Rules of Game

Here is a short explanation and it is not scientific as I created this a few years ago in about 4 hours time.

There is a total of 100 points possible each week.

50 points for the score. Basically, you lose .5 for each number away from the score. Let's say you predicted the Redskins to have 30 and the Saints 24 and the actual result is Redskins 31 to Saints 24, then your score total would be 49.5. If you miss badly on this either way, it could be a large hole in your score.

25 for predicting the winner. 0 for getting it wrong.

12.5 each for the tie breakers and these work similarly to the score but use smaller increments.

There were a few players that hit the score exactly last year but I don't believe anyone has registered the perfect 100 score.

Who is going to win the 2012 edition? WhoDatNation985 led from start to finish last year (only time that has happened)

thanks klenz!

It won't let me enter?

The following query in getUserSalt(); failed: mysql_num_rows() == 0
<TT>SELECT salt FROM user WHERE username = 'xsainsationalx'</TT>
<TT>It gives me that error message. Any idea what i'm doing wrong?</TT>

soupcan dan 09-05-2012 06:38 PM

capital "S" maybe?

get aboard! beat bill !

xSaintsationalx 09-05-2012 07:19 PM

Maybe that's it. i'll give it a try. thanks.

Saints & Devils 09-06-2012 04:30 AM

Well, when I win predict the score the Saints win the Superbowl, so I'm just gonna have to come through again this year.... sorry fellas :hihi:

xSaintsationalx 09-06-2012 05:03 PM

I'd be glad to see that happen. All that matters in the end is that the Saints win.

SharonT 09-08-2012 09:12 PM

I'll second the "Just Beat Bill" theme this year. :hihi: I also use the KCBaghead method of picking scores (he used the same one for years in the old contest) which is surprisingly close many times; I just have to remember to play every week. The one week I forget and the Saints win big, I stop playing. :covri: Don't want to jinx it from there on. :D

Bill 09-09-2012 06:30 PM

Well, I'm sure that someone this week predicted with their head rather than their heart. I wanted to do that... by my heart wanted this game too badly to let myself pick the Redskins.

This "Us Against The World" stuff doesn't work in the NFL. You have to 'bring it' every week on offense, defense, and special teams. Right now we have taken a few steps backwards from last year. We have a tough road this year.

I will be adjusting my future predictions accordingly.

Klenzade 09-10-2012 10:59 AM

xSaintsationalx won the week. We sure didn't!

Week 2 is open & ready! <::> Predict the Score

soupcan dan 09-10-2012 07:39 PM

Jared1979 09-16-2012 03:32 PM
