  1. You all REALLY need to consider upping the group max to either 150 or 200. ESPN, NFL have more than 100....

    I'm confused as to why this hasn't been done already. But I understand there may be variables I know nothing about - and some logistics that I don't understand. But the truth is, Yahoo one of the best, if not THE BEST, Pick'em games available. It would be even better increasing the max size. To be honest, 250 would be spot on. 500 is too many.

  2. We should be able to change the name of a our group, even AFTER initially opening the group.

    I run a few different groups under the same idea - It would be nice to be able to change or alter the group name AFTER registering the group. Why can't this be done? I always forget after the fact and get frustrated when I can't go back and do it. I dont like having to re-register, and get a new group number - ESPECIALLY after people have already started signing up..... please consider making this possible.

  3. Missed deadline and confidence points

    Our group has the deadline set to 5 minutes before each game with confidence points. When players don't get their picks in prior to the Thursday deadline, they still have the option to assign all points for the week so obviously the 1 point pick is going to go on the game that they missed. That doesn't seem fair as the people that actually get their picks in on time usually assign more than the 1 point pick. There have been several upsets on Thursday this year already and the people that got their picks in on time were down…

  4. Give the option to eliminate Thursday Games from the schedule for the season. Thursday night games are a pain in the butt and not needed.

    Give the Commissioner the option to not include Thursday Night games in the schedule. To have to have your picks in prior to the start of the Thursday night game when last minute decisions are still being made regarding the other teams injury report and such as well as last minute injuries and decisions, that's way too much time from submitting to the actual Sunday Games. Most of my league members hate the Thursday game option. Thanx for having such a great game as ProPickEm.

  5. 1 point for pushes

    Whenever there is a push for a game, everyone who makes a pick should get 1 point. Giving no points benefits those who forget their pick for that game and they SHOULD be penalized for forgetting. Please, please make this change. It doesn't hurt anyone to make this change.

  6. Make the number of people in a pick'em league unlimited

    There's no reason to really limit it to 100. Other leagues like Fox or ESPN are unlimited. If people want there to be a limit, there should be a tool for the commish to set it.

  7. Take away top points for forgetting!!!

    There should be an option to take away the top points available instead of just the 1pt game when someone forgets to make picks. That way the team that forgets isn't rewarded if there is a huge upset on Thursday and everyone else gets it wrong. You should never be rewarded for forgetting or simply not bothering to pick!!!

  8. If a person does not make a pick (say on a Thurs. night game) they should lose their highest points.

    So if someone fails to get a pick in on time, they should lose their highest remaining point total. Say there is an upset and everyone else had the upset team picked high, you are rewarding the person who did not get there pick in. That will obviously make the missed game their 1 point game. It should not be that way.

  9. During bye-weeks, keep the top ranking/value at 16

    During a week with a full slate of 16 games, the total amount of points you could earn is 136. During a week with 13 games, the best you can do is 91 points. This throws the whole season out of whack because you inevitably used your dropped points in those mid-season weeks, often despite picking fairly well. You often feel like, "What's the point?" when picking for a 13-game week.
    But if you kept the max ranking at 16 every single week, things would be more fair. For instance, in a 13-game week, start with 16, step down accordingly,…

  10. Add a "points lost" column

    I'd like to see a "points lost" column when viewing scores under "group picks", and have the option to sort the participants that way.

    This is how I determine who is really leading every week while the week is still underway. Because some participants can have front-heavy high confidence points, and others later in the day, this is a much more accurate way to determine where participants stand for the week...... and then i don't have to do all the math.

  11. You need a new tiebreaker.

    Tiebreaker should be total number of games correct. If it is still a tie, person who lost the highest confidence points game loses.

  12. Enable history like already exists for Yahoo Fantasy Football.

    With Fantasy Football, a history was enabled a few years ago- it included a retro-active history of all leagues related to the commissioner (me). This was and is enjoyable for all involved. I've also been commissioner of our Pick'em league for close to a decade now and would love to have the history visible in a similar way.

  13. Enable Default Picks

    Can there be an option to default picks? The commissioner can set up the league to default to home team/favorite/whatever. I've ran a pick 'em league the past few years through Yahoo and this is the biggest issue that I get when I ask for feedback from the league.

  14. Add a tiebreaker for the Season, not just individual weeks

    We have a trophy for our Pick Em, but some seasons end up with ties. We don't really need the weekly tiebreakers (and turn them off), but it would be nice to have a tiebreaker for the season to have only one winner.

    What we use ourselves when there is a tie is the person that won the most individual weeks is the overall winner. If this is also the same, then we have them pick the score of the superbowl.

    Something like this should be added to your system to make it more official for the overall winner.

  15. In "Pro Football Pick em"

    In "Pick 'em", there needs to be adjustable points in the game.
    It used to have it, but now it is just 1-16.
    (EX: I like making my most confident game worth 25.)

    Also, CBS sports has it.

  16. Email notification to Commissioner for new member sign ups

    It would be very helpful to commissioners if there is email notification like how Fantasy League works when a new member signs up.

    For leagues with significant number of members or potential members, it is easier to weed out troll sign ups at the time they sign up. Commissioners can immediately send them an email.

  17. Need tiebreaker clarity

    The current tiebreaker of predicting scores for two games does not make any sense. I cannot figure out what the tiebreaker is actually calculating. There must be a way to see why/how someone won the tiebreaker.

  18. There should be a way to set custom spreads

    There should be a way to set custom spreads or just use early spreads, new people don't understand the constant changes. So there should be a way to lock in spreads on Tuesday.

  20. PUSH RULES

    If there is a push, both sides should get a point. Currently no points are awarded for a push, which also benefits players who forget their picks. Let's level the playing field and award a point when a push occurs.
