hmmm...the FSP Competition Committee has often had animated discussions as to whether an award, once declared, may be retracted or changed.

After many shouting matches, a broken chair, and a few hurt feelings we have come to this conclusion and hereby establish case law and precedent for this and all future incidences (unless we change our mind):

  • The decision of how to use the (usually) non-negative award, awarded to the winner of each week, may be changed up to TNF's kickoff.
  • A COFP, once declared, should not be changed.

Yes, at least twice.

Confirm your decision before tonight's kickoff.
