SO according to the rules:

"NOTE: There is a chance that a team/slot may not have any hits. If this occurs, these slots will have priority on any non-Team hits (if any are pulled)."

If we say get a cut auto of a dead president or someone from UD Black (I think there are some in there they would go between the non hit members only??

Hi - that is correct. I've seen some breaks run the extra hits this way (go to base or non-hit slots) but probably more that do not. While this may not be how the majority run it, I think it's the most fair and equitable way to spread it around. I hope that's still OK with everyone.

I can see the argument on both sides of the coin. I'm sure everyone would want dibs on a presidential auto, but if someone didn't even get a single card for a paid slot, I feel it's more "fair" to give them a first chance at it (even though it's already a pretty low probability event of hitting a non-team/player card)...kinda like running a "second chance drawing" per se.

I just finished up a Cup Hockey break where I got a base slot and there were 3-4 extra hit cards (and in the 3-4 Cup breaks I was in, there were always 3-5 extra hit cards). Some of these extra hits were big cards and already went to guys who hit nice cards in their "hit" slots. While it was nice to see everyone get great hits, I was pretty bummed to see a few slots walk out with two nice hits and I got a few base cards. I'm in another break right now (10/11 ITG Hockey) and all four of my slots are base slots. What are the odds of that!?

So again, maybe I'm a little biased, but I think it allows for spreading the upside more vs. a situation where a presidential cut auto goes to the same guy who hit a Mark Sanchez Patch Auto RC and there's some hard feelings going around.

I hope this is OK with everyone. Thanks for the question/comments Army - I'm always open to questions and suggestions...after all, these are your breaks!

Thanks,
Dan

P.S. Chris confirmed that the cases will be here on Friday, so I'm planning on a 7pm CT case break. I'm still waiting on a few payments but am hoping they come in today so we can randomize tonight. Thanks!

Hey dan, are you still wanting to do the back-to-back breaks?

Sorry for the delay - later night at work!

Sounds good to me! I sent you a PM with more details, too.

I'll plan on 7:00pm CT SHARP on Friday night...will have my Excel sheet open and ready to start dropping the team names into, etc.

I'll update the payment list now...I think we're either fully paid or might have one still outstanding (and I'm not sure they were techincally a signup because they just posted that "they were interested" - I'll try following up).

Thanks everyone!

I would run the team randomizer tonight but it looks like we are still two payments short. I sent "smkelly1" and "56LightsOut56" PM's yesterday (like the rest of you) requesting PayPal payment and will follow-up with them again right after I post thisl. I'll set a payment deadline for 6pm CT tomorrow night. Hopefully they will get this message in time and be able to participate. If not, we luckily have someone who's on our backup list for two slots - I'll see if they'll be willing to send payment over knowing I might end up refunding it fairly soon.

Either way - I'll run the randomization LIVE on UStream.tv tomorrow night at 7pm CT! Results will be posted on the first page of this thread immediately afterwards. I turn the ripe ol' age of 32 tomorrow (sigh!) so I'm hoping to run the random order quick, post and will likely be away from the computer most of the night.

Here's a link to my UStream page:

DizzyDSki Box/Case Breaks on USTREAM: .

Anyone know how I can change the name of my default page? LOL The first thing I aired was a test break of one pack of Absolute Memorabilia Football and now that shows on my "channel/showpage." I'm thinking I'll have to delete that show and start a new one at some point?

In any case, I'm hoping one or two of you can show up tomorrow to my page when I do the randomization just to assure the "officialness" of everything. Hopefully see 'ya then - if not - I'll try finding 1-2 of you online to see if you can hop over to UStream quick.

Thanks!
Dan

Lexus - if you're comfortable with sending PayPal payment now, I'd be more than happy to slot you in right away. If "smkelly1" or "56LightsOut56" were able to pay by their deadline of 6pm CT tomorrow night though, I would refund you your payment for either one or both of the slots (by refunding in PayPal, there are no fees incurred for either of us). I gave them a deadline of 6pm tomorrow night and still want to give them a fair chance to pay.

Please let me know if that would be OK with you and I'll update the list. My PayPal is: dizzydski@comcast.net - two slots would be $129.00.

Thanks,
Dan
