    Gentlemen good morning... the day has arrived!...

    Need your help, looks like neither of those web tv players have got the draft today so I will have to make do with some online radio coverage. Have any of you found a link to a radio station with live coverage?, ofcourse it needs to work outside the USA as that is where I am.

    C'mon AJ let's have Landry!!.

    I know, I thought the same thing... but rarely do things play out according to logic. I dunno... just felt I had to do something different.

    OK! I have some unofficial results here.

    First I want to thank everyone that participated. Regardless of how you scored here, I hope you enjoyed this contest because I know I appreciate everyone participating.

    This scores are unofficial right now, because I plan on going back and double checking the math, but I do think they're going to prove to be accurate.

    There were 175 points possible, but to score that high, you'd have to predict everything perfectly. Now here are the scores ordered from lowest to highest.

    dang...good job everyone. :icon_toast:

    What happens to the score if instead of picking the correct number slotting, we went with correctly pairing the team with the player? Can the winner of that get the alternate prize?

    That's an interesting idea. I know I picked J Moss to Denver @ 21 and R Nelson to the Jags @ 17. I got the teams right, but they traded picks so I didn't get the full points.

    Ok, here are the official results. I have gone back through and checked all of the math and there were two mistakes. I missed Chispa's sure things post, and I didn't account for turbo_turtle's pick of Greg Olson at 27 whiched earned him 1 point.

    Here are the official results.

    Dayum!! This is a shock! :nana_dance: :icon_party:

    I'd like to thank my mom, who raised me to stay true to my convictions, my wife, who condones my Bolts (& football) obsession, my daughter, who relinquishes both the computer & phone line to me...you get my drift. :icon_biggrin:

    So Thumper, since I'm in Virginia & can't make it to a preseason game, what's my alternate prize?

    Thanks, nickel! It was a close one. I had the Fins taking Quinn, so it didn't work out so well for me, either. Not sure just what Cam's thinking is there, but if he made the choice, I'm glad he isn't our HC.

    Where's Thumper today? Nursing a sore head? :icon_toast:

    I'm sure I'll have some other contests. BTW it was ticket, not tickets. I only have one seat. Since I'm not in San Diego this season, I'm sure I won't be using my ticket every game, so expect that I'll have other contests to give them away on THIS website. :tup:
