I'm not trying to call anybody out, but READ THE RULES... If somebody takes Spieth or Day with their first choice, your choice of Spieth and Day aren't ever

So as I sit at my desk, boringly "participating" in a webinar, I tallied the results to date on the Masters picks.
And by that I mean the void picks, and there are 2 types of voids - void when picked, and voided by a later pick

Voided by a later pick I have 21
Void at the time of the pick 61
Triple crown winners (all 3 picks void at the time of the pick 7 posters for a total of 21 void picks)

It certainly get more difficult the later you pick, as there are so many picks already made; whereas the problem with picking early is trying to guess who won't be picked to first  to void your 2nd and 3rd pick, and who will be picked second to void your 3rd pick.
But to be fair I don't remember a winner of these type contest the last couple of years not coming from first picks.

And just from skimming the thread it looks like most of those bad picks are made as someone's first post or very close to it.  I find it amusing that someone would sign up to a forum and in their first contribution fail to read the OP.

    • Yes, they cause the worse roadblocks and they slow things down the worst.  Why?  Because they are accepted as “smart” or “accomplished” and pontificate like they know everyone while you second guess yourself to make sure you are saying things that are accurate.   Hands down, these are the kind of people who lead to high turnover in companies.  They revel in their own enlightened opinions and it takes too long for them to drive their ignorance off a cliff sometimes.
    • What I’ve read is that cnn requires vaccination if you come into the office and they weren’t, so I guess this is the right thing to do.  We are faced with a very difficult situation and we need everyone to pitch in.  Flying on an airplane, going to a crowded nightclub or concert or many of the things we do is not a right, it’s a privilege based on a private company offering up something.  They have the right to request saftey for their employees and other customers.    Vaccine has been given to millions of people without incident, just go if you haven’t already.

    • Calkins: Bryson DeChambeau is unvaccinated, unrepentant — and delusional - Memphis Local, Sports, Business & Food News | Daily Memphian Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? Then why is it, when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine, he sounds like such a dummy?  Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? That’s his schtick, isn’t it? He studied physics at SMU. His nickname is the “Mad Scientist.”  He can talk endlessly about training his brain to find the proper balance between the “parasympathetic and sympathetic states.” Turns out that’s bunk. DeChambeau is a dummy. Indeed, he is the worst kind of dummy, the kind that likes to pretend he is smart. You know the type, don’t you?
