Hognostications 2017

Postby DarthMonk » Fri Sep 01, 2017 12:05 pm

It's that time of year again. Are you ready for some football? Our CBS Sports Office Pool, Hognostications, is back for the 2017 season. Pool manager DarthMonk welcomes you back and is looking forward to another great season!

If you played last year then check your email for an invite.

If you did not get an invite then PM me with your email address.

Here is the league URL:

http://abtc.football.cbssports.com

I made the deadline for picks be 5 minutes BEFORE EACH GAME.

If you forget to make your picks you won't get a zero. You will get the worst score that week minus 1.

I'm in... Fair warning... I am managing a HUGE electronic health record conversion for a 3 hospital health system... first one goes up in November... I could fall off the face of the earth come November.

I'm in - thanks DM ... I'm not buying it CT :lol:
The Redskins' franchise has been a huge disappointment since 1999 and IMO it's not getting better until Dan Snyder stops interfering and making decisions about who coaches and plays here
Snyder needs to support the troops not fight them

Gave one away.

IND over RAM was an accident. Can't cheat, though.

we've all heard how critical it is to have a good QB and that a good QB on a good team will find a way to win the game ...

just not in games like last night in Denver ... Trevor Siemian rocks :roll:

IF Cousins keeps playing like he did, it'll be interesting to see how long we go before Snyder gets Gruden to play McCoy

Proposal: If Burgundy&Gold, Irn Bru, and SkinsJock don't make any picks for the first 4 weeks, they get removed. That's enough time, PLUS it would have the benefit of leaving 12 players, which is perfect for the playoffs.

I'm already playing as Jock O - so you can take SkinsJock off the roster - THANKS
