Overview:
*The European League of Football is American football played on the continent of Europe, in various countries. It is not affiliated with the NFL, although the latter granted the ELF permission to use names from the old NFL Europe league. This brought excitement and legitimacy to ELF.
*In our league, players pick a team name from a list created by the Commissioner. Team names are fictional but do reflect some meaning for the given region.
*The regular season is ten weeks old. The postseason is two weeks long.
*Players pick from 6 ELF regular season games each week, with a point spread.

Making Picks
