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

Quote:
Originally Posted by Yahoo
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've never played it this way, sounds very interesting. As long as everyone is ok with it, I'll keep it the way it is.
