Regular Season Week # 2 Date: 9/19/2010

The week one winning board was the Buccaneers. The message of the week from the winning board comes from player (-ts); "We need more enemy fans involved to really compare IMO. I like that aspect of picking against them."

- I do to, especially when we win...hehehe - conrad77

This challenge will have an official prize. It will be a Premier NFL Jersey from NFL Shop.

All are welcome!
Join the fun!

REGULAR SEASON RULES
Here's how it's done. To play, working with the spread, you pick four games each week, ONLY from the list posted below. If playing that week, any individual games not picked will be considered a loss. All games with NFCS teams are included, except Thursday/Friday games. The spread will come from FootballLocks.com once all NFCS numbers are known.
All initial point spreads that end in a WHOLE number will have .5 added by the moderator and will be included in the numbers you see posted below, so there can be no ties.

There is also a tiebreaker to determine the weekly Champ and it will always be GROSS passing yards for team selected, usually the Bucs.

POSTING YOUR SELECTIONS-PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Except for byes and when a NFCS team is playing each other, the first choice for selections will be NFCS teams. Otherwise, the moderator will select other games played on a SUNDAY, as need be, to make it four games.

To be in the running for the seasonal Champ, you need to have played at least half the games to date. To win the overall title, you need to have played ten weeks (40 games) and must have also played one of the final two weeks. (Can start as late as week 8 if you play all the remaining games.) The seasonal Champion is determined by best picking PERCENTAGE, NOT by the most number of wins.

Anyone can win the weekly Champ if you play 4 games in any given week!

When picking the tie breaker it will the one closest. If one is over and one is under, the tie goes to the player under. Example: If the passing yards number is 250. If someone picks 251 and someone else picks 249, the one with 249 wins.

Deadlines for entering is Noon each Sunday for games that week.
However, if there is an NFCS game on Saturday, the cutoff is NOON SATURDAY. Posts or changes after those times will not be considered.

Reports:
There are two reports:
1. Current weeks results, which includes naming the weekly Champ, the winning board (percentage of wins) and a listing of all who played that week.
2. YTD. It lists all who have played and their percentages.

Most of all, have fun and enjoy!

This weeks games and the spreads are:

Game #1 Bucs +2.5 @ Carolina -2.5
Game #2 Cardinals + 6.5 @ Falcons -6.5
Game #3 Steelers +5.5 @ Titans -5.5
Game #4 Dolphins +5.5 @ Vikings -5.5

(IE, if you pick the Vikings to win, they must win by 5.5 points {realistically 6 points since you can't score 5.5...} in order for you to get the win. If you picked the Vikings and they won by only 3 points, you would not get the win.)

This weeks tiebreaker team is: Bucs (Gross Passing Yards)

Good Luck!

Understood, an evil admin might leave the saints out for week 3 just to make you put on that jersey.
Stop it. You are going to give me bad dreams. Actually, I would wear any Saints jersey for a week straight before I put on a Falcons or....a dirty Panthers jersey...I just threw up in my mouth a little thinking about it. It's funny but our board is actually more accepting of the Saints than several teams outside of our division (Eagles, Packers, Cowboys).

Anyway, keep up the good work, your numbers are already higher for the week. Let' see if you can hit 20!

Okay, so I am working on the prize option and we are going to set the number at 20. If we get 20 participants on each board then we will include a prize of some sort for the season winner. FWIW, the prize would be football related and have a value higher than $100. I am thinking a choice of player or custom premier jersey. Any thoughts?
