    Lot of people, myself included, appear to be headed south on the Aints ship.

    Shoot me a bm with your pick for a 4 o clock game or later. And I will consult with the "poobahs"

    Good job to everybody who didn't take the "obvious" New Orleans pick. Oh well, fun while it lasted...

    If Baltimore and Miami lose. It'll be down to 2 teams. @katznotdogs and @MastaaaGrillaaa And everyone else who lost this week will be re-entered to figure 3-10th place.

    PLEASE LET MIAMI OR BALTIMORE WIN !!!

    God damn Oakland. If Indy loses and there's a clear winner on week 2 out of 60+ guys that's gotta be some kinda record. Amazing week!

    I've never seen anything like this. Wow. I'm probably just going to create a new yahoo league for the57 of us that were eliminated this week instead of keeping track on a spreadsheet. I'll post info first thing tomorrow morning.

    Lol.... That sure seems to make the most sense. The only issue would be that everybody who tapped out today that went into the "new league " would get back the full field of teams to pick from again. Given that's it's only week two I don't see that as any kind of issue.

    Yea, i will clearly state that the 2 teams they have already chosen will not be eligible. Hopefully everyone will honor this rule. But it'll be easy to check if anyone used the same team twice.

    Also, just wanted to give everyone an update on the missing pick. I thought last year, that people who forgot to make their selections could go ahead and pick a team that played on Monday. So since I never stated clearly that games lock at 1:00, I decided to give @Thirsty_Moe a chance, and select a team that played in the 4 o'clock games or later, and I would then go and change the setting for week 3, to allow players to change their picks up to when their game starts. He bm'd me his pick of Baltimore. Then all hell broke loose, and everyone lost.
    So as I set up the new league for 2/3-10 place. I went to change the setting to lock when each game starts, however It would only gave me 2 options for the pick deadline.
    A. 1 o'clock on Sunday
    B. 5 minutes before the first game of the week (which would be Thursday night). (I don't like this option)

    SO, going forward. The picks LOCK at 1:00. Please make them before then. No exceptions.
    Cheers
    Dan

    In case it's easier - there must be a way to reset the league we were already in.

    In another of my pools we had the same situation (actually in that one everyone lost) so we just started over for week 3.

    I thought about that. But I want to keep track of which teams were taken in the first 2 weeks. I know its only 2 weeks, but it makes things more interesting down the road.
    PLUS, there might still be 2 teams left (if the colts win).

    That said...
    Rule 1 - Get your picks in before 1:00 !!
    Rule 2 - Don't select a team that you choose in weeks 1 or 2

    Ill be glad to never have the chance to pick the Saints again this season. The other two teams were on the road, they were 10 point faves at home. I kept saying to myself i dont like this pick and still couldnt say no. At least everyone else besides the two left picked wrong as well haha

    Well, after picking Dallas in week 1 (should have been a loss if it weren't for the refs/Eli), and the Saints in week 2, I'd like to apologize in advance to any fans of the team I pick in week 3 of the re-do pool!

    Congrats to @katznotdogs for the week 2 win! See the rest of you in the re-do pool!

    Hopefully this cancels out all the jinxes for you, @MastaaaGrillaaa !

    I like this idea. I'm also gonna send one. I think we should all send one since the rest of us collectively suck.
