why is the deadline to enter noon? Any chance it could be changed to first kicokoff?

To maintain continuity with the other Vegas contest.

For those that participate in both contest as well as me I felt it would be easier to have the same start time for both contest 

 

Going forward I am going to start making the deadline to enter the day before games start.

IMO this will reduce people procrastinating so they can get stale lines and reduce the difficult position late entries put me in on a semi regular basis

Week #1 Vegas #2 contest picks are due at noon eastern 10-21

Please don't wait until the last moment to enter as it can lead to a situation that makes for difficult circumstances if your entry is late.

 

1 Sec late per time stamp on Google Docs is a DQ for that week 

I do ask that you post in the thread when you have submitted your picks for every week. This reduces the chances of a double entry for someone.

I do appreciate it is time consuming to do so, but it is quite helpful.

 

In all weeks if I make an error on a line or total play the error. What's on the sheet is what will be graded.

 

So if Ohio State should be -21 and I put + 21 we will use +21. If the total should be 46 and I put 4 we will use 4

why do they need continuity with other contest? Two totally different contest with two totally different leagues.

You will always have people with deadline issues. Makes no sense imo to have an nfl contest with a deadline at noon. The process is the same no matter and the doc keeps a time stamp so no issues.
If you want to avoid stale lines then use a pph or run a different format contest.
And obviously my opinion is jaded as I got a zero in curently running NFL(unavoidable circumstance as wife went to ER that morning) contest despite entering my picks almost an hour before kickoff. Regardless its a useless rule that trips someone up almost every go around.
With that said its your contest obviously so you'll run it however you see fit but wanted to give an opinion of someone who has played in most of these over the years.

DS, disagree with you here. Boat usually has the contest up Tuesday, or Wednesday latest. If you can’t find 15 min from wed to Sat at noon, you got bigger issues. Also, I’m not accusing you of being a stale line tool - but that’s probably one of reasons for deadline.

Unfortunate circumstances but if you did em Thursday you woulda had no issue

If you want to dodge the stale line players then set the deadline a day before.  Making the deadline an hour before kickoff isn't doing anything to deter.  

 

Set the NCAA Contest with a Friday at 3pm or whatever deadline and the NFL contest deadline Saturday.  Or heck,  you really wanna make a difference with those set the deadline a day or two after posting.  

 

My point (and again its must my suggestion/opinion and nothing more) is that if you're going to have them posted for an hour before kickoff whats the difference running it up to kickoff?

I also missed 2 weeks in the 1st ab ncaa contest, wasnt doing great but was batting 500, then 10 losses in like week 3 and week 5 because i missed the deadline but a little bit....1 time i was still able to submit my plays but was still given 10 losses for the week...............Sucks but i respect the rules......Deema loves these rules, last year knocked me out of survivor contest for a pick i posted but wasnt able to be found, logged in at 330 with all kinds of shit going on and even offered to pick another team, nope you are out!   these rules at many contests have cost me in just about everyone of them.........But DEEMA loves em......

How hard is it to meet a deadline? If you cant, don’t join the contest. It isn’t mandatory. These are free contests

I think BBB would be fine with a Friday deadline, tbh.

But then when you miss that by an hour will you say it’s silly?
