    My excuse is: I don't understand gambling and point spreads. Either that, or you are cheating!

    btw, Beeracuda: thanks for all the hard work that went into the scorekeeping.
    In a 2003 BBC poll that asked Brits to name the "Greatest American Ever", Mr. T came in fourth, behind ML King (3rd), Abe Lincoln (2nd) and Homer Simpson (1st).

    T, you should've used the "too much Ouzo when I made my picks" excuse!! At least that excuse would be believable!

    My pleasure keeping this going. The only pain in the ass was catching up the first 4 weeks. Updating once a week is a piece of cake!

    Hey Beeracuda, how do you get a tie ?
    I only play one other pickem pool and never have seen a tie. Is it when you, and another player end up with the same result with the same picks ?

    Ibravenfan... no it's when your pick neither covers nor falls short of the spread.

    For example, in your picks for Week 5, you picked New England -9 against the Jets. So the Pats were already down 9 points at the start of the game (or the Jets were up by 9, depending on your point of view) Actual final score of the game was New England 30-21, which when counting the point spread of New England -9 was actually 21-21 (or 30-30 if you look at it as Jets +9). So it gets recorded in this contest as a tie. In the end, a tie is actually more like a loss, since the standings are determined by Winning Percentage only.

    *** MODS - Can you STICKY this thread? ***

    The standings will automatically update each week, so the link will not change.

    Thanks!

    Hey Beeerracuda

    I guess there's no way to transfer my record from another Pick 5 that seems to have stalled to this contest? My record would be 31-13-1

    Sorry Pretzel, just can't do it. Just wouldn't be fair to the others in this particular contest. Too bad though, because 31-13-1 is a kickass record!

    Thanks! I didn't realize it until I saw your post. Hopefully I don't plunge back down the list with the 9 picks I entered for this week.

    No problem, Kyle. And I know all about plunging. After spending the first 1/3 of the season at or near the top, I've been plunging down the standings ever since.
