Either way no big deal, but Case #2 was only randomized twice.

I understand it's all random, and I'm OK with the Reds (x2) and Royals, but I just think it should be consistent.
Agreed. It looks like case 1 was done once and case 2 twice and of course case 3 three times. According to the op it should all be randomed 3 times??

Case 1 Lists should be randomized twice more and Case 2 another time. It's only fair.

HAHA if these people got dbacks 3 times i guarantee they wouldnt be lobbying for a redo. i dont care either way but the way i look at it. the random lists have been posted by an outside party and they should be kept. it get slippery if you start randomizing again and switching all the lists

ok i painstakingly copied and pasted each individual team to each participant in each list.. your teams can be found by your name in each list on the original post

also as far as the random is concerned.. i pm'd the mod about it but he had already signed off.... but as far as i know.. once the randoms are done they are done.. if he were to random again it would only make things worse... i left instructions on what needed to e randomed and he pulled the lists off the OP...

Thanks for sending them a message. It will make people mad either way. I had 2 crappy teams in the first 2 cases, so im sure you might have more people wanting it done correctly than not.
Just my 2 cents..

The third case is not in question since that one appears to be correct. I have usa in 3 which im happy with, but if it gets redone across the board I am fine with that too.

I'm fine with either way, just salty that my teams in case 1 and 2 are junk. no one would be complaining if they had the orioles in all 3 cases but I mean there is an arguement on both sides. Either way people are going to be unhappy but it's not like there was any unfair disadvantage in the randoms. Let's just see what the mods say.

i might also ad this.. even if people feel the random was messed up even if someone were to put a list into random.org and randomize anything the algorythm multiplys possibilities by millions of times before it stops on a figure... the math involved with random.org is staggering.. while in your mind your only complaining because it didnt go your way.. which is the nature of the beast.. sometimes it just happens..

when i bought into houdinis insanity IV i bought 7 spots.. when the random came out my first pick started at 159... could you imagine how i felt.. i sure could of used a redo... but again... its the nature of this hobby..

technically, i think it is correct...op says...the participant list will be randomed 3 times...it was...it doesn't say it will be randomed 3 times each case...doesn;t make any mention of the team list in the op or how many times it will be randomed...of course op was under the same team for all 3 cases rule...At least that's how I read it...

but I'm cool with whatever is decided...random is random, i like to gamble myself...

The particpant list will be randomed 3 times and each participant will recieve one team per case....

I took it as each of the 3 cases would be different and it doesnt say each one of the cases would be randomized 3 times and really we are talking about Randoming the random.

No, let's talk about your Angels in case 3...any chance you grew up with Trevor Story and gotta have the Rockies?

Just so there's no additional confusion.

Are the AFLAC's and relics going to their respective teams?

The first page still states they are going to be randomed for hitless teams.

there was alot of votes for them going to there respective teams. i think it was 11 for and 2 against... some people had boughten two spots so i uess techinically they get two votes.. so that would increase the fors anyways.. so with that beings said.. yes, i believe they are going towards their respective teams...

I think as the person who is in charge you should just say how it is and we move on. I dont know how many people are complaing about a random random, but it seems like its the vast minority and the voting went the way of aflacs to their teams. Make a decison and lets move on.

to me random is random. you can do can randomize this thing over and over again and there will always be someone who is unhappy with the results... basically this is like gambling, so sometimes you win but most times you lose...
