    …yeah but don’t try to point that out because Jamie will cry “But I’m only 22 and I couldn’t research well!!!” He honestly says stuff like that when you point out that he usually misses one or two matches on a card.

    This site is very…weird….

    There’s no crying or moaning about it. The simple fact of the matter is that I omit certain matches to keep the column short. Think of my reports as highlights of the events rather than full replays.
