    Are you ready for some football?

    Welcome back everyone to the 9th Annual NFL Pick' Em Contest!!

    This is a straight pick 'em with a few twists thrown in here and there for good measure. Everyone is welcome to play and of course to play with good sportsmanship and maturity. Trash talk is permitted, nay it is celebrated, but let's keep it impersonal. Thanks :)

    As a member of the Contest you will be expected to make your picks on time every week. You have the opportunity to change your picks right up until 1 hour before kick off but make sure that you let me know on the thread so that I can go back to your original pick post to make the adjustments. We are picking Thursday nights this season but if you miss making that pick you're still able to make the rest of your picks. If you are going to be out of town for 1-2 weeks let me know and I'll carry your total over until your return.

    If you forget to make your picks you will be automatically accorded all Away Teams for your picks for that week. This will keep you competitive and in the contest. You can go for 2 weeks without making your picks but after that your score will be zero.

    As you sign up to play give me the names of 2 teams who you think will make it to SB 2017. At Week 12 you will be given the opportunity to trade in 10 points from your YTD to edit your SB picks. You can pick teams from whichever division you choose. All winning SB picks will be accorded an extra 50 points onto their YTD score. This could keep a few of us on our toes!

    I will post the weekly schedule by Tuesday evening every week. I ask that you all copy and paste the schedule into your text box in order to keep all the games concurrent (it makes putting the picks in a lot easier for me). If you want to keep track of your own YTD just keep it updated at the top of your pick post.

    Above all I hope that everyone has fun in the contest. Don't hesitate to drop in here on a daily basis to see whatever smack talk has occurred. :)

    If you have any concerns, suggestions or questions please let me know either here on the thread or in pm.

    Thanks!

    Well I dunno Cat, it's pretty much exactly what I wear everyday. Minus the boots of course ... yoga is strictly a bare feet type of discipline :)
