I know that but it did not deserve to win anything but daily 5th that is what i am saying.
I think he meant that while it won Daily Feature and Weekly 2nd, he believes that it didn't deserve to win anything above Daily 5th.
For the record, while I really liked it, I do think that the Phillips name played a large part in the high score and praise that it received.
