I decided to get started early this year in hopes we can get a little more participation than last year. In 2013, we had 17 entrants and 13 actually participated for the entire season. But in 2014, that number dwindled down to 5 which is the minimum number of entrants ESPN will allow to create a league. And last year we upped that to only 6 participants. So, once you have joined this year's edition please pass an invite early and often to as many people as possible who you think might be interested in participating.
Same rules as last year:
In conjunction with selecting which team will win, you are challenged to assign a Confidence Value to each game. The higher the confidence you assign to a game, the more points you will earn if you have selected the winning team.
You receive the amount of confidence points that you assigned to each game for which the winning team was correctly selected.
Your season-to-date point total is displayed on the group page and is updated weekly.
Any FOL member who is interested in joining in the fun is more than welcome. If you would like to participate, go to:
Once you have logged in and are prompted to join a group, use the following information:
Group: FOL Pick 'Em
If you encounter any problems completing your profile or joining our league please let me know by either posting on this thread or sending me a PM.
The first week of action is Saturday, September 3 and your entry must be submitted prior to the first kickoff at 11:00 a.m. CDT. If you're as forgetful as I am, opt for the weekly reminder from ESPN at the beginning of the enrollment process. They'll shoot you an email a couple of days before to remind you to fill out your weekly entry.
Again, please pass this along to as many people as possible - the more the merrier.
Good Luck to all!
