    UPDATE (11/1) - Due to the makeup of the pairs field at the Cup of China, Qing Pang and Jian Tong (CHN) have been excluded from the fantasy game.

    I always suck at this game but darn it, I keep trying to pick the right people anyway, LOL

    Taking out Pang/Tong is kind of smart and bizarre at the same time.

    As the commissioner of fantasy skating, I admit that omitting Pang and Tong from the game this week is a little bizarre. However, there is no one else is the field who is in their league, and the other seven entries fall neatly into three "pools." While it was not my preference to leave them out, doing so was the fairest thing to do.

    Haha, same! I make picks that seem oh so very logical at the moment, but I never seem to get very far!

    Blind faith in Tomas Verner, and lucked out picking the dance teams who finished the competition. It really stinks when you pick a skater/team that withdraws, happened to me in the past. I like that the FSU game lets you go down your list so your score is not devastated by a withdrawal.

    CoR was my best event thus far, until all three of my dance picks withdrew and I went back to my usual placement range.

    I always seem to sick at picking the right skaters.

    So far, 4 of my skaters have withdrawn mid-competition (all three dance teams this weekend + Voronov a couple weeks ago). I've fallen from top 5 overall to 200th something place. I wish the computer could just select a different pick at random when someone withdraws so that all our other picks don't go to complete waste. I applaud everyone who gets through this entire season without one of your picks withdrawing and sucking all the fun out of it for you.
