          We have scores in games and I can’t even see my opponents plays posted yet! Not cool at all

            Where’s the transparency with Golden Nugget?
            This is ridiculous

              They're up now (didn't see exactly when but well after early kickoffs)...they're getting tons of complaints and hopefully get them up earlier from here on out.

                  I didn't make ComptrBob's list, but my ViewFromVegas is up to 14.5 points (14-6-1 after going 5-1-1 this week), so hoping he has me moving in to Top 10 (or close to it) after this weekend.

                      Thanks, ComptrBob...was hoping to be higher than tied for 23rd with 14.6-1 record, but lot of sharp guys in this contest and it probably didn't help with Rams covering on #SNF...but I like my position in this contest (and there's no Week 4 leader prize in this contest like in the others, so slow & steady is OK

                      #UltimateFootballChallenge leader after Week 3 is Sirius-3 at 17.5 points (17-3-1 record); 2-time champ @MuckedNuts is 2 games back; it's a crowded leaderboard as @ViewFromVegas is 3 back at 14-6-1; no Week 4 leader prize in this contest @GoldenNuggetLV @VSiNLive (h/t @ComptrBob)

                          Thanks, ComptrBob...22-6 is pretty tough, but have to figure Blue Dream will come back to the pack at some point...looks like I'm in tie for 17th (I'm assuming ComptrBob has accounted for anyone at 18 wins who could move past us on #MNF).
