We didn't do it last year, but i'm game this year.

My thoughts:

-It'll be primarily Bengals fans, but i don't really care who joins.
-In previous years, people have missed one week and stopped participating because they knew couldn't win. I'd like to set it so that the lowest score is dropped.
-To make things a bit more interesting, i'd prefer to do confidence picks or against the spread. Not just straight pickem.
-It'll be on Yahoo.

I'm open to suggestions though.

Rules? I just make em up as we go along. I have to win something.

No but seriously, once i get some time i'll post the info. Rules are pretty simple. Pick the games. Person with the highest score at the end of the season wins.

I like the confidence and spread ideas. Either would be good with me.

Ok, I wasn't sure if it was pick every game each week or pick 1 game you are sure of.

Oh it's every game. The way confidence picks work: you assign a number, 1-16, to every game. Use every number once. 16 to the game you're most confident in. 1 to the least confident. You get the number of points you assigned to the game if you get it right.

So:

Bengals - Browns - confidence 16
Patriots - Steelers - confidence 1

If the Bengals and Patriots won, i'd get 16 points. If the Browns and Steelers won, i'd get 1 point.

At least, that's how i understand it to work. I've never actually done of these before.

Ok. I take it we're just picking the outright winners and not including the spread?

Probably. I'm thinking that will draw more interest.

Ok. I have it set up. I can probably still change settings. Big things: we're using confidence picks, and we're picking playoff games too. So this will continue through the regular season and playoffs. You drop your lowest score, so don't fret if you miss a week.

This may be a dumb question, but what site is this through?
