    Normally do an update on these bank holiday weekends, listing how well/badly our selections are doing in the more obscure events. Different this year sadly.
    So I thought I'd check to see how our 40 events stack up in the midst of covid-19, and whether there is some path to having a reasonable competition.

    Ideally I'd like to get the comp played, seeing as everyone spent at least an hour coming up with initial selections.

    I'm not an expert by any means, but I got the sense the last week that there seems to be a desire to start getting things back up and running worldwide, and sport would likely be a part of that. Whether the 'curve' is flattening enough I don't know.

    Anyway, after a bit of research this seems to be the state of play of the 40 events.

    Finished Events 3
    SPOILER[TABLE]Horse Racing Cheltenham Gold Cup
    NFL Superbowl Champions
    Tennis Aussie Open Mens Champion
    [/TABLE]


    Started events- intention still to finish 6
    SPOILER[TABLE]Soccer Champions League No dates as yet
    Soccer Europa League No dates as yet
    Rugby 6 Nations top tryscorer No dates, but I think they'll make every effort to finish this
    Darts Darts Premier League, League Phase Intend to re-start at beginning of August
    Rugby League Super League Grand Champions Probably a much shortened season, then play-offs
    Aussie Rules Grand Final Probably a much shortened season, then play-offs
    [/TABLE]


    Started events – not sure if intend to finish 3
    SPOILER[TABLE]GAA Football National Football League Division 2 Ideally they could use the remaining games as 'prep games' for the championship, but it may be lost
    Ice Hockey Stanley Cup Champions Talk of a) cancellation or b) going straight to play-offs using existing league standings
    Basketball NBA Champions No decision until May, could be straight to playoffs or cancellation
    [/TABLE]


    Events not yet started, still intending to go-ahead 19SPOILER[TABLE]Soccer EPL LAST Place 31/12/20 I'd need Leeds/WBA to have got a fair shot at promotion. & at least 4 games to be played in the new season
    Hurling Munster Champions Possibly knockout rather than league basis, but this would be fine
    Hurling All Ireland Champions Again likely to be a format change, but fine as long as there's a one-two
    GAA Football Ulster Champions
    Horse Racing Epsom Derby Likely behind closed doors and later than normal
    Golf US Masters Re-scheduled for November
    Golf US Open Re-scheduled for September
    Golf Ryder Cup Highest Points Scorer
    Cricket T20 Blast Still intending to play, possibly in a shortened format
    Cricket T20 World Cup In October, so should be OK
    Snooker World Championship Winner Re-scheduled for September
    Snooker UK Championship Winner In December, should be OK
    Tennis French Open Womens Champion Re-scheduled for September
    Tennis Davis Cup In November in Spain, hopefully OK
    Baseball World Series Likely a much-shortened season but “there will be baseball” apparently.
    Cycling Tour De France Intending to race, possibly later than normal. Possible course alterations
    Darts World Chanpionship BEST ENGLISH In December, should be OK
    Poker WSOPME Last Longest May be online, but if its a $10K event called WSOP Main Event I'll accept it
    Team Handball Womens European Championship In December, should be OK
    [/TABLE]


    Definitely cancelled Events 9SPOILER[TABLE]Golf British Open Quite surprised they didn't try to save this
    Rugby Heineken Cup We all picked Leinster so its 'cancelled' as far as matters in this competition
    Rugby Mens Olympic 7s
    Tennis Wimbledon Womens Champion
    Soccer Euro 2020
    Boxing Olympics Country Most Medals
    Field Hockey Mens Olympics
    Volleyball Mens Olympics
    Curling Mens World Championships
    [/TABLE]


    Possible replacement events
    To keep the spirit of the 'picking in advance' I'd have a cut-off point (30/06 or 31/07 seem good) for selections for these events.
    SPOILER[TABLE]Soccer EPL Top Scorer on 31/12/20
    Golf US PGA Championship
    Rugby 7s First event of 20/21 season, usually Dubai in December
    Tennis US Open (Womens most likely as more open)
    Formula One A race, don't know which one, possibly without Hamilton
    Others May be events scheduled to replace the Olympic events
    [/TABLE]


    So I think on balance there still exists a chance we can get a decent competition out of this. So we carry on for the time being and see where things stand in another month.

