    Default NFL Pick'em League

    We had a Pick'em League on here last year that was completely controlled through CCS. It was a lot of work for the poster that led the league, and I thought if he was willing, I'd host one through Yahoo! Sports if anyone was interested. I can offer up a Bears Book for the winner, providing we get 20+ entries.

    Anyone have interest in a Pick'em League?



    OK - Pay attention.

    League Host: Yahoo! Sports
    League Name: ChiCitySports.Com
    League ID: 11718
    League Pass: CCS (all caps)

    NAME YOUR PICK SET THE SAME AS YOUR CCS USER HANDLE, PLEASE

    League Style: Confidence Points + TieBreaker

    Winner wins (at the minimum) the following, assuming we have 20+ entries:
    Warning, the following may be Not Safe For Work or a storyline spoiler.
    Gale Sayers Autobiography



    Also, If the winner is not a donator, I'll personally pay for you to get donator status.

    Those are pretty fun! I'm in. Hope point spreads are in place so it is harder

    Yahoo will have weighted pickem too. Number all your picks 1 through 16, 16 for the one you're most confident in etc. That's better than just straight picks, imo. I'll play either way though.

    That's up for debate among interested parties. Point spreads are possible to do through Yahoo!, just didn't know how much interest there'd be in it.

    Yeah, that's the best way to do it, imo.

    Only thing with weigbted picks is it does take a while to keep track and reorder the teams when u get to the end but whatever the majority wants. I like the Vegas odds bc every pick takes a little bit of balls and people have to pick underdogs once in a while

    I'd be ok with the spread or the confidence picks, as long as it's one or the other. Applying both would make it a crap shoot.

    On the bright side, other people quitting doesn't effect the leaders like it does in other Fantasy Sports. Winner gets the bacon.
