So why are you being so defensive then? My statement wasn't even referring to you in this case. :P You're fine dude

Rick, if finding replacements is a problem but if, say, 7 players require replacements, then I'd like to propose that the tournament field be cut to 28. Of course, this may mean that some players end up playing others more than twice, but this should be the least work for you and the quickest way to keep things moving.

I guess the lack of a "Makes no nevermind to me" Option means I should abstain from voting and allow those with a strong feeling one way or another to cast the votes.

I was accepted into my schools nursing program and will be starting in mid to late August. I am not sure how hectic it will be, but I "might" be willing to push this back. But think about it. There are about 35 of us? Or so, maybe less now. How many do you think are still going to be interested in 3 months. Rick would end up sending out a mass email and see how many bites he gets. I wouldn't be surprised if only half want to continue in 3 months, people online tend to be fickle... more so when they are losing. Also in 3 months is when school tends to start up, another issue there.

So yea, as others have said. Delaying the game will solve some issues, but will most likely raise many more. So I voted no.
If you can, win.
If you can't, draw.
If you stab, succeed.
