No offense but I call bullshit picking Fox after it was announced that he won't be back.

I'm not saying entering the picks a bit late shouldn't be allowed but not Fox in this situation.





Fox was such a "gimme" I can't believe everyone didn't have him as a ten point pick even before the announcement.
I didnt pick him because I knew last season, he wouldnt be back...kinda the concensus all year.


That sort of makes him more-than-obvious as a choice though, doesn't it? If you knew it so far in advance and didn't choose him, that's on you. Mangini getting fired is pretty much the same thing...more-than-obvious that he was gone at season's end, but I forgot to pick him. That's on me.

Anyway the picking of Fox by anyone that submitted it before January 1st isn't the issue in my mind, but AA submitted his/her picks after january 1st, and possibly after it had been "oficially" announced that Fox would not be back. that's the only reason I called BS on that specific selection by that specific poster being allowed.

Whatever Beej or Claw rule on this is all good.

Yeah, but that would mean he wasnt fired? if we all knew he was gone from the beginning, and wasnt fired, as his contract wasn't renewed, then that would mean he's disqualified, as we're talking about fired coaches? he wasn't fired.....
