2011

Season



Rules:

  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 - late in season)
  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. New: 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+ tippers).
  2. One point if a player scores 12+/13, 12+/14, 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.

    Sign up here if you are interested! smile You can also sign up to see if we can keep a trend going...this will be the 12th annual NFL comp, and we have had 11 different winners. Will this year finally break the streak?

Just remember...11 of us have said that. The only one to repeat anything is Sypher and his 2nd place streak.

Remember to get your picks in, Terry! Just over six hours left on the Saints/Packers game.

Welcome to the 2011 NFL season tipping comp! Trash talking is allowed, but remember to keep it within the FT rules. We have 23 runners this year. No shows from last year (and there are several) are brownie83, ConzaBhoy, davegrilla, jonnowales, Nightmare, pyonir, and 7pinky7. Welcome to the sole new tipper this year, rxbigdawg. We don't bite around here, but we do have a great time!

As for the comp, gtho4 takes off to a single point lead over several at 11 each. Four people take the cutlery this week, incuding the Head Honcho. The other twist is the only bonus point goes to ozzz2002 for his brave pick of Buffalo winning at Arrowhead, although they did it in fashion...41-7!

We'll see how the comp organizer does against his home team...he was 11-5 last year. He's already 1-0 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!)


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.
