Thanks Rick and Mark for putting this together.  You asked about the set-up for 2012 and I wanted to comment.  My two cents is that with 26 games per week there is no need for all of the tie breakers.  Maybe two games with total score or something along those lines for tie-breaker.  The confidence factors only put luck into the equation and they are way too time consuming.  I hope that this helps.

GO OWLS!

The main reason for the tie breakers is that we ran into a problem before, and not having a clear cut system. This will allow for that to not happen again!

Thanks for the feedback on the confidence points!

This is consistent with others feedback as well, and we can look into dropping that moving forward next week.

personally i am not a fan of the confidence points or point spread system, make it simple like the march madness on TON (pick the winner, get a point) the tie breakers are a necessary evil, if we had a lot more people playing then maybe the confidence system would be needed but not yet

my two cents anyway

and thanks for arranging this regardless

It is a little more involved with the confidence points, especially with the number of games were picking but we'll see some serious separation later in the year. This week is fairly easy, hard to pick an true upset so we'll all finish relatively close.

Thanks for considering Rick.  I'm sure week 2 will become more difficult to pick and 26 games will test us.  The score of two games and other tie breakers will definitely be enough.
