ps: my week 8 picks were accepted.

 

Thanks, and good luck with your picks.
BTW, did you see that interception that Fitzpatrick threw the other night? He tossed the ball right at helmet level and it deflected to a Pittburgh defender. He makes some ugly turnovers!

Finally got it to work, had to install and use Firefox on my work computer.  Imagine my shock when I found that IE was the problem?{#Lol}

 

LOL Yeah, that's probably my issue too. When I have a little more time, I'm going to try the solution Proclivities suggested yesterday, which will include changing the settings for FlashPlayer. It will be nice to block those obnoxious & loud ads that ESPN launches automatically when you open a new page.

Anyway, you'd think ESPN would be able to create a site that's a little less glitchy...

{#Cheers} Thanks. Some last-minute comebacks by the Bills, Lions and Redskins saved me this week. Looks like there are lots of toss up games coming up next week. Should be interesting!

I like that idea. I'll give it a try.

 
The spots where the Flash modules are will have an icon of a jigsaw puzzle piece.  You can click on it if you want to see a particular video, but at least you won't have loud ads for auto insurance or light beers running as soon as you open the page.

I've been using an Opera browser to access ESPN lately.  On Chrome under Content Settings >> Plug-Ins I have it set at Click To Play, which essentially turns off Flash, especially the hundreds of Autorun ones which are on ESPN.

I actually dowloaded a new version of FlashPlayer this morning (got an automatic prompt to do so), but I haven't restarted my computer. That could do the trick.

Yeah, I keep the site bookmarked too, but I usually have to log in again. Something to do with my internet security settings, I guess. Once logged in, though, I've never had trouble accessing the various weeks to make picks or edit them, but now when I press on week 8, it just stays in the previous week.

This happens on my PC, but I can make picks on my laptop. Go figure.
