I think they should just hide the top 50 players picks, because those are the guys that everyone is copying.  I admit I snatch a play here and there, but never all 4.  I mean if you're 15 back, copying other players ain't gonna get you to the top.

Who cares!!!  People do it all the time.  It is arrogant to think that you are the only person that has the beat on those games.  If you don't like people copying your picks, wait til just before game time.  Otherwise.......GET THE HELL OVER IT!!!!!

I find it a huge advantage to look at someone who is red hot then look at there picks and try and pick out a few you don't think will happen. I have no credibility on here but it has worked a lot for my picks for real money.

Hiding picks would make it easier for the website to cheat.......If they could install a feature where you don't see others picks until you make your own that would be cool.

The Site has no reason to Cheat and if you think they would then you should not be on here in the first place. I ask you why would you play the games if you thought you would never get the prize, these kind of people just quite frankly annoy the hell out of me.

   Obviously not going to wait until a few minutes before game time I like to try to get good lines which means early for the most part.If people want to copy,copy away..I might be 50 percent in ultimate race but do much better elsewhere.Like streak survivor,Or regular season picks.If you dont like people copying dont post and keep your plays off covers.

I know that no one copies my picks as i'm terrible but.. I think the way to do it would be if you had to have your picks in at a certain time everyday, I know the weekends would be a little different but.. it could be done.  Hide the picks until that time and lock the picks in at that specific time.  Then there is no copying and no way for any type of cheating to occur, the picks would still be visible for everyone to see but not until that time and of course no one could pick anything after that.  Seems like that would work. (example, 4pm or 5pm during the week and maybe 10am or 11am on the weekends)

Do it everyday with all your picks for the whole contest... no. But at times, it's what you NEED to do.



Ur a douche. minus units on eeverything you play... Dont brag if u actually suck. wow a hat and a cheque for a few bucks... ya blow and ur records show

From my earlier post...

Whether or not someone is copying the best will still win in the long run.  As far as a former winner copying to protect his lead....well how is that any different than a team running out the clock when they are up ?    If he was smart enough to protect his/her lead by doing that...more power to them ..I think it was smart.  If you dont want someone to copy your plays...play at the last minute like the wiseguys do. 
Bottom line...it doesn't matter how you get the info, just as long as its right?  I mean how many of you winners would win if you didn't get info from somewhere..be it espn.com, covers or whatever.   The only thing anyone should worry about is someones picks changing after the game starts!!   anything else...get over it...its all fair game!!
