I have had a few more lists in, to be fair. I will start the competition tomorrow night, now. I can't delay this forever.

Perhaps we should give the stragglers the byes. They might be ready for Round 2 then :evil: .

Yes, impose some sort of penalty for lateness. That'll learn 'em.

Fuck that. Anybody who submits a late list is removed from the competition.

To be fair though, everyone has had ages to submit a list and it's well know that the competition starts in mid-Jan to early Feb.

i was late with mine and although i'm absolutely certain that the competition will not be poorer if i'll be excluded on the grounds of tardiness i'd say a couple of things - firstly, it seemed like there were many many weeks during which the Cup places were being filled, and then suddenly quite a tight deadline for submissions. I was lulled into security by the fact that i assumed that any deadline would be weeks away since the Cup has only just been filled. And there are many people like myself who are not at all regular participants and for whom it is not "well known" that the competition always apparently starts around this time. No excuses - my bad, my fault - just explanations. Won't happen again. :oops:

They have to insert a U2 song onto their list.

that would be a decent handicap and test of their musical knowledge - there are a handful of bearable ones.

That might be a good punishment actually: pick one track at random from any late entries, and replace it with some utter bilge.

I'm pretty sure that constitutes cruel and unusual punishment.
We don't want any legal trouble, after all.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I've had some more lists in, and frankly I think we should start now. Oh, and no-one's going to get thrown out for tardiness; there are enough byes as it is, and I don't want to create more. So, give me an hour or so, and you should see the first ties arriving.

I too am unemployed and this is the first year i've entered. I was expecting perhaps 1 match of ten songs vs ten a day, allowing me with my lack of knowledge of some of the more obscure sixties stuff to perhaps programme a playlist and decide in a spirit of honour and fairness towards all.
But it seems i've been misled and i'm judging all you obscurantists on 1 and a half tracks selected on the basis of funniest song title.
Anyone could join in so I discarded my jeans
