Babbs. Or whoever. Can you get some more players??? maybe PM or something?


It's getting late.

I also reminded everyone in the the game announcement. People who are just now tuning in are always surprised that Sunday is Monday in Melbourne. Just watch, Dallas will forget.  :whistle:

I am working on mine right now! :)~  I'll have it in the next 15 minutes or so.

Well Davy went out for me, since he made the first round I get 1 point.  :rofl_2:
 
Since i have him for QF, that would have been 50 points max.
So I lost 49 points off of my theoretical maximum.
The maximum points you can have if all your picks were right is 720 points.
Since I lost 49 my new theoretical max is 720-49=671.
