I'll do the draw at around 5pm BST today. I've just extended the voting for a few more hours in the nagsworth-kittens match as the forum was offline for most of yesterday afternoon.

Draw incoming in the next ten minutes. Meanwhile, here are the official second-round results:

Spoon of Ploff def Cerys (13-5)
Pdine def Absorb the anus burn (11-10)
ziggy starbucks def Small Man Big Horse (15-7)
madhair60 def Poisson Du Jour (13-12)
Crabwalk def Paul Calf (20-1)
hedgehog90 def wasp_f15ting (19-1)
alan nagsworth def kittens (15-7)

So that's seven winners, and Poisson Du Jour making up the numbers as a high-scoring loser.

Lost some great players in that round, but it's still a pretty stellar quarter-final line-up if you ask me.

Fair enough. I'll pm Absorb the anus burn and see if he wants to fill the spot.

Have I thrown this whole contest into disarray?

It's ticking along nicely this year. Withdrawals are inevitable, but we've only had a couple of delayed shots, which is unheard of this far into the tournament (at least it is as long as I've been paying attention). Certainly not in disarray. 

I wouldn't have assumed that you're the reason PDJ withdrew. Maybe he just can't be arsed.

Maybe this issue should come up for discussion again when the tournament comes around next year, with rules being changed before it starts if necessary, but otherwise I'd just say carry on as you were. I think more people are in favour of your shots than against them anyway.
