View Full Version : 4th Annual Draft Countdown Pick 'Em


P-L
09-01-2008, 09:00 AM
This year the Pick 'Em will be done on Yahoo! Fantasy Sports. I'm sorry, but I just don't have the time this year to calculate everyone's picks each week. It was pretty difficult for me last year and this year I have an increased school schedule. Sorry to all of those who don't have Yahoo! accounts. There is a limit of 50 people allowed (that is the max) and it will be first come first serve. I know this thread should be in the Fantasy section, but since there is so much interest I am putting it here for now. I've already received multiple PM's from people asking about this. No "upset" picks this year and it will be just straight picking who you think will win the game. As always, winners will receive a custom title if they wish. This year's defending champion is The Unseen. Good luck everyone.

Even Yahoo knows you're not going to repeat.

But seriously, I count only 42 joined, you should try again.

Here's what I suggest: we can start a second Yahoo pick 'em league, which I, StripedWalrus, and whoever else can join. Then, we can take the results from both leagues and combine them according to win order, posting them here weekly. I can do this part, since P-L didn't want to hassle with it anyways. All I'd need would be the weekly copied order from the first league since I wouldn't have access to it.

Geo
09-02-2008, 12:50 AM
You should take my spot, man. We can't have the reigning champ not defend his crown.

Oh come now. Everyone that has signed up should be able to play. I figure my plan allows me and others to do so, too.

Yeah, I figured if this one filled up, we could just start another one.

I'm required to take up one spot, so I'll name my pickset "void" and never update it.

If this group fills up, I'll relinquish my spot in the first league to make room.

10-4 so far.. also came pretty close on the Steelers/Browns score, I predicted 13-7 and it was 10-6, so that's cool.. also predicted that the Packers would score the most.. and I came close, predicting that the Chiefs would score the least. Pretty good week for me so far.
