CYST: Week 10

Analysis Opinion Picks
Website | + posts

I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi where I learned the three rules of life: Lord loves a workin' man; don't trust whitey; see a doctor and get rid of it.

Look, I know you’re not going to read this but I’m still going to type it.  Why?  Because I’d like to point out how much of a little bitch that Aaron Rodgers is.  There’s an article on ESPN where he claims that there is a double standard with the NFL’s virus policy because you can have close contact in practice, but need Plexiglass between the players in the locker room, or how you can “dap up” (this has to mean butt sex) a guy after a game but you can’t eat at the same lunch table as a teammate.  He believes some of the protocols are for show, but admits that some may be based on science.  I guess Mr. Rodgers doesn’t understand that football is a contact sport and if the protocols did away with all contact, they wouldn’t be playing at all this season.  It sounds like he doesn’t understand the science behind limiting contact in that you don’t have to totally remove all contact to reduce one’s chances of catching the virus.  Davante Adams went on later in the article to complain about the NFL not allowing parties for things like Christmas or Halloween, so it seems to me that Packer players are as dumb as their fans. I really just wanted to get the conversation going this morning.  We’ll probably see a 5 page SDL response sometime tomorrow.

Now, for the real reason we’re all here, CYST!  Not a bad week for you asshats; lotta points.  Curtis picked up a point and is still in the lead, but the top got a bit more crowded after Nate and I grabbed 2 points and Gabes nailed his second game of the year by picking the correct outcome of the Bears @ Titans game putting him in second place and only 2 points behind Curtis.  Others picking up a point or more include Dan, Jmac and LoW.  Pretty amazing week.  I may be wrong, but I think this is the first time we’ve had points earned in every category (not counting the ‘extra’ points  a nailed it response gets in the categories).

The above only represents games that involved the NFCN or NFCS.  If you wish, the leader board for those who weren’t too “busy” to pick all the games is here.  This only contains those of you who actually scored a point in CYST.  Want to see your name here?  Do better and stop sucking. This means you, SDL.


Wondering why some of the names have a different background color?  Well, that’s because of a fantastic feature of the CYST site.  If you click on My Account on the top right of the CYST site (when you’re logged in), you will see my todo list for that page, but also a color picker.  If you choose a color there (and click update), that color will be the background on the site in tables where your name appears.

No NFCN/S game tonight, but there is an exciting matchup between the Colts and Titans.  Before you’re overcome with boredom, go make your picks.  Head on over to the CYST site (that someone made all by himself, with nobody’s help what-so-ever) and make your picks. Really, I’m not kidding, go do it now.  How do you get to the site so that you can pick games?  Well, that’s a good question.  If only there was a uniform resource locator in the form of a hyperlink.



Don’t mind this part as I just wanted to say that as games get shuffled and if you made you picks for that game, it stayed with the game in its new date/time slot. Thank you, that is all.  Go make your picks.
