In any event, the Week 6 Picks are as follows:

-snip-

Rainman:
Raiders -3
Cowboys -2
Seahawks +3
Commanders +2.5
Cowboys -2 Confidence

-snip-

link to original post



Here are the Rainman's week 6 picks and again rainman picked the Cowboys-2 twice. Of course, not flagged by the spreadsheet; and Rainman was graded as 5-1 on Week 6, apparently getting 3 units of credit for the Cowboys pick.

Yikes. The same pick appears twice, albeit with growing conviction. We need a Mission ruling.

(And I'm not even mentioning the trivial apostrophes catastrophe.)

On week 8 rainman picked the 49ers twice but I caught this one and Mission chose to give him a -1 for the one unit pick. Not sure why rainman continued to use this strategy in later weeks.

The Week 7 Picks are as follows:
-snip-

Rainman:
Lions +3
Raiders -3
Browns -3
Dolphins +2.5
Raiders -3 confidence
-snip-
link to original post



This is from week 7, again Rainman submitted two picks for Raiders -3. Rainman was graded at 0-6 (!) that week in the cumulative grading tab of the spreadsheet; but apparently the spreadsheet table that I posted lists him as 0-5. I have a sinking feeling that the results for rainman that I post are based on scoring only the latter of the two identical picks, but the tabular entries in my cumulative grading tab are giving him credit for both of his duplicative picks. :(

I have not yet looked at Weeks 1-5, but not sure we need to.

@Gordon, if you send me the spreadsheet I can add an error check for this.

All this Rainman chatter when we should be focusing on the clear winner from week 10, SOOPOO, now in position for a second consecutive weekly win. Iím 5-0 just needing the Chiefs tomorrow night. My ascension to Mr. Average continues!

We need to hear from Mission regarding rainman's status. This is his contest and we need to honor his right to make decisions and deal with whatever messes arise.

At this moment, the Monday Night game is undecided, but unjon has finished 6-0, to qualify for the Perfection Bonus. However, soopoo and ncfatcat will also have perfect 6-0 weeks if the Chiefs cover the -2.5 point spread.

So, there is a game this Friday (Jets v. Dolphins). I assume it is not eligible to be picked since it is not a Sat-Sun-Mon game?

I can't remember there ever being an NFL game on a Friday (although the interwebs say there was one in 1986). I just wanted to make sure.

HoustonDallas, we have a problem.

Iím not sure how the game resolved, but we can let the Confidence Pick stand and the other be ignored.

Thought it was legal, but definitely violates Rule 3 #3a. Have done this multiple times this season just
haven't been noticed because they weren't stacked in order. Whatever happens im cool with it
you guys are fair. Anybody have miplets number so I can give it to Telemarketers. :)

Multiple times? I guess Iíll have to go through and grade all as no decisions.

Henceforward, please note (everybody) any duplicate Picks will be graded as ALL LOSSES with no exceptions whatsoever.

Stay in please, I think Iím going to grade all instances of duplicates as a push (the Confidence Pick shall always push) for the time being.

I should really be checking for this, but I get lazy with the spreadsheet and just copy/paste Picks from PMs (adjusting only for formatting), so itís as much my fault.

Maybe slightly less my fault, but non-zero my fault.

Iíll also announce it when I post the Lines, but I think Iíll include that game with the normal making that set of Picks one hour before kickoff (and the Picks cannot be changed) to apply a La Saturday early pick rules.

It seems that Rainman is absolutely determined to resign, so I have no choice but to accept. Unlike BillRyan (who I leave it for the winner to remember to collect on), Rainman has played enough weeks that I obviously canít allow a bow out.

If Rainman is determined to resign, then I would encourage him to at least play for Perfection Bonuses. There has to be some equitable way to resolve this, I think.

However, if thatís his decision, then I would ask that he remain in the Standings, but be regarded as disqualified. On balance, it seems like picking this way didnít even necessarily help him, but Iíd have to go back and look.

In the meantime, congratulations to UnJon on a $20 Perfection Bonus!

