Depends when the OOP was released?
Can't say for sure, but I know it was up when I did my predictions in t'other thread about 8 hrs 40 mins before play started.
If Josh is the only one to miss the deadline though, I'd be tempted to let predictions including Josh's stand given that:
- the thread wasn't created on time according to the regs
- he posted within 9 hours of the thread being created
- he gained no advantage from posting late
- it's not in the interests of the competition to exclude days without good reason
If others missed the deadline, I'd strike the day off entirely.
Obviously it's not my call though.
