  1. 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!!!

  2. 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.

  3. 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,…

  4. 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.

  5. Why can't the commissioner of a private group add a member's picks after the deadline?

    One of my members attempted to enter his picks around 7:20 CST, about 20 min before the deadline. However your site did not save his picks, and he ended up sending them to me (still before the game started). Now I have no ability to add his picks, even for the rest of the weekend.

    In past seasons, the commissioner could modify the deadline. If that were still in effect, at least I could change that and add his picks so he wouldn't be locked out of the whole week. Why did that setting change?

    In general, I think the…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Make the spreads all half point spreads

    You should make the spreads all half point spreads. If its 3 it should be 2 1/2 or 3 1/2. This would eliminate ties which really penalize people. There should be a winner and loser. The only other solution would be to give half credit for ties. Also once a line is final its final.

  10. 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.

  13. Mistake in Packers-Vikings game

    You need to correct a mistake -- the Packers-Vikings game was a straight pick'em, and it ended in a tie - which should mean a push for all. But you have awarded Minnesota picks with a win and Green picks with a loss -- that is not correct.
    Please fix this on Monday -- or this poor commissioner will have plenty of explaining to do, with no real concrete answer why. Thanks.

  17. Pushes

    Nobody really likes'em (except bookies) and a lot of ideas are out there. Looks like the most universal agreement is to make sure all spreads are xx.5. How about leave it up to the commish in the settings, with the following option:
    No-push option: for games with non-zero whole-number point spread, add 0.5 point to (pick one): (a) home team (b) visitor (c) favorite (d) underdog.
    In the case of a 0.0 spread game ending in a tie, leave it as a push, and/or let commish also decide how points are awarded (none, everyone, half-confidence, whatever.)
