Is the pickem league happening this year or has that fallen by the wayside?

I'd love to see it back this year.
There were some people that cheated, don't know how they did that, but if that can be corrected of whatever allowed people to cheat, then it should be fun again.

Hopefully we can have it up this year. It was kind of fun for sure!

gobroncos without the ability to cheat will be like the Colts without Peyton Manning.

go_broncos with his "fire McDaniels" post in every thread and then trying to cover up his obvious cheating ruined a good time. I think I came in 2nd or close to it and picked honestly even after we all discovered how he did it. Rock Chalk did it last year and hopefully he fixed the Time stamp to prevent the cheating.

On a somewhat related note does anyone know of a site that consolidates points scored and given up at home and on the road?

If you are talking about the integrated Pickem League, no can do this year. Been a busy year folks, I just changed jobs and I have not had any free time.

I have made some corrections however, but I wont have time to get everythign set up this year. Next year the OM Pickem League will be outstanding, I promise.

So, can someone provide a condensed version of what happened last year? This is the first I've heard about someone cheating.

If that is true (and looking at the standings, I don't really know how it WOULDN'T be true - unless the guy is superhuman), was he banned? I would think that would be worthy of almost a lifetime ban.

Never mind. I just went back and checked out the thread. He probably shouldn't be banned. But bragging about his "victory" after everyone knew he cheated stinks of douchebaggery.

I think that as nice as the thought is, RE: Alec doing the Pick-Em league, it's failed enough times to be able to classify it as a bad idea. Again, it's REALLY NICE that Alec has been willing to try and integrate a seamless system into the Mane. But as I remember, a few years ago, the thing just stopped getting updated with a chunk of the season left. Last year, it looks like mods didn't have time to update the system with game results for as much as a week or two at a time. Plus, you have the glitch that allowed people to cheat.

Is there any compelling reason why we wouldn't just use something like Yahoo going forward? It's simple and easy; almost everyone is signed up for Yahoo anyway (because of fantasy football); and Yahoo has the resources to make sure the games are updated in real time.

The people who developed the mod stopped supporting it, and we upgraded the forum to 3.x, and the old version of the software is no longer compatible. I've heard another group is taking on the project, but we'll see.

You will notice I retracted that with the next post.

That said, you still acted like a douchebag. This post (with you and everyone else knowing you cheated) gets you the award:

Dom Casual, the link is to YAHOO so sign up and this time go_broncos has to play fair. He should be banned from this pick em since he is an admitted cheat.

I didn't cheat.If you guys think i should be banned from pickem.it's fine.
I will not participate.It's not the end of the world.
There are so many things that are more important to me than participating in pickem league.
Have fun..
