2019 Pick 4 Schmoozing

Post by Cliff »

This thread is dedicated to talking about the contest. Please do not use the "Week X Picks" threads for chit-chat, it makes it more difficult for us to score.

Thanks!

If anyone is interested in going head to head with me for $10 for the season i’m Interested. We’ll be on our honor as true Viking fans to settle up at the end of the regular season (17 weeks).

Since I'm in mid-season form and tracking one correct pick a week I'm switching strategies. I will pick the opposite of what I think is going to happen.

I actually believe that would work except my ego won’t let me do it. If I had done that over the last 10 years, I would have had 8 years of winning records instead of losing.

Sorry about the tardiness guys, my dog passed on Wednesday and I was very close to her. It's been a very rough couple of days and I just haven't been able to focus. Plus we've sold our house and our moving into another one ... we're also helping some friends move. I should be back on track next week.

I've been moving so I haven't really had time.

Nobody ever picks the Thursday games anyway.

Might I offer a suggestion: Post the Line for the Thursday game only and allow players to pick that one game if they wish. Then allow them to pick the other 3 games on Sunday before kickoff.

Just because most people don’t pick the Thursday game doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the opportunity to do so.
