2013

Season



The NFL preseason is beginning, hence the NFL season is just a few weeks away.

Rules:
  1. One point for a correct tip.
  2. Deadline is always Friday midnight FT time. One point will be deducted for late tips, after a period of grace of two hours past the deadline. (see below for Thursday issue)
  3. Late starters come in at the lowest score, or lowest active tipper if the lowest tipper has not tipped for four consecutive weeks.
  4. Default score will be a straight six points, unless wooden spoon score is higher.
  5. Tips not in by kickoff Sunday receive default score.
  6. Thursday games: tips must be in at the time specified on threads with a Thursday game. Your tip will not count if it is past the time, which will be about two hours prior to kickoff.


Bonus points:
  1. One point will be awarded for a solo pick (or one of two if 12+ tippers, or one of three if 20+).
  2. One point if a player scores 12+/13, 12+/14, 13+/15, or 13+/16.
  3. Ineligible for bonus if player picks all homes or all bar one.
  4. Ineligible for bonus if player tips all the favored teams for the week or all bar one. New: If a favorite changes after the favorites are posted, we will use the favorites originally posted. A game with a PK spread is always the home team per our footballlocks website.

Welcome to the 2013 NFL season tipping comp! Trash talking is allowed, but remember to keep it within the FT rules. If I can handle 29 in a comp, I can certainly handle 21. wink Bring on any more takers and let's see if we can get to 30! The all-time record in any FT comp is 32 participants. No shows from last year are doomed, szabs, PaulE, MikeMaster99, and chogobad. Welcome to the new tippers this year, tiggerjake13. We don't bite around here, but we do have a great time!

Paper_aero takes the first win with 13, but as he only picked one underdog (see below), he did not get a bonus point for his efforts.

As the season progresses, someone will have their name in lights, and some may not be in the best of circumstances, as is wwe84 this week by taking the first Spoon of the season. We have 16 weeks more where one's name could be announced! wink

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his home team...he was 12-4 last year, and 14-2 the year before. He's 1-0 to start this year.

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper).

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. (point after touchdown) too!)


Spreads for each week are found here: http://www.footballlocks.com/nfl_point_spreads.shtml
If the spread is PK the favorite for the tipping comp will be the team on the left, on that page.

BxBarracuda's Jets lost, and his picks the rest of the week fell down the pike, taking this week's Spoon, meanwhile, gtho4 is basking in the Hawaiian sun, and takes a weekly win while out on vacation.

PaulE missed last week, but with his stellar picks this week, he falls in joint 6th with six others.

Lots of bonuses go out this week, as two games had three picks, and four players earned near miss points for 13+/16.

We only get into Week 2 to see our first defaulter, tiggerjake.

Is that what I think it is? Did Leo's Niners get demolished in Seattle? shocked

As second through 16th is only four points apart, we will see the musical places once more next week.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his home team...he's 2-0 to start this year.

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked.

Any inactive tippers who tip and are below 2nd last, their score will jump to 2nd last, however, if they are above 2nd last, they will not lose points to fall to 2nd last (or the lowest active tipper)

Until next week, everyone, score a touchdown! (...and kick a P.A.T. too!)

If the spread is PK the favorite for the tipping comp will be the team on the left, on that page.
