2015

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. Games will be noted with a star after them. Your tip will not count if it is past the time, even by one minute, which will be about 2½ hours prior to kickoff. For US Thanksgiving Day (Week 13), all three games must be tipped by the Thursday morning (FT time) deadline.


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. If a favorite changes after the favorites are posted, we will use the favorites originally posted by the organizer. A game with a PK spread is always the home team per our Football Locks website.

Welcome to the 2015 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 22. 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 solely BxBarracuda. Two returning participants from years past: KrivoyRog after a one year hiatus, and ElfTwinkle after a multi-year hiatus, and a warm welcome to CmdrK...hey, Cmdr, how's about asking a few of your buddies to join us? We don't bite around here, but we do have a great time!

Srini701 starts atop our leaderboard just as he did last year, with ElfTwinkle a point back, and six others only one behind her.

Only ozzz2002, ElfTwinkle, and toocool4u knew something would brew in St. Louis that the rest of us didn't...the Rams would win at home. Granted, it took OT to get it...

As the season progresses, someone will have their name in lights, and some may not be in the best of circumstances, as is gillyharold 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 former home team...he was 10-6 last year, 12-4 the previous two, and 14-2 the year before that. He's 1-0 to start this year, but only because the Giants mis-managed the clock, considering they had three takeaways from the Cowboys. He's also 1-0 picking his new "home" team...

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!)


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.

How anyone was able to solve this mess and get ten is astounding, with half of the favored teams losing, but KrivoyRog was able to do just that. He had his crystal ball working some overtime.

Three players should have gone default, as three others are breathing a sigh of relief going 6/16. We had gtho4, srini701, and themonarch all hit on only 5/16.

Bonus points were as prevalent this week as last, with both toocool4u and ozzz2002 taking their second each, and wwe84 and our new leader, KrivoyRog, took the other two.

KrivoyRog sees a bottleneck right behind him, as we have seven players only one point in arrears, and fifth from last is only four points behind the leader.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he's 1-1 after not believing in them after Philly usually makes mincemeat of them at home, however, things will probably change now that both Romo and Dez are out for several weeks. He's also 1-1 picking his new "home" team...as everyone missed that one.

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!)

Plenty of bonus points went out this week, as seven of us (all noted with a "b") scored 13/16 to take the weekly win and a bonus point to boot...all seven had at least two underdogs. Poor LeoDaVinci didn't do as well, only hitting half and taking this week's Spoon.

The Patriots showed how to hang "half a hundred" as they scored 51 on the lowly Jaguars, which all of us snagged. It was the only game to go all the same across the board, and three other games, a late Sunday game, the Sunday nightcap, and tonight's matchup all had 21 jag it.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he's 2-1 after they went out to a big lead but let it slip away to Julio Jones. He's also 2-1 picking his new "home" team...as no one knows what is going on with them. I'll also say LeoDaVinci is 1-2 picking his team...which is the same as their record, considering he wasn't expecting Kaepernick to throw FOUR INTs!!

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!)

Musical chairs aplenty again this week. There were only six that stayed even.

A few games went to the way of the bonus point...ozfei must have known the good playing Eli would show up in Buffalo, and ozzz2002 had faith in Nick Foles that the rest of us didn't in Arizona. Two games were picked by everyone...Philip Rivers had a great day at home against the Browns, and Colin Kaepernick got beaten by Aaron Rodgers and company (yes, even our resident Niners fan picked against his favorite team!)

Three games didn't get decided in sixty minutes, so they got to play a little extra football...both Indianapolis and Pittsburgh figured they needed about 70 minutes in front of their fans, but Indianapolis came out on the right side with their fans...

KrivoyRog is our first defaulter of the season, and as such, he scored eight, which is equal to the Spoon score, as default is always higher of Wooden Spoon or a straight six points.

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he's 2-2 after they decided to let New Orleans come back into it, then allow Drew Brees to hit a milestone TD...in OT...on the first play from scrimmage. He's 2-2 picking his new "home" team...as no one knows what is going on with them still...they are too inconsistent. LeoDaVinci is 2-2 picking his team...he had to figure Rodgers would finally get the best of Colin Kaepernick.

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!)

We're still playing musical chairs, unless you are atop the leaderboard or on the bottom. N-Bomb split off by one, but the top four are still in the same place.

Three games didn't get decided in sixty minutes, so they got to play a little extra football...one game went as planned (Atlanta stayed perfect), one went opposite as planned (Cleveland was picked by no one), and one was almost split (Cincinnati won over Seattle).

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his former home team...he's 3-2 after they got walloped by New England in town. He's 3-2 picking his new "home" team...they came back and tied it late, but gave up a pick-6 in OT. LeoDaVinci is 3-2 picking his team...which is better than his team is faring!!

I'm two days late due to making an unexpected trip from Virginia to Missouri via Texas. No more flying for this bloke in 2015 (I hope).

Just a reminder: if you only pick one underdog, you are ineligible for bonus points, and I know exactly how many are picked. PaulE picked only the Monday night game different than the favorites, hence, he did not earn a bonus for his 12/14 picks.

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!)

I fully expect the next write-up to explain the logic behind the Colts' fake punt.

I think the better one would be the guy that jumped the line to block the PAT late in the game...