      Re the GAA comps, the proposas I have seen are that the league will not finish, the provincial championships will be run as planned but only the top two progress straight to AI semi. AI finals proposed to be played on 18th and 25th October. All subject to approval of course from higher authorities than the GAA.

        I'll rebuild this thread over the upcoming long weekend, as unfortunately all the previous tables/leaderboards etc are gone.

        Looks like sport is getting ready to start again - Aussie Rules and Derby have a date for resumption, EPL is moving down the path, positive noises from NBA and hockey etc.
        I'll find out any info I can about the other events.

        I don't think we've officially lost any more events since I flagged nine as being cancelled in early April.
        So with some specially selected replacement events we may be able to get this going again for the second half of the year.

          There's a wee bug with tables that they can't be put inside Spoiler Tags so apologies for the size of this post, hopefully Dom will get around to see if it's fixable.

              The story so far #3.
              And suddenly all the sport got postponed for 3 months.
              When I last checked we had definitely lost 9 events, and another 4 looked in danger.
              Nothing much has changed - no more events are lost but events like the GAA look dubious. Ryder Cup seems to opposed by some key players.
              On the other hand some are starting back up with the Epsom Derby scheduled for early July and soccer looking good.
              I'll give basketball, icehockey,cricket and rugby union/league another few weeks to see what they are doing.
              I'd like to get to 35 events so will need to get some replacements, but at the moment few sports have definite calendars for the months ahead.

                ….

                Volleyball Mens Olympics

                Possible replacement events. Would be looking for selection to be made by 31/07 to keep within the spirit of the 'picking in advance and hoping for the best' element of the competition.
                Soccer EPL Top Scorer on 31/12/20 Direct replacement for missing Euro 2020

                Cricket Enfland v Pakistan test series top bowler or something Could replace T20 World Cup if that is cancelled
                Others May be events scheduled to replace the Olympic events I'll look to see what Athletics etc have planned for second half of year.

                  3 changes can be made to events, up to 5 days before the start date of that event.
                  Changes must be made by 21:59 5 days beforehand, I'll update exact deadlines for changes as we go along.
                  Changes must be made on this thread, no editing or deleting changes once posted.

                  Late June/early July change deadlines.
                  Event Start Date Deadline Date (Time 21.59)

                      July change deadlines.
                      Event Start Date Deadline Date (Time 21.59)
                      Horse – Epsom Derby 04/07/20 29/06/20
                      Baseball 2020 MLB 23/07/20 18/07/20
                      Snooker – World Championship 31/07/20 26/07/20
                      I am trying to keep on top of these start dates as much as possible, but it's obviously extra complicated this year.
                      If anyone spots one that I've missed that is starting in July then let me know.

                        Thing is, most people are not going to see this because of the lack of latest posts table that used to be on the home page.

                          That's a fair point, and something that(honestly) I've been thinking about.
                          I don't want to be individually pm'ing people with deadlines and a 'your selection is dead, maybe consider a change' message.
                          On the other hand I don't want to piss people off because they didn't spot a deadline post.
                          I think everyone (maybe not mdoug) in the comp has posted on the new site so is at least capable of finding these updates if they want.
                          But it would be nice if the posts were a lot more visible.
                          The latest posts table on the old site seemed to be the way most people accessed ipb. I'm not sure what the norm is now.

                            Is it something 6star can fix? Tbh, if he can't then maybe just a reminder post once a month on the main thread?

                                    Balls, wish I had checked this last week as for some reason presumed it would be midnight and knew epsom was coming up. No complaints here, fair to be stuck on NR. Mogul gonna win this anyways so won't lose too much.
                                    Are there new events I need to fill out yet?
                                    Go big or go homeless.

                                      I should have new events ready to go in the next 2 weeks with a cut-off point of end of July.
                                      Probably be in line with what I suggested earlier (US PGA Golf, US Open tennis, Top scorer EPL 31/12.
                                      Best I keep it relatively mainstream as these big events have the most potential to go ahead imo.
                                      I'll post here and send PMs so hopefully will catch everyone.

                                        Urggghhh, wait 4 months for an event to finish and none of or selections get placed.

                                          I've idea what will be next to finish. I don't think there's anything due to end in July, but plenty starting back up anyway.

