2016-17 NFL Pick 'Em Pool

Folks, I've completed and release this season's NFL Pick 'Em pool. Like past years, many of you have diligently been pestering me for weeks now. Keep doing that! It's paying off. I'm actually getting this out well before the season, unlike last year. Now, I didn't have the ambitious list of new features this year that I did last year, but I did have to contend with the Rams moving back to LA, which actually ended up being more involved to change than I'd like to admit. Also, at the request of several pool admins, I did create a companion "Picks" sheet to distribute to pool participants, so they can simply email back the file for the admins to copy-paste into the master sheet. Just remember to always copy, paste special... values when moving their picks into the master sheet, so as to not jack up formatting or other stuff.

UPDATE: I guess since I was able to get this year's version out so early compared to years past, I've been compelled to throw in one last feature enhancement. Many of you through the years have been asking for an automatic game results/score updater, using data from the web. I've got that feature now implemented, pulling scores from my score information website of choice -- Please let me know if you encounter any issues using this new feature. That is all.

Without further ado, here are the files:

Also as happens each year, several folks, as they were pinging, pestering, checking-in with me offered to pay me or donate to me for the sheet. This, like the college bowl pool sheet I do, I do for free. That said, if you are so compelled, feel free to PayPal me whatever you like:

$5.00     $10.00     $25.00     $50.00

Really you just have to change that dollar amount in the URL --

Anyways...please enjoy this year's NFL Pick 'Em. If you encounter a bug or need help with using the sheet, let me know.
