    So... nobody likes getting FREE Rams stuff?

    I'm just wondering, given how few of you have joined the "Pick 10" contest on the Draft & FA board. Come on! All you have to do is pick 10 prospects for a chance to win a free Upper Deck Diecast Rams 18 Wheeler!

    But that's the beauty of the contest. You can keep editing your picks until the draft. I've already edited my selections a couple of times and plan to do so a few more times before draft weekend.

    I'll probably throw a set of names out there, but I don't have enough knowledge of the second day guys, nor have the time to research properly.

    Yeah, but this is kind of like NCAA Tournament pools... the person who wins will probably the one who's blindly guessing!

    More truth to that than some would imagine. An example: Some years ago I would regularly engage in a weekly NFL "pick em" contest with a group of friends and employees which required that one select the weekly winners with the tie-breaker being the closest guess of the total points scored by both teams at the end of the Monday night game. One night my football buddy (who had organized the thing in the first place) was collecting the weekly $5 fees, from all of us "experts" when his wife (Elly) who had never watched an NFL game, asked to play. At first my buddy said " No way - you know nothing about football, let alone individual teams - you'd just be throwing away your money." Upon hearing this I chimed in saying that if she wanted to play it would just sweeten the pot. My buddy after a moment's thought agreed and handed her the game schedule for the week. As she pondered the list, it soon became clear that her selections were based entirely on the teams names which most appealed to her. We giggled and guffawed and thanked her for her "donation." .. Cutting to the chase, she won going away which irked us no end. This signaled the end of her participation in the weekly pool, as Pablo (my football buddy) banned her from the pool permanently on the grounds that entrants had to be real football fans. Not very fair now that I reflect upon it, but at the time I must confess I made no effort to intercede on her behalf ...

    And yes Av - I do plan on entering, but right now I am struggling to get past round four .. Hmmm .. Now that I think of it maybe I should call Elly for a tip or two ...

    What happens now with this compensatory pick? Do we get an extra guess or are we just gonna ignore it??

    The extra picks do not impact the number of choices you get. It just means there are more chances for the Rams to pick the players on your list.
