Implemented View Player Picks on Leaderboard [functionality change]

    I've made a slight change to the Leaderboard & View Player Picks functionality.

    Currently, a given week's Leaderboard will not display until two conditions are met (The week has Locked AND At least 1 game for that week has been scored). This was done to prevent players from viewing each others picks prior to the week closing.

    The 1st condition has been removed (checking that the week has locked) and the 2nd condition has been tweaked

    How it works now is that once any single game for a particular week is scored, the leaderboard for that week will activate IF there is at least 1 player with a correct pick. The 2nd part of this is the viewing of player picks. In the old system, I blocked the access of player picks when the week was still open. Viewing is now allowed, but only games that have been scored will display the "PICK" info. Players can not see another players pick for a given game until after a given game is locked and scored.

    This works more like the LIVE leaderboards for Yahoo and ESPN when you can see the players picks once the games scores are final, yet you can't cheat by seeing picks for games that have not been played yet.

    If you don't want people viewing the Leaderboard until the week has ended, wait until the end of the week to set the scores.

    Here is an example of what the Player Picks overlay looks like in the new system that allows you to view the picks of games that are already complete, but blocks the viewing of picks made on games that have not yet been scored.
