Arrow NFL Pick'em Pool

I'm hoping to make a bit of a better effort with the pool this year round. The last few years there's only really been 2 or 3 people trying.

If you fancy it, sign up -

http://cheetahspool.football.cbsspor...g=FFB10_cbsinv

Password - lny10

It's a simple system, around Tuesday the games go up with the official spreads, you pick who'll win each game. You score a point for each correct pick.

If you forget one week you will score the same as the lowest persons score, minus one.

I know we have some NFL fans this year, so maybe this can be quite competitive

Hi Andy,
I have signed up as 'chuckwood5' but need to be invited by you to be able to access the league.

Okay, so you're signed up with CBS Sports. Can you not just use the password I gave to gain access to this pool?

No, keeps coming up with an error message that I cannot access it as i do not have permission:
Error This is a private fantasy league. You are logged in with userid 'chuckwood5', which does not have access to this league. If you think this is wrong, please contact the league commissioner and ask for an invite. To log in as another user, click here.

Wow, what a terrible first week, for pretty much all of us except Rob He picked the Skins over Dallas (annoying thing is, I thought they might, but wanted to hedge my bets, we win, GREAT! We lose, at least I score on pick 'em! ) had Cards over Rams (tbh, I thought I was picking the underdog thinking the Rams might sneak one) but we ALL got the Colts wrong

What the hell was the spread on the Saints Vikings, for Saints to win by 5 and not cover? Surely that's not right? That's one of the hardest games of the week, they can't have been more than 5 point favourites?

Well, I've gone against most of the percentages it would appear this week. I'm gonna be a genius or a moron...

Missed this at first, but I'm in now. I'm not 100% sure I understand the +s and -s on spread betting, but I've clicked on some boxes, it'll al make sense eventually...

If it says 'Cowboys +5' then imagine they are given a 5 point headstart (they are the underdog)

If it said 'Redskins -3.5' they would favourite and would need to win by 4 points or more to 'cover the spread'

Well I'm claiming genius I move into first place now regardless of the Monday night result.

It looks like Mrs S, Chuck and Hunter aren't picking, so I will remove them next week, unless they object?
