NFL Football Pool Game II

Post by Marianne » Mon Aug 10, 2009 5:59 pm

Here it is! The return of the NFL Football Pool Game we had so much fun playing last year!

I"m getting a bit of a late start this year, but since the Pre-Season is just for practice, ironing out the kinks, getting our chops back in shape, and recruiting players, I think we'll be ok. We'll be in full swing once the Regular Season starts!

Here's hoping everyone who played last year returns to play again this year. And of course new players are always welcome!

A a brief overview of the game for anyone contemplating playing.....

The game is fashioned after the basic Office Pool you see at work, where you pick the winning team of each game played that week. You get a certain amount of points based on how many games you guessed correctly, as well as two Bonus Questions.

Each week, I post a "Game Open" announcement in this thread. You make your picks by posting said picks in the thread for that week. Scoring is based on the percentage of points you earned, in comparison to the amount of points available to be earned that week (this is based on the number of games played in a given week).

Your score for the week is then averaged to scores from other weeks to get your Season Average ranking.

DEADLINE #1 CLOSED

Picks no longer accepted for Games 1-8.

DEADLINE #2 STILL OPEN

You may still submit/change picks for Games 9-12 and the Bonus Questions through Saturday's Deadline.

Jacjar1, it appears you originally just copy/pasted FSQ's picks and adjusted them to your picks. But you failed to delete FSQ's picks in your post.

This time only (and because its the Pre-Season), I'm going with your first set of picks, and the last set of BQ's, cause those are what don't match FSQ's picks. If this were the Regular Season where everything counts, I'd probably have to not count your picks, just cause I wouldn't be sure what to go by. Hope that's ok with everyone. I like to be a little more lenient in the pre-season since its for practice and ironing out the kinks.
