    Default 2017 Dark Tower Football Pick Contest - Come Reap!!!

    The season begins THURSDAY, September 7, 2017. NO late registration!!!!

    How to Play

    1. Itís simple. Click on the following link and it should take you to the ESPN pigskin pickem site. If you donít have an ESPN profile, you will have to set one up. Trust me, itís worth it!!!! If you joined in on the other ESPN contests earlier this year, that profile will work. In fact, as a bonus to joining us in the Pigskin picks, youíll be able to easily compete in other contests such as March Madness and College Bowl Mania.

    http://games.espn.com/nfl-pigskin-pi...p?groupID=2043

    Password: roland (all lower case) - please do not share this with non-members of this site.

    If you have questions about how to set things up in our group, post your questions and the community of folks here will try and help you out.

    2. The contest will begin with the first regular season game in Week 1. Only one entry per person in our group and it must be identifiable to me as a member on this board or you can PM me with your ESPN handle. Once the season has started the group is locked. This means that any latecomers will not be able to join (sorry about that!), so please get in early. Picks for week 1 can actually be made now!

    3. The contest will end at the conclusion of the regular season.

    4. At the end of the regular season, whoever has the best Win/Loss record wins the coveted First Place trophy. We also award trophies for Second, Third, and a (much sought after, one of a kind, not available in any other contest) Last Place Trophy**

    **In order to qualify for last place, you need to pick every week, however, If you mistakenly miss picking one or two games (i.e. a Thursday or Saturday game), we can do the math and, with penalties, make adjustments. To be safe, just be sure to get IN THE GAME each week and make your picks early!!!!

    GET...
    IN...
    THE GAME!

    Trophies from last year....

    Yeah, well sorry, El Jefe. You'll have to find another competitor. Maybe next year?

    You are "The biggest fish in a small pond" after all. Good luck with your picks this year, my friend. Sorry, but no "blooming Onion" at the end of it all this time.

    It must be too early in the morning but I cannot figure out how to join. I go to the groups and it shows me this group and has an option to Rejoin which I select but that it just takes me back to the group page but I don't see my name listed. What am I doing wrong and how do I join for this year? Thanks.

    It never gave me an option to enter a password.

    I'm not sure whats going, I tried three different browsers on two different computers. I am logged into my account and can see the 2016 season and when I go to the groups to rejoin it takes me to the Group page where I can see the people that have signed up but it never asks me for a password and does not add me to the group.

    Hmmm...I'm not sure what's happening with yours. I know you have to be in the current season (there are about 7 folks listed so far), then when you hit "rejoin" you should come to the screen where you name your entry and put in a password. We've got a few weeks to figure this out. Last resort would be contacting their support desk.

    He could try entering with a slightly different name.

    Another member is having issues - the fix is actually creating another ESPN account. Hopefully this isn't a trend. Our group is swelling and that's good.

    What I had to do was log in and start signing up like I was a going to join a random league. When I got to step 2, the option to rejoin Palaver Gunslingers was there. I clicked rejoin and was put into the group.

    Another trick - when you log in, look for the "PLAY NOW FOR FREE" button with a countdown of days to contest. Hit that button and if you have played in the group before, the next screen allows you to give your entry a name (i.e. your Dark Tower handle) and enter the password: roland

    It entered me without the password.

    Thanks for the banner, RF. I agree that the more, the merrier. Even if my odds of winning decrease. We're at 14 right now with one week of pre-season remaining.

    ESPN is a mess...this is what kept me out the last few years. I tried make a new account but it wouldn't delete the old one.
