    FYI - first week of the challenge is for June 3rd... then there is a 2-week break until the second week (June 10th only had 3 games).

    I've got 4 weeks of the pool into the system so far and will chip away at the remaining weeks as time permits.

    Countdown is on to get your first round picks in - games start this Saturday.

    If you are not a site supporter, now would be a great time to look into it... any help is greatly appreciated!

    Early reminder that Week 2 deadline of this FREE to enter, WIN $ WEEKLY contest is this Saturday.

    @akslop took the Week 1 spoils.

    If a man speaks in the forest and no woman is around to hear him... is he still wrong?

    Reminder to get your picks in before Saturday morning, the break is over and we have weekly picks uninterrupted until the pool is over at the end of the Summer.

    Assuming I get the weekly schedules in place in time :rolleyes:

    Last week for the pool!

    FYI - KC vs Houston game is postponed until October so no score will be input for this week... has tie-breaker implication so everyone should take that into consideration and adjust.

    Cheers,

    Regs.

    Yes, everyone as I'll be updating the points field directly in the database randomly after this weekend.

    I may have forgotten to mention that in the rules for this pool, apologies if I did.
