Welcome back! Its time for the NFL Football pool game again! Returning for a third year here on WOP!

I'll be sending out reminders/invites to previous year's players hopefully by Tues night. In the mean time, anyone who finds their way here is welcome to start playing.

As with previous years, we do play the Pre-season, but the Pre-season games don't count towards the Season Average Rankings we keep track of during the Regular Season. Pre-season for us is like a training camp. It gives people a chance to get home from DCI, or whatever summer festiivities you've enjoyed. It also gives us a chance to iron out any kinks in the game before we play for serious stakes.

I'm experimenting with deadlines this year. This year (for at least the pre-season), I'm going to see how it works to have a deadline for each day a game is played during an NFL Week. If it gets too confusing, or too much work for me, then I may go back to the old deadline format. We'll see.


Here's an overview on how the game is played...

Each week, I post a "Game Open Announcement" in the this thread. You pick the winner of each game listed for that week, plus answer two Bonus Questions (that primarily serve as tie breakers).

Each correctly guessed game is worth 40 points.

Bonus Question #1 asks for a guess of the point spread of a particular game (usually the Sunday Night Game during the Regular Season), and is worth 15 points, minus the variance of your guess from the actual point spread. For instance, if you guessed the point spread to be 10 points, and the game ended at 21-14, the actual point spread is 7 points. Your guess was 3 points off of the actual spread, so you would get 12 points added to your score (15 possible points minus the 3 points you were off by in your guess).

Bonus Question #2 asks for you to guess the total points scored in a particular game (usually the Monday Night game), and is worth 25 points minus the variance of your guess to the actual total points scored in the game. For instance, if you guessed 40 as the total points scored, and the game ended at 21-14, the actual total points scored in that game is 35. Your guess would be off by 5, so you would get 20 points added to your score (25 possible points minus the 5 points you were off by in your guess).

SCORING

The score you get is a percentage of how many points you get compared to how many points were available that week. The available points depends on how many games were played that week. For instance, if there were 16 games played that week, the available points is 680 (40 X 16, plus the Bonus points available).

If you guessed 12 games correctly, you would get 480 points. And using the above Bonus Question expamples, your total Bonus Question points would be 32. Your total points scored in that week would then be 512, which is 75.294 percent of the total available points for that week. Therefore, your score for that week is 75.294.

Beginning with the second week of the Regular Season, I start keeping a Season Average score/ranking for all regular players. The Season Average score is simply the average of each score you get each week. If you miss a week of play, and you don't use a BYE option, then you get a zero for that week, which is factored in to your Season Average score/rank.

Any questions are welcome!

I'll be posting a Game Open Announcement for Pre-Season Week 1 shortly

Not interested in pre-season, but I will join the game for the regular season (probably on Facebook).

Not too sure I'm gonna run it on Facebook. Hardly anyone even replied to my inquiry there, and of those who did, they seemed quite content to stay at their respective boards. The 3 or so people I know of who are not active on thier respective board haven't responded at all.
