Actually, the 0 points for doping rule was brought in after a large number of teams had been submitted. It was brought in on the morning of 9th December. A few hours later Hugo said that all teams had to be in, meaning many who did see it ( I never did as I was out all day) didnt really have time to consider it anyway.Timmy-loves-Rabo said:I know, but are we to be naive and believe they just doped in the race they got caught? please. (BTW maybe this can be the case sometimes, but yeah, I'm sure you get my point)
The punishment score (0) was a less naive look at doping. And like I said, it meant players had to think about picking more risky riders, please refer to my above post on what I mean by this.
I agree with this. CQ takes away a riders points once they have have been officially found guilty. Is it fair to take away someone's points before due process? What if they are found innocent?luckyboy said:Shouldn't the points be exactly the same as whatever CQ give? Seeing as this is the CQ Manager game.
Ironically i spent a lot of posts telling people that spending over 500 points wasnt wise and yet the 3 who i identified as worth the 500+ point cost (Boonen, Cunego who i did choose, Ricco who I didnt) all look like failures.Ferminal said:Oh, you have Boonen too
I thought he was an easy 1200 points, at least.
Lucky to break even now.
Another flaw in the "big names" strategy I chose, especially if they target one or two big races (like Flanders and P-R), only to be struck down by lady luck.
Might have to avoid anyone over 500 points next season.
Cunego on 369 against 659 last year is hardly a failure yet and it is despite him having problems. Still along way to go. I agree with you though Boonen, Cunego and Ricco all looked like excellent choices, with Goss I thought they were the 4 best high points buys. I was regretting not having Ricco in my team for a while.The Hitch said:Ironically i spent a lot of posts telling people that spending over 500 points was wise and yet the 3 who i identified as worth the 500+ point cost (Boonen, Cunego who i did choose, Ricco who I didnt) all look like failures.
Boonen however still has the tour, Paris tours and worlds to make up some points.
