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 for over a decade and a half. 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.
