    Well, I flipped over to see the score a few minutes ago and a coach was arguing with the zebra. My question is can they toss a coach, like in baseball?
    Anyway, if you can't get 1/2 yard that close, you deserve to lose.

    Yes they can. But it doesn't happen NEARLY as often. There's not as much dirt to kick on the Ref.LOL

    Usually, the huge players on his team will restrain the coach before he gets into too much trouble.

    Apparently I'm going to try to go winless on Thursday games this season. Actually I'm kind of pissed at myself because I had the Jaguars and let the "experts" talk me into the Titans right before the game.

    Yeah Rube. But I'm not so sure they saw that kid coming. The Jags' Quarterback.The man threw some seriously accurate passes. I forget his name...Gardener M..something the second.

    I went with my gut and got lucky. I go with my gut often...which explains my humongous wins and unquestionable dominance in this contest every year!

    I normally go with my gut which gets me third every third year or so and middle of the pack the rest of the time. The rookie QB helped but the Jags D also put a hurting on Mariota. The way their D held Houston to so few points is why I initially was going to pick them.

    Y'all must be really good pickers. I'm in 17th place. I'm using my exact same picks in another group (on Yahoo, but I'm just porting over the same picks). For that group, I'm in 3rd place!!

    The "Hawks looked Soooo good against the Saints eh?

    As I am out of market...way out, I rarely get to see them. Not the best game to see my team.

    So I screwed up and forgot to put in picks until mid-day. I probably have no chance to catch up to place at the top but does this also make me ineligible to "win" last place?

    Per the rules listed on the first post:

    **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!!!!
    The "one or two games" is an example - you are still able to go either direction, but, you would take an 8-point hit to qualify for last place. So you would have to have the lowest score +8. Does that make sense?

    Funny thing is, I think I had a chance to make up some ground this week. I am within 4 of this week's best score and 2 of the season leader and I picked 8 less games. Oh well.

    Are you going to throw out a cool, yellow flag for these penalties or do I have to throw out my red flag to have N.Y. review the picks?
