Is anyone interested in a football competition this season?

I am probably going to do a trimmed down version this year if there is any interest. I am anticipating being called back for Turn (TV show on AMC, Revolutionary War, G. Washington, spies, Jamie Bell, me - does that ring a bell? Big Grin ) and if that happens my time will be severely limited.

Last year I was having a hard time keeping up with things toward the end and I don't want to try and do too much. There would still be multiple prizes and opportunities to win. I would like to start with at least 6-8 contestants so who's in?

OK, let's do it!

I will post the rules, format and prizes on Tuesday of next week (September 2nd). It will be more streamlined than last year. I'm not taking anything for granted but filming for Turn is taking place from September through February and that's pretty much the whole football season. I'm anticipating being a little busy with that. Pray

The field is still open! Anyone can play and you won't have to play every week to win a prize. Although it might help! Big Grin

Side wagers are allowed and encouraged! For instance, I am looking forward to Titans week October 19th. I also seem to recall a Buccaneers fan somewhere? (November 16th!)

Congrats to D&C - the returning champ. You're not allowed to use any of your Vegas contacts this year! Angel

Good Luck to all. My holiday weekend starts in about 2 hours so I will see y'all next week. Have a safe and fun time!

I'm ready so ready for football to start. For some reason, I sat through a downpour last night to watch a bunch of backups play (Titans vs Vikings preseason). All that you learned from that is that it looks like the Vikings 3rd string is better than the Titans, or at least can play better in the rain.

Holy Short Term Memory, Batman! You are absolutely right.

I guess that goes to show that you can't believe everything that you read on the Internet. Kiss

That's the one. The man that starred in the greatest "commercial" on SNL ever for United Way. He's a fairly decent quarterback that has some okay stats.

Right! That's the guy with the enormous head. Isn't he playing The Leader in the next Hulk movie?

Someone's eager for the season to start!

I am going for a more streamlined version this year as I am anticipating being invited back for Turn - Season 2 and that was a huge time suck last year.

The scoring will be similar to last year. First Place in a category earns you 10 points, Tenth Place gets you 1 point. There are only 3 categories this time: Win/Loss Percentage, Lock Pick, Monday Night Football.

If you end up in 1st place in all three categories you would have 30 points, the maximum attainable.

1st = 10 pts
2nd = 9 pts
3rd = 8 pts
4th = 7 pts
5th = 6 pts
6th = 5 pts
7th = 4 pts
8th = 3 pts
9th = 2 pts
10th = 1 pt

Win / Loss Percentage

Simple average, accumulative. Week 1 you go 8-8 and your W/L is 50%. The next week you sweep the table, 16-0. Your new record is 24-8 (75%)

No point spreads, just straight up win or lose.

Lock Pick
Modified Survivor Pool. Pick one team every week that you are absolutely certain will win. You cannot pick the same team twice in the season regardless of whether they win or lose when you picked them initially. There is no penalty for missing your LP.

Monday Night Football
There are 17 MNF games this year. Just pick the winners! Big Grin

A Bonus Prize will be awarded to whoever has the best 1 week W/L percentage.

All picks must be in by the start of the first game of the week which is usually going to be Thursday. You can still play if you miss the Thursday deadline but you will be given a loss for that game.

Any ties will be decided during the playoffs. I might do another Playoff Challenge as well...Think

I will do my best to have standings and the next slate of games up by Tuesday of each week.

Good luck everyone! I will post pics of the prize package in a few days.
