Excellent. 12 players have so far indicated - publicly here or via email - that they expect to play. A very good start.
I was digging through the archives.
Year #1 (2004-2005): 6 players and Johnboy (from VA) won.
Year #2 (2005-2006): 12 players with Kickycan (NYC) winning.
Year #3 (2006-2007): 18 players. Chiso (TX) triumphed.
Year #4 (2007-2008): 19 players and Cowdoc (ID) took honors.
Year #5 (2008-2009): 20 players with Ragman (now of FL) getting the glory.
Year #6 (2009-2010): 27 players and Spendius (Northern England) won it.

Tico has never won.

I'm in.

Have to check my closet for dominant colours. Will match to team colours.

Or not.

I've made my first guesses, er, estimations, but I'm going to let them stew in the hot sun for a few days.

I got word earlier today from Spendius indicating that he might not have the time this season to play. I am normally a mild mannered individual, but I let him know that that was not going to acceptable. Not at all.
He, from his bar stool in Northern England, spent an inordinate amount of time last year trashing the game of American football and the men who play it and probably the cheerleaders and the fans.
And he won the season.
After an exchange of emails, Spendius has agreed to defend his crown this year.
He thinks he can beat back the "Revenge of the Yanks."
He moves into my scorecard in slot #13.

@realjohnboy,
But wait! There is more from our Useless Statistics desk! In {...} for each team is the number of points they scored/number of points scored against them and the +/- difference for 2009. If someone has the time to put some of the best and worst numbers in color it would, um, add a bit of color here


Here is the schedule for Week #1 - along with each team's record for 2009-2010.

@realjohnboy,
It's early yet for picks, but will mark my turf here.

@McGentrix,
I'm pretty sure picks are not going to improve with age.

Filled with bravado and kicking sand, the Sandhandlers say -

Min @ NO ....NO
Cle @ TB ....TB
Mia @ Buf ....BUF
Cin @ NE ....CIN
Car @ NYG .... CAR
Det @ Chi ....DET
Atl @ Pit .... ATL
Oak @ Ten ....OAK
Den @ Jac ....DEN
Ind @ Hou ....HOU
Ari @ StL ....ARI
GB @ Phi ....GB
SF @ Sea .... SF
Dal @ Was ....WAS
Bal @ NYJ ....BAL
SD @ KC ....SD 31-10

I did this in a more complicated way than I may keep doing, as I like to be able to look back and see who I picked, and where the game is..
Next time I'll skip the color.

@ossobuco,
Very nicely laid out, Osso. Very easy for me to read.

Remember, all, that you can post picks and then change them all the way up to the kickoff of the 1st game (in this case, Thursday 9/9). I buy white-out in a 55 gallon drum at the start of each season.

@realjohnboy,
The dots drove me nuts, I'll have to figure another way to leave a big space.

I'm remembering re the white-out..

I noticed you didn't say, "nice selections".

you could use Code brackets to line things up better...
Code:Min @ NO .....NO
Cle @ TB .....TB
Mia @ Buf ....BUF
Code:Min @ NO NO
Cle @ TB TB
Mia @ Buf BUF

but no other text formatting (bold, color, size) is allowed in Code...

@Region Philbis,
Thanks, I'll play with it. Goshdarnit, I hadn't noticed Code was in the reply page.

Another thing you might know, how do you do a line through a word to show you thought better of it? (Heh, as I might think of CIN)

Anyone know whether or ESPN website has their NFL expert (free) weekly game picks going to be available anymore? I know that they've put on their website a pay service that is Insider info, but for years they had a 5- or 6-person panel that provided picks typically by Thursday night/Friday morning.
