Week 6 Football Pool (in Contests)

PeterGriffin October 7 2008 11:37 AM EDT

Rules are simple, pick your winning team with the spread and total points scored for tie breaker game.

The spread is what the favored teams are picked to win by. For instance if KC is the favored team to win by -4 points if you pick them then they have to win the game by more than 4 points for you to get the win, but if they win by only 3 points then who ever picked the team they played against (ie Raiders) will get the win because KC didn't cover the spread.

Don't forget to give me your tie breaker number, and that number is what you think the combined score will be for the Monday Night game. (For Example Team A gets 12 and Team B gets 18 then the combined score is 30 and that is the tie breaker score. What you have to do is see if you can guess it or get really close, so that if there is a tie with the picks then who ever gets the closest wins)

I am gonna go ahead and jump start this contest with 100k, and for every 5 entries I will put in another 100k.

PeterGriffin October 9 2008 10:18 AM EDT

ok guys I have 1 entry for this week what is the deal... lets get some players...

again don't forget that I mentioned in the first contest that I may be keeping an overall record for a big grand prize in the end so all your weekly players you may want to get your picks in.

all of my members playing the fantasy football should be doing an entry every week since this contest is partially benefiting that league.

lets go, i am gonna throw in another 200k into the pot

Well after a relatively poor performance (6 or 7 games picked right so far, can't remember which) I doubt it'll come down to a Monday Night game with my Giants this week.

Good luck to everyone who's still in it!

3D October 13 2008 2:02 AM EDT

I don't even follow football but I joined in the contest. I'm surprised by the non-participation.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] October 13 2008 2:10 AM EDT

Yeah i think i got 5 0r 6, thats what i get for not really thinking about my pics.

PeterGriffin October 13 2008 8:22 AM EDT

Well it is a close one this week again. The new guy playing who had no idea how to play and is trying this out for the first time is in the lead, 3D nice work for your first time.

Also I usually catch people who make incorrect entries but bought a new boat this weekend and well I was on it most of the weekend so didn't have the time to check all the picks till it was too late. LittleLauren didn't pick a winner for the Min/Det game and well that is unfortunate but nothing I can do about it now. Below are the results so far and it will come down to the monday night game for 1st

3D - 9
stingiestbard - 8
Josh - 8
RX3 - 8
Hatchetman - 8
godwolf - 7
th00p - 7
Kevlar - 6
Plaques - 6

All the top 3 places will be decided by tonight's game.

GOOD LUCK GUYS, and I am gonna change the prize and entry fee rules next week so pay attention, hoping to get some bigger pay outs for you guys.

New Football Pool Site

Invitation code: carnage

Hey guys I went ahead and made a football pool site that if I can get everybody who ever has or ever wants to play to go ahead and make you an account on this site that would be a huge help. All you need is a user name password and email. None of this info is public so no worries, but it will make the management of this much easier and allow you guys to check your scores when you want. Also once you create your account I will go in there and fix your previous picks so that the overall numbers will show also. This thing is pretty cool and it has a live scoring at the bottom so you can keep up with the teams as they happen. thanks guys and go make you an account so I can add in your past weeks picks.

There is a help section there that is very informative also for this contest HELP


Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] October 13 2008 1:08 PM EDT
