Looks like someone didn't read or ignored this because they didn't pick the Thursday game, but decided to pick for the rest. The group thanks you for the loss/incorrect pick.
You are very welcome! Really changed the % this week didn't it? We'll see in the end how my picking the rest would have made a difference. Maybe just maybe, my picking the rest of the games will have had a positive impact on the overall % ( but I hope not, that would mean we had very poor picks as a group all year.)

Granted I'm not mathematician, but had you selected the Pats, our group would likely be in 1st place. Obviously selecting the Steelers would've put us in the same place. The point is, why even pick any game if you're not going to pick them all? By not picking, its automatically a loss, no matter what, a 0% chance of being correct. I'll take the 50/50 over 0 anyday.

In the end, if someone doesn't like what I post or the 'rules' for our group, then leave it. Simply go to Account and select a different group.

And yet again

Not sure if its better or not that its not the same person as before.......f'n ridiculous. So much for us all being adults and personally responsible, eh? Then again, maybe I should just be the one to find another group as no ones else seems to give a sh!t.

Wags - isnt it possible for that person to still end up with a good record? What if he gets the rest of the games right or even just has a good week, wouldnt it then be worth it for him to have put his picks in? I think this is just a personal pet peeve of yours thats so irritating to you that you re maybe losing perspective a bit. Taking one loss doesnt seem like such an egregious error if they guy can make decent picks. Also, whats wrong with that primitive website that you cant change the pick before game time? It really needs to lock that far in advance? Maybe we should switch this competition to a better more advanced site, no?

I picked KC, which wasn't a bad pick based on how Denver played last week.

I think the pick for Thursday locks in on Thursday at noon. The # of games jumps at that time too, so the records change, but you can still update your picks for Sunday/Monday. And the looks might be mid-90'sesque, but any site would end up having to set a limit for the early games, just like you'd set a limit for changing player in fantasy football.

I think it's just a matter of people having a routine. Tuesday is a dead football day since the monday game is over and it's start of the week before thursdays game. I make all my picks on Tuesday while looking at matchups and then adjust going forward. If someone doesn't think about it until Thursday, they need to maybe just rethink their routine.

You make some good points; however the way I see it is we're supposed to be a team and everyone should be playing for each other and the group as a whole. By not making a pick you're basically disrespecting and putting yourself before the rest of the group (Titus Young anyone?). Its not like this is a new game or even has new rules; it has been this way since day 1. If someone has an issue with the rules, then perhaps they can lobby to change them or just not participate.

What they really need to implement is a minimum to be counted as the group at around half way through the season. Someone getting 13/16 to start the season and to stop picking just to keep a high average just skews the entire process.
