Yeah I agree Sid it is fun to do them, but 2 reasons why I like the numbers we have now is 1- if we had them every week a lot fewer people would enter as they wouldn't have the time and the top couple in the rankings would just be the ones that enter each week. Then 2- if we overplay them the novelty and excitment and can guarantee would wear off. Doing it for the main tournaments as we do now is perfect in my eyes as with Pick ems you have to be around EVERY day and not everybody can do that.
