Hognostications 2012

Talk about the AFC, NFC, the NFL Draft, College Football... anything football that has no Washington Redskin relevance.

So either it was not in place last year or Hoss (the man who ran it in 2011) was wrong ... which would make me wrong (though I was quoting "the horse's mouth" as it were).

Got any documentation? I at least have a quote from Hoss.

Oh, and stop top posting her threads! [-X

Documentation? Sure!

And stop post padding to try a get an avatar! [-X

Look, if you want an aviator you probably should own a plane. Do you? You are also likely to need a good deal of money as aviators are typically not very cheap.

Good luck!

Hey, Deadman. Any idea who wrote the code back then? Are you a computer sci dude?

I actually like that tie-break better. It rewards good predicting of Monday Night totals throughout the year. The ESPN method simply rewards a strong finish - as if later weeks mean more than early ones when Hognosticating.

I am, but I have no idea who wrote the code. If I had written it, we'd still be using it today, and I might have a championship under my belt. (I have no idea where SJ* and I stood tie-breaker-wise).

I suspect many will show in the next week. You could also PM last year's competitors.

I have not been paying much attention

are we staying with the same format

and

has anyone contacted Hoss?
It's taken years for the Redskins to become as bad as we are - there is no way that the team is going to be consistently competitive in the near future, the problems here are complex - unfortunately with Dan Snyder, it is what it is

What went wrong?

BTW - I wish we were using CBS instead of ESPN for this. Yahoo seems best for fantasy. Ironically, ESPN kinda sucks on both. Just my opinion.

Anyway, try again and tell exactly what went wrong.

that's NOT funny - what a great way to support your team = NOT - have at it :roll:

I'm realistic about the fact that the Redskins will lose some games but I would never pick against them
especially in a 'free' pool that's amongst other Redskins fans - WHY? :twisted:
