      Bump. Im going to shut down the 7th annual page and move it from my feed.

      Looks like we have 13 players... pretty much all regulars. League is still open though. Newcomers are welcome to join.

      Man, I haven't been on Vortex in a while now. This change is sweet, but now I can't use missing picks on Wednesday night as an excuse for why I suck.

      I'm taking it all. I've got secret deals going with the replacement refs to throw games. Of course I'm not gambling any money, just looking for Vortex fame.

      Haha! The situation with the repalcement refs will be interesting.

      We've got a good roster of players so far. I have to say...I enjoy running this every year, if only because it brings some of you back out of the woodwork.

      I've been trying to figure out if being a ref really is that difficult, because some of the calls the replacements have been making blow me away.

      Just a quick heads up... for some reason, CBS reverted everyone to their full name in the league. To swap it back, click personal and then change your name in the first box to your Tex ID.

      I like the adjustments you've made to the game. I'm back in. I'm gonna try and not take it too serious this year. Let's see if I can make it a least half way without getting too far behind the leaders.

      Picks made. It's hard to go off the preseason so lets hope I've guessed well.

      I missed on a ton of games, but apparently putting the big points on the right ones helps ALOT. I also made my picks in under 3 minutes and never looked back. Hmmmm.......