                                            Late July change deadlines.
                                            Event Start Date Deadline Date (Time 21.59)
                                            Baseball 2020 MLB 23/07/20 18/07/20
                                            Snooker – World Championship 31/07/20 26/07/20
                                            We are now down 10 events with the postponement of the Ryder Cup. And I'm dubious about a couple more (e.g., not sure how much appetite there'll be in the country for behind closed door GAA in October which is 4 events).
                                            So I'm finalizing the replacements, hope to get it official over the weekend and bunp us up to around 35 events.
                                            As a sneak preview I'm looking at
                                            Soccer. Top EPL scorer 31/12.
                                            Golf. USPGA.
                                            Rugby. European Challenge Cup.
                                            Tennis. US Open Womens.
                                            Cricket. England v Pakistan Top England run-scorer.
                                            Dubai Rugby 7s Men.
                                            Horse Racing. Arc De Triomphe.
                                            Darts. World Cup.

                                            + anything else I can come with in the next 48 hours.

                                            All reasonably competitive and most are likely to go ahead. Will get back over the next few days.

                                              3 more events on the scrapheap since my last update.

                                              Cricket World Cup - now officially put back to 2021.
                                              Tennis Davis Cup finals also moved back a year.
                                              Poker WSOPME is taking place online, but is going to be anonymous. So I can't use it for Last Longest purposes.

                                              That brings our total to 13 lost.

                                              Replacements to follow......

                                                Here are 10 replacement events which will hopefully go some way towards getting us back to a normal competition. Overall we'll have ended up with rather more soccer (5 events) and horse-racing (4 events) than ideal, but these seem to be among the safest events to actually take place.
                                                I intended to add a couple more but am not sure yet if they will go ahead - if the Dubai Rugby 7s is confirmed for Nov/Dec I will include it, and if the Athletics Diamond League gets up-and-running as planned next month then I'll include an event in one of the October meetings. But realisitcally there comes a point where I have to stop adding events and let the competition run.

Next weekend would be ideal as it would give me the long weekend to get them into my spreadsheet, but the official cut-off point is Tuesday 4th August as the Cricket starts on the 5th (and the pga golf on the 6th) so thats the actual deadline if you want to max your chances. I'll endeavour to contact everyone just to let them know - thanking one of these posts would save me some time as I'll know you don't need to be pm'ed here or facebook etc.

                                                Crib notes/links on these event to follow....

                                                  EPL Top Scorer 31/12/20.
                                                  Salah, Mane, Kane, Aguero, Auba and Vardy have been top dogs for a few years, but youngsters like Rashford, Pulisic and Jesus could be ready to take over. Or perhaps a new signing could trump them all. A very open event.

                                                  EPL Championship 31/12/20.
                                                  Tomorrow we'll know the 2 teams who'll join Norwich as relegated from the EPL. Any of these 3 will fancy their chances of bouncing back with the parachute money. But the regular contenders like Forest, Derby and Preston will be no pushovers. The losing play-off teams will be strong.
                                                  Note. Playoff Final Monday 3rd August.

                                                  Golf. USPGA.
                                                  Presumably all the usual big guns will be in attendance.

                                                  Tennis US Open Womens.
                                                  Also very open, heres the 2019 event. Will it be Gauff or Williams for the USA or one of the Europeans again?

                                                  Cricket. England v Pakistan Highest England run scorer.
                                                  Root, Sibley, Burns and Stokes seem to have been knocking it around the park for fun against the West Indies.

                                                  Horse Racing. Arc De Triomphe.
                                                  Not one I'd normally include as its pretty impossible in January. But many more clues now having seen the Derbys and Oaks.

                                                  Horse Racing. King George VI chase.
                                                  Basically the winter Gold Cup, albeit a different direction, slightly shorter and much wetter.

                                                  Darts World Cup.
                                                  Quite a range of finalists in this team event with Wales, Ireland, Belgium and Australia coming close. If MVG could clone himself then the Netherlands would win every year, but Scotland and Engand will likely have 2 players in the Top 10.

                                                  Rugby Challenge Cup.
                                                  At the quarter final stage but still very open and could make a case for 6. Toulon and Leicester have the European pedigree but Bordeaux and Bristol may be better clubs now. Edinburgh a dark-horse.

