Cool, Thanks for signing up! I have set the league up to use confidence points....

Confidence Points are used to give a different weight to each game in a given week. You'll assign a point value (from 1 to 15 if there are 15 games, 1 to 14 if there are 14 games, etc.) to each game based on how strongly you feel about the accuracy of your selection. If your selection is correct, you'll receive points equal to the confidence-point value you associated with that game.

So, if you pick Pittsburgh to beat Dallas and assign the game a confidence point value of 15, you'd get 15 points for a correct pick, but no points if Dallas wins. You don't lose points for an incorrect selection.

Each week's points will be tallied, and the player finishing with the highest total at the end of the year will be the winner of the group.

Each confidence point value may be used only once per week. So, during a 15-game week, after you have assigned 15 points to a game, your next highest available value is 14 points.


So do y'all want to keep the confidence points?

I've played it both ways and I'm fine either way.

It takes a lot more time and consideration with the confidence points. And when you hit all the no-confidence picks and blow the big ones, it can be frustrating. :)

I'd be happy to do it but have never played this at all. Until baseball season is up I'm knee deep in following the Astros (it's a Showtime thing) and will do my best keep up until then, at which time I can concentrate on it a little better. If I sign in I'll be there until they fit me for a box. I always play to the end if I sign.

If that's cool with you guys I'm in, but will have to join this afternoon as I'm walking out the door right now.

Would I be the only rookie?? Does the site explain things from the ground up??

Cool! It's pretty easy, you pick the teams that you think will win...for the games you are most confident in the winner you give confidence points. If there are 16 games you give 16 points in the game you are most confident that team will win and if you win you are awarded 16 points. The the next game you will put 15 points in until the last game you get to 1 point. You can look at points sort of like money. Once you sign up and look how it is layed out, it might give you a better idea of how to play.

I can add more if I have to, so if you sign in later that would be cool.

It's not a fantasy football league, so there will be no draft. You try to pick the winners in all NFL games played during that particular week.


Thanks for signing up and looks like we are filled up at 25! I can add 5 extra spots if I need to but the deadline is Tuesday.

Confidence Points are used to give a different weight to each game in a given week. You'll assign a point value (from 1 to 15 if there are 15 games, 1 to 14 if there are 14 games, etc.) to each game based on how strongly you feel about the accuracy of your selection. If your selection is correct, you'll receive points equal to the confidence-point value you associated with that game.

So, if you pick Pittsburgh to beat Dallas and assign the game a confidence point value of 15, you'd get 15 points for a correct pick, but no points if Dallas wins. You don't lose points for an incorrect selection.

Each week's points will be tallied, and the player finishing with the highest total at the end of the year will be the winner of the group.

Each confidence point value may be used only once per week. So, during a 15-game week, after you have assigned 15 points to a game, your next highest available value is 14 points.

We have 3 spots left to make it to 30.:cool:

Alexismylove is a very fiesty 17 yr old girl who thinks shes going to kick all of our behinds. Thats her football game pickin' name.

Her strategy is to pick Eli & Peyton every week and guess on the others. She does pretty good considering all she knows is "the Manning boys are hot and Tom Brady and David Carr are ugly."

Alex refers to the singer of some band. Atreyu (sp?) is who I think he is from.

This week is not going to be very fair to a lot of people in Houston who don't have juice for their computer. If I'm reading the sheet correctly there are 5 people who haven't picked yet (actually a better turn out that I thought there would be).

TexanSam, The Wonderlics, Irish Texans, Keye Sux, and Texan Mike have not picked. I started this post not realizing there were only 5 who haven't picked, I will leave the post in hopes they see this and can pick.

And it doesn't make it any better that Audrey has been doing so well.

Now that is a sexist remark if I ever heard one!!! j/k

And I would like to point out that there are at least 4 females ahead of you.

It has nothing to do with sex. It has to do with being married to her. The other 4 women ahead of me aren't rubbing my nose in the fact that they're kicking my ass.

LOL, sorry, I didn't know of the connection. Good for her, if you like, I will rub your nose in it too. Although, I am not very far ahead of you and should really keep quiet. :cool:

Don't forget Thursday Night Football folks. I keep forgetting and just posted a reminder for myself as much as anybody. Why don't I make my pick now? I NEVER pick before gameday, baaaaad things happen then I do that.

I assume we can pick the Thursday game and leave the others alone until Sunday? Just wondering if that might have been where some of the problems have come from.

I hope I pick one right this week, my point total is triple 6.

OK. Philly and Cincy tied. I could not find an explanation that covered what happens.

...the system that ll be used to break the tie: closest to the total points for monday night s game. closest to the home team points......

Anybody know to clarify? I can't quite understand that. :homer: idonno:

Damn it Chris I wanted to get to this thread this morning and tell you congrats but I hadn't had coffee yet and the rest is history..

Nice job, my man! :respect: :perfect10:

I did the picks with my wife this year so I'll take fifth and be happy. :smiliedance: Next year she's playing but playing on her own...lol.

Somebody rep the Champeeen, I can't right now.

No problem. Seeing the future outcome of games is tougher than having a fantasy team, IMO. At least with a fantasy team you call your own shots to improve the outcome.

More than anything this is a bump post. Show the Champ some love folks, this year was a tough year to call. :foottap:

I know its for no trophy but that one week my picks got kicked off cost me a top 5 finish.

Where's a thumb sucking avatar?

I finished 6th in the houston area in the Chron's pick 'em out of 306 and 254 out of 18,684 nationally. I know...no medal to win there either but hopefully I get lucky and win that tv...lol

College picks with the Chron had me 6 out of 252 local and 92 of 12,022 nationally.

I know...woo hoo...here's yer sign.

This one of the best fantasy formats I played in this year. I really enjoyed it, guys and gals. Wish I could have won, but hey, good times nonetheless.

Next year, more smack talk. :) :bat: :voodoo:

Spec, thanks for the gentles nudges now and again, to remind me about Thursday games. Between work, wife, and a very mobile and agile almost-2-year-old, I've hand my hands full! :)

Congratulations, Diehard!

I finished strong but I started off really bad. I ended up sixth. Unfortunately, my wife finished third and I'll be hearing about that for at least the next year.



Probably longer.

I think you can join still, you just lose out on any points for games played. So really your only out one point.
