Now that is rich coming from a man who spent the latter part of last season waiting for everyone else to post their predictions so he could work out how to stay top of the league.

Gamesmanship? I'd like to call Otta to the stand in my defence.

Posted by red devil 14 August, 2013 09:31

I haven't got the time or inclination to totally disprove your slanderous accusation, suffice to say, the only strategy I used, which I had openly revealed, was to keep my predictions around the 2-1 scoreline, give or take the odd goal depending on who was playing. Occasionally I would drop in a 4-0 type scoreline, because occasionally that happens, but by and large I think statistically most results end up around 2-1, a slight advantage for the home team. Using that strategy it was totally irrelevant what other players had predicted. In the final few weeks my lead at the top was actually halved by . I suppose your suspicious mind will conclude that was deliberate, part of 'The Masterplan'.
In case you're forgetting I also won the FA Cup, a head to head format which required secret predictions. Maybe I should apologise for not revealing my Stasi trained telepathic skills beforehand.
Finally, why would I opt for an online system this season where other predictions won't be seen?

Re. Otta: that was a classic case of you feeling guilty after the event, trying to right a wrong after you admitted to using gamemanship...

I did odd things twice, but I doubt they can be called cheating, more daft experiments.

I used a 0-2 random number generator once, the results were poor.
And once because I had no time to think, I inverted maxxi's on the theory that he was so bad the opposite must be better, I think that was my worst week ever.

Ok, I apologise for saying you 'admitted' to using gamemanship, you didn't.
You discovered a flaw in the aggregate score rule for the CL game. Did you not use it to your advantage? If not, how did you actually go about making a prediction?
As for guilt, that is between you and your conscience.

I think you click on 'preferences' under your name right at the top of the page then tick 'prediction reminder' at the bottom of your 'details'
