I'd like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Mike for all the work he has done to fine tune this message board since he took the reigns. Also a BIG thank you for saving this format for the masses of fans of the sixman game. I notice the usual grousing about "my team isn't ranked where they should be' and also somewhat about the spreads for particular games. Sometimes your team may be under-ranked and for a variety of reasons. There is a lot of guesswork in putting rankings together at the start of a season, and depending on outside info that may or may not be accurate is part of the equation. All-in-all Mike has done a wonderful job, has the spreads linked to the past histories of the teams as well as the schedules. The site is functioning as it did in the past and I for one am eternally grateful that Mike has taken up the mantle to continue this endeavor.
