Converting Pick 4 to Pick Em' Type League

Post by Cliff » Fri Aug 22, 2014 11:38 am

Looking at what's involved in getting the Pick 4 contest together I have to give even more praise to Turtle Burger. The guy (I'm assuming! Sorry if that's wrong) was finding and publishing the spreads, tallying up user picks manually, assigning points, doing the leader board. Quite frankly, it's a daunting task to be committed to for an entire NFL season and I don't think we're going to be able to replace that level of dedication to it.

If you happen to read this, TB. Thanks again for running it over the years.

Moving forward, I was thinking we could start a "Weekly Pick'em" league on NFL.com. It's free and I've created a private group for the message board.

Does anybody have any input on it? If you think you have a better idea I'd like to hear it, please.

No problem, it was fun! :) My wife just had our 7th child so I'm a little bit strapped for time, hopefully next year I'll be able to jump back in.
