrong, but I had calculated that number without the stage player, or some such idiotic mistake). I hope that this is satisfactory to all parties; I had to make an executive decision, and here it is.

Can I please have some tomatoes thrown at Heels for just ASSUMING there is just NO possible way I myself will get money the next few days?  I am getting a smidgen huffy about this :)  Yes, I may be a resident garfer-- I am also the only person ( unless I  am badly mistaken ) to get 2 DSWs on consecutive days this year. :)  ( I am also the only weirdo to  win one showcase on one day while having the worse non-over bid on the other as well If I am not mistaken about that, too. :) )

You are mistaken...985 got three(?) doubles on consecutive days not two weeks ago.

Don't get too discouraged if heels overtakes you, Ludwig.  As of Tuesday, you're only .08 behind garffreak for the last points playoff spot.
