NFL Football Pool Game IX

Post by Marianne » Wed Aug 07, 2013 6:13 pm

Is anyone ready for some football? Here we are with our ninth season of our game here on the Sound Machine board! I hope we get a lot of players, and I hope Dave doesn't mind me starting the game again this year.

Dave, I know we had a pretty meager showing this summer, and I wouldn't blame you one bit if you decided to close this forum down. It would make me very sad to see it go. But I certainly can't expect you to keep a forum open just so I don't get depressed.

I still want to run the game, and I don't want to lose the loyal players we've had over the years. So that's why I'm still opening up the game here. If the forum closes, I hope we get ample notice so we can move our game somewhere else. I have an idea or two to keep us intact, just in case, but I'll touch on that later. In the meantime, I will post this week's preseason Game Open announcement. It's short notice for this week, but since it's just the pre-season, I'm not too concerned, since we don't count pre-season towards the real game. As is usual, pre-season is just to get our feet wet, and get ourselves back into football mode.

And with that, here is our first Pre-season Game Open post:
