  1. Point System

    If someone forgets to put in for Thursday Night football they should lose the highest point total possible for that week. I had a lot of members complain about this last year. Thanks.

  3. Add bonus points in NFL Pickem

    When a game goes into overtime and you have the game as a 1 point confidence, add a 5 point bonus or something.

    Same for when your 16 point confidence game is the biggest blowout.
    Would make this more fun.

  4. 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).

  7. Games that end in a PUSH should be awarded a point to all those that make a pick for that game. The problem with giving 0 points for a PUSH

    Games that end in a PUSH should be awarded a point to all those that make a pick for that game. The problem with giving 0 points for a PUSH is that those people that forgot to pick that game don't get penalized when they really should be. I've been saying this for years and don't understand how Yahoo doesn't understand that this is a good practice. I've been commissioner of a league for 14 years and this has irked me for many years. Please fix this!!

  8. Pick'em Confidence Factor Scoring - Keep same number of total points each week

    Under the current settings, a pick'em league with confidence factors can have total weekly points raging from 136 to 91 points depending on the number of games played. When playing the option to drop the low week, the current scoring system punishes players who perform well in those 'low total' weeks since the starting point is 45 points lower than most weeks (1/3 the total points!). This issue can be resolved 1 of 2 ways:

    1) Every week is worth the same number of total points. If there are 16 games, 1-16 factors are used for a total of 136…

  9. More Flexibility w/ Commish Tools

    Two Things: 1. Allow for the commish to email the league. 2. Allow the commish to make league edits during season, such as change the deadline to when changes to picks are due.

  10. Make a tab to email league

    Would be nice to be able to email all league participants to keep communication open. The fantasy leagues all have it.

  12. Commissioners Tool for viewing Tie Breakers

    Please add a view for viewing the weekly Tie Breakers on a Group Picks page. The tableau, a simple data extracted from a week's picks, should show each players tiebreaker games predicted points and their high/low score predictions. After Sunday the view could show the Sunday game's tiebreaker picks, and after Monday the view should show both the Sunday and Monday tiebreaker picks. As it is now a Commish (or player) must view each players' picksheets and try to read the faded text that is the tiebreaker picks. This should be made much easier.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. On Pick'em make a column for the Maximum Points possible.

    On Pick'em, just adding the Max Pts Possible column helps determine what that Player can reach if all remaining picks are correct..

  17. 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!!!

  18. 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.

  19. 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,…

  20. 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.