It would also appear that I have a little bit of breathing room in trying to win the You Suck prize, but thereís a lot of season left. Honestly, Iíve watched maybe ten minutes of actual games this year, so Iím just trying to find Picks that look bad on the face of them. Lol

Upon being informed that the collective results to date of the assembled WoV "AP sharps" are only losing slightly more in total than selections from '50/50' coin flipping by a blind chimpanzee (or for that matter by the identical random expectation of a perfectly healthy coin-tossing Einstein), my sportsbetting consultants at The Library, Stormie, Tiffani, and Tempest, who are in line to become the eventual beneficiaries of the Fade the WoV Forum Fund, are like "meh" about that.

Quote: Tempest the Library scholar

Pfffft, getouttahere widdat. Tempest don' wanna bother to be bendin' down to pick up a coupla loose coins of pocket change that done shook outta just some almost average type so-so sorta loser, so now alla y'all needs ta get busy an' lose more for me, honey.

Quote: Stormie the Librarian

Yeah baby, Stormie don't need to hear 'bout no flippin' coins! Cuz Stormie be needin' a new pair a shoes, baby. So you just go tell them wiizardy sharpee kinda boys, or waddever dey are, to suck a li'l bit harder.

I will not be available on Sunday morning (or any other time on Sunday)* and will not be able to provide a summary of Week 12 picks after Mission has posted the Week 12 picks by contestant. unjon has previously offered to fill-in for me when I am absent, and I'll check to see if he is available -however, I believe he may be on the road this entire holiday week. I will still be able to post the weekly results after the Monday Night game, so no problem there.

It is not essential to have a tabular summary of picks on Sunday morning; it is just intended to add to the fun of the contest. If unjon can't help with that summary table, does anyone else want to offer to compile it manually and post it on Sunday? I am talking about the table that looks like this:
GameAwayHomeOverUnder
Falcons -2.5 @ Titans 2.5 O/U 35.53121
Texans -3 @ Panthers 3 O/U 43.55300
Saints -1 @ Colts 1 O/U 43.53700
Patriots 9.5 @ Dolphins -9.5 O/U 46.53311
Jets -3 @ Giants 3 O/U 36.54203
Eagles -6.5 @ Commanders 6.5 O/U 43.59301
Rams 6 @ Cowboys -6 O/U 45.54610
Vikings -1 @ Packers 1 O/U 428300
Jaguars -2.5 @ Steelers 2.5 O/U 424301

Chiefs -7 @ Broncos 7 O/U 466203
Bears 8.5 @ Chargers -8.5 O/U 46.55000
Raiders 8 @ Lions -8 O/U 46.51600


If no one can do it, we'll just do without it, I guess.

*On Sunday, I'll be in an all-day WSOP Circuit poker tournament in North Carolina, so completely unavailable for a very respectable reason! :)

Please keep in mind that you must get your Picks in by 14:00EST today if you wish to pick Jets/Dolphins AND your Picks cannot be changed, for any reason, if they include that game.

the collective results to date of the assembled WoV "AP sharps" are only losing slightly more in total than selections from '50/50' coin flipping by a blind chimpanzee

Yeah, but there's never a blind chimp around when you need one.

1.) You know, as soon as I make a comment about reminders probably not being needed anymore---this happens!

2.) Don't worry, you didn't all get fleeced on Dolphins/Jets; the picks are just order received this week.

3.) Picks were added and formatting corrections now made above and double checking again.

I'll give you first five that aren't the Dolphins with no Confidence Picks. This is a one week only thing as we are approaching the end of the season, so any missed Picks (for those who have taken a skip) are just going to be 0-5 henceforward.

Miplet has been added!

I have just returned to find that, in my absence, I have gone 5-0 with my only non-winner being a push with my Eagles-3 pick. By far my best week of the year!

Oh, and I cashed (finished high enough to get a payout) in the WSOP Circuit tournament I played in today.

DD, last week, you were talking about a blind chimp flipping coins. Now, evidently, it is a blindfolded chimp throwing darts. You do realize those are two very different skill sets, right?

I seriously doubt that I can find a chimp that can both blindly flip coins and throw darts to make my picks. I guess I'll just have to stick with my Magic 8-Ball.
