Don't give up on me now, Mean Mark. The Lock Club is definitely a big part of why I enjoy running the site. I can do a little more advertising for it and maybe we do lower the entry fee back down. I'm also overdue to make some design changes before next season. So maybe I can add something for the Lock Club to make it easier to play and track -- like I've promised over the years.
I'm not sure if I'll be doing the Lock Club again next year. Interest seems to be waning. This is the fewest players we've had in many years. Maybe it's getting stale. Maybe we should drop the fee back to $50. I don't know. We'll see.
lock pick Denver
I hope Mark is right Panthers come out on top but don't cover the spread. B man can come up and take it all if Panthers wipe them out.Thanks Mark for another great year with the lock club pool and Bman for another fun year. Good luck everyone
I finally got around to adding the tie breaker points. Pay attention to them because they might (or might not) be a useful aid to you as you come up with a strategy for this week's pick.
If your Superbowl team is still in the hunt you can potentially get 2 more wins added to your record if that team wins the Superbowl straight up and you also get the ATS winner right with your weekly lock.
Why make this difficult? I just looked at the season stats and realized that if I had picked the Panthers as my lock every week (and even lost the two weeks where they had byes), I'd be 12-7 -- exactly what my current record shows. :-D
B-Man's Lock of the Week: CAROLINA
So I was out of town last week and missed the fun first half. Not this week.
B-Man will be in attendance as the Panthers advance to Super Bowl 50!!! Look for me in one of the end zones, lower level!
I added up all our records and it came to about 126-102, around 55.5%. I'll be putting in the tie breaker points next week. If you want to see where you stand, just go to the Lock Club Pool and check out the overall standings there.
