Oh and here are the rules, just to reiterate:

You may join at anytime, even after the season has started, though once a deadline has passed for a week, you may not make picks for that week
You may make picks for any game up to 5 minutes prior to the start of each game. 1
Admin's and moderators will NOT change your picks for you if you make a mistake. Verify that you have the correct teams picked. IF YOU FORGET YOUR PICKS, YOU ARE SCREWED. YOU HAVE A FULL WEEK TO MAKE PICKS, DONT COMPLAIN IF YOU FORGOT.
There are no weekly winners, only one single seasonal winner.
Tie-breakers will be determined upon who has the closest total scores of all Monday Night Football games combined. There are 17 Monday Night Football games (2 on opening weekend, 1 every other week except the last week). Choosing the total score of all MNF games and getting closest to the actual total score will win the tiebreaker.
The Leaderboard will only show the top 50 players. Due to the nature of the number of users, it is not feasible to have that many people listed. IF you are not listed in the top 50 go to Pickem Home and your score if greater than 0 will be listed at the top.
Feel free to send your complaints to Taco John, under no circumstances are you to complain to Rock Chalk. He doesn't care :)

Oh and one last thing.

I do apologize to all for the lack of any improvements to the system this year. After last year, I did get some great feedback and stuff to implement but I had to prepare to move from CO back to TX, buy a house, move a family, start a new job, get settled in, mow the lawn on weekends, plot to take over the world, etc. I am a very busy man and quite simply, I completely forgot about the pickem league after it was done with.

Taco permitting, I will do my best to make amends and implement some of the features that have been suggested.

One popular feature people have requested is an "Against The Spread" league. Sounds awesome, but the practicality of this is unfeasible. While theoretically I could cURL the URL of a place that keeps spreads and regex out the spreads for each game, it would be a nightmarish hassle (and if you have any idea of what regular expressions are and how complex they can be then you know what the flagnog Im talking about). The other solution is to manually put in the spreads that come out on Tuesday of every week. Since we cannot count on our mods to even moderate teh forums properly, much less figure out spreads this is unrealistic as well.

"Team" leagues do sound fun though, where teams of n number of people make up a team and compete against n number of teams in a league and that would be possible.

Eventually Im going to set the timestamps to show the time of the game in your profile's timezone setting instead of just "Eastern".

Any other feedback would be appreciated, please however, send your complaints to Taco, as I said above, I really don't give a **** if you dont like it.

Sorry had to throw that jab in there...didn't look like either QB wanted to win that game yesterday. Pick needs to run the ball more, if he gets his job back.

It would be nice if the receivers held on to the ball. Both QBs had let downs from their WRs. Statistically KU won that game pretty handily. Unfortunately the ONE statistic they sucked at was turnovers adn that is a very key stat.

*shrug* I didnt expect much from my team this year. Or any year for that matter. Winning in football is a bonus, but certainly not expected.

There is a bug in the system. It's not a big deal but it's going to cause a totalling error till I get it fixed.

Last game of each week is currently unable to be updated. So if you got the Chorfs / Chuggers game right, it hasn't been tallied yet. I will fix it this weekend and you will automatically be given your points for the last game last week.

Not sure how this happened, I didnt change any of teh code and we didn't ahve this problem last year so it may just be a problem with the dates. Anyway, just wanted everyone to know so there is no confusion on why scores may not be accurate.

week 3 picks, I looked at the Colts Broncos and thought there's no way. But I felt this pain so I changed my pick. Stuuupppiiidddd!!!!!!

yah. This is the goofiest pickem league I've ever been in.Week two or three it wouldn't let me make picks a half hour before the games costing me more than a couple games. Now it's apparently letting you pick any ol time. Any normal Pickem and I'd be at 87+ not 83. And on the flip side we have people in the triple digits already...lmao!

We'd be better off writing down all our picks and sticking them to our foreheads with webcams. LOL

God dammit.

This is unfortunate. But let me explain.

Last year, was a different server with a different timestamp. So the coding was done for that time zone. The servertime changed so the deadling was off by like 4 hours or something. I couldnt do a quick fix at the time it was too close so I removed the timelimit for the week which resulted in people being able to make picks. Unfortunately I completely forgot to put it back in so the next week and for the rest of that week people were able to cheat. I believe I have the issue resolved, and will find out for sure in about one hour and if not will make changes to correct the issue.

There will be some changes over the offseason.

1) Code in timezone effects so it wont matter what the server time is. I should have done this before but I was being lazy and didnt think Taco would be moving servers.
2) Add in timestamps for when users changed their picks, anyone exploiting any bugs will be automatically banned from participating forever. No exceptions.

The "beta" testing phase of this was very partial and not robust and it was built quickly and no changes made. This is unfortunate but **** it, best I could do on short notice without proper testing. Next year will be better.

I do sincerely apologize.

What happens on the pick em if there is an overtime tie??
Almost happened today..

No one wins. This is picking a winner. No option for ties. Its fair to everyone as no one wins and no one loses that game, kinda like the teams that play in it. Its a "tie". :)

LOL..

it started happening since 2 weeks. I am in lead even before that..
I am playing this for fun.

Yeah, you have missed 1 in two weeks. Your next best week you missed 5 games.

Cheater.

Or are you going to sit there and tell us all you picked Cleveland to beat New England in Week 9?

Let me be the first one to say no apologies necessary.

We're all busy.

Shiat happens!

It's kinda funny actually.

Props for at least trying to give us a league. I know I'm not up for coding one.

He thinks I hate him? Or that he thinks I would change my mind if I met him?

I don't hate anyone. He is on ignore because I do not want his ignorance to somehow infect me but I don't hate him. I don't even know the dude.

But he averages 4 losses a week and mysteriously during the exploit, misses only one game and picks probably the biggest upset of the year in Cleveland over New England and I can't legitimately suspect he was abusing the system?

At the same time..I hope you would take time and list all the posters that cheated the system instead of blaming me(Especially..NE vs Cleveland game).
If you think posters cheated, please don't count weeks(i believe 8,9 and 10).
That's just my opinion..It is frustrating to see each poster come and tell that i cheated..

I cheated. I won't be picking anymore during the season. As soon as I saw there was a problem I posted it. I understand that you were winning when it started. You still cheated and turned a two point lead into a 15 point lead. If it frustrates you to be called a cheater you shouldn't cheat.

Also, how did you know other's didn't cheat.
Actually..it is better that we remove last 3 weeks..
Why can't mods do it?..
This will end all our discussion..

Rockchalk told that i cheated because i chose Browns over NE..
Why can't he list all the posters that chose Browns and called them cheaters??

He called me cheater..yet he ignored that i chose 4 incorrect last week.

The reason I called you out is because you were pretending like you didnít know it was going on after going 25/26.

His "scare tactic" for one, and his insinuation that he didn't cheat.

I got 11. My picks are also at Bronco Forums so you know i dont cheat. This is for free and there is no prizes to get so to cheat shows what kind of character you really have. 25/26, yes go broncos, you cheated and you were leading too.
