Marc71178 created all four quarter-final prediction threads within minutes of each other, didn't he? No reason why you couldn't have posted your predictions for this one along with the others. I know it's only a game, and I don't want to sound rude or anything, but cut-off times are there for a reason. If I am not mistaken, Somerset and a few others missed a couple of matches too, so it'd be extremely unfair if posts made after the start were allowed. Nothing personal, just an honest opinion. :)

I would've gone. Not I am going. I knew it wasn't going to be counted but as far as I know it's not breaking any kind of rule to post what I would've gone for. All games are created within minutes of each other but I've made it a kind of habit to do each one the night before the game. Of course it runs the risk of unseen events preventing me from making my predictions, events such as the ones that occurred last night. I wasn't asking Marc to include me, I knew that I'd missed out so basically your post is redundant because I wasn't seeking to be included.

Nothing, which is why I didn't ask to be included in any way, shape or form.
