Pro Football pickem missed picks
When a player misses the Thursday game in pro football pickem they only lose 1 point rather that the highest total for that week. THey should lose 16 points (or whatever the highest total is).
The 8 point loss seems fair. Or half of the total # of games would be more accurate actually so let's modify your suggestion there.
yeah, you shouldnt benefit from being forgetful and missing a pick. Maybe there is a good reason , but still, you missed the pick. You shouldnt get to choose the points after the game. that is unfair to the rest of us. Fix this! it just happened in week 1. This is not right. Dont you want to make the game fair?? At least make them lose the mid point of the total points.

THIS. IS. DRIVING. ME. NUTS.
I have been burned on this now 5 of the 8 weeks already this season. PLEASE MAKE THOSE MISSED GAMES WORTH THE MAX POINTS INSTEAD OF 1.

there's a guy in 1st place in our league has missed 12 games purposely he's bragging. so he lost 12 pts.. he did not play n.y.g. vs. phil. he lost 1 pt. 7others lost from 5-13pts because they played it.i thought you're supposed to play all games.

Maybe I don't understand but in our league you miss out on the entire week, which no one in our group thinks is fair. Last year we had 5 minutes before each game. This year as a result of a mis stroke we have to pick by Thursday or loose the entire week.
I'd settle for an 8 point loss on a missed Thursday night pick or something right down the middle. We've had complaints about this in our league as well.
