To try and be consistent with all contests we try for this

You must post your pick without abbreviations and with the odds posted.

On totals you must post both teams with the word over or under and odds posted.

However team nickname as PAtriots instead of New England is not a huge deal for this contest. Just be clear

This is going to be another (very short) contest for me if I keep turning in 1-4 cards.

1-4
2-3

Glass half full: I'm slowing working my way up to 5-0.
Glass half empty: I'm quickly drawing dead.
Glass empty: I just fucking Lo$t $250!

I keep forgetting to ask but once we submit our picks, can we change them as long as the games havent started yet or are they final once we submit them. For example, i pick the Thursday night game and 4 Sunday games. If we want to change any of the Sunday games even after the Thursday game is complete, is that possible or not?

guys please be careful with the team names & such in this contest

spring -- you posted a saints/bengals under sunday , I counted it because the number matched the bengals/falcons game, but u have to be carefull , also AVOID abbs, such as Bucs, Pats ..... this is a nice sized contest , don't leave it to chance please.

3-2. Let's just say I keep climbing the ladder with a 4-1 next week then 5-0. 15-10. That's. Acceptable. I think it more likely I regress to the mean with a 2-3 and 1-4.

With the leader at 14-1 right now it's a little daunting for all of us. If chicago comes through tonight i will be at 9-6 and i feel out of it already with Briefcases's ridiculous start.

It is a sick start but keep plugging away. It's a long season.

14-1 is an unsustainable pace, but is a very nice start. One weekend of 0-5, and he comes right back to the chase pack, just got to keep grinding out 3-2's with hopefully some 4-1's and a 5-0 or two sprinkled in.

Also remember 2nd should pay around 5K, 3rd 3K, which I know will cover all my contests I have entered this year plus some pocket change.

Last two years being around 50 points cashed

I thought I would jinx him by betting his picks this weekend. He really screwed me over by winning me money. I'll just keep betting his picks. The pressure will be too much at some point.

Is that the ex-cabbie professional slots player and +Ev connoisseur. Or put more simply, the seen-it-all-know-it-all-done-it-all poser.

I do not think anybody will catch Briefcase. Rest are playing for 2nd, 3rd place. Soon guys will start going opposite, hoping he goes cold. 3 or 4 game lead is hugh in this contest. Guy knows what he is doing. I am going to try make money following his plays----Hey Brief, post a little earlier. Don`t try to be cool by waiting till last minute.

WTF? I hope this is a reverse jinx attempt. Briefcase is about 10-1.

yep, he entered a few years I think then won it hitting a ridiculous total, something like 70% then never entered again, but it was just catching on and had way less entries

I did that last week. Thank goodness he posted late this week and I was at the Texans game and didn't see the picks until too late to bet them. But you are right to follow. Long term you'll make money.
