Yes they do. The dates changed since the last time I checked back in January.

There has been a change 2 groups due to the number of drop-outs:


In the NFL Group,

the winner of Golden Grillz/nny27nyj69njn18 wins the groups and the loser finishes runner-up; both advance


In the NCAAF Group,

coin flip tie breaker has Vetern Newbie winning the group, and coin flip tie breaker has Jeter2010 finishing runner-up; both advance


The NFL and NCAAF Groups are finished so you 4 no longer need to TD until the brackets are announced.


The bracket play will start when Leg 3 finishes, and no earlier than July 19.

That's why I give roughly 5 days to start TDs, not to mention a long weekend this time around.

July 5, 2010  12:38 PM ET

Hahaha, I wasn't even challenged to the TD from my opponent, and now I it has me listed as forfeit?

Rules state that if you were not challenged, then you would then challenge him. Neither was done, and a forfeit was given.

If stone and redsoxpedroia do not get their TD underway by tomorrow night, it will be considered a 0-0 draw.
