    Default 2018 Dark Tower Football Pick Contest - Come Reap!!!

    The season begins THURSDAY, September 6, 2018. 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://fantasy.espn.com/nfl-pigskin-...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!!!!

    Actually, you can make picks for ALL the weeks today. That's usally what I do, then review them each week to see if I still would stand by the blind guesses I made in August. Usually, that is a big negatory.

    Yes, I like that you can make picks far enough in advance to compensate for vacations, etc.

    Either way, I'll continue to suck.

    Ugh! I made the Thursday pick then went to do some research. I waited to hear about some injuries and then was ready to make my picks for week one and...the ESPN site is down and has been for about two hours!!! UGH!!




    I can't just wait around. I have centipedes to sacrifice to Satan and meth pipes to whittle out of the bones of Serbian catfish.

    That may be the worst week I've ever had. I am no longer tied for 1st place.

    Well fuck me!


    I missed the Thrusday pick in week two.


    I'm still not used to the NFL playing on Thursday. I am way too old. Bah! I remember watching the Doomsday Defense and the Steel Curtain.


    I watched them on an Edison Phonograph recorded on wax records sent a signal that came in on a landline from a dial up modem...or maybe I'm confused about technology.
