Maybe it's set up so just the person that started the thread is able to make edits ????

Can't be it.  If you look back at some of the contests, like WWE PPV's and golf tournaments, etc, you'll see people making changes to their picks before the start of the event.  It's not a big deal, just been curious why some would have the edit option and some wouldn't.

Always get a message that I do not have permission to edit my own threads in the forum.  also that I might be able to if i logged in which of course I am.  Logged out and logged back in to see if that made a difference but it did not.

I think I might have the answer - maybe there is a way that when you start up a thread in this section you can turn on / turn off the edit function for other posters. I've never done it and have never even looked to see if it's possible but it might be if you know where to look. If that's not it then we need beejmi to clear this mystery up.

I wouldn't worry about it...if we have to wait for beej, he's only gonna stop by and tell us we're idiots for picking Tom Coughlin.

No points scored for any of those guys.

Why in the name of logic is Benlen the only one smart enough to list the horrible Jim Caldwell, albeit as a 1 pointer?  We really fucked up on this one.

I'm done after CH gives out the "Dan Campbell points" as he's dead.  Payton and McCoy got extensions, although McCoy getting fired mid-season next year would not surprise me.  Reese is as good as alive as long as the season doesn't end in 2016.

Good one for me but the McCoy extension hurts me too, although he could get canned early next season if the Chargers start out lousy.

I'll say it again, how in the hell did we all forget Jim Caldwell?

It's like the Dead Pool - sometimes the picks are so obvious that you just overlook them and sometimes regardless of their performance ( or age ) some of the bastards just keep hanging around.

Caldwell was coming off a winning first season with the Lions and after a horrible first half of the season improved dramatically in the second half when Billy Bob Thornton was hired.



I'm going to say the new GM Bob Quinn gives Jim Caldwell some rope but if next season starts off the same as this season Caldwell will be done.  Martin Mayhew was a piss poor GM and part of Caldwell's problem was as a result of questionable personnel decisions by Mayhew.
