Re: I don\'t think you understand
Not sure. But I suspect something will be done before the start of the 2009 season. One option might be to include all rounds for Pro ratings with any DNF where the player actually started a round and stopped before finishing (without injury or emergency) would maybe count as an 800 rated round. Or perhaps even better, it might count as a round exactly 100 points below their rating without it. I kind of like the 100 pt idea because we would do this for a DNF during a round for any reason including injury and we wouldn't have to decide whether the sudden exit was justified or not. Those who really aren't injured would have to decide to fight for a round rating better than 100 pts below their rating or just DNF and take the 100 pt penalty.
This would only be for rounds a player actually started to play, not those where the player DQ'd later rounds without showing or starting them. Those wouldn't show up at all just like now. This might also be an interesting twist on dealing with behavior issues that result in actual DQs by applying the 100 pt penalty on each round started...
