LOL!!!! Dammit @leggo PE & @thejulie_PE. Please go back an re-read my very first post with instructions. Must be something with structural engineers and not reading specs.
The first game of the week (i.e. TNF) most certainly does NOT have to be 16 pts. Yes if you miss that game, the system automatically assigns you 16 as penalty. But you can rank the games however you see fit. Leggo, when you first go to your picks, the top game doesn't have to be your 16 pointer. You can drag & drop that game to the bottom and then that game would now be 1 or 2 pts. So you don't just pick the team to win in the order that's pre-assigned based on game time. You order them anyway you want and the points assigned will change sequentially. Does that make more sense? I think that's the reason why Leggo is tanking. Because I can see how she's allocating point values and it was very confusing. Which is why I asked earlier on if you had any questions.
