After the first Championship games on Tuesday, Sir John noted that the operators of the CL fantasy game had a major error in their rule enforcement. Today they corrected the blunder.
The rules state that no manager may have more than three players from one team on their roster. After the first set of games, team Francis, managed by Francis Lau was the top fantasy player in the world with 56 points. Only problem was Francis had six Chelsea players. The second ranked team, Weezyfc, managed by Daniel Koomson had 53 points, but also had six Chelsea players.
Today the operators of the game acknowledged their error and posted a warning to managers over the three-player limit that they would have points deducted from players and would be given a chance to transfer players in and out to be in compliance. The operators devised a formula of choosing the players with the least amount of points as the players whose points would not count.
In the case of team Francis, points for Lampard, Terry and Cech did not count. For team Weezyfc, points for Cole and Sturridge did not count and Ramires was not qualified to play so only points for Cole and Sturridge were lost.
The result is that team Francis plummeted from first to 248th and Weezyfc went from second to 97th.
Sir John thanks the operators for taking the necessary action and restoring integrity to the competition. Based on the outcome of this "investigative reporting" by a former TV news anchor, perhaps those who have been critical of a Yank offering his insight on the beautiful game would allow him into your favorite pub to share a pint or two. :)
As always I remain,
