member edits for errors are allowed until the day prior to the week's first game


Weekly entry closing:

Take notice of the first game of the week, all entries must pe posted one hour prior to the beginning of that week's first game starting time, in the above example, it would close 6:00PM EST THU AUG 27.


No Points Spread

For simplicity, this contest is simply picking the winner of each game no points spread are used and no total points for the Monday nights games will be used, this is fun..

Weekly ties?

In the case of ties for the best record of the week, all who sport the most correct picks will be awarded the weekly winners award, however, the challenge for the members is to beat the staff, should there be a tie.. staff wins


Weekly results will be posted on Tuesdays.

Season Winners

Since it is unlikely that the members could defeat the staff experts in the long season, the staff record will not count towards the season standings in regards to the points prize. They will count towards bragging rights.

The cumulative correct pick totals will be posted each Tuesday so we all know where we stand.

Who is eligible?

All members to include writers, fighters, scholars and FSME's are eligible for the contest prizes


Owners Admin SuperMods and Mods are ineligible for points prizes.

Trash Talking and Questions



A little trash talking is to be expected but please keep it clean, T&C's still apply, this is supposed to be a fun contest let's keep it that way. In addition, this thread will be strictly for the picks and results, for trash talking, questions etc. please use the accompanied discussion thread for those conversations


Contest begins

This thread will reopen on Monday September 7 2009 when the first weeks games are posted and the contest begins, good luck, and please have fun!!
