Saints by 7 - By the end of the 1st qtr of NOLA/Philly game, it became obvious they're going all the way. Colts by 3 - the curse of Vinatieri begins. (I swear I didn't copy offa Spitztengle.) Vinatieri - 9

NFL Pick'em - Division Round Edition

I don't get the spread thing. Since Seattle won by one, there is no margin of error? But for the Pats there is 12 point margin of error? I'm not complaining about the rules, just want to make sure I understand them. (I had the four winners and Philly by three too.)

NFL Playoff Pick'em

wow, you are the first person to pick either team from New York. I'm kinda on the fence re: Eagles/Giants. NYG have a very good chance and someone could pick up some ground in this pool with them. (Is it possible to change picks until, say, two hours before kickoff of first game?)

Thanks for stepping up, apoch. Indy by 6 Seattle by 3 NE by 9 Philly by 3. Hmm, boring picks. Upsets come next round.

Yahoo Pro Football Pick'em Final Results: [standings inside]

There was a time around week 7/8/9 where I thought I wouldn't be happy unless I had the trifecta trophy .... both the Spofi pick 'ems (spread & confidence) and MetaChat. But, just MetaChat and two SpoFi 2nds feels pretty good too. Makes up for a crappy fantasy year. Congrats, NoMich.

Yeah, no big deal if people see who we pick ahead of time. Email is too complicated. If you just copy off my paper, you won't win anyway.

I see you changed one of the running back positions to a flex position. Thanks. Can we consider shortenign the bench too? In such a deep league, it's nice for there to be something on the free agent list besides kickers.

Greetings...I'm 'Grand Theft Neocon'. (rainbaby is the Badonkadonkers.) In previous years, we have limited the running back and bench positions since the SpoFi league is so deep. Maybe one starting RB (plus the flex) and 3 or 4 bench players?

Fine. I'll grant you "two" (slimfire and gr8) this: nbxsportshow is getting a little better, this one has some semblance of sports interestingness buried in the mounds of crap. But you have posted these self-links to your silly flash movies four times before, and you've been asked to stop every time. The truth is this could be the greatest link ever but it would still be against our rules and would be deleted. No self-linking is sorta the prime directive. Can't you even try to have some respect for our community? You obviously think there's something of value here since you won't leave us alone...if you'd just contribute something sincere, you could put your stupid flash site in your profile and get plenty of traffic that way. Instead, you just have flaunt the fact that you're an asshole.

Swing and a miss

Elsewhere, the Diamondbacks (seemed to) deliberately plunk Vinny Castilla to block his opportunity to hit for cycle in the Nats first ever home opener. I haven't watched a whole lot of baseball since Peter Angelos tarnished the Orioles Way. I hadn't realized how utterly lacking in class the game had become.
