Ok here is what my Excel file says for pick summary. Also here were the issues:

ncfatcat did not have colon after name
ncfatcat said Detroit instead of Lions
Also need to fix file so I don’t need to manually fix issues with skip weeks.

GameAwayHomeOverUnder
Raiders 8.5 @ Bills -8.5 O/U 46.56330
Packers -1 @ Falcons 1 O/U 40.561420

I resign from this contest. I'll pay my entry fee to whomever I'm supposed to when it is due. While I can't pick who is on forums I participate in, I can choose who I associate with in contests like this.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

I vote we don’t charge billryan given the facts and circumstances, and if I win, I will not accept payment from him.

While I appreciate the thought, I committed and intend to honor it. $25 won't break me. It was dead money anyhow.

Group is +22 overall so far. Pretty good.

I never take over/unders for this contest. But it will be hard to pass up whatever the under is on Jets going forward…

I will be interested in the bears-chiel line. Chief favorite by 22 sounds about right way fields has been doing and terrible defense.

Thank you again for doing all of this!

I confirmed five of the weekly results for five individuals and everything was right. I would encourage everyone to check their individual games/records for any errors, but I think this program has the right of it. These can be considered official and I will copy them to the other thread.

Perfection Bonuses:

GenWyzgy: Week 2 ($20)

Week 3 Perfection Bonus: $10

I am finding that 75% of the time the NFL "is playing my game".

Not sure what is happening the other 25%

Apparently I was using 2 requests every 2 hours instead of just 1, so I went over my free 500 requests per month. Oops. I paid for the Rookie plan so it should work for the rest of the month. I’ll probably update the times it gets new data for next month so I can go back to the free plan. The last data was 9/21 at noon pdt: https://miplet.net/newnfl/index.php?week=3&year=2023&month=9&day=21&hour=12 and new data should start at 2am.

I also added an easy way to compare current lines to our lines. https://miplet.net/newnfl/diff.php?week=3&day=21&month=9&year=2023&hour=6 is what you should use for this week. If you did this now it will look like:
Ravens -7.5 (-8)
Ravens UNDER 45 (44)
Dolphins UNDER 48.5 (48)
Saints 2 (1.5)
Texans 9 (8.5)
Jets UNDER 37 (36.5)
Seahawks -6 (-6.5)
Seahawks OVER 41.5 (42)
Chiefs OVER 47.5 (48)
Bengals -2.5 (-3)

It shows our lines with the current lines in (),

Greetings!

This is just the disclosure that I have sent Reminders, as follows:

-13 Sets of Picks already received.

-11 Reminders sent.

-BillRyan expressed that he is no longer playing, so did not get a reminder.

-I obviously don't send one to myself.

Greetings!

I can confirm that Miplet has Skipped Week 3. He was sent a reminder.

Given that BillRyan has outwardly resigned from the contest, I am going to ask if he can be removed from the standings. As far as his Entry Fee goes, it's for the eventual winner to collect Entry Fees, so I'm pretty agnostic on it. I would say you can request his Entry Fee if you want, but if he reaches out to you at the end of the contest, then you should definitely accept the funds. If he doesn't reach out to you, then it's up to you whether or not you wish to collect. He'd be expected to pay if you did as there are no free dropouts.

miplet: takes the time to write a program so it’s easy for him to make his picks. Sees its only 3 minutes for it to update and promptly then gets distracted by YouTube videos and falls asleep. 🥸

Thanks Gordon, I tweaked a few things (and had one error in how I scored over/unders) so will send you an updated spreadsheet.

(But looks like it doesn’t affect anyone as our records match!)

I think this table is wrong. Will look at spreadsheet when I have the chance but may not be until this weekend.

Specifically, I think I am 14-3 not 13-3.

Week #2 I picked the Packers -1 and it appears I was credited with a win even though they lost? Can that be right?

These were your week 2 picks:

scolist:
Packers -1 L
Bengals -3.5 L
Buccaneers -2.5 W
Colts under 39.5 L
Rams +7.5 Confidence W

For a 3-3 record. My chart there looks correct.

Let me know if I’m misunderstanding.

Defer to Mission. It’s probably dealt with somewhere in Mission’s door stopper of a rules post.

My spreadsheet does not check for that issue.

Found this in the rules:

9.) "Offsetting Picks"

Any Picks made that directly offset one another shall constitute TWO LOSSES and will disqualify the person making such offsetting picks from winning any consolation prize. "Offsetting Picks," are picking two opposite things to happen in the same game.
It's not a sin if you don't win, but it's a tragedy if you don't try. Be happy and have fun!

The rules state that it becomes two losses with disqualification from consolation prizes.

However, NunBeater is a new player and it's early enough in the season that I can't imagine what possible advantage could be created by way of this error. It was an honest mistake. That being the case, my ruling is to grade both of those picks as losses, if you would be so kind, but to keep everything else the same. There will be no disqualification from consolation prizes due to this occurrence, either.

I guess you are using the ‘new member/honest mistake’ to trump the pretty clear rule. I think if NunBeater is in line for the ‘you suck’ award both picks should be retroactively graded as wins. And he should be disqualified from Mr. Average contention.

But I also feel that what I think, although clearly better than Mission’s solution, should mean close to zero!

NunBeater? Was PuppyKiller already taken?!?!

I think Mission made a fair ruling based on the situation. If it was Week 15, I'm sure there would be no leniency. Also, with a relatively small number of players in the contest, it's easy to judge an individual situation. If there were 100's of players (maybe even just 50), it wouldn't be practical to judge each case on its own and a strict adherence to the rules would be warranted. I won't be losing sleep over this ruling.

I guess you are using the ‘new member/honest mistake’ to trump the pretty clear rule. I think if NunBeater is in line for the ‘you suck’ award both picks should be retroactively graded as wins. And he should be disqualified from Mr. Average contention.

But I also feel that what I think, although clearly better than Mission’s solution, should mean close to zero!

NunBeater? Was PuppyKiller already taken?!?!

Let's split the difference. If NunBeater TIES exactly with any consolation prize, then the other person will win said prize.

If there was significant money involved that would be the correct solution. Since there is value in making a new member feel welcome I in actuality don’t care what you do! I’m trying not to think of the poor 80 year old nun being pummeled somewhere…..
