Finally Posted September 28, 2009 Share Posted September 28, 2009 If you didn't make a pick last week or have not made picks at all see Rule #2 for how you can catch up.Both NFC south games count double this week and since the NFC north are both divisional games they each count double as well. Since you are only allowed to miss 3 weeks and still play this is obviously the last week someone new can join the game.Please make your picks clear. Don't just quote someone else's pick and agree because it might get missed. If you change your mind before the deadline edit your first set of picks do not add a second set.All picks due by Friday 12pm (EST)DISCLAIMER:This contest and prize are being provided by me personally and none of it is affiliated with the Falcons organization or the NFL in any way.Game Rules and Prize Information:1. All picks have to be posted before the established deadline. Picks made after will be ignored.2. This is a message board so allowances have to be made for missing weeks. You can miss up to 3 weeks (if there is time left in the season) but you must make picks in the NFC North for every week you miss so that by the end of the season you have made picks for 17 weeks. 3. The final score or how close the score was doesn't matter.4. The results of previous weeks will be posted as soon as I have time to tally them.5. During Bye weeks 1 or both games will count for double. If it is a single team bye week I will notify you which game counts for double at the beginning of the week for both the south and the north.6. Division games always count for double points.7. The prize will be awarded at the end of the season or as soon as a tie breaker can settle the outcome.8. If you win you will need to PM me your email address so you can receive the online certificate. I suggest that you NOT use a work email address because it coming directly from the NFL Shop and it might get caught in your company's spam filter. If you have home spam protection you will need to make sure the email can get through or set up a hotmail account. If you have any doubts whether or not the email can come through I strongly suggest setting up an account with one of the reputable free email services. I would HATE if I spent the money and no one got to enjoy the prize. However, if it gets caught or rejected I will not be responsible if you cannot collect your prize.What are you playing for?$75FAQ:How can you be sure no one will edit their post before you tally the scores?I prefer to think that everyone will be honest however I do print the thread after the deadline to lock in the results.How can someone catch up if there are less than 4 games in the North? Explain the scoring system.To keep it simple there are 4 possible points each week regardless of how many games are played. In a divisional game you have the opportunity of getting 2 right or 2 wrong. Division games can be the hardest ones to predict so there is some method to this madness. Besides, anything else would require a really elaborate system and let's face it, it is only a $75 prize.What happens if you (Finally) wins?If I win I will be an insufferable gloat intent on proclaiming to anyone who will listen how I won and you all are miserable losers. I will give a whole new dimension to the term bad winner. However, I do intend to give out a prize so the runner-up (least of the losers) will collect the prize.
