Makes sense. I'm guessing there aren't many people between 200-239 picks, anyway, so you'd have to drop it all the way down to something like 150 to increase the range. I think 150 would be the lowest rasonable total of wins/losses for two full seasons played. Any less than that would take a ton of pushes.

Buzz was a monster at this game. It's a shame with all of the tough stuff he has had to deal with over the years. No offense to the Wizard, but I wouldn't be shocked if Buzz had taken the title one of the three years that Wizard won it.



Quite possibly. The first year (2012), Buzz was 20-5 when he dropped. Wizard finished over 70%, so that would have been quite a potential battle. As far as total selections, there is quite a gap below 279 selections. Only two players total picks between 190 and 279.

Can't wait to get this thing going!

The year I won it was on the honor system.

Not everyone paid me, despite my e-mails and reminders. I've never forgotten that, naturally.

Not going that route again. (Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.)

I'm out this year.

Hope everyone enjoys the contest.



Nooooooo!!!! We got to do something to get this right. You are a constant in this competition, and very valued for the work you put into it with your weekly results! I'd also like to know who didn't pay, I think they should make things right, or be outed and banned from WOV games!!

I appreciate your comments.

Mission sent me a private e-mail and in a nutshell, after reading it I decided I will play after all, even if it's on the honor system. So yes, I'm in.

I suspect I still have notes on who didn't pay. (I think this was back in 2015.) I don't know if they are still active members here or not. I suppose it's all irrelevant anyway.

I really, really hope you reconsider. No idea who stiffed you or what happened, but perhaps it can be fixed? PM me?

You have simply GOT to play, Ed! It's the only time of year I get to see you.

I'll give you 5-1 odds on any amount up o $200 that you don't. (I'll risk $1,000)

Give me 3 to 1 Wizard in the top 3?

We have our winner! He's luling us into a false sense of security.
