I AM PREPARED TO RUN HOGNOSTICATIONS

Postby DarthMonk » Mon Aug 26, 2013 4:26 pm

Time is running short and I want this to continue. I have something set up and will run with it if I get a little feed back.

Yahoo! did not have the options I wanted for scoring. Nor did ESPN.

CBS has an option where if you forget to make picks, your score is one less than the worst set of picks that week. That way you aren't gone for a missed week. It also buys us a little time.

Weekly tie-break is MNF total points.

No yearly tie-break but I love Deadman's % error on MNF for whole year and would do that by hand over Xmas break if it came to that.

Please reply!!!

That is an end-of-year tie break if two or more guys have the same total on correct picks for the entire year.

I then compute the %error they had all 17 weeks and average that. This way, the whole year counts, not just week 17.

So far it's me, you, and Deadman so, by all means, you can defend - if you're in, that is.

I have a huge project at work that will, with NO doubt, result in me forgetting to post my picks several times...

Don't we usually run this in ATL? Start it there... If we have to move it we can do it later.

Once you get your link post up, I'll make it a sticky.

Is this going to be on a site where a person can select the winning team by "filling in the bubble" or is it going to be where a person has to post on this thread and keep track of shizzy that way?

The link is in Around the League. It's a sticky up top. Go there to join.

Players will use their mouse or something similar to select teams online. I will look into posting selections for all to see. Hognosticators can see all picks online once the games start.

I will definitely post results here weekly for all to see.

So if you play you will be a "bubble boy."

:wink:

We are up to 8 players.

Link is in Around the League.
