what guarantee do you have for your pick for me to copy ?  If you are so sure about your pick then you should not be here playing for free.  Some day only have 1 or 2 games therefore the pick will be limited.  Wait until Saturday and Sunday then see if someone copying your picks.

Cover the picks so the leader cant protect his lead by hedging the bets.

Copying the leader will not get u ahead of him so copying isnt a good idea i thought of the same thing ,y dont they hide there plays till game time well ,it would make it easier for insiders to post there picks after the games over lol The only way it would work is to have a cut off time for each game ...say S.F is playing at 4.30 have a cut off at 4.20 or something and then post plays after the cut off ..Then the games at 7 or 8 do the same cut off times ,The problem from copying is what if the guy your following Pukes so do u ,if he wins u dont get any father ahead if he ahead of u So the only way to catch up is to capitalize on the front runner bad picks etc JMO Im like 7 game out of first hitting 31-15 -1 or something hitting 60 percent  the leqader is 7 wins ahead of me If i follow him ill never catch him etc Right jmo Hope it makes sense lol

there is no reason to hide picks. stop crying and act like a kid even though your an adult. the contests are free and people still complain. anybody who copies all the time will be a loser in the end.grow up .

who cares if they are copying your picks, chances are if they are copying your picks your already ahead of them and if you pick wrong they pick wrong. suck it up and just play the game :)

If you hid other's picks then how you know what the other played had picked in this way there would no way that i would even fool with a contest like this i believe that the way the site is doing it is the only way that a contest could be run like this , if you feel like posters are tailing you and copying the same picks which i believe that some are doing then wait until the last second to choose your'es that way you know that they cannot tell .I will say this though i believe that it is happening but there is no way that hiding picks until the games is over is correct though .

Too me if this site waited until the games was graded there's no way i would be in this one the only thing i would do differerent is as soon as the games begun then put up other players picks i believe that would be the only fair way for all to do it right .

They should hide the picks over the last couple of days of the contest to keep the leader from mirroring the two closest competitors behind him.

The COPY-KATS are cheaters that this contest allows. Hopefully ALL CHEATERS will ULTIMATELY LOSE in the END ! I AGREE that this kind of Contest that lasts at least three months SHOULD be in a HIDE PICKS MODE, at LEAST a HIDE PICKS OPTION !!!!!!!!! Until then a lot of CHEATERS will be RIDING the WINNERS COAT-TAILS ! republicon's would want to cheat while PROGRESSIVE LIBERALS would rather have at least the option ( public or private ) ha ha ! to HIDE PICKS. WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO HIDE OUR PICKS for a LONG CONTEST SUCH AS THE ULTIMATE RACE. UNTIL WE CAN HIDE OUR PICKS, IT'S NOT ALL THAT ULTIMATE !

Sometimes there are a limited set of games to pick from and of course you are going to have others pick the same as you, big deal. I say do not hide the picks, how does copying anyone's picks benefit anyone? What a petty subject to bring up. If you do not like the RULES of the contest, then why play or try to change the rules? Are you that bad of a picker yourself ? petty....

pjluio, hit it right on the money. if you don't like the rules DON'T PLAY. you have to be 18 years or older to play.the least you can do is act 18 instead of 5. such petty and stupid crap. i wish they would just delete this stupid behind question from this forum. my dumbass ex has more brains than this. and if she fell out of a boat , she still wouldn't hit water.

If they don't give you another pick, if one is postponed, then they're not going to hide the picks, both of which would make these contests better.

Hey Guys,

We won't be able to implement this feature in the upcoming race, but it is something we will get in production for the future. Not saying that all future races will have hidden picks, but at least it will be an option.
