We can't start picking quite yet, but it's a good time to get this up and running again and add new members is anyone wants in.

http://strib.football.cbssports.com/

The name of the pool is:

Pick, Weigh and Gloat

and the password is: winners

Jim F. is the co-administrator

Good luck!

If you are not in the pool (members from last year are automatically in again) just send me a PM with your e-mail address and I can send you a fresh invitation from the site.

Due to a plea from last year, picks can now be made up to five minutes before the start of the first game of the week. It had previously been one hour before. Don't forget that in your options (settings, whatever) you can request a reminder e-mail a day or two before.

Both the Survival Pool and the Picks Pool are accepting picks now. Remember that the first game of the season is next Thursday (Packers v. Seattle) so don't wait too long to get your picks in. A good tip is to do your picks NOW, really early, because you know you can edit them up until the last minute.

Good luck everyone!

Hi Lynn,

It says I need an invite.


I sent you a PM asking for your e-mail address so I can have the site send you one.

For anyone else wanting to get added to the roster, send me your e-mail address via PM and I'll be sure to send the invitation.

I have picked and weighed. If past performance is an indicator of future results I will not be doing any gloating.

I can relate KG. I seem to always start out looking pretty brilliant*, but a few weeks into the season my standing starts to drop and I spend the rest of the season fighting for the basement spot. I'm looking for a change in my own personal success at the same time that our Vikings climb from worst to first and have a string of memorable seasons and build a dynasty. My wishes are rarely modest.


*compared to people who have never watched a football game in their lives

Conspiracy!

Both Lynn and Jim went offline after I sent them a pm looking to get back into this this year.

May your wishes be granted. However there can be only one in the end.

I stopped playing this because I was always getting it handed to me.

So I went down to the minors (my wife's office pool picking for her) and I feel I am ready for the big leagues again!

It's true - I was offline most of the afternoon - but hopefully got your invitation out to you in time. You have just over a half hour to get picks in, but if you miss the deadline you can still pick the remaining games for the weekend and just take the hit on the first game with a loss and -16 points.

Doh! The game doesn't start until 7:30, so you actually have a full hour.

I don't know why that is, but I expect it will correct itself.

{Edit: I was referring to your earlier comment that you didn't see your name at all}

I am slightly annoyed that I can't change any of my picks in the games that are still to come. I wanted to change my points on Carolina beating Tampa Bay from 5 down to 2.

That's just the way the site fixes it. The only option I have as commish is to set the time before the first game and I set it at the shortest time of five minutes before kick off.

It's all good Lynn. I wanted to congratulate Art for winning the first week but then I saw he picked against the Vikings. That is just wrong. His big pick was having miami beat NE.

4th place with 93 points - not bad considering I got 3 of my top 5 weighted games wrong.

One week and it all went to shit, Lynn!

Up and down week picking that's for sure. I spent some time right near the bottom. Somehow, even missing on my big weights I managed to keep the top guys in sight.

Thanks for rubbing it in.

Maybe this year my fortunes will be reversed from my norm. I'm starting out wretchedly but by the end you guys will all be in my rear view mirror.

Speaking of up and down picking I pulled in a rare first place finish this week. That should about do it for my upward thrust. Freefall starts on Thursday.
