Out of the Blue

Batman, the Commissioner of the Blue's News NFL picking league, is looking ahead to the season, and has identified a few different sites that can provide free tracking of our picks. If you are interested in participating, feel free to offer an opinion on the pros and cons of Yahoo Sports, NFL.com, ESPN, or FOX Sports so we can decide which one of those we should use. It feels early to discuss such things, but the season actually begins two weeks from today!

Anyone have a digital camcorder they really like that they would recommend? Not looking for anything fancy, looking for something like this and will get this one if no one says anything.

I say, skip that and go for a Go Pro. They are a little bit more expensive but are worth it in the long run, if you ever decide to get a little bit more serious with recording. I think you can get one for 200$ now.
I have a nifty blue line!

Yeah... what the hell actually happened there? Is that a real news site or some sort of African version of the Onion?

If that's a real story, that takes some serious damned dedication, one would assume.

It's a real news site. In South Africa anything is possible.

camcorders are way beyond the mature technology stage. just look for the ones that match your requirements and get the cheapest. it's like asking which is the best mouse for cheap. really can't mess it up.

Once we decide, I think I will make a second group for us and we can do a "spread" type pick every week as well. See who the TRUE masters are. heheheheh

I've only checked out the ESPN site so far, but it seems fine. I like the idea of a spread league as well.

I joined ESPN because I already got an account there and I like the system. If people decide to do something else that is cool, but I am going to wait to create an account with any of them until I have to.

Yea, I just wanted to get into each one and see what they look like. I personally like how ESPN works. It seems the friendliest and was easiest to setup. They have a ton of data as well.

Go poke around, let me know what you guys think and we will make a decision soon.

Bats.

/I am leaning to ESPN, but Yahoo also looks pretty good. NFL and FOX are garbage. I also don't like having to create a yahoo email for the yahoo service......right now I am geared towards ESPN unless someone has a very compelling argument.

Hay guys, some games coming out soon, Gauntlet being one of them, and GMG is doing a 25% off until tomorrow on many man games. Got Gauntlet for $15.00 - comes out on Sept 3rd.

GMG250-FFSELE-CTED00

If the game you want doesn't use that code, here is one for 20% - Z4364W-7MR5WA-N5BCOO

Three years, innit? And hey, three straight years of playoff runs isn't too shabby, especially if you're the Bengals.

I don't really give a damn which site we pick, as I spend literally a minute a week on it, but I've heard good things about ESPN's setup.

Also, keep it classy, Orange farmers.
