    Yahoo Pro Football Pickem' 2011/2012
    It's that time again, ABW's 4th Yahoo Pro Football Pickem' 2011/2012

    Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Pro Football Pickem

    After you sign up or sign in, click Join Existing Group, then Join A Private Group and it'll ask for a group id and password which are:

    Group ID# (11010)
    Password (affil)

    When signing up - Your Pick Set Name - Whatever you want to call yourself.

    And you can pass that around if you want to get more people involved.

    And the group is AM Pickem, not the best name but you can make your own team name whatever you want.

    For those that haven't played. Very easy. You just pick who you think will win each week and Yahoo will keep and update the standings.

    Right now have it set to drop your 2 lowest scores in case you have a bad week or miss a week.

    Some tips learned from last year. Some people missed the deadline to get picks in. You can make picks up to 5 minutes before first game. You can pick the whole year, 2 weeks, whatever in advance and can always change them whenever you want, 5 minutes before the game. You can also set it up so Yahoo emails you a reminder.

    Past Winners
    2007/2008 - Kevin
    2008/2009 - Tie between Trust and meadowmufn
    2009/2010 - Guffy (how did that happen?)

    Any questions let me know.

  2. Thanks From:

    Alright, we got 6 so far. Still have over a month before the first game, so plenty of time. First game is September 8th, Thursday Night Game, New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers, last 2 Super Bowl winners, should be a good one.

    It's time Football starts in 2 days, first game is Thursday. Be sure to get your picks in. And still time to join if you haven't yet.

    Edited to add, just double checked and I have it set where you can make picks up to 5 minutes before each game.

    I'm guessing since you're in MN, you're a Vikings Fan? If McNabb plays like the McNabb of old, you might in the mix.

    Yeah, I'm a Queens fan. Hopefully he doesn't have a season like last year or we'll see Ponder in the mix. The Queens will be lucky to win 6 games this year.

    I really hope McNabb can pull a Favre this year.

    Popped in just to check on somethin. Only have to make my pick for the Thursday night game now (up til 5 minutes before game) correct? Don't have to do anything yet with any of the other games til 5 minutes before their game time, correct?

    Umm, don't even know who's playing yet for Thursday's game.

    Hope McNabb does well for you Bibby Had always liked him. Not sure what his personality is like now but how's he been with your press? While he was at Philly he was a jokester with the press.

    Good luck to everybody for Thursday's game

    "Only have to make my pick for the Thursday night game now (up til 5 minutes before game) correct?"

    Yep. There was also a choice 5 minutes before the first game of each week but I chose 5 minutes before each game.

    "Umm, don't even know who's playing yet for Thursday's game."

    It's a good one. New Orleans Saints playing Green Bay Packers in Green Bay. NBC, 8:30 PM Eastern.

    yeap, me too

    Thanks Trust for answering my question Yeap, that does sound like a good game.

    "I chose 5 minutes before each game"
    Think that's the best choice, too

    Went there just intending to make the pick for the Thursday game but ended up doing them all. lol Can always change them if I want later.

    Don't remember seeing it before but not sure I had even played the last couple of years with what had been going on. lol Has the lil exclamation mark on the left that gives you some extra info always been there? Don't remember seeing it.

    good luck everybody

    Yeah, didn't have one last year.

    Looks like everybody has their picks in already this week. And everybody was smart and picked the Packers to win. They're going to be a problem, have even more weapons than last year.

    I hate to see the Pack win. I think I hate them because of their fans.

    Besides the ViQueens having a putrid second half and blwoing a 17-7 first half lead to the Chargers, the week has gone well so far. I hope the same can be said for toniht's game and MNF.

    The Queens only had 28 yards of passing in the game and McRobbed was 6-14.

    By the way guys I added bibby to my tema name and is now Vikings Fan AKA bibby.

    So Bibby came in and said, Hey, even tho my Vikings might suck, my picks don't. Put the competition on notice going 13-3 this week, becoming this week's winner.

    Yes, this is where I give other people false hope. A feeling they have a chance to win. This week I will display my picking prowess for all to see.
