    Okay, I'll be the Commish on this one since it's easy. lol
    Just give your feedback here on what kind of pick em you want to do.

    1. Straight up pick
    You pick head to head games for each week on who you think is going to win.

    2. Picks against the spread
    You pick a teams based on point spread for all games each week.

    3. Confidence straight up
    You pick head to head games for each week on who you think is going to win.
    And assign each game a point value based on how confident you are that you're right.
    15 most confident, 1 least confident. Every game gets it's own vaule. So you can't put 15 across the board. You can only use each value once.


    4. Confidence against the spread
    You pick a teams based on point spread for all games each week.
    And assign each game a point value based on how confident you are that you're right.
    15 most confident, 1 least confident. Every game gets it's own vaule. So you can't put 15 across the board. You can only use each value once.


    I'm also thinking about instituting the lowest week score drop.
    So at the end of the season it will automatically drop everyone's lowest score.
    Seems like every season someone forgets to make picks for 1 week and then says screw it, I give up.
    And we end up with a lame duck team.
    This added measure will hopefully keep the league intact.


    So let the feedback begin.

    Vin I go with "Confidence straight up"

    More challenging than just picking winner loser. Doing the spread deal is too much work for ya. ie. spread changes all week.

    We will be using choice 3.

    3. Confidence straight up
    You pick head to head(no spread) games for each week on who you think is going to win.
    And assign each game a point value based on how confident you are that you're right.
    15 most confident, 1 least confident. Every game gets it's own vaule. So you can't put 15 across the board. You can only use each value once.

    Tiebreakers will be used to determine each week's winner if it ends in a tie.

    Your lowest week of the season will be dropped.
    So if you miss a week or do horrible it will not count against your score.

    Official scoring begins in Week 1.

    You have up until 5 minutes prior to every game to make your picks. Which basically means on weeks when there is a Thursday game you don't have to pick all games. You can do that one and save the others until closer to game time.


    So sign up now and invite others.

    Colors for the winner of the league, I think, would be in order. One week, I'd say.

    I'd also be tempted to give 24 for a perfect week.
