    Ok, going to start off with a Spreadsheet .... let's see how it goes. lol

    I'm not JOH ....

    If all works out, we will continue with it.

    Saturday's Games Up .... shaded some lines with 1/2 points so there's no Pushes, unless you guys agree that Pushes will be graded as a 1/2 point ?? Then we will Change it Moving forward with Sunday's Game

    We get one 3 U selection, how can we indicate that if and when we decide to use it.

    Thanks.

    I would like to play but have a question -- do we have to pick every single game? Or can we avoid some lines if we don't have a pick?

    Question. Do all plays have to be posted at one time?
    Or, can we post a play and later post another play?

    Just to confirm --

    The rules here are that you get a point for every total/spread you get right, and there's no penalty for being wrong. So there's no reason not to make a pick on every total/spread, right?

    YES

    I know it wasn't that Clear earlier .... But we have never taken away for losses in any contest that I can think of, so why start now.

    But You Don't have to

    I know we have been going Back and Forth with this ... There was a good question brought up, mainly about the Min & Max

    It didn't make sense having a Min & Max, but I knew there was a reason on the MAX, the Max was to be in place because then everyone would just play Every Game and Total, while Others would actually Cap and only want to play what they Like.

    I'm staying with the MAX of 65.

    posting this Now on day 2, so there's no problems down the line.

    Remember, this goes all the way to the Finals
