Making it sound like an after school special.  Nice. Not that I really care because I wasn't going to win anyway, but technically the 2nd post is a correction of the first post and not a "multiple entry".  Also, another person was allowed to edit his post...just saying.

Note: I'm not arguing or whining, just being slightly difficult, so please do not take any of this back and forth as a sign of disrespect.

Have a nice day.

Never seen so many low post count "members" - seems alot of guys joined the forum for a chance to win a driver.     Probably not a bad idea in hindsight ...

It's not a bad way to get new members...also, it could be one easy way around the "one entry" rule.  Not saying that is actually happening with any of these, but the possibility is there.  It does seem a little suspicious, but then again, I'm already DQ'd so what do I know.

One of the reasons we do things like this. We'll have some bigger ones here in the future, too. :)

FWIW, someone PMed me with similar thoughts and wondered if people were registering second or third accounts. The answer to that is that the rules state a member needs to be in good standing. Should someone with a low post count win, we'll do due diligence to make sure it's not a second account from someone, as that would be in violation of the rules of the site and would place such a member not in good standing.

See above. You posted while I was writing my response. It's not at all likely to happen, as creating a second account is grounds for immediate banning.

I immediately thought the same exact thing. I also thought someone could have made 90 something (or the size of the field) accounts just to have one guess for the entire field, lol! So if they only have the one post that's stating their guesses what happens?

    • I mentioned Radovich vs NFL - Radovich seeking compensation after having joined another league and was forever banned from the NFL in any form, even later in life trying to join as a coach or something. SC sides with Radovich The article I linked mentions the fairly recent NCAA vs Alston - on restricting college player compensation: "the NCAA is acting in violation Section 1 of the Sherman Act, which prohibits any “contract, combination, or conspiracy in restraint of trade or commerce.”"   NCAA v. Alston: The Beginning of the End or the End of the Beginning? In its unanimous 9-0 decision in NCAA v. Alston, the Supreme Court upheld a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit that struck down NCAA caps on student-athlete academic... How about LA Colliseum vs NFL, when the raiders were blocked from moving to LA in the 80s due to a rule that required 3/4 vote of teams in the NFL. LA Colliseum wins saying rule was violating Sherman Anti Trust There are dozens more.   The common thing here to me is that, it doesn't matter if there is a "rule" even if it was agreed to if the rule is illegal.
    • You aren't saying anything unreasonable. For some reason this is a very emotionally charged topic and it brings out people who want things to be a certain way regardless of the law.  Five minutes on Google reading law blogs shows the players have at least pretty good anti-trust case.   The Supreme Court ruled against the NFL in the 1950s,  when they blacklisted players who played in a rival league.  The PGA Tour colluding with the European Tour, World Golf Rankings, the entities that organize majors and Ryder Cup and potentially going against their charter as a non-profit are all going to be brought up.  I am sure the PGA Tour has consulted with lawyers and will have counterpoints. A lot of it will probably depend on judges. I would guess the current administration would be more amenable to the player's suit than most as they are already pursuing companies over non-competes and collusion. You shouldn't even need Google for at least one example.  Trump and the USFL vs the NFL.  They won but weren't awarded damages. Otherwise you could Google and find this case as the first thing listed. Radovich v. National Football League :: 352 U.S. 445 (1957) :: Justia US Supreme Court Center Radovich v. National Football League  
    • What precedent? You keep saying this but you haven’t cited examples of where a rival league won a suit against a major league for anti-trust in the US. Name the sport, the leagues involved and cite the lawsuit. Right now your devils advocacy seems just like arguing for argument sake. But you haven’t provided any concrete facts just your disdain for the PGAT.  
    • We've got LIV vs PGA Tour match play on right now and its getting intense
