I don't get it you have a 100 guys that put out picks every day and I figure about 50% don't even bet them but that's not my business or do I care but you struggle to get 10 guys to have action every day without going into your pocket. I would take two entries if that was allowed.

Agreed. We need 1 more. I guess you could take 2 or we could draft with 8. Let's see where we are at on Monday

Just a suggestion and of course not to change anything. But the people who have the first three picks one of them has to win. Lets face it there's one team that will win the crown and a couple will be right beside them.

G.S, Bost, Houston and maybe Toronto. The way we play this contest here is the best differential. You list the RSW totals from any book you chose and then draft. EX: would be GS is 62.5 so if you pick GS and they get 59 wins you get -3.5 then you total the three teams and the best differential. That's real handicapping. Let's face it the two players who play G.S. and Boston I would like to bet on there teams regardless of their other two picks. Not trying to change anything just a suggestion this isn't like baseball.

Anybody hear from VANGIO?

I think all suggestions needed to come before people entered and we were ready to draft. It may have changed peoples opinions on playing or not because they all signed up based on the rules listed.

I was just looking at last year and besides the top team, all others would have been fairly equal based on draft position

I think a snake draft in rounds 1 & 2 would be good while leaving the rd 3 draft positions as is.
