I think the overall will be a better race this year, although i'll go against the grain and say that Belkin won't make top 3.

Top vote getters (discarding teams that voted for themselves although Dan has every right being defending champ, i just couldn't pick a clear winner so decided to be optimistic):

Belkin 3
Radioshack
AG2R
Europcar

Could anybody help count up our scores?


winning team: :Lotto:, :RadioShack:, :Movistar:
total score of winning team: 9708
winning rider: Contador, Valverde, Nibali
total score of winning rider: 2433
best rider points/ in scrubs (30-200k salary): Aru, Wellens, A. Yates
best rider points/ in duds (210k+ salary): Kristoff, Peraud, Quintana
highest total score increase 2014 vs. 2013 (only those under contract in 2013): Contador (1097=>2433), Gerrans (495=>1593), then a zillion people around 700 points or so (e.g. Dumoulin, Kristoff, Peraud), I'd propose not scoring the third place here
highest total score of drafted neo-pro: A. Yates, Valgren Andersen, Formolo

Milano-SanRemo: Kristoff, Cancellara, Swift
Tour of Flanders: Cancellara, Van Avermaet, Vanmarcke
Paris-Roubaix: Terpstra, Degenkolb, Cancellara
Liege Bastogne Liege: Gerrans, Valverde, Kwiato
Lombardia: D. Martin, Valverde, Costa
Giro: Quintana, Uran, Aru
Tour: Nibali, Peraud, Pinot
Vuelta: Contador, Froome, Valverde
WCRR: :taco: KWIATO :bacon:, Gerrans, Valverde
WCITT: Wiggo, T. Martin, Dumoulin
WorldTour: Valverde, Contador, Gerrans

(The most humiliating part is that I'm not even sure why I watch them all - mere months later had zero recollection of most those results outside of Grand Tour winners, the recent GdL, and of course that one downhill I spent shouting at the TV while jumping on the sofa.)

I may be able to add up on friday evening if noone else can or wants to do it before.

3/2/1 points for 1st/2nd/3rd picks again?

and the teams with the 3 closest guesses get points for the total score and winning rider score?

Indeed, but we used 4-2-1 points to award the real psychics. Thanks in advance!

  • Brent: I didn't watch it.  When I woke up the score was 21-0.  A team win goes in the W column for QBs. That's just how it is.
    October 14, 2019, 01:37:13 AM
  • Brent: The 49ers are on another level.
    October 14, 2019, 01:37:32 AM
  • Yeagg: The Steelers QB did his job. He played well enough to not lose them the game. The rest of the team played perfect
    October 14, 2019, 01:38:47 AM
  • indiansnation: to many eird losses today
    October 14, 2019, 01:43:37 AM
  • indiansnation: shure hell didnt think dallas was going to loose to jets
    October 14, 2019, 01:43:57 AM
  • Brent: Lots of individuals on Dallas.  If they pay Dak the $40M/yr that he wants,that will be the end of them.
    October 14, 2019, 01:45:58 AM
  • Yeagg: Dak has been playing well
    October 14, 2019, 01:49:03 AM
  • indiansnation: i agree with brent he is good but not worth that kind of money
    October 14, 2019, 01:53:50 AM
  • Brent: He's not $40M/yr good.  they they will have 20% of their cap tied up in one position.
    October 14, 2019, 01:54:56 AM
  • Yeagg: Honestly idk BooYah! about football. I just play fantasy football for fun
    October 14, 2019, 01:56:44 AM
  • Yeagg: I'm still trying to figure out how I have Dak Prescott, LeVeon Bell, Austin Ekeler, Phillip Lindsay, DeAndre Hopkins, Michael Thomas, Mike Williams, AJ Green, Darren Waller, Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Khalil Mack, and Blake Martinez on one of my fantasy teams and I am 3-3
    October 14, 2019, 01:59:13 AM
  • indiansnation: yeagg wait till aj green comes back he will help your team so much
    October 14, 2019, 02:01:04 AM
  • indiansnation: u got a very good team yeagg
    October 14, 2019, 02:01:28 AM
  • Brent: Same concept especially if you consider NFLC.  The NFL salary cap is the same as our $188.2M year.  The difference is RL football you have to pay offensive lineman and most teams carry 6-8 with left tackle being about the highest paid non QB position.  That was until recently, but they still get paid.  So if you pay your QB $40M/yr, your LT $15M/yr and the rest of your line a total of about $25-35M year, that could be $90M on 6-7 players.  You still have to field all of your skill positions and defense for the other $100M.

  • Yeagg: I should be better than a .500 team
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:00 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I have a couple redraft leagues where I should be better than I am.
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:36 AM
  • Yeagg: Isn't that where drafting comes in handy
    October 14, 2019, 02:02:49 AM
  • Brent: Exactly
    October 14, 2019, 02:03:34 AM
  • Yeagg: I was referring to the cap space comment in case you didn't know
    October 14, 2019, 02:04:38 AM
  • indiansnation: i think its harder guessing what yound guys will produce in nfl than baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:05:31 AM
  • Brent: The Cowboys got lucky with La'ell Colllins.  He was 1st round talent, but fell out of the draft to UDFA due to false allegations that he was cleared of. So they got one of if not the best OT from that draft for peanuts.  Eventually he will need to be paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:06:28 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, the draft is huge and also hitting on UDFAs.  Teams have to develop and then keep their own talent or they'll go broke and end up in salary cap hell.
    October 14, 2019, 02:07:09 AM
  • Yeagg: So basically just like baseball
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:10 AM
  • indiansnation: yep nfl u gotta watch how much u pay look at browns they are going to have that problem in 2021 they have alot of good tallent thats going to need to get paid.
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:13 AM
  • Yeagg: And no way Brian. Baseball has 40 rounds and still most of those guys never even sniff the MLB
    October 14, 2019, 02:17:33 AM
  • Yeagg: More 1st round picks are bust than even play a full season
    October 14, 2019, 02:18:02 AM
  • Brent: They also have between now and then to figure out who will be resigned and who will be replaced and don't they still have quite a few 1st round picks between now and then?
    October 14, 2019, 02:24:21 AM
  • indiansnation: Hey if u have a top notch gm with a great scouting staff u can make any player u draft be great. Look at Boston their minors sick why is that because they suck at drafting. Know look at Tampa and indians and miami they have pretty dang good minors especially I diane look at who they had pitching this year bauer got traded, and they lost 2 of their sp most. Of the yr
