    i'll fix the links

    and as for the rules, moderators are the law of the land as always stated and therefore we are allowed to make calls for the better of the league, but i dont feel as if this call would have actually better'd the league but instead would have benefited one competitor or the other in which case i refused to make a moral call and have either crying in my ear without my reasoning being backed by some fact, and the fact is that the rules had been broken, i had already made a moral judgement as we all did (being moderators) in letting the verse stand (which i actually didnt notice until GL? pointed it out), but when he pulls a rule into question, no matter how much i dont like him i cant just shit in his face

    we all have to look at the bigger picture here, if i had passed judgment in metasin's favor, it would have led to worse things, and then i would be forced to make other moral judgments and my credibility would inevitably be shot with me not following rules and bending them for certain people,

    ask yourself which do you want to govern the league, my personal opinions and moral judgments, or clearly defined rules that we should all know and abide by?

    next week the same thing would have happened and case law would have proven that rules mean diddly squat so long as you can declare your side will somehow better the league

    no, bettering the league would have been for GL? to accept defeat, or for Meta to accept his fault and learn from it and instead of chewing my head off or threatening to quit the league, opting to set an example for the newer participants and stay and regain his ground, to be the bigger man and bow his head and admit that he fucked up however minor it may have been, of course GL? was very anal in "playing that card" but the end result is that his reasoning was valid and that's all i have to go by

    it's a terrible thing and there were other options such as 3way champ matches or things of that nature, but its all more complicated than its worth and all break the rules in some sort, the easiest and most justifiable call was to DQ the verse, i hope we can all see that as clear as i do

    lucy,

    you do understand that my top 3 should come after the predictions and things, because it is my top 3 for the upcoming week

    i thought i pointed this out before, and i also thought i sent them in order (maybe not)

    I still don't see how you can predict a top 3 though Q .. it should be for the previous week as a 'reward' for efforts .. all 3 of them could no-show this week or pull some dumb shit .. how would that make them top competitors? ..

    maybe it's this server change .. but images aren't showing for me ..

    they're not showing for me anymore either

    and its top 3 competitor's of the upcoming week, have you ever read what i wrote? it's who i think will perform the best or be the biggest competitor's for that week, and i always have good reasoning

    i dont like doing top 3 of the previous week because since i quit doing breakdowns, i rarely read every verse and it would be unfair to base a top 3 on 4 matches

    Seriously, DAD picks the most played out shit and thinks he's pro. Next week he's going to have a tough decision between Pamela Anderson and Cindy Margolis.
