Is this the new format and will it replace the "old" version of posting on THN?

In my humble opinion, it should be. Easy to keep track; plus then we can have a weekly gameday thread. Not up to me though.

I suggest Admin and Hoss speak on this issue.
Daniel Snyder has defined incompetence, failure and greed to true Washington Redskins fans over the last decade. Stay away from football operations !!!

Hey ACW:

Anybody can pick whomever in every game but almost nobody ever picks against the 'Skins. I beleive no one has ever picked against them and gone on to win this thing.

I pick against them when I think I should in money leagues but never here.

Just sayin'.

Good luck.

PS - Last year darn near ended in a tie and no tie-break was in place. Maybe we should discuss that.

OK but that is what I was told by the guy who almost tied me (for the most picks correct for the whole year) who (I thought) was running it.

Please enlighten.

Thanks.

PS - Here is why I said what I did:

Gotta admit, I was watching a stream, livin' and dyin' on every snap, and cheering wildly at the end.

No I didn't see that game. Was following the Denver, Oakland and Bengals games. If I won 1 of those we tied. I'm glad we didn't tie because there are no provisions for it. lol

Congrats again brother!

We had individual tie-breakers each week. If we had to, we could go back through each week and add up the tie-breaker point differentials to get a winner. If it was still tied? Who knows?

You know, it's funny. I ALWAYS pick against the 'Skins. That way, if they win great, if they lose, well, at least I get a point.
