Look at the bottom of the picks list. I guess I could also color it red or green at the end and show its running tally...

I'm testing adding a (n-n) to the win confidence, for example "Win Confidence ('8-8')" but the question arises when a game is picked at 50% on the nose. Do we call that a Win pick or a Lose pick for the Forum?

OK, if at least 50% of the Forum picks a win, it'll be marked as a Win pick. I'll add this functionality to the 2016 picks and show how it looks.

Here's how it would have looked last year.

The Forum picked 9-7, and got 10 games correct on the whole. I haven't colored the boxes because I don't have the time to rebuild the excel conditional formatting tonight, but you get the picture.

agree 50%=win confidence

cool beans on last year, chuck still would have one by his random choosing methodology, the tweezer method

random insert tweezers in nose and give a good yank

if it isn't grey, the Lions win

Depends. Is the glass half full, half empty, or just twice as big as it needs to be?

One day left to get your picks in everyone!

I still need tiebreakers from Lightningdan, and jaadam4 (if you want to play...thought maybe you're just joking with the 16-0 comment.)

I am going to regret this but since the Lions are at home, 1st game, as healthy as they will ever be

I am going to switch the AZ pick to DET for a 7-9 finish

AZ VS DET WIN

all other answers remain the same including tie breakers.
