    Ok so here are the rules...very simple. Make your calls and wagers for every game every week. For each game you must wager points in order of confidence. There are 15 games in week four, for example, so this week you must wager 15 points on one game, 14 on another, 13 on another, 12 on another, and all the way down to 1 point. Make your picks straight up....no spreads apply. Highest point total each week wins. The person(s) with the most points must get pos repped by everyone participating in any given week and the person(s) with the lowest points must get neg repped by everyone participating in any given week. All picks must be in before the start of that particular day's games. In other words on Thursday the Browns play the Ravens. Everyone must at least call that game with a wager before kickoff. The rest of the week's games can wait until kickoff on Sunday. If someone misses a call for the Thursday night game (or a Saturday game when they apply) that game will count as a loss for the highest available point wager. So if someone doesn't wager the Thursday game this week but they wager the rest of the games then the Thursday game must count as a loss on their 15 point game. The most recent submission is official so if you submit your wagers and then change them, the only one that will count is your last (most recent) submission that occurred prior to kickoff for the day.

    I will keep track and post results of weekly standings and season standings.

    This weeks games are

    Thursday
    Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens

    Sunday
    New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills
    San Francisco 49ers at New York Jets
    Seattle Seahawks at St. Louis Rams

    Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions
    San Diego Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs
    Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans

    Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos
    Miami Dolphins at Arizona Cardinals
    Washington Redskins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers
    New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles

    How bout challenging people not to watch any of that sh*t? Not because the refs blew a call on a game that, in the grand scheme of things, doesn't matter at all.

    But just because it's a huge waste of 9 hours plus on any Sunday and the other times it's shown?

    GG since you missed the deadline for the Thursday night game the Baltimore game must be your 15 point game. For this week I will suspend the rule about neg repping the last place contributor since this is the first week we have done the challenge so it's kind of unclear what the rules are and no one really knows about it yet.
