I am a bit disappointed the Scott Rule did not pass. We currently have questionable precedent between 006 Scott (2012) and 114 Tim Welke (2012) that will need to be addressed next season; I felt a statutory change would most easily do this. Oh well, the people have spoken.

Gil, is BillMueller not serving on Board of Appeals this season?

How are we still keeping the same point system? Last I saw the change was in the lead.

tmac said...

There appear to have been MAJOR voting irregularities!!

cyclone14 said... there a way to permit each person to only vote once??

Gil said...

As tmac alluded to, several ballots were discounted after the appearance of voting irregularities. We are presently satisfied with our implementation measures in correcting for these issues, though we are looking into further ways to safeguard the process.

For this reason, the above run-off ballot's results will not be publicly viewable "in real time."

Go back and look through AlbertaUmpire's decisions and lousy explanations. Not worthy of re-election.
