Will these carry over each week and see who comes out on top at the end of the season? Or just on a week by week basis? Some of us may miss a week here and there, due to unforeseen circumstances. So we could base it on winning percentages, only applicable if a member can report on at least eight weeks of the season. That number could vary of course. In a sixteen week season, even ten weeks could be a good number.

Thoughts?

Congrats to those who broke even this week. Wasn't an easy task.

I'm sure we can come up with something... If the people participating would like that, keeping track shouldn't be too hard.

I like the idea of the winner being based on winning percentage, with a 12 week minimum of participation.

That gives us all 5 weeks to miss...(or opt out, right?)...that seems like plenty.

Of course, anybody can jump in and make picks week to week...you'll just need 12 under your belt to claim the prize of GRAND CHAMPION and reap all the treasure and respect such a title promises.

Yes... We have some "new" members in the RL pool who are quite disheartened and a couple have complained that they are being made to "look bad."

WHAT? I'm leading in one heads up pool and behind by one in another and NO ONE looked worse than I did doing the spread in week 1. Suck it up and shake it off and get back in there guys and dolls. With the spread you can go from worst to first in a week.

I man... You may want to read my post again... I was referring to the "RL" pool (where the idea of this thread comes from) and some of the new people who have joined us.

I can't imagine where their $hame is coming from.

Whoops. Missed that. It can't be worse than last year when NFL translated to No Figure League. Bengals/Browns excepted. Who would have thunk that?

12 weeks seems fair (in real life it's all 17, but hey, this is BTS)...

But if someone has 13 weeks (or more) and the same average they would win.

After all, this is for entertainment purposes only.

Come on now Mirthful...surely we can set up a little point prize package for the winner.

Put a little something on the line?

How about we all buy in for 5,000 points...winner take all.

Is this possible? Mmmmm??

I'm sure any outstanding week will be rewarded.


But I can't go dipping into the ATS Reserve for points for our little office pool here, my poo stained fingers would leave unmistakable traces and I'd end up as O.J.'s cell mate (he'd be my beeyatch)... He O.J., how about slicing up some bologna for the big dawg over here (you have to give him something he's used to doing
).
