Maybe CCC is busy and doesn't want to encourage people to waste his time with stupid questions.

I very rarely check the 'discussion' post but I figured I would today because of the white-hot performances of the leaders. I know it's not that big of a deal, but two of the three claims here are blatantly false. The spreads are correct. I've NEVER posted a game that had already started. Not even close. Easily verified through the time of the post. I'll clean up the rotation numbers on O/Us.

CCC does a great job! Just need to point out inaccuracies there.
You are pointing out SacPac's inaccuracies.

Look below your post, the only thing wrong was the rotation #'s.



We need to take a deep breath and make sure we are double checking things before we submit posts.

Save each other some time typing, life is short.

It is graded using a computer grading system. I don't change anything that people post, I do have to take out extra fluff.

From what I'm told it takes the best answer from the post. It counts all letters/numbers. I've never heard of a problem until now.........

Where you see () at the end of the scoring, those came late, or an error that has to be graded as a loss. Not 1 person has argued an automatic loss.





Like I said before too, if you have a problem with something, I can tell you why/how a pick was graded. But man, if something was wrong other people would be barking at me like that. Other people put in $200 too, they won't stand for nonsense.

Thank you for the detailed answer. I don't have a problem with anything.

There's a player that entered picks last week and the rotation number didn't match the correct team. I asked the question Friday and was curious so I could follow along as Saturday took place. I was curious as to what would be graded, the rotation number or the team name so I could watch it.

I looked at the rules and it doesn't say so I thought I'd ask.

There was no reason other than that for me to ask the question. Now I know it's the team and all is good.

With the questions you ask it is really hard to believe you've ever done this before.

I asked if the rotation # or team name is graded and what happens if they are different because it's not stated in the rules. I'm sorry I asked the question.

It's really none of your concern.

Need to start a discussion about posting picks privately and about the last 2 weeks with games not on Saturdays.

In weeks 13 and 14, in my opinion, all games on Friday and Saturday should be included, especially thanksgiving week.

Only about 15-20 people max will be left in the last 2 weeks it seems, some great capping by the top contestants.

Posting privately the last 2 weeks with whatever games is cool with me. I just think we need to post all 7 plays together whether they are posted in the thread or privately. I think that is how we've done it in the past, it makes less work for Jack trying to get them posted as soon as possible after the deadline for ones posted privately. In the past some guys complain if the picks aren't up fast enough for everyone to see and having to cut and paste from different post would only slow the process. We certainly don't want to upset anyone.

My opinion is continuing to follow posted rules and while there isn't specifically mentioning Friday games being included, the rules do state that only Saturday, Sunday, and possibly Monday games being used.

Privately posted picks should be posted immediately after games begin. Saturday noon games shouldnt be viewed at 330pm Saturday. This is why private picks are much more difficult to maintain transparency compared to the NFL contest.

I totally agree on all accounts here, and I really appreciate all the feedback you 2 give.

Hopefully to me we do add the friday after Thanksgiving back into this, with all week #14 games as well. All these Tuesday-Friday games in weeks #1-12 are mostly nonsense, so I was glad we cut those out this season.



I have an idea about posting the picks privately, but again it will be really hard to maintain that transparency. I see a 10-11am eastern deadline next year to offset this, would help tremendously.

Yeah trying to post some games as they start and not posting others will be a task for someone to make sure not to post games the have time changes. I like the idea of an earlier cut off but maybe 1 eastern like the pros that at least gives the west coast guys until 10 am Pacific. 8 am may be a little early for the west coast guys.

CCC can you let me know if my picks are clear for the week with both entries or if I'm going to need to reenter.

My first post was for BC1 and I made another post for BC2 but posted BC1 a second time. If I need to reenter for BC2 with later games before the deadline let me know.
