I'm in it again. And, just so we can alleviate some of the confusion that occurred last season: The season opens on a Thursday night. Thanksgiving does fall on a Thursday this year. And it is a triple header. After Thanksgiving there will be weekly Thursday night games. Pay attention during hurricane season to see if games get moved to Saturday to beat the storm, particularly Miami. So, if you click on the reminder on Friday, it doesn't do you any good the first week of the season or from Thanksgiving on.
Originally posted by Guru ZimI am in as "Don't trust this man". I am guaranteed to forget about the Thursday cutoff week 12 and I'll probably lose interest at that point.
But until then!
Assuming you're still alive in the league at that point, presumptuous fool!
I'm in, even though I'm historically horrible at these games. The Selcaro shall live to see Week Two!
Remember, this is the spread league, not the suicide pool. Even 0-16 the first week doesn't completely bury you. As for the suicide pool, this season's 'Everyone picks this game because it is so obvious and then blows up in everyone's face' game for Week 1 should be San Francisco at Arizona, as it will be an easy way to get the Arizona pick out of the way early and picking against the 49ers has been successful recently. Either that or Seahawks vs. Lions.
My Ciderbarrels will try to not come into last place.

In terms of snow potentially causing people not to get to the game: They've had Super Bowls in Detroit and Minnesota, with Indianapolis coming up. Snow is a definite possibility that could cause roads to be hazardous or problems with flights.
