It's amazing that beloved time is almost upon us! Most NFL squads are well within 2 weeks of starting training camp. Also less than1 month (08/09/17 Hall Of Fame Game) before the 1st preseason kick off it should be time we begin discussing changes or new rules for the confidence pool. I though last seasons pool was a blast! Hopefully everyone will be able to see the whole thing through. I know there were more than one that really had a chance if winning but life demands took control. I really feel last years predecessor of this thread really helped iron things out and gave the official pool much needed structure. My biggest hope is that our former "Overlord" :notworthy: bean-tor will agree to keep up with tabulations. She did an absolutely smashing job ( :finbar: ) I do not see how improvements could be made in that respect. I think the rule set of last season was sound but I do remember some decent suggestions for amendments.
Excitement So Thick!

I'm in! Came up just shy last year; looking to improve this year.

My suggestion- remove the 25 point penalty for a missed thursday pick. Missing that pick already starts you off with a top-value loss for the week, I don't think there's need to add insult to injury.

Aww shucks, LABT! :cheers:

In all seriousness, though, stranger things have happened so I try not to be presumptuous.

I've been working a ton but I just had to pop in here.  I suppose it's time to buy a new monitor.  My two (now three) year old pretty much ruined it.  

I'll be back for a full season this time.  I think I was doing pretty well before I bugged out with only a couple of weeks left in the season.

So I have not seen too many suggestions on rule changes or addenddums. With the regular season quickly approaching I will assume that the structure of last seasons confidence pool will remain. I went back to last seasons unofficial confidence pool thread and pulled up the rules we had agreed on. I am fine with the way things stand but if anyone has a suggestion for a change that we all can agree onI would say now is the time.
I will start the "Official" pool thread this Wednesday as I believe this Thursday concludes the preseason.



If one misses Thursday =  loss of the highest confidence points for the number of games played that week.
If one misses picking a week = 25 points will be deducted from the total points
And the post season scoring format is to remain.

Post season scoring

Wild Card- 4,6,8,10 Points
Division- 5,10,15,20   "
Confrence- 20-25 "
Super Bowl- 50   "