                                                  Cycling – Giro D'Italia
                                                  I know little about this, but interestingly seems to be a different set of names at the top of the market than the TDF, so presumably these big events are specifically targetted. I don't know who these people are,

                                                    Received selections from Strewelpeter, limpwhacker, mdoug, premierstone, pokerhand & RichieM.
                                                    Have been talking to Flushdraw and will try to contact the others over the weekend.
                                                    Couple of people picked Fulham or Brentford for the Championship.
                                                    You can of course change on Tuesday deadline day if this selection wins promotion on Monday night or give me an alternate/backup selection now if you wish.

                                                    Edit. Received from shrapnel, Flushdraw and luckforsome.
                                                    Lao Lao, 6tarpool and mcnugget the only absentees at the moment.

                                                      Quick update on remaining events from the original list.
                                                      Lots of sports have got back up and running over the last few weeks.
                                                      Best case scenario we could have 37 events (including the new events) to complete in 4 and a half months, so messy as it's been up to now it could get quite hectic and exciting yet.
                                                      All your selections are in post #64 above if you've forgotten them.

                                                      Soccer. Champions League and Europa League resume this week. and finish at the end of the month.
                                                      Liverpool (5 picks) the highest profile casualty from the CL. Arsenal (premierstone), Ajax (mdoug, Lao Lao) and Salzburg (mcnugget) gone from the Europa.

                                                      Baseball. Shortened season started recently. New York Yankees were the most popular pick and are off to a flyer. 60 regular season games, then playoffs.

                                                      Basketball. Re-started last week. No real idea of the format but the asterisk beside the team names indicates that our 3 selections (Bucks, Lakers, Clippers) are all into the play-offs anyway.

                                                      GAA. No firm dates but the intentions still seems to be to finish the league and have an old school no-back-door championship from October to December. I'm dubious but we'll see.

                                                      Ice-Hockey. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_S...layoff_bracket. From what I can work out all our selections are still involved and will enter at the first round stage. Except for NY Islanders (mdoug) who have to play a prelim round first. I'm sure it makes sense somehow.

                                                      Snooker. World Championship. On-going. Ronnie and Trump safely into second round.

                                                      Rugby. 6 Nations. Date are set in October to finish this.

                                                      Cricket T20 Blast. Starts 27th August.

                                                      Darts Premier League. Resumes 25th August with 6 successive nights behind closed doors. Idea here is to get 2nd rather than 1st. Everyone except Daryl Gurney (mdoug) looks to still have a good chance.

                                                      Super League Rugby League. Resumed a few days ago. Will play 18 games then top 4 into playoffs. Wigan and St Helens our only picks with Helens a bit ropey so far.

                                                      Aussie Rules. Re-started a while ago. Richmond, St Kilda and Geelong all in the play-off spots halfway through the (I think) 17 game regular season. Collingwood (mcnugget, limpwhacker) just outside.

                                                        Still waiting on mcnugget and 6starpool.
                                                        I'm also not going to be able to put the entries I've received into the spreadsheet for a few days.

                                                        But just to keep everything above board here's the selections for the two events starting Wednesday and Thursday.

                                                            Why can't I put tables in spoiler tags without them being mangled? Sort it please 6starpool tytyty.

                                                            With England probably not batting until tomorrow afternoon, I'll give him til then to get an entry for the cricket in.
                                                            And whatever time the USPGA tees off for an entry for that event, presumably the afternoon our time as well.
                                                            If anyone knows him IRL, give him a push.

                                                            Anyway hopefully the show is back on the road now - USPGA golf next to finish on Sunday.

Doesn't fundamentally change anything as there'll still be a clear 4,2,1,1 for the points.

                                                                                                      Completed Events.

                                                                                                        Also amazed at my 50% strike rate. I honestly wonder how much would I be up or down if I put €100 on each of my selections to win so far...
                                                                                                        No beast so fierce but knows some touch of pity, but I know none, therefore am no beast.

                                                                                                                In theory I could have changed, but I've 2 other non-runners on the way in better-shaped events, so had to let the Tennis go.

                                                                                                                Anyway, I'm confident enough we can get Serena and Osaka beaten, it's still a strong field despite the absentees.

So I'll award 4,2 that way also. Current table.

I'd say Helens & Wigan will still both qualify for semi-finals anyway.
