Enough people picked him towards the end of the cutoff time where it tipped the scales, so he was over the cap for "Underdog" with 21% of the picks.

This reminds me of a point I've been meaning to make about the My Fight Companion feature.

I always print out my fight comp. after the picks have locked, but because I'm a retard, I usually forget which fight is the hot bout. It would be sweet if that could be included on the companion. Also, noting the underdogs on the companion would be helpful, as I like to score the night live, and sometimes I am 2 pts off here and there because, as I said, I'm a retard and can't remember simple stuff like that.

The reason the hot bout and underdogs aren't included in the fight companion is because they can change at any time, like with Boetsch. All the other information is pretty well locked in. I just mark it down in pen before the event.

I understand that the hot bout and underdogs can change from minute to minute, but once the picks are locked in, why couldn't that info be included in the companion? From that point on, no more changes are permitted.

And if you marked down in pen and then things change at the last minute before the cut-off time , (Boetsch) then what? Whatever you just marked down is now invalid. Unless we are sitting at our computer counting down the seconds before the cutoff, there is really no way to tell which bout is the hot bout, and which fighters are underdogs. Including this info on the fight companion is an easy fix to that.

Svartorm, you da man for taking care of this so quickly. If I knew that it would be taken seriously, I would have mentioned it long ago.
