Sweet 16:

6 Mercer Boy

I thought I would be last...luckily one of those tride and true Tubbies decided to join me in my pitiful prognostication purgatory...

Looks like SF and ARZ are getting picked against without abandon for the next 7 weeks! :-?

What's more disgusting is Pick 3. Every week I get 2 out of three games right. I missed pointage by 1 this time! :~( :~( :~(

Why is this game so cruel to me? !+)

I agree, but I think I got it figured out now. got some points in week 5. if I my new strategy gets me some points this week, I should have a top 10 finish. As I had the big goose egg after week 4 top 10 would be good in my rookie year.
You could think of government workers like teenagers. You pay them an allowance, but do you get any work out them? They eat the food, put their feet on the furniture and complain loudly whenever they are unhappy.

The strategy that seems like it works the most would be to pick the winner of all three games! !+)

To me, the point totals are not as important as picking the winner because you can normally figure out what the general trend of scoring will be in each game (good d's and bad o's low, bad d's and good o's high). Add to this that everyone else knows the same thing, so most of the time the projections are fairly close from person to person (unless someone really goes for broke).

As I said, I have been very close every week but have always gotten two winners out of three. That's 10 wasted points each week! Those points would have vaulted me into pointage twice if not three times already.

That would be correct. however have tried 5 completely different methods for picking my scores and winners. I hope the last method I used to get a 5th place score last week continues. If not, I still have no clue on how to play this game to score consistantly(sp). I am trying different ways to be more accurate with my picks. I guess I should wait another week or two before I talk $h!t about doing well, especially since I did so horriblely the 1st 4 weeks (best I could muster was in the 80's). Hopefully will be able to take again sunday evening. I'M OUT!!!!!!!!
