Bye weeks start this week.

-Good Luck!




Update: WED Sept 20th


-Reminder: Thanks to the Players who send in their picks by Friday evening. I’m still getting some picks on Saturdays and even Sunday. To be fair to everyone, please have your picks in by Friday night. Starting this week, if the picks are not in, I will have to give a -500 point penalty if not in by Friday and -1000 if not in by Sunday. I don’t want to so just get the picks in!


-Too many people drank the Cleveland Kool-Aid and lost some points. Otherwise, a good week for a lot of players!

-James has “bought back in” after blowing all 20,000 points last week! He gets 10,000 points. Players who go below 10,000 points can buy back in before Week 4. Cost is $75 for 10,000 points


-Good Luck!



Updated WED Sept 13

- WELL. That was a shitty week 1 for some players!


-The good news is that we have the “Buy Back In” rule that is new this year. If you drop to 10,000 or less points, you can buy another pool. Cost is $75 and you get 10,000 points instead of 20,000. It’s the cost of failure!


-Week 1 results are updated and Week 2 lines are uploaded.


-Note: I will be at Slick Willies on Wednesday’s this year. It’s just more convenient and closer to home.


-We had a few people drop out this year so the payouts will be a little less but so will the competition. Good luck to everyone!




Updated SUN Sept 10


- Player picks are updated. We have a few less players than in the past this year. A few who said they are playing haven’t sent in their picks yet.


-If anyone still wants to get in, they can up until game time. If 1pm games already started, you still have time to play as long as you pick the later or Monday games.


Good luck and thanks for playing!
