NFL 2018 Pick'em League!

as for this year I too am going off the assumption that it's over unless somebody takes up the reigns and Brian wants to do it.

Brian and my side bet was that if I beat him, He has to record himself singing She thinks my Tractor's sexy by Kenny chesney and we'd put it online and share it, and if I lost, I'd have to sing an ABBA song and post and share it.

at present, based on last weeks results which I counted despite the chart not being updated I'm ahead of him by 17.

with only 11 games left he's already beaten if we continued weekly and point by point but does have a chance if we adopted the postseason thing though he'd have to basically run the tables and me screw up royally to pull it off. a reason he calls it the titanic at this point. LOL

I'm prepared to call victory now, and save us both time, unless he'd like to work out a thing on the side with a similar rules and points to what we did last year, for the post season game on the off chance he pulls a rabbit from his hat. LOL I'll leave that choice to him.

will you hear me sing ABBA or him sing about his sexy tractor? stay tuned! LOL

This is how I feel about you right now HB.....

LOL he does have to shoot me now! blam! LOL

Brian and I talked about the options and both agree given the slim odds he'd win at this point to save us both the hassle and time, and declare the bet over with me the victor. he'll likely do the tractor song after the super bowl like last year when he had to do achy breaky heart. LOL

Maybe he just got too busy with the holidays and forgot.

Yep, just forgot. Sux getting old and losing what little memory I had.

Actually I forgot most weeks but got a PM from Tiberius every week. 
Week 17, no PM came. 


Was a fun year. Are the results posted? 
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yahoo does a pick 'em and I set one up for us. 
It is a little different but it's easy and they do all the work. 
Ya have to have a yahoo account or sign up for one(if you play in the fantasy league you already have a yahoo acct.)

The picks for each week of the playoffs will need to be chosen 5 minutes before each game. (you can set up an email reminder for each week)

I put in confidence points to help eliminate the tie possibility and it also makes it more fun.

They will have a season long pick 'em game for next year so, if everyone likes it I would be happy to set it up.

https://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem

I believe you can enter the group name OR the group ID#
AFFL PICK 'EM GROUP ID# 65995
PASSWORD= HITCHSLAP
Sorry short notice but maybe we can get a few entrants to test it out.

Thank you for setting that up, WHEELZ. Unfortunately I'm not into playoff picks. The seasons where it's at for me, but I've got a day to decide, so, who knows. It sounds like the Yahoo league differs significantly from AF's typical playoff league in which all the games are predicted before the start of playoffs, and later games count for more points.

Yea, there are a few different options on the set-up but I didn't see an option to do a complete bracket from the beginning. I set it up with confidence points instead. It is super easy to set up and also make picks. It will save whoever runs it alot of time each week. 

And if y'all don't like it, no big deal. 
I knew it would be hard to get everyone signed up in less than a day but figured hey, it's free and players can get exposed to it to try it out. 

I also invited some possible players from my other atheist sites.

It's free so if someone wants to jump in late, no big deal. They can still show off their pickin' skills and see if they like it for next season.

What a horrible way to lose. You make the first attempt at the field goal but the time out before the snap negates it. Then you shank the ball, but it doesn't just boink off the left upright, it comes back down and boinks off the crossbar too. If there is any position I would not want to be in football, it would be a kicker. It is one of those positions that you are only loved when you win on a kick, and remembered for your chokes.

HOLD ON NOW, just seeing video that that the ball was tipped.
