I looked for this thread in Fantasy Sports, couldn't find it, and thought it was deleted. Went into a baffled rage for a second.

*** damn cherrypicker. Enjoy your six points. :p

(Who am I kidding? I had him on the list and scratched him for Brokaw.)

Yeah, points are claimed. I'll update once I get home. Add somebody new unless you want to roll with 9 people.

We used to watch Barney Miller together, so this seems...odd. RIP, Mr. Vigoda.

Wait... we can add people after someone dies?

I thought this was "just pick 10 and that's who you get" sort of thing

(I've never done one of these so bear with me)

I don't think people should be able to add more. I bet most of us won't have any of the 10 bite the dust

I had the only rule as being that if you pick a person, you needed to have them locked in for 24 hrs. In the pool that I was in outside of here, we called this "the no ambulance chasing" rule, or picking a celeb who is getting carted to the hospital for a overdose, bad accident, etc., and was probably on borrowed time. Now that I think of it, I'm not even sure if that rule was ever enforced.

Since it's still early and only two people have points, should we vote on this?

Roster changes can take place...
... whenever, as long as a pick is locked for 24 hrs?
... after somebody gains points?
... after a month?
... never! You are stuck with who you picked.

Was gonna do a poll in the OP, but wanted to see if there are any options that might have been missed before doing so.

I vote that you can't change nor can you add people after someone else died.

Yeah. I feel like it should be like a pick 'em sort of thing, where you choose X amount of games to lock in and once you lock them in, that's what you're stuck with for the day/week/whatever. A game ending does not allow you to pick another.

We picked our 10 to start. I feel like that's what we should have to stick with through the whole thing. Allowing people to re-add unnecessarily skews the game in favor of people who get lucky early (wow this sounds kinda morbid).

I say the 10 you start with are the 10 you're stuck with. It's as much of a "Can you pick the right 10" as it is a "Can you pick people who will get you the most points?"

But the game is more fun when you're able to add more people.

I see it as like a lottery. You don't get a chance to change 3 of your 4 numbers after you get one number right. What you've picked, you're stuck with.
