Skip to comments.2nd Season of Freepers NFL Football Pick'Em!
Posted on 08/27/2006 2:57:07 PM PDT by IMTOFT
For those who enjoyed Football Pick'Em last year, it's back again! We've created a private group called Freepers that you are invited to join at Yahoo. (http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem)
You need to have a Yahoo ID to join. Sign into Yahoo, and search on Private Groups using the Group ID #17380 and the password freepers.
The rules are the same as last year: Pick all 16 games per week, and assign each game with a confidence rating of 1 to 16. (Each game must have a unique confidence rating, duplication is not allowed.) You get the total of the ratings per week for the games you pick correctly.
Please note: Only the first 50 people to sign up are allowed in as Yahoo limits the size of the league.
Sign up now and secure your spot as the NFL guru of the Free Republic!
From Yahoo: "You have created the Private Group called Freepers and the Pick Set called Ravens in that group. To allow other people to join this group send them the Group ID# (17380) and the Password (freepers). Remember, it is the Group ID#, not the group name, that other people must use to join your group. Your goal is to earn more points than other people by selecting the winner of each of this year's regular season games."
I think this link will take you directly to the league:
I'm going to sign up.
This was a lot of fun last year and I wanted to make sure members of the NFL Ping List had a chance to sign up.
I'm in :)
Joe Theismann's Shin....
Good...it was fun last year. I forgot to fill out the confidence points on the first week and never could make it up.
This year I won't make that mistake again!
I can't remember why I missed it last year....
That's my 3rd pick'em league...
Hopefully my performance won't be affected by the college football season :)
Excuse me if I don't want to share my picks and see the odds change on my 100% WINNING PICKS. </sarc
As a Redskins fan, I have the perfect system: Washington will score the least points and lose every week. Ha!
I'm in (CatSmack) and have never done this before. I have read the rules, but still have 2 questions. Are we playing with the points spread or not? And, if you enter picks, can you go back and change them before the deadline? Thanks.
Alright, I'm in. Made my picks. I'm going to fail miserably at this.
This is playing lines and confidence...
I didn't know the week one lines were out yet??
I already want to re-do my picks. Eesh.
I'm already confusing it with my other league that does spread and confidence....
this is gonna be a long year.
I'm redoing them.
I'm so weak.
You can! You can change your picks up to 5 minutes before the first game of the week.
First game is Thursday Sept.7.
You can change picks right up to 5 minutes before.
If I remember correctly you can change the confidence points 5 minutes before the Late games as well.
ahhh it isn't that bad....
We are just doing the easiest one...
I don't think I would have fun trying to figure all the point spreads in, that would be too much!
That was my system too. My office mate was a diehard Art Monk, etc., fan. She ended up buying me more lunches (the price of the bet), many more lunches, using this proven betting techique.
Well, it's not bad now that I've edited my picks.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else does.
ahh I just try to get on a roll for a couple weeks and let it go....
It's worked in the past :)
So I can't see other people's picks? No wonder that comparison board was awfully empty.
Thanks for the info.
Thank you much for the opportunity. Best time of the year is right now with football season starting.
You can thank IMTOFT
for contacting me and setting this up.
It was a blast last year. I hope we can get 50 people to join us!
Get the word out!
All right I'm in. Not sure about this weighted pool thing but it's worth a shot.
For those of you who have never played, join in. This is fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm In. You guys are going down!!!!
Joe Theismann's Shin will rule all!!!!
You owe me a new keyboard, I saw your team name and sprayed beer all over it!
why are you using yahoo and not ESPN? ESPN game can hold waaayyy more than just 50 people
I'm in. I will bring my complete lack of football knowledge to this group, as I have already done with my fantasy team.
"why are you using yahoo and not ESPN? ESPN game can hold waaayyy more than just 50 people"
I just went with what was done last year. Not very original, I admit, but it seemed to work out fine. I don't know if we got to 50 people last year, although we had 40+.
Thanks for the tip - we can do EPSN next year, especially if we fill it up this year.
Thanks for the ping, Mike...Da MightyVikingWarriors are in da house!
Just don't invite them to your boat :)
I signed up. I couldn't come up with a team name, so I came up with the thing I'd LEAST like said about me. ;-) It will be changed when I am in a less-strange mood... probably after the move :-P
Hopefully, I can get to it every week again this year. I'm in.
