Mission has the Chargers playing a team that is not in the NFL. I am assuming he meant the Washington Football Team.

    "Football Team," or, "Redskins," will both be acceptable for team nickname. My guess is that Miplet's program read, "Washington," and the change has not been made for the team nickname, as yet. I imagine EdCollins will also have to add it to his program to recognize, "Football Team," as being the Redskins.

    I'll update it to "Football Team" shortly. Edited to add: I need to check that adding a space in the nick name doesn't mess things up first.

    One other thing: I haven't heard from BBB, so would anyone like to volunteer to receive my Picks every week?

    You'll have to have the PMs sit in your Inbox until the end of the season, so keep that in mind.

    The reason that I must PM my Picks to someone is that the timestamp from when I sent the PM will prove that I made my Picks prior to looking at Picks that anyone else made, as I can provide a screenshot with the timestamp of when I opened the Picks of others. I don't think there would ever be an issue, even if I won, but this method of me PM'ing my Picks to someone guarantees the integrity of the game.

    I’m happy to receive your PM’d picks.

    You have been designated! Thank you very much! They'll usually be at some point on Saturday...generally pretty close to when I do the reminder PMs.

    Greetings!

    The Reminder PM's are just now about to go out. It looks like we might not end up with as many players as 2019, unless people are just waiting around to try to play line movement. I sort of expected there would be a drop off with taking a year off, but I really didn't feel like dealing with all of the possible contingencies that could have theoretically come with the 2020 NFL Season.

    Of course, what I feared didn't come to fruition as, I think, only a few games ended up being postponed at all.

    Anyway, if the Picks continue to come in at the current rate, then my guaranteed contributions to this game are actually going to eclipse the total in Entry Fees...so there's excellent value to be had, as of right now, if you are reading this.

    Greetings!

    I'm about to do a detail check to make sure that I didn't miss anybody, but I don't think I did. It looks like there are a total of 22 players so far this season, myself included.

    Of course, new players can jump in before Week 2, but Week 1 counts as their skip week if they do.

    As of right now, Entry Fees would total $525 against $650 in guaranteed added prizes (I don't pay Entry Fees) and $180 in possible weekly prizes if the Perfection Bonus is won in Week 18. (By necessity, the full amount would be paid out just by virtue of a perfect Week 18 record alone)

    Not quite what I was hoping for compared to 33 players in 2019, but I figured there would be some kind of drop off given that we took the 2020 season off. Hopefully, others will see the clear value in jumping in Week 2 (as of right now, added prizes are more than 100% the sum of Entry Fees) and will want to jump in.

    Let's have a great season!

    The AP flight from WOV definitely had an impact. Sad.
