  2. Hey everyone! Wanted to go ahead and get this posted so that everyone has plenty of time to get picks in by Thursday. I will edit this with tags when the standings are finalized tonight, but our Week 1 Winner was none other than @Mr. Scot's bird, Pendleton the Parrot. With 13 correct picks, the nearest competitor with only 11, and only one game pending, we've all be upstaged by a bird Here is a link to last week's thread for the rules, in case we have any new contestants this week! EDIT: Here are the first week's standings, assuming the Jets don't orchestrate a comeback lol. 1) Pendleton the Parrot - 14/16, .875 (+1) T-2) @MHS831, @CRA, @Cracka McNasty - 11/16, .688 T-3) @Boxhead85, @Datawire, @Bronn, @Chosen Newton - 10/16, .625 T-4) @ncfan, @Raleigh PF, @jfra78, @FakePlasticTrees, @Wyank, @Mr. Scot - 9/16, .563 T-5) UpstatePanther, @steven8989, @grimesgoat - 8/16, .500
  3. Hope not. I think it's great that a non-human can walk on and succeed in this league. I like the storyline. I'll work up a contract for him.
  4. @Mr. Scot what are you feeding that parrot?? He only has one out of 14 completed games wrong, by far the best of anyone.
  5. Well... Since there's no prize, I'll allow it lol. Mr. Scot's bird is welcome this year lol.

  7. It's that time again y'all! Welcome to guests from Twitter who aren't familiar with the Huddle! I wish I had got around to creating this before Week 1 of the NFL season, but I've been super busy with a move among other things. Let's start with a refresher of how this works for last year's participants and newcomers alike: 1) I will try to have this posted each week sometime on Monday, Tuesday morning at the latest. 2) This thread will be locked after kickoff of the first game of the week. No further entries will be allowed. Edits will be allowed until the thread is locked. 3) There's a "winner take all" Power Point each week. I think it adds an interesting twist, and helped avoid ties in the Huddle Pick'em standings at the end of the season last year. Rule is simple: you win the week, you get an extra win added your ratio at the end of the season. These do accrue, so it pays to make sure you think your picks through and add your tiebreakers. 4) I'll count ties as half-right much like the NFL counts a tie as half a win. If you correctly pick a tie, the entry will be worth the full point AND you will also receive a Power Point just like the Weekly Winner. Kudos for correctly picking a tie! 5) The tiebreakers will be the total points of the MNF game and the weekly Panthers game. For the Panthers' bye week, we'll use SNF instead. I'll use the MNF tiebreaker first, Panthers game second, if necessary. 6) I cannot accept new participants after Week 3. I do NOT care if dozens of people get in on the action between now and then. I can handle it. Get your picks in while you can. Keep up with it. I just can't allow people to hop in whenever they like and not post whenever they like. It's not fair to those who DO participate every week if I allow new participants each week. 7) Similarly, I can't allow someone to miss more than 2 weeks, though you won't want to. If you miss a week, you do not make up those points. Those who missed 2 weeks last year had an almost impossible climb the rest of the season. If you miss a 3rd week, for my own convenience since I tally this myself, you will be removed from the competition. This is all for fun, but I don't want to just keep track of picks for people that aren't committed to the whole competition. 8) Like last year, we'll just go to the end of the actual playoffs and let the results do the talking instead of a separate playoff structure here. Too complicated lol. Last year there was a prize for the winner, which he deferred to go to a good cause. I honored that request, but this year I can't afford to offer a prize. Maybe next year we can have a small entry fee and let it be a pot for the winner. Maybe even a 2nd and 3rd place prize. Let me know what y'all think of that idea. But this year, we'll do it strictly for bragging rights. I appreciate you all for coming, especially if you weren't a Huddle member and made the effort to come and set up an account to participate. Good luck everyone!
  8. @FakePlasticTrees I still lurk. It's been a busy year and I've been doing most of my fandom on Twitter, but I can probably break out the spreadsheet. Will have to forego tonight's game because I won't have time to work it out before kickoff. Should be rolling by Friday morning though!
  9. @iBBB is right. Charlotte Pipe's land is weird to put a whole stadium on. It's conceivable that Tepper could buy up the land on the other side of 277 to build the new stadium, as it'd fit there. But the Pipe Shop land would be used for parking and fan experiences I think. As for the railroad, I work for that railroad and I can assure you that there are no plans to move those tracks. That's our main NYC-NOLA artery. Lowering the rail is not an option either. The landscape right there doesn't lend itself to burying the rail in a tunnel, especially considering we have a junction with another major railroad and our yard literally a mile north of there. A mile is not far in railroad terms, FYI. The HSR is actually a different story. Notice that freshly tilled ground and concrete structure south of the Pipe Shop? That's the new Amtrak servicing facility. It's completed, but hasnt been tied into our mainline yet. The city is building a new transit hub just north of the stadium that will combine Amtrak, light rail, city bus, Greyhound, and taxi services. There is already commuter rail service between Charlotte and Raleigh, but it's top speed on Norfolk Southern's trackage is only 80mph. True HSR is terribly expensive, but improving the right of way so that the commuter trains could reach 100 or even 120mph is within the realm of possibility. If this happens, the team could try to justify similar service between Charlotte and Greenville, SC and Charlotte and Columbia. I'm getting onto a different topic now, but that could trigger a rail boom in the region connecting the major cities, and as a railway worker, that would excite me.
  10. I appreciate the shoutout @ncfan! My ranking was based on production. Someone mentioned camp vs game production and that's a valid point. But so far, Ive simply observed that Hogan has outperformed Moore. They're kind of 2A and 2B. They'll be used differently. And Moore has a knack for YAC that I haven't seen from Hogan so the tables may yet turn.
