6th place overall, 3 games back from the leader for the season. Within striking distance. :D

Question about the points Boone. Is it cumulative or game-by-game? In other words, should I start shaving points off games to lower my total of 33 or would that not matter?

Here's the answer from the vendor's website:

FAQ: I don't understand the "Recap" report - what is the deal with the Season Points & Season Record and why does it sort by Points?
Answer: This question has been asked many times. Season points represent the aggregate points selected by each player for tie-breaker games less the aggregate points scored in tie-breaker games. Let's see an example:

Joe plays weeks 1,2 & 3. He picks 44 for week 1, 27 for week 2 and 35 for week 3. His aggregate for all tie breaker games picked would be 44+27+35 = 106. Let's say that week 1's tie breaker score was 21-10 = 31, week 2 = 14-31=44, week 3 = 9-6 = 15 .... so 31+44+15 = 90. 106 (Joe's aggregate) less 90 (points scored) = 16. If Joe's aggregate was 80, his season points would be -10 (or 10 pts away from perfect). This point factor is only used to determine ranking when win-loss-tie record is the same for 2 or more players.

Note: At the beginning of a week, before the games have been played, but after picks have been made, the aggregate of tie-breaker games picked will reflect a slightly higher (by the amount of the current weeks tie breaker points) number than when there is a score to offset.

Last week, one step forward. This week, two steps backward. One step forward, two steps backward. Music please! One step forward, two steps backward. One step forward, two steps backward.

This is the dance routine that I have perfected in this game. Bah.
