I have set up a NFL Pickem for DBSTalk members. To sign up you will need a few things. Our group id is 20621 and our password is 1111. Here is the link to sign up. We are set up as a provate group so only DBSTalk members can join. Sign up and see where you stack up! Should be fun. The only other thing I can think to note is that the picks have to be in at least 5 minutes before the kickoff off each game. Good luck all!

No problem. I been asking the mods if it was okay for like 2 weeks and never got a response once so I assumed it was okay. Seems pretty harmless to me. I thought a bunch from here would enjoy it. I know I have the last few years. Good luck everyone!

What does everyone think about turning confidence points on?? Its just a suggestion, but it makes it kind of fun since you can rate your picks and earn bonus points :D

When you make your picks, you rate them from 1-16, with 16 being the game you have the highest confidence in your pick and 1 being the lowest confidence. Everyone does this and depending on how your picks go, you get rewarded for being correct on the higher confidence picks, but it could also go against you :)

Im in too....let's see if I can duplicate the Lions success last year :lol:
A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life." That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it. -- Author Unknown

Hang on there, cowboy... you may want to wait 'til the week before so you actually know who's playing, etc. :grin:

I joined.

Myself & 3 others have done weekly picks of every game the last 3 seasons. We each put in $50, and the end of season winner gets the whole pot.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.
