    I've talked it over with my future self, and I told myself the results of every game this year. This means that I will in fact win this contest and probably make a few billion in Vegas as well. Go ahead and send me the Pro Bowl tickets. Don't bother sending the parking pass, I should have my own private jet by then.

    Thanks for the contests....The Eliminator contest sounds like what most call a Suicide Football pool....you have to pick a different team to win each week....the furthest I have gone is to Week 11.

    Sorry, I didn't know that when I created the games. I will choose a different site next year.

    You might create a account just to use for thephins.com contests fudging your birthday by a few years. You would not be eligible for any of ESPN's prizes but you could still win our prizes.

    I see for the eliminator you can make all 17 weeks worth of picks at once. Do you have to do this, or can you go week by week?

    You can do it week by week. :) Who knows how well teams will be playing by the end of the year and if they are even playing for anything.

    For the gridiron challenge, do you have to set your team every week?

    Nope, if you are happy with your players you can let them ride. Or, if you are unhappy with them or they are on a bye week you can trade them for another player at their current salary. :)

    I made mine last night and checked again just now and everything is working fine. Perhaps they were just having problems at that time? Or, perhaps you are not signed into ESPN?

    I've been also ever since week 1. However, i still make my picks but what I have to do is to click on the "create or join a group" and search for thePhins.com. When I select it, it will then allow me to make my picks and keeps the tally straight, so far, for every week except week 1. Week 1 is the only week that shows up publicly but my total for the other weeks right now is 73. That along with week 1's of 13 totals 86 and would show that if the tally was correct. Even so, I'm far off my mark from last year. :cry:
    Damn Yankees, I guess!! :D

    Thanks. I sent the a message about it myself back then but not heard anything yet either. it's no big deal to me as I "can prove" my standings but it's all in fun anyway. The biggest thing to me is why it malfucntioned like this. probably operator error if you know what I mean!!! I will have a stupid attack now and then!!! :lol: :D

    Actually, there are 5 tied for first place now. I would say that 3 months would be the minimum prize no matter how many win.
