Well, to be "fair", everyone would agree on some level that the later rounds are more of a craps shoot, and the earlier rounds (1 and 2) are supposed to be more of a sure thing. Looking at our record in the first rounds vs the later rounds, I can see how people would feel that "screwing up" in the earlier rounds (Price aside, lol) suggests that it's possible we just got lucky with a bunch of the craps shoot picks, making our "overall" record look better than it really should. You still have to know your stuff in the late rounds to have an educated idea on who might surprise you down the road, but still... I can see how people could reach such a conclusion.
