    Anybody Want To Play NFL Pro Football Pick Em' This Year?
    http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem

    It's real easy. First you need a yahoo id, if you don't have one, takes about maybe 2 minutes to get one, I just got a new one.

    We can set up a group and you can login and just pick the winners each week. Just click on the team you want to win and Yahoo does the rest, real easy. See who knows their football.

    Maybe we can even get some merchants to maybe get some prizes to the winner Just throwing that out there.

    Alright let's try it, let's see if this works. I went ahead and set something up:

    http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/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# (13142)
    Password (abw99)

    And the group is ABW, and I'm Trust there too

    And after you're in, you just click on your nick and the weeks will show up and you can click Edit under picks to pick your teams. And you can pick weeks ahead if you're going to be gone a week or something.

    Still have over a month, so time for more people to sign up.

    Cool we have 5 now. And I guess you're a Brady fan I think he's going to have fun this year with his receivers and I have them going to the SB this year.

    Going to be hard not to take Brady as the top QB this year. But in my heart of hearts, I can't see Manning laying down this year just because he won last year. He's a competitor.

    Tom Brady is my favorite Boston athlete of all time. He is the man, and now he actually has a few recievers to throw to. It should be interesting to see what he does with top notch talent at the reciever position.

    Well, when I "view" your picks, it looks as if you've selected all the favorites which on its own could be a good strategy, but maybe that's just how the interface looks?

    I think it's the interface. I just made those picks when I first started it to test it out and will likely change them up before the season starts.

    What I'm seeing, under Favorites I have 7 selected and under Underdog, I have 9 teams selected. And elsewhere I saw the bold teams are supposed to be the home teams and somewhere else I saw it was the favored team, still have to check that.

    I just tried checking yours and I can't see who you picked. It says complete and then under Pick Status I see -- and under Favorite they're all bold. And all the ones I see that are bold for you are bold for me.

    edit to add - Bold is the home team, just checked.

    Compare http://www.nfl.com/schedules?seasonT...ason=2007#Week

    to the bolded teams.

    So in the interface they have it labeled wrong and they have all the home teams which are bolded under - Favorite

    HAHA, touche. Mangini is a very solid coach that has that team on the path to success. The Jets scare me once they get a big time QB.

    Sorry, with the NY in your name and your dislike for Tommy touchdown, had Jets fan written all over you, I apologize for making such an awful judgement call.

    Im actually rooting for the Falcons to make the playoffs this year after all the crap that the fans have had to endure throughout this Vick Saga.
