    I logged in and it is only showing me 2020. Do I need to submit an entry for 2021?

    This morning everything was fine. Now it's a mess. It shouldn't be this much of hassle.

    I was able to join today. Are we playing the Standard method or Confidence method?
    I could not figure how to delete an entry if you choose Confidence method which I did just to see what it was about. Now my entry is locked in the Confidence mode.

    I'll give it a shot again even though it flies in the face of how I typically would look to strategize games...

    I've no idea what's going on with my account. Can't change my pass. I was assigned the longass ESPNFAN ending in73. Somehow it shows I have 3 entries and I can't delete any of them. At this point all I can do is only play one of them after week 1.

    I see we had a few that failed to get entries in...but if you are going to miss a week, I guess Week 1 is better than Week last...

    I miss the group spreadsheet function.
    I did bad but got my 6-10 correct so I’m in 8th lol
    Nashorn-only way to go is up. The misses did good though.
    Pompoms-only 1 entry counts in this pool
    Texanne-noted

    Yeah this is the way it usually goes. I think about my entries a little and move accordingly, she just picks and never moves for the points. Every year except last year she always makes me look quite foolish. Shameful.

    Reminder to get picks in...now that they put all the crap under Disney, it seems to have wiped out the auto-reminder email.

    Rain—-Now you have to protect that lead!
    This week is killer…..
    I liked the old format -where you could see the group spreadsheet and check scores on the games. The new Disney version not as good.

    Two weeks in a row that the late games have killed me.

    Sadly, it reminds me of the Vegas maxim..."there is STILL the Hawaii game" as people would chase losses.

    I was going to "like" this, but I do not like that the late games killed you ...or that Hawaii wasn't offered...so you could move it to your "confidence 10" line late.

    Once it gets down to a game or two, it isn't like you can shift very much. My 10-pointers are often earlier games anyhow...

    Sports bettors would have gotten the reference...we just don't have enough of them around these parts.
