    I talked to Rod at Thursday coffee at Vigilante and this subject came up, he accidentally allowed an extra team member into the team without realizing, and doesn't know how to remove the extra member. I'm quite sure there was no malicious intent here. But, then again FS makes us all hyper-competitive and OCD, so... ...Time for a Doping Scandal!

    Stop lying again. You're trying to impress me.

    Simpler solution is to just DQ Rod's team altogether.

    Hey Alan-

    It's really like this every year. The volunteers do the best they can to set up a fair game, and the players do the best they can to live with it. Sure, things get tweaked every once in a while, but it generally only occurs when people step up and put a lot of effort into the game NEXT year.

    I, for one, am a little dissatisfied that I'm only riding half the distance that I did last year, and couldn't they seeeee that I wasn't going to contribute as much this year when they assigned me to a team??? And yet... I'm cool.

    Hakuna Matatta.

    Wait... ...there's a podium? Can we get gigantic champagne bottles too and spray them onto everyone? Maybe some podium dogs too?

    Alls you need to not get too wrapped up in this game is to get yourself on a team always plunging toward the bottom, with an honorary member who rides more than anyone else and a captain who has apparently not ridden in a couple of weeks. (Names withheld since perhaps there is some sort of health/family/work issue, so no blame implied.) No chance of a podium unless there's one for the lantern rouge.
