    This is the first week and the first year of this contest so we need to be a little flexible, hope everyone agrees with my decision........Thank you.

    Thank you for being so gracious. I知 no great NFL capper, so I don稚 expect to win the contest or even end up in the top 5. I entered because of the site and your relationship with Jeff who has been extremely gracious with the payouts over the years. I知 just supporting the site.

    So, I値l take the New Orleans LOSS and as I said before give Dragon the WIN. Over the years, he has also been very supportive of this site and has had the courage to actually make selections that were not in a contest.

    One favor though. The Bettorsworld site, on a couple of past occasions, used to sponsor a NCAA March Madness Basketball Tournament. My nemesis, or once in a blue moon a friend, Carpet, would love to have such a contest. So would I. If you could use your influence, I would appreciate if you could check with Jeff sometime next February, 2012 on whether it could happen again.

    Thanks.

    I think that's probably the fairest option and I commend you for including laxfo despite his pick being a loss. It makes sense that if it's not a win for me it can't be a loss for him, the game either counts for both of us or it doesn't count for either of us. So, even though I think it could have been ruled a win under the circumstances, I think this is a 'fair for all' decision.

    #7 The Thursday-Saturday rule: If you're using a Thurs. or Sat. game then all picks must be posted in one post and at least one hour before the earliest game.

    I made the same mistake as Dragon. My post was 54 minutes before the scheduled kickoff. However, my post right before Drasgon's was on the losing side. I expect my Saints pick to be recorded as a loss. My post which was right before his may have caused the confusion.

    I say let Dragon have the WIN.

    In the future, post the instructions first and then the Hilton Lines right below, which I suspect you will.

    I say, who cares. Thursday night game, posted before KO is good. I see no reason all selections have to be posted by Thursday.
    Capper loses 2 days of news/injury/whatever.

    However, I am not running this - just offering an opinion. Feel free to ignore me.

    In order to accommodate new or late enrollees for week #1 I will extend the posting of picks to 12 noon EST Sunday. This is for week #1 only. Beginning week #2 we will revert back to the original cut off of Saturday 6:00 PM EST.

    Posting this for anyone who didn't see it on the other thread...
