    Hi Samos,

    I'm in again.

    Can we have the rules set before we start this time so there is no confusion like what happened last year please. As in if I forget to post sunday games but I get my afternoon picks in before those games start, should they count or not.

    I believe that they should because you can look at the time the message was sent and determine if it is valid or not.

    I don't plan on missing a week but sometimes shit happens that you can't help.

    So my suggestion is on Sunday, lets say you had a busy weekend, woke up and were like "Shit, I forgot to post my picks!!!" You woke up at 12pm and quickly got your picks for the rest of the day in before 1pm when those afternoon games start. You should get credit for those picks because the games haven't started yet. (I am speaking in Pacific time so for Eastern it would be 4pm games)

    What do you think?

    Greetings friends,

    Thanks to everyone for initiating and responding to the NFL contest that's been held here in this sub for the last 5 years.

    In an effort to expand and improve the competition, it's been relocated and renamed. I hope to see everyone from past seasons sign up and invite your friends. With, and only with your help, can we make it better than ever.

    Here's the address:

    Really? Is there any way you can NNTP that shit to this sub too? I newscan messages when I get home from work. I don't go on the web, which is probably why I'm still running a BBS.. But yeah, anyway.. I won't be able to keep up, most likely.

    And changing the name from the original 5 year long Dovebowl.. I feel.. so used! :(

    Sorry boys, I'll be riding the pine on this season..

    Not really. You have to look at the timestamps to make sure the ticket is on time anyway.

    This way you keep more people active in the league because you still have a better chance to win if you slip up.

    Oh, how about my suggestion about still being able to have games count as long as you get the picks in before the game starts. So if you miss the morning games but get the afternoon game picks in they still count. It would make it be more flexible and keep people from dropping out completely if they fall behind due to forgetting about it until the morning of.

    There were valid reasons for these changes.


    Sorry boys, I'll be riding the pine on this season..

    I'm sorry to hear that A.D. Really didn't expect that from you. Hope you'll have a change of heart. If not, it's been real partner.

    Best wishes,

    There's just no way I'd keep up with visiting a web site every week when I hardly hit the web at all as it is, unless I'm looking to purchase something, and they have pictures of it online. Otherwise that's about it. It's been fun fellas. Good luck to you all!

    Remember, if you can possibly port it here via nntp or something, by all means I'm in.

    No point to put in the 5 minutes a week it takes since you would have been middle to bottom of the pack anyway, right?

    Definitely. Seeing as though I placed like 2nd or 3rd last year, I'd be totally due for a 'bottom of the pack' this year. :)
