2009 Football Pick'em Contests
New to the Pick'ems?
Welcome to Year Nine of our Pick'em games - and for the fifth year in a row there are three separate contests: The NFL Pick'em, the College Football Pick'em, and the NFL Pointspread Contest.
In the NFL and College Football Pick'ems, simply select the team from the 10 featured games in each week's respective thread whom you think will win and list them in your post. For the game designated as the tie-breaker (the Monday night game in the NFL Pick'em) you must also post the total combined score of the game in addition to the winning team.
The NFL Pointspread Contest requires participants to select the team that will cover the point spread in each game, and unlike in the NFL and College Football Pick'ems above, every NFL game played on Sunday or Monday night that week is included in this contest. In addition, each participant must designate three of the picks as "Best Bets." For further details, see the digest of rules for the Pointspread Contest.
New This Year: The maximum number of pickers each week in the NFL Pointspread Contest is sixteen (16). It's strictly first-come, first-served - so don't wait too long before making your picks (this is being done to minimize the advantage that late pickers often have due to more information about injuries, etc.).
In the NFL and College Football Pick'ems, the first-place finisher each week will receive 500 points, while second place will be worth 400 points, third place 300 points, fourth place 200 points, and all other entrants will receive 100 points. This encourages you to play each week because you are guaranteed to receive points for participation.
In the NFL Pointspread Contest, a total of 1,000 points will be awarded each week and, as in the two Pick'ems, there is also a guaranteed score for participating, with descending scores for each place across the entire field. For further details, click here.
The deadline for posting your picks in all three contests is the kickoff of the earliest game listed. You may not post picks after any game in that particular contest has started as your selections will be disregarded. Furthermore, do not complain about the games selected to be included in the Pick'ems — there is nothing scientific or exact about it. The goal therein is to pick the 10 best, most competitive games, period. With that said, good luck!
You can be bitter - but I will be better.
DIAL DOWN THE DIALOGUE!
