It's in the rules thread (first post) that a tie is a loss in the Meltdown. The scoring isn't in on that game yet.


Man, I was all frustrated that I lost and just took this at face value, but when I read the rules, it said quite the opposite and now I'm stoked :-D

Really, it makes more sense this way, since it isn't an "incorrect" pick of a winner (or at least I support it because it helped me ;-) )...


Menyak and I talked about it and decided for this season it would count as a win, even though the team didn't actually win. So Menyak updated the rules today (Tuesday) to reflect it. When I made that post above (Monday), it was accurate and correct at the time. Was going to shoot you and logan PM's tonight, so it seems I just have to shoot him one now. :-b

Don't expect it to be so nice next year though, Meltdown is a mean game and not for wusses! }:-) :-b

I kind of thought that was what happened :-D I think 3 of us got off the hook actually (might want to let The Captain know too).

Don't worry about next year, I plan to have like 13 picks left at this point in '09 :-]

Stupid McNabb had to make things interesting :*) :-S X-I

i wasn't so much annoyed at losing on a tie it was just that it was the eagles that did it to me. ah well i'm still alive with my one pick ;-D and in my other survivor pool as long as the giants win this weekend i have aligned the stars to play every team up against detroit for the remainder.

I'm cheerin' for the Texans, Jets and Chargers this week! There were a lot of ugly picks, but I think I'm relatively safe in picking against my Hawks (even though it's at home) :-o

It looks like all of us with 3 picks lost at least one game, so the new leader will be at two.

We are down to crunch time :-o
