Yeah I had a strong feeling Dallas would come out with the win tonight. For the past 2 or 3 years it seems that the Giants have not started well but finish strong, not to mention everybody celebrating last years super bowl.
Didn't put a lot of points on Dallas though, either 4 or 5. I split bet tonights game, put half my unit on the spread and half on the ML (on Betonline that is.)
actually, i PM'd pmo about it yesterday before the point totals had even gone up.
this is a contest for inforoo people. jimmyroo was your second name after you rage quit with werther, and then ended up doing the same thing with the jimmyroo account. (while never owning up to the fact that you were werther all along. trying to trick people much?)
I have no problem with you jimmyroo, and I don't really want to kick you out, I do however want to keep this thing going through this year and onto the next. I didn't want to create controversy by having someone who wasn't affiliated with inforoo to win and have people become disenchanted and not want to play next time around. I stated that your reasons for deleting your account were none of my concern. I understand that your are super busy, and i respect that. Just do me a favor. Keep your account active, and just don't visit inforoo during your busy times. That way if you win, no one can complain. There is a member of this pool who was a friend of a current member, and when asked if he could join, I told him that he had to create an inforoo account. Sorry you feel attacked. That wasn't my intent.
I'm not sure what the issue really is here. If you were a member of inforoo at the time we started the pick em I would say you're a member. I know there have been contests in the past where the guidelines said you had to be a member by a certain date or have a certain number of posts. IMHO let him stay, if there are concerns set some guidelines.
Good grief, he was a member when he signed up and paid for the pool. Deleting your account does not take away from the time you are on the board. A lot of people slack off in the off season, whether you delete your account or not should not make a difference. Do we operate on a seniority system now? If you delete your account you lose it? He is back to compete in a POOL that he paid to be in. WTH is the big deal?
There is nothing to quit, no words were put in your mouth. There was a question mark at the end of that sentence. So don't put words in my mouth putting words in your mouth. Just can't believe this was an issue. Or maybe I can. If everyone is all cool, carry on and enjoy.
let him stay in, geez. like has been said before, he's one of "us" (and by "us", i mean the bonnaroo fans and purists). He's not some vegas shark picking games, and if he was on here to know about the league, all is good. picking games in the nfl is hard, and with confidence points, it's alot like betting. this is a wide open league, and this kind of controversy is really unnecessary. let's enjoy the season, and if you end up the winner, know you earned it and had a hell of a year. Go Broncos! (especially Peyton!)
I did not know Inforoo had an off-season. But I guess I know now. So when does the season start then?
Off season is generally our "less busy season" in between Roos. Over the years that window has shrunk because of all the other festivals that a lot of us attend. It is not a defined period by any means.
and glenn don't think it is super important, i guess just in the off case you end up matching exact totals with someone? i would say it is more relevant to the pick ems where you are getting one point a winning pick and you are more likely to tie someone.
