      Finally! personal ...change the 'your name' box to match your vortex user name [/B](or put your vw name in brackets) so we can keep track of who to talk trash to.

      Spreads:

      Home...Spread...Away
      Tampa...-6.5...NO
      Final score... Tampa 10 NO 7
      Final score w/ spread... Tampa 10 NO 13.5
      Basically Tampa was "giving" points, so you add those to NO's final score to dtermine who won as far as the spread goes. Let me know if that makes sense.

      Participation rate is still pretty low (less than 15 people). The league is still OPEN! New players welcome.

      No issues here. Just had it pulled up and tried changing a pick and worked just fine.

      If you guys want the Sunday Ticket for a good price and don't want the dish: $99

      http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.htm...cId=1001215841

      buy the Madden Anniversary Edition with Sunday Ticket, watch all games on mobile or PC.

      no need to play the game for this to work.

      three guys at my job have this set up.
