Congrats to Miplet! Is there a weekly perfection bonus again this year?
link to original post



There is; it's $10 a week that carries over if nobody wins it the previous week. I probably will pay these out on a semi as-going basis, not necessarily immediately, but I doubt that I will wait until the end of the season again because my record-keeping sucks...so it will be easier to have fewer people to pay out at a time.

Also, congrats to Miplet!!! Has anyone ever banged it out Week 1 before? Does anyone know offhand?

Ah the memories!

I’m on the fence about playing this year, but I’ll probably do it and submit picks for week 2.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

We always hate to go sub-.500 as a group Week 1, but hopefully Week 2 will turn it around.

This post is mainly to thank EdCollins, once again, for first building the program, second using said program to, and third, posting the Standings every week. That honestly saves me a ton of time as grading the Picks by hand would otherwise be the longest part of this game's administration.

I'd also like to thank Miplet for his program, but I will say that it, unfortunately, no longer works. I suspect the reason why is because VI changed its formatting such that spreads and MLs are no longer on the same page. It's honestly no big deal, so I wouldn't expend time to rewrite the program; posting the lines honestly doesn't take more than five minutes, even doing it manually.

I plan on trying a rewrite as a I use it for my line change stuff. Might be ready for next week.

It's done. http://miplet.net/nfl/current.php Just copy and paste the spread and total page texts in their proper boxes. It will show all games so you'll have to manualy remove games we don't use. Ask any questions, comments, errors ect.

You're amazing, miplet. Can you also provide a link for the software you used to make your picks in the first week? We'd all like to go 6-0 in this 2nd week.

Simply click on the compare lines button. It will show all the lines that have changed with the current line in parentheses. Just make sure that the WoV lines are for the current week and not last.

Hey, I'll have the thread up and PM's for Picks out to people within the next few minutes. This can be the unofficial thread for the game. I'll also post the Lines and PM seogriar2 and everyone who played last year.

I haven't determined what the prizes will be for this season, but they'll be at least the same as last season.

Finally, I'm going to change the rules of the Perfection Bonus such that it will be paid out directly at the end of the season, or maybe even by Amazon Gift Card during the season. Offsetting Entry Fee to the winner is too much of a PITA. Also, for that reason, I'm going to pay Second Place, Third Place, "Most Average," and "You Suck," directly this year and those people will still have to arrange to pay their Entry Fee to the winner at the end of it.

Good to have you back, Mission!

Greetings!

The Week 2 Lines are as follows:

Jets 6.5 @ Browns -6.5 O/U 40
Buccaneers -2.5 @ Saints 2.5 O/U 44
Panthers 2.5 @ Giants -2.5 O/U 43.5
Patriots -2 @ Steelers 2 O/U 40
Colts -4 @ Jaguars 4 O/U 45.5
Dolphins 3.5 @ Ravens -3.5 O/U 44.5
Commanders 2 @ Lions -2 O/U 48.5
Seahawks 8.5 @ 49ers -8.5 O/U 41
Falcons 10.5 @ Rams -10.5 O/U 46.5
Texans 10 @ Broncos -10 O/U 45
Cardinals 5.5 @ Raiders -5.5 O/U 51.5
Bengals -7.5 @ Cowboys 7.5 O/U 42
Bears 10 @ Packers -10 O/U 42
Titans 10 @ Bills -10 O/U 48.5
Vikings 2 @ Eagles -2 O/U 50.5

I'm going to PM everyone who played last week, everyone who posted in this thread (but did not play last week) within the last few days as well as two people from whom I received PM's indicating a desire to play. This should be completed within the next 30-45 minutes as I have something else to do first.

Reminders will be sent Saturday, probably early in the day. I think I will do two more weeks of PM'ing when the lines go up after this, and then after that, it will probably just be Saturday reminders to those who have not yet made their Picks.

To get everyone in the habit of looking for the Lines, today's PM (and the Thursday PM for the next two weeks) is going to contain a link to the lines, but not the actual lines themselves.
