You also have to remember that snew has approx 2000 + people playing that game, so even if you come in with a ranking of 1000, you've done better than 1/2 the people playing, so I wouldn't feel bad for that. If you look at your individual score, at the bottom, he gives an average, Min & max score. I always figure as along as I bet the average, I'm happy.
As far as my team, It is based on a board with over 3000 members, some of them are so into spoiling, that it is almost their second job, (and over 63 members on the team) so it will be easier to have someone towards the top with that many.
I just wish yahoo pickem was still around... I'm pretty good at picking boots and immunity winners, but, when it comes to some of the nitpicky questions, I just suck. LOL
