    Cool..can you let us know what kind of setting you will be using. They have straight picks, point confidence system and point spreads.

    I've played straight pick & spread - how do the confidence points work?

    Points go from 1 to 16 depending on how many games there are. Most times it is less...like 14 because of bye weeks.

    Example:

    If Detriot is playing Dallas and you think Dallas will kill em, you can give that game 14 in confidence points. If NE is playing Indy and your not sure abouot it, you can give that one a 1, 2 or 3..etc

    Its like that. Its pretty fun to predict those and sometimes to catch up or pull away from others you have to throw in some upsets and give those games some decent points in order to do it.

    OK IT'S TIME

    The Official BoltTalk Pro Football Pick'em League has been created.

    This is the only Official BoltTalk Fantasy League & there WILL be prizes for the winner. This is a pick'em league, so basically, you just pick who you think is going to win each week. Once you pick who you think is going to win, you assign points (called confidence points) to each pick based on how confident you are with your pick.

    In this league, you have until 5minutes before the start of each game to get your picks in (but remember there are some Thursday games later in the season).

    Also, the league has been set to drop your two lowest scores.

    This league will hold up to 50 people, so sign up right away. That sounds like a lot, but after 50, there is no getting in.

    You'll need a yahoo ID to join. If you don't have one, it's easy and free to set one up.

    Now, here are the details on how to sign up. Go to http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem and select "Join a Group". Enter the Group ID# (2956) and the Password (bolttalk).

    Let have some fun!

    We've got 20 people signed up so far, but there's room for more. The league can hold up to 50 total.

    I'm not sure what the prizes will be yet, but I'm going to find something good. So what are you waiting for? If you ain't already signed up, do it now. :tup:
