Not to be a pain, but can this thread be moved to the general section or is there a way for me to block it? It constantly shows unread and my OCD won’t let it sit unread.
That is a good idea, and I am jealous of your low-level OCD that allows you to ignore posts in other areas of the forum. :)

I totally understand and respect this request, but I think it merits being kept in the Suns/NBA area. It's definitely about the Suns and the NBA. Honestly I don't read it much because I am not able to spend the time to play the game, and I myself have a similar OCD about having all the posts/threads mark as "read" on my screen, so I just click this thread and skim it or immediately close the tab.

If I don’t look at another area it doesn’t show as unread. And I’m not about to go the politics folder again.

So did TNT. They’re showing HOU-SAS instead of MIA-PHI.

What does that do to the bets?! I'm guessing the rules only apply to scheduled games whether they change their minds or not?

TNT decided to change because MIA and PHI were missing so many players. Probably not the last time this season it will happen.

I don’t think the last-minute change should invalidate existing bets, but it’s nice to be able to have something at stake in the games we’re watching. So this is the rule I propose: when there’s a last-minute broadcast change like this, you can bet on the replaced game OR the replacement game (but not both). All the MIA-PHI bets today are good; nobody bet on HOU-SAS but if somebody had it would count.
