    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.

                                          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.
