What are Confidence Points and how do I use them?
When u make your picks youre given the option of ‘weighing’ your pick. A week might have 14 games, thus confidence pts will run 1-14. Say you pick GB over Chicago and feel strongly they will win, you will give them a high number, say 14. If your pick wins you get that many points toward your weekly total. If your pick loses you get no points. Games youre not sure who will win you’ll give a low number. You’ll get the hang if it. Besides your two lowest weekly point totals will b dropped from your aggregate score. It’s the first time we’ve used that option.
That was awfully annoying that Yahoo expects you to give it your mobile phone number when creating an account. Nope, not going to happen. So I had to make one up after my usual tricks of entering in 555-1212 or the company's own number both failed.
yes, we’ll all receive self-esteem awards. if you can walk, blink your eyes or count to two, you get a trophy!
ok, try to blink your eyes
Joined. This is my second season. How did I miss you last year???
Of all the threads on Free Republic, this one definitely belongs in Breaking News.
Thanks for doing this. I know it is a lot of work on your part.
Thanks. Someone else started a league before I did so i just tagged along. Welcome to a long season of goofs, gaffes and growls.
I’m off to a good start. 1-0 and 11 points.
There’s one person who is 1-0 but tied with all of the 0-1 people at 0 points. Awww.
That’s what he gets for trying that ‘555-1212’ trick. Welcome to 2-16 Club, KarlInOhio. ; )
Good for both you and me! ... and only 255 games to go. Manning throws for 7 and all I remember is that poor guy with the interception who drops the ball on the one yard line.
I completely forgot about needing to get the picks in before the Thursday game for this pool. At least Yahoo looks forgiving for late picks, so I missed my one point game. Another confidence pool I'm in will assign your first game 16 points as punishment for getting your picks in late. Now I have a reminder for this pool on my picks spreadsheet.
Somebody else makes the 16 pick? Obamascare hits yahoo pick’em!
