    Default 2021 Dark Tower Football Pick Contest - Come Reap

    ESPN has a VERY different look - and win/loss is still the game, but they now appear to award 10 points for each win. Get in the game early so you can feel your way around before the group locks on THURDAY, SEPTEMBER 9!

    How to Play

    1. Itís simple. Click on the following link and it should take you to the ESPN pigskin pick'em site. If you donít have an ESPN profile, you will have to set one up.

    https://fantasy.espn.com/games/nfl-p...a-2319ca875f3e

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

    ESPN will initially name your entry, but you can change that entry name to better identify with your name here once the entry has been created (look for the blue gear cog).

    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. This contest will end at the conclusion of the ESPN Pick'em season.

    4. At the end of the pick'em season, whoever has the best 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, or suffer a penalty for any game(s) not picked. To be safe, just be sure to get IN THE GAME each week and make your picks early!!!!

    Last year, Merlin1958 was generous enough to host a post-season trophy event. Should that occur again, I encourage all to participate. THANK YOU!

    Not tempted enough? - here are the last couple of years trophies...

    Locked & Loaded!!!


    I'm in and all set!! I'll obviously be seeking the 1st place trophy but, just as important for me is to finish better than, El Jefe!! That's right, Boss I'm coming for YOU!!!

    Couple of additional notes, I'll be happy to host "The Post Season" tournament again if you all enjoyed and want to go for the trophies again. I believe we had one for 1st place and one for 2nd but I'll go check and confirm. Like last year we'll run it in a separate thread, with no cost just full participation and I'll PM for delivery information. Of course, you also obtain full bragging rights!!! It was a very cool and spirited competition last year.

    And J, just to show how serious I am, I picked against the, Jets and for the, Raiders for opening weekend!!! GO BIG BLUE as well!!! That's right, whatever it takes to WIN!!!
    The Houston Astros cheated Major League Baseball from 2017-18!!!!

    They cheated their way to a couple of League Championships & a World Series!!!!

    Is that how we teach our kids to play the game now?????

    Yeah - I don't know. I can't seem to manage that in the group settings, so it must be ESPN and I'm not impressed. I even updated my personal information and it did not affect my entry. Grr!

    Edit to add: Several hours after updating my personal information (in my ESPN profile), my entry did change.

    So I tried that - using a translation of my last name - and it worked. Not that I'm worried about you guys - but in general I like to keep as private as possible. No social media crap and I rarely show up in a google search...

    Yeah, me too. I did a name change and made my initial picks for week 1. When I went back to cjeck it was all gone. No name change, no picks. May be too early for any of that stuff?

    I made my picks for week 1 and they are still there. To change my personal info, I used the little little person icon in the far upper right corner.

    What's weird is that on my Fire tablet the listings look like they did last year - LurkerTDT1, LurkerTDT.
    On my laptop, using Microsoft Edge - I get the registered names.

    And what's this 17 weeks stuff? Isn't 16 stressful enough!!!

    It's actually 18 weeks of picking. Allowing for bye weeks. It seems that your tablet is stuck WAY back in 2020.

    Awww, that's cute, but alas, it's not me. I've never played Minecraft. I only play first person shooters (OOHH - Far Cry 6 soon!!!!!) and the only place I use Lurker is here. Of course, it is the only forum I use...

    I think the Sep. 9th area is normal. They cut preseason by 1 game. And kudos to Lurker for catching that yes, there are 17 games in the regular season! Wow!!!!

    Game on, folks. Have a great, safe, Labor Day!
