If an incorrect selection is made (or the game ends in a tie), that user will be Eliminated.


Still a **** way to lose, but its perfectly legal. :evil:

The rules are pretty clear, but it looks like the system isn't reporting the correct results.

Heh, thanks. There were some close picks all year. And looking at the weeks ahead, it starts getting really tough. I''ll be surprised if I can make it through the whole year.

Things are still close at the top of the Pick'em league. Only 5 points separates the top 10. And of the rest, the bottom 6 out 8 all forgot to set picks in at least one week, otherwise they'd probably still be in it.

Big ups to Kevin for kicking azz and taking names.
Props to Ian as well.........first tie in 6 years in the NFL, and you got caught up in it.

At least you can say no team you picked this year LOST, which is better then nuthin.

Job well done you two.

It's tough to get excited about an NFL game on a Thursday night on a premium cable channel that most people can't get.

I'm fine with it locking me out of last nights game, give me the L that's cool. By why the hell does it lock out the whole week? That's BS.

^ i agree. I remembered on Friday last week when I got locked out, I coiuld have easily put in picks fo rthe rest of the games.

Hell on Friday you're still finding out if certain people are playing/out on Sunday.

I poked around the settings for the league and found an option to change the deadline to 5 minutes before each game. That's now active and you guys can set your picks for the rest of the games. Sorry I didn't see that option earlier in the year. We'll definitely have to set it next season.

Awesome. Live and learn, Kevin - at least the option EXISTS and we'll get it for the remainder.

Isn't there always a 1.0 bug that needs worked out? :p

We could also change the scoring to drop the lowest scoring week. That would 'fix' those that missed an earlier week. Won't help Corrado though. :lol:

i got no complaints about that for this year, but if it's next year and you have to pick up to 5 minutes before gametime, that's your problem. :p

That's not fair to the leader at this point in time.
Example.
Dartboard leads with 106
His lowest week is 9
Takes him to 97
I'm at 102
My lowest is 7
Takes me to 95
I go from down 4 to down 2 with the flick of a switch.
