Welcome to the 2014(a) Play of the Week Contest.

This will be my last Contest for a while, as I need a break.
~ My home desk top computer is down until further notice with viruses
~ My work Computer has blocked Covers.com when I use Netscape Navigator, & when I use Safari, I cant utuilize the size/fonts/graphics
~ My ipad is unable to post a new weekly thread to my satisfaction
~ Im on the Board of Directors for my kids' Little League this year, which will require even more time than coaching.

 

With that said, this Contest will be 25 weeks, posting ONE pick per week in the Weekly thread. 

You need a MINIMUM of (20) picks to stay eligible.  Once you have missed (5) weeks of picks, your name will removed from the standings.

 

GOOD LUCK!

Hey Bake, if it's too much of a bother, just don't run it man. I can only imagine how time consuming this must be and I noticed nobody stepped up wanting to take it over. If it's not enjoyable for you then just take a break now, I'm sure everyone understands.

 Thanks Ganda.

Let's see how it goes.  Honestly, there are about 20 of us "regulars" who take the time to put in picks each week, and if these guys enjoy it, then it is worth it to me.

Maybe the Forum needs a break from this Contest until someone can spice it up a bit with their personal flare, like daily picks.

 

Until then, I hope you continue to post in here bro!

Honest engine .. I would love to do the contest..but my friggin memory is fading lately...I lose my friggin gloves between the back door and the garage...I cannot find my extra set of keys to my 67 Vette ... I just got home from the gym and this the 3rd time n 2 weeks I have left my glasses in the dressing room...I could go on & on .. seems like this just started happening in the past 4/5 months ... lately I cannot remember the way to the Chiropractor frm the gym ... I haven't posted many picks lately cause I friggin forget to pick and my 2 locals have to call me or come to the gym or my house....its disturbing.

Actually MrFrank, I will do like last season and accept ur pick, but you are capped at +200 units if it wins.

Players just can't go more expensive than -200.
