Would really like to see a rematch, Kurt Warner we are you ? That said have to go with the Rams and of course my Pats !!!!!! On a side note the Pats are one tackle away, that absolute snitt- show final play in Miami, from playing at home today. K C played great all year and deserve the #1 seed. The feeling around here in Patriots land is "can they win another huge game", especially on the road ? We`ll see boys, enjoy the games !

Thought I was picking home teams. But whatever wants to be done is fine with me. I had Rams-Chiefs and changed to Saints-Chiefs.

After the first quarter, the Rams looked like dead men walking. What a great finish.

I don't know what he originally picked, I only saw it after the edit...and after kickoff. What I saw and what is recorded in my spreadsheet are Saints and Chiefs. That's who we have to go with since I can only go with what I saw.

It was Rams and Chiefs. Ask Scott or someone else who saw. It was also changed back during the game.

I'm not doubting your original picks. But you need to look at this from my perspective. I didn't see your original picks. I've been busy since early this morning and I didn't get back home until after the first quarter 2as over. I started watching about 3 minutes into the second quarter. That's when I grabbed my laptop and recorded the picks that I hadn't already recorded. I saw the edit, but I allowed it. And I allowed it for 2 reasons (1) because I didn't see your original picks to know what they were and (2) your edit was time stamped before kickoff.

I also have to look at your intention - who you really thought would win. You truly believed the Saints were going to win, right? You made the comment in your edit that you were going to go with both home teams. You can't say after the game you want to go with your original picks because someone pointed out the edit.

I'm trying to be fair to the other players involved. I don't care either way. If I win any $, I've committed to donating it to Safe Haven anyway. But if the other players agree that your Rams pick should count, I'll change it back. I'll let them chime in on that.

I told you I had a screen shot through PM. Why post rules David. Guess I can change up till gametime. Saints win I lose, and if Rams win I lose. I made my change back while the game was going on so you know to! I didnt change it AFTER the game.

You can ask Leon if there is a history of edits stored anywhere. If so, you might be able to retrieve the original message.

A rule is a rule. Once you make a pick, you are locked in.

Yes!!! Aweome idea. My intention for switching 10 minutes before the game was I wanted to go with home teams. I did think the Rams would win though. I never read the rukes as I thought you could change your picks up till kick off or if David says closed for picks. So, my bad in that. Original picks were the Rams and Chiefs. Not that this is a big deal, but come mon man.

Your edit time shows 5:20pm CST. That was either after the game or right as it was about to end. I don't know exactly what time the game ended.

Again, I'll let the players decide. Whatever they think is fair.

Edited to add: or if Leon wants to decide, I'll trust his judgement.

Default Contest closed

CONTEST CLOSED. Everyone will get their money back. I am really sorry for all of this. It is my fault. I tried to do something nice for the doggies and have a little fun at the same time and I get several PMs questioning my integrity. The last PM even questioned who gets the tax credit for the donation. Seriously? No good deed goes unpunished. Everyone will get a full refund this evening. At least the doggies get the $55 that came out of my OWN POCKET! I guess I should give someone else the tax credit for that too.

Don't want money back, but I do want you to follow the rules. Again, if Leon can see original post it will clearly shows Ram-Chiefs. Why don't you just void my pick because I changed it (before game time) which is against the rules. Problem solved and move on, instead of all your time spending on this.

You're the one that didn't follow the rules. The rules say not edits. But I'm the bad guy here? I allowed the edit because the game hadn't kicked off yet and somehow this gets turned around on me. Go figure.

I did move on. I moved on last night when I made my decision, and it was final. You keep sending me PMs and I really don't have time for all this. Easier to close the contest and give everyone their money back.

I think that I would have been in first place no matter what the picks were for BeanTown.

Please keep my entry fee and donate to the puppies.


Thanks.


Jeff

Please keep my entry too and donate the money. Sorry this had to end. Nevertheless, I'm still going with New England to win it all.)

Thanx for the effort and yes it was fun. No need for a refund here, please keep it for the dogs. That Pats/KC game was THE wildest game I`ve ever seen and that`s saying a lot considering the Pats/Falcons Super Bowl. Well, enjoy the game boys. For me feeling Pats 28 Rams 24. On a side note, Rams opened at a -1 and by morning it had moved 3 pts to currently Pats a -2.

Exactly my thoughts. Brady wins his sixth Superbowl and calls it a career. Not too bad for a sixth round pick.

That he is at the top of his game again, it seems, at age 41, is astonishing. He was throwing lasers yesterday.

Brady looked tremendous yesterday, and although he certainly can retire, he very well may play again next season, even if he wins the Superbowl. His off season regimen is amazing, and he appears to be ageless.

I think he hangs around for a couple more years at least. Right now there is no successor to him, and I don’t see him leaving without someone putting a bit of pressure on him.

Gisele has to be worried about his long-term concussion risk and a while back she gave an interview where she spilled the beans on one or more the team had not disclosed. (Now if every team had KC's pass rush, he'd have nothing to worry about.) He really has been doing this much too long for his own good already. It's time for him to go.

Yes, sir. A donation of $110 has been made to Safe Haven. I think everyone agreed to donate their entry fees, but if I overlooked anyone and they want a refund, just send me a PM and I'll refund your money via PP F&F.
