  1. Defense/Special Teams Scoring

    Looking to have a rule change implemented for 2022. Mid-season 2021 might be too much to ask… Last night the Dolphins scored a defensive touchdown. No problem with the direct scoring with that for the Dolphins Defense. However, the Ravens Defense got dinged for giving up points scored against it. I think we should change the rule from Total points scored against the team to “Special Teams points scored against plus Offensive points scored against.” This would more accurately reflect on the position rostered as Defense/Special Team. What do you think?

  12. Sony Michel to Rams

    I was mildly surprised that the Rams spent some draft picks on Sony. I would've thought they would've picked up a veteran RB looking for work and save the Draft Capital
  13. QB draft question

    Any chance you can broker a trade w/ #3 and get some value in return? You may still be able to snag Lawrence at 3. Otherwise, other options at 3 are still good.

  18. Hi Walter Consistently over 50 entries per year. Last year was 53 due to Covid - 2019 was 72 participants. Currently 11 paid in and I see another 5 logged onto our pool site. Many come in this week and next. I am confident of similar numbers to past few years. Yes, multiple entries are allowed. Cost is 25, not 20 and no other fees. However, if everyone loses early, we offer a ROUND 2 to the pool for re-entry after the winner in ROUND 1 is crowned and paid. Pool's been in existence at least 9 years Let me know.
