I need Netherlands to win, and Sneijder to become the top goalscorer. Anything else and I'm probably 4th place. Go Oranje!

Edit: Actually, fuck that, if the Oranje wins I win no matter what. GO.

Syd, this may be poor timing, and I don't want to make you have to go back and check everyone, but I think I was shorted some points in the group stage. You've got me with 69 before the knockout rounds stated, I come up with 73. Everything since then looks to be correct.

EDIT: It looks like 3 points of the discrepency came in the the last 4 group games. You have me going from 59 to 69 during that time, but I picked all 4 games correctly with 1 perfect score.

The other point may have come from a score I picked exactly, but only got 3 points for. I think these are the games I picked perfectly:
Algeria 0 v 1 Slovenia
Ghana 1 v 1 Australia
Cameroon 1 v 2 Netherlands

Hmm, since we have so much at stake here, I went back and checked my picks -- looks like I was shorted 5 points going into the final two games.

I have 68 from the 1st round, 22 from the 2nd round (visualize me flexing my muscles), 9 from the quarterfinals, 3 from the semis (visualize me frowning) and 3 from the 3rd place match, for 115 total.

Still, let's remember what's really important here -- Zomp is doing reeeeeally badly. That's all that matters.

I just pictured Zomp excitedly checking his score, positive that he, too, must have been shorted some points...and finding out that he had been given 5 too many.

It made me giggle.

I'll audit the whole thing at the end. Suspense!

Wait.

The Golden Boot is for the player with the most goals. Tie-breaker (for FIFA) is the number of assists.

This means that Muller is the leader of the pack. If he is awarded the Golden Boot (because neither Villa nor Schneidert scores in the final), people that picked Villa, Forlan or anybody else should not be getting those 5 bonus points, of course.

People are surprised that Adam fucked this up? Really?

Zomp is doing the rope-a-dope for the Prem pick'em.

Pending Syd's recount, I think ethangl just edged me out, even with my 5 point Villa bonus.

Mueller won the Golden Boot, but we were asked for the top scorer, not the Golden Boot winner. Mueller, Villa, Sneijder, and Forlan all finished with 5.

That's why I asked about it yesterday. You even agreed that Villa should count, until you edited your post after the game.

This is my arbitrary competition and we made it clear Villa was good to go so there's 5 points there.

I have an issue in that I fly out tomorrow morning. I'm going to be unable to audit.

However I will accept peoples self audits if you're woried I ripped you off... just post your games and the points in a spoiler box.
