    ahhteeth, Pig Nash, naturallystoned, and pollardfreek all have 30 MINUTES LEFT to make their picks for the first group of games. If you miss those, you can still make the picks for the afternoon games and games after.

    Good luck!

    I keep picking differently than I do in my office pool and doing worse than I do there. I forgot to make my week 2 picks -- is there a way to give people points in here? In my office pool if a person misses a week they are automatically given the lowest score for anyone from that week. Anyway for me to get that?

    Btw, I have 33 in my office pool, so if I had picked the same here as I did there, I'd be winning.

    I think I forgot to mention I'd set up a system for missing weeks earlier. Oops.

    I have the game set up to drop the lowest two weeks by each poster during the year. So if you miss a week (or two) you won't be penalized in the overall standings at the end of the year. Everyone is going to have a bad week or more during the season anyway.

    This is a perfect time to remind everyone to go right ahead and make your picks. I'll send out PMs and post another reminder later in the week.

    I say, screw 'em. If you don't remember to make your picks, then tough.

    If you were actually playing the game for a living, and forgot to show up one day for a game, would you have to accept the consequences?

    Yes.

    Hehe. I like being difficult.

    True, I was thinking about this earlier and I think dropping two is too much. So, I'm going to make a revision. I'm only going to eliminate one week at the end of year. Taking off two makes it too easy for people to catch up.

    Sorry for the indecision on my part.

    Keep up the smack guys. You'll all be eating my dust soon enough. :P

    As of 11:15pm Saturday night, naturallystoned and ahhteeth have yet to make your picks. Please do so within the next twelve hours.

    Have a good one, and...

    I still don't like the idea of dropping the lowest week. This contest is over the entire season. We're not in Kindergarten anymore, kids, if you forgot to make your picks one week, too bad...

    [quote user=btowncolt uid=35 fid=16 tid= rid=19]I agree with Styder. I had a crappy week this week, but it should count against me. We shouldn't drop any weeks, especially since it was a rule we were unaware of before the season started.[/quote]

    Yeah, that was my fault for forgetting to include that portion of the rules in the game info at the beginning. It was always my intention to remove at least one score at the end of the year, but we have dissention. I'm more than willing to include all the games if that's what the majority wants. Frankly, I lean toward including every week as well. I just figured everyone wouldn't mind a week to toss out at the end of the year. I'm annoyed, but I'll deal.

    I like democracies. Picks people vote on what you want (all weeks/remove one week) in this thread. We'll include all of the weeks of the year if a majority of the people responding vote to keep all weeks. You have ten days (until midnight on October 14th) to vote. After the vote, the game stays as chosen.

    Well since I forgot to make my picks for the second week, I'd obviously like to have that one week dropped, but I can understand everyone wanting to include every week. If you have to include them all, that's fine. I just won't have any chance of winning for the season.

    Week Four was won by Miller_time04. He can only hope his luck doesn't run out in '05. Congrats!

    Week Four Results (out of 14):

    1. Miller_time04 10
    2. Zesty 9
    3. obnoxiousmodesty 8
    3. NumberSeven 8
    3. dipperdunk 8
    3. wickedstick 8
    3. Pig Nash 8
    8. pollardfreek 7
    8. btowncolt 7
    8. Shade 7
    11. Styder 6
    12. MSA2CF 5
    12. naturallystoned 5 (late entry)
    12. PacersRule04 5
    15. ahhteeth 0 (no entry)

    Past weekly winners:

    Week One: dipperdunk
    Week Two: ahhteeth & Stryder
    Week Three: PacersRule04

    The overall group lead now finds four people tied for first with 37 correct picks thus far. That means the leaders of this group pick correctly nearly 62% of the time. The overall leader at Yahoo! has 49 (82%). I personally hope I can improve on my percentage as the season progresses.

    Overall Results (out of 60):

    1. Miller_time04 37
    1. NumberSeven 37
    1. Stryder 37
    1. obnoxiousmodesty 37
    5. btowncolt 36
    5. dipperdunk 36
    7. wickedstick 34
    7. Shade 34
    9. PacersRule04 28
    10. Zesty 27
    11. naturallystoned 25
    12. Pig Nash 24
    13. ahhteeth 21
    13. pollardfreek 21

    Wow, I have 42 right in my work pool. Not doing too bad here considering I have a 0 for one week. Maybe I can catch up.
