So you think you can beat the staff... you have decided to compete in the 2010 Staff vs Members NFL Picks contest?..

Here is your thread to talk a little smack (T&C's Apply, so keep it fun), or if you some questions about the contest answered, please ask them here.

Since we have two weeks prior to the opening of the contest, I will once again, post up the last two weeks of preseason in this thread so the members who want to participate can get some practice in and any issues can be hashed out prior.


Will you summon the courage needed to take on the expert staff prognosticators?


Do you dare?

Good luck to all the members who join the contest...

Most importantly.. Please have fun!!!

Could someone PLEASE inform Zazz of this as we certainly don't want a repeat of last years "foe" disaster.





think of the children in Australia that spent last year fearing for their lives at Zazz's anger........

[target meet back warning]

I have received several hundred U2Us from members and moderators asking me if I am participating this year, saying that there's no point in them taking part should that be the case as Jack might as well hand me the trophy now. Oz was especially pushy and vociferous about me not playing and giving 'you lot' a chance to win.

I am flattered.

Perhaps that would be the right thing to do.

Perhaps not ...

Of course you should play if you want to.

If someone else wants to win, all they have to do is pick more right then anyone else.

Defend your title, damn it...

Okay ... Oz just U2Ued me begging me not to play this year.
The sentence "think of the children" was part of his pitch.

If I recall, Ozweatherman came very very close to beating you at your own game last year.

I think this is the year that Australia will beat you and the Leafs will win the Stanley cup....




but I have been known to be wrong before....a few times.....




GO LEAFS...........

Yeah right...I love competition

By the way, considering I only saw 5 games last year, including the superbowl, and considering I am in another continent...and hemisphere for that matter, I think I did pretty well. Finished 3rd overall

After careful analysis by mah NSA buddies it turns out that the U2U messages were not from Oz but from teh staff camouflaged as Oz ... it seems the prospect of another drubbing at the paws of the dog has them spooked and desperate to keep me out of the competition.

It makes me sad.

I guess I'm in.

Week 3 PreSeason Practice Results



Congratulations to this week's winner


Rising Against


Results...

WINS - Member/staff

12 - Rising Against
10 - Oz Weatherman
10 - Boognish
9 - Aggie Man

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

7 - Staff Picks


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 



So in this example, Rising Against would have won the weekly 1st place prize, and since everyone defeated the staff expert, all of the remaining participants would have won a prize for out picking the staff expert




We have one more week of preseason, so I will post up this week's schedule on Tuesday morning
