Greetings!

Okay, between people who played either of the games last year and seo2griar, I have sent out 27 PM invites. For anyone who did not receive one of these and wants to play the game, simply read the Official Rules here:

https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/sports/37505-official-2022-wov-picks-game-thread/#post860870

At that point, you may simply send me your Picks or PM me with any questions about the game you might have. Alternatively, if you have a question, you can also post it in this thread as most participants have been playing long enough that they probably know the answer.

Reminder PM's to make your Picks will go out Saturday to anyone who received an invitation and has not yet done so. There will generally be reminder PM's always, but especially during the first few weeks of the season.

I can't remember whether or not I did this last season, but I am also going to be sending the Lines to everyone, via PM, on Thursdays. With that, it should reduce the necessity of me sending reminders mid-late season, but I'm still going to try to do it.

Well technically, "minutes after the Monday Night Game is finished" often is Tuesday on the East Coast! (And is always Tuesday in Nova Scotia! ;) !)


LOL. Very true. I stand corrected.

I'm so glad this is on again! Thanks Mission & Ed Collins, it's always a great competition (even if I'm usually fighting for either Most Average or You Suck!

Ive already sent you my picks! Im having some difficulty with the pm functionality on this site but (I think) I was able to send them to you using the reply button. If you want to save time, you can send me the money for Mr. Average now.

I think there is an error in the rules as somewhere you mentioned week 17. There are 18 weeks in the NFL schedule now. Unless you actually want the contest to not include the last week of the season.

Good catch; fixed! I guess nobody caught it last year!

Greetings!

The reminders for Week 1 will be sent in about ten minutes. I have received thirteen PM's that I believe to contain picks so far, but people can always sign up in Week 2 and there are also others who tend to get them in during the 11th hour anyway.

Okay, it looks like 12 sets of Picks in with one of those PM's being a duplicate; sixteen reminders were sent. Many of the initial invitation PM's were not opened, so I assume that those people have not been on in recent days.

If anyone misses this week, please keep in mind that you can start playing as of Week 2; you'll just have used your Skip Week.

I'd also like to see a total of at least twenty players to make the Playoff game worth doing. We will run the main game regardless of turnout, but I'm only going to run the Playoff game if there are at least twenty commitments.

Greetings!

We've got seventeen players to Week 1, so we will want to add at least three in Week 2 to make the Playoff Game worth doing.

If you wish to participate starting Week 2, please keep in mind that you will have already used your Skip Week, so you will not have one. You may participate in the following ways:

A.) Simply PM me your Picks by the time they would be due (10:00a.m. EST 9/16/22) as normal.

Or:

B.) Post in this thread that you would like to receive a Thursday PM as well as a Saturday reminder to make your Picks, if you haven't already.

We also have several PM's that have not been opened, nearly ten, I believe, so if those people appear before next week they might end up playing.

I'd like to wish everyone good fortune in the contest. I am not making Picks this year because my lifetime record is strong enough and over a large enough sample size that I don't feel like I have anything to prove. I wouldn't accept Entry Fees if I were the winner, anyway, so all I would be doing is saving whatever prize money would correspond with any prize that I won.
