The A2k NFL "Pick-Um" Game Is Back!

 
 
Reply Sun 26 Aug, 2012 12:02 pm
2012-13 will be our 9th season here - nearly as old as A2k.
Your participation requires no registration, little time commitment and if you lose interest, no pressure to keep playing.
Each week we post the schedule of games. There might be 16 of them. All you have to do is predict the winners. We don't worry about point spreads or injuries to players or what the game day weather will be.
It is a very simple game - which is why it has survived for years and, in fact, has attracted fans from numerous countries. That and the chatting.
Week #1 Schedule coming up...

@realjohnboy,
And it's about damn time, too! Just kidding ---- I keep seeing the fantasy fb thread pop up and hoped against hope that it was actually the pick 'um game. Thanks for doing this again, j. I'll help as needed.

@wandeljw,
I think Minnesota is in Minneapolis, don't ja know. The Vikings.

Players are encouraged to post picks early on each week and come back later with changes if desired. All games should be picked before the 1st game of the week.
