Re: Andrew Paulson -- Candidacy for ECF President

Interesting about the numbers of chess players. In terms of people who play the game casually . Id say surely over 500m just look at the recent WC viewing figures. In india, china and the ussr countries you will get near that number.

Re: Incredible crosstable!

We have a long way to go to be top half .

Still need 1/3 and have 2 professional sides to play.

Hardly a shoe in .

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

Hopefully Sidney rice can get a TD and then Jags try and force it for INT's+sacks

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

I need a miracle from my risky selection of Sidney rice.

I picked the wrong QB and Jimmy Graham was immense.

So im lost unless seattle turnover 4 times etc

Re: Andrew Paulson -- Candidacy for ECF President

However, I recently pitched to 4 of the Fortune 250 trying to get sponsors for my chess team and was willing to give them all name rights except for the "Sharks" at the end. Perhaps that last bit was the reason they did not bite(pun). Generally though they did not feel the exposure offered by such a...

Re: Andrew Paulson -- Candidacy for ECF President

Is there seriously a captain in the 4NCL who would not welcome a large sponsor of the league if it meant better conditions/prizes in general?

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

The fact is that the Seahawks are the best D in the league. I am happy i put some settings in place for when I missed the draft. I am a massive fan of McCoy and Charles. They came 3rd and 4th on my power rankings behind AP and Lynch. My auto-QB selection devastated me to be honest. Because It tagged...

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

My 2 Studs got it done. Both Scoring in the 20's . I now need to reconsider my "risk" of starting Sidney Rice. He is a curve ball I was going to play if last night went badly. Stevie Johnson might be a more solid option. My logic was the Jets are solid on pass D. Ive got my "branch rule" in full mot...

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

Well unfortunately Ive got KC V PHI and that means a Square off between some of my core.

KC have the best or one of the best Run D's in the village. And McCoy is my "stud"

So what I've lost out there.

I will know by Friday morning if I have any chance!
