Not a great week for one of the two most common picks, as six players picked the wrong side of the TB-LAR shootout. Houston, Baltimore, Indy, and Cincy picks also backfired as the Panthers, Raiders, Chiefs, and Steelers won their games.

Week 5 starts now!
Back to school, back to indefinite semi-V/LA. I should still be reachable through normal means though.

I thought he was picking the Jets whom are @Philly

"My boys at philly" implies not the philly team.

But either way, just say a team.

1. He's from PA. I think it's a reasonable assumption that they'd be an Eagles/Steelers fan.
2. I don't think anyone actually thinks that the Jets can beat Philly.

I mean, yes I'm feeding the attention troll which I ought not do but I'm that stupidly argumentative.

"Attention troll" lol. K. Y'all responding to something that you aren't involved in, but I'm trolling lol.

I simply don't think it's clear either way, seems like an OS. I don't think it's wrong to ask the person in question to clarify.

Example, if I said "My boys at Seattle" for the game tonight, who would you assume I'm talking about, given that I live in Southern California?

I mean, the other side of it is that why would anyone pick the Jets? Who in their right mind would *fights back tears* actually pick them to win a game?

My point is more that the worst case scenario of clarifying is better by a significant margin then the worst case scenario of not doing so, whether it was intentionally an OS or an unintentional misunderstanding and that there is room for that misunderstanding because the statement is unclear and forces the reader to make assumptions (i.e. "no one would pick the jets", "he's from x state so that's his team", etc)

+1 to the request for non-ambiguous submissions. It shouldn't be the game moderator's job to use context clues to interpret a submission.
