Team 8

We have a scoring problem.

I did not look at your kill thread and it was brought to my attention there was a violation. And for that I apologize for this mess up.

In the rules it clearly state three things.

You have to have pictures of measurements to validate your score claim.
If you don't feel like taking pictures you have to use the default scores.
And finally you have to enter your teammate two birds first. And apparently Bigshow killed two and had no pictures of measurements.

Looks like the two default scores of 39 for Bigshows birds changes team 8 score.
The 71 bird goes to 39 and you have to replace one of your other birds with the other 39.

Are we in agreement Team 8?

Is what it is crap happens. ? Though the 2 extra birds Chris and I killed those don't fill in the default scores? Since 2 birds was not measured correctly they shouldn't count at all right?

I'm sure Shooter and them must have some sort of violations also that will knock them back about 70 points!? :)

I think he could have scored 10, without any help from us, and did well. :D I feel inadequate. What an impressive year!

If they do that's on them to come forward about it. To win by default well take it how you can get it I guess

I Feel bad for Team 8 they had 4 guys on there that worked hard and did it right.
I also kept telling folks to read the rules they are short and sweet. I asked before the contest if these rules made folks happy?
Got little response. I don't know how to make a contest fair if you don't measure your birds?

The default scores were their for people that didn't want to or forgot to measure.

I talked to Robert Cont520 and he is good with the new results and said he agrees with the no picture proof rule.
I'm sorry I did not look at their kill thread and alert him to the problem.

I will post the results.

I think we should start a thread and folks can talk about rules only for next year. I like how simple the rules are but if others want to give input.
I am open to it and any help with the contest.

Doug you seem to have done it right. If you "choose" not to post a pic then you get what you get.
Some times it is forgotten that we have choices, and choices have consequences. Some very small like a turkey contest and others, well, not so small.

There are no numbers on any of my clocks below 8. Then all of a sudden, 2 days before turkey season they appear. Then right after the season they disappear.
What's up with that

I screwed up when I posted our score. I just went off of the score that was on the kill thread and didn't check to see if he posted pictures. My bad. I killed 7 this year and 5 of them scored 60+. 2 others were 2 year olds. Maybe the guys who don't post pics or do it right should be banned from the contest next year.

X2 on the ban If you can't do it right and won't respond to pms about your faulty scores kick them off the team. I like that idea we made sure we did everything right and one guy screwed us.

I've got to get this off my chest and apologize for my smart azz mouth and comments.
After I calmed down, I started feeling cheap, like dirt, and sick to my stomach.
I ended up sleeping the afternoon away. I got up and came close to PMing Doug, and suggesting that maybe to let you guy's throw out Bigsho's birds, and just replace them with your others.
But once I crunched a few numbers, I realized it was not gonna change anything.

Again Robert, sorry for my comments.

Whoa just saw this and really don't unerstand what went on......but come guys it is for FUN!

And if it means that much to you to win this contest ~ well maybe you are hunting for all the wrong reasons.....
Still proud to be a Team 8 member.....and I only posted one bird as the other 4 did not beat my first.....so maybe I am at fault too!
