If we want to play one or both of the later thanksgiving games, do we still need to post before the Lions game starts?

It seemsto me that all games should be posted before the first game starts on game day (just like for the Sunday games).

I had no picks last week because I forgot the time was moved up 5 minutes. My picks were entered before the games began but I had to accept the mistake/result.
If all games need to be in 5 minutes before start of games on game day, the rule should apply for every game day. All of this really should have been very clear up front (IMO).

Wait, I just made a play for my pick 5 ten minutes before the game started? Is my bet counting? I don't see any rules on making all picks before first game today

You would think they would still count as plays are still posted before kickoff and obviously before 12:55 est Sunday deadline

Agree with this. Plays should be posted before 1st game started and everything posted after should be counted as losses like they were posted after 12:55. Most of me saying that is being facetious because of how many people attacked me week 1 when I posted and it came up on the site as 12:56 when I hit submit at 12:55 on my phone.

Honestly I donít really care there were no specific rules posted but how the nfl contest is run you canít post anything after the start of the 1st game, and if it is itís usually counted as a loss so that should prob apply here. Seattle and I both asked in the discussion thread so I just made the decision to get all plays in before 12:30.

Seattle Irish, was this posted somewhere? I must have missed that rule.
I wasn't sure so I took a look at the rule page

"Thursday night games still may be played. We will post a line on Thursday. Players will be permitted to play the Thursday night game alone, without posting rest of the card."


- Players will be permitted to play the Thursday Night game alone

This had me thinking each game could be played individually. Then it says the deadline is still 12:55 est on Sunday.

Let me know either way, so I know where I stand for Sunday.

I guess I can see what you are trying to say but the deadline is 12:55 est on Sunday not Thursday. The reason people attacked you was because it was in fact breaking the rule even if it was in a very minor way.

On Sundays you can't post after the start of the 1st game because it is breaking the 12:55 est rule.

This year being able to play the Thursday game solo and then being able to add the rest of your picks for Sunday 3 days later on that Sunday then what exactly is the difference of playing today's games and posting the plays at different times? If you are posting before the 12:55 est Sunday rule and posting the plays before kickoff, I don't see how it goes against any rule I see anywhere on the site.

This year you can post after the first game as the first game is technically on Thursday and this year the rule for that changes, as you can post your final card as long as it's before 12:55 on Sunday.

How are there no specific rules posted?

Rules clearly say you can't post picks later than 1255 on Sunday, but can play Thursday game separately, as long as you post before kick-off.

If you wanted to play, lets's say, only NYG/WSH game, you're allowed to post pick before kick-off, because it's still Thursday game...

generally speaking, you have to post all plays together, and before sunday games kick off

this year the rule was added that you could play Thursdays game without posting the rest of the card

thanksgiving wasnt apparently acconted for in the rules, so I guarantee there will be a new rule next year thats mroe explicit

Jack will rule and decide, but I can almost guarantee that since there wssnt a rule explicit for todays circumstance of 3 games that at the very least all your games had to be posted at the same time for todays plays

so for example someone may have not posted the first game but if they played the second they had to post the third if they were playing at that time too

I think I'm going to tie a string on my finger for a reminder of the 12:55 deadline. It's one thing when guys buried in the standings are forgetting, but top 3-5????

Wow!
