Welcome to the best football group of friends ever. We are within the week of the 2020-21 kickoff. Please allow me to present the Rules of Road for this season. Looking forward to getting back to football and seeing you all on here again. Please tell your football loving friends that we have a great group and come join us to make it even better.
No big changes for this year. None during the regular season and just a couple for the playoffs and Super Bowl. LMT, and her side kick Lukie (he presents the games weekly to us) as well as myself agreed on two changes.
1. We decided that the Playoff and Superbowl games will offer extra points for both each game selected correctly and has the correct point total of any game selected correctly. These extra points will equal the amount of the value of the game. Therefore we pick the game and indicate the total number of points in the game, and if you win the game you get that value and if you also determined the total points scored in the game you get the additional amount which equals the value of that game. You must win the game to get the extra points.
2. The other change is that you could only pick ONCE the total points scored in the Super Bowl. This is so that participants don't
jockey for position for the tie breaker rules.
That's it: No other changes, but the rules as previously presented by LMT are as follows:
WE all pick the games each week. The picks aren't based on any kind of odds, simply a win or loss ( ties will not count as a win and therefore will not be rewarded any points). Points are rewarded for a win. Lukie will usually post the games weekly.
Each week during the regular season only, there is a need to select a "bonus" game. Select the weekly bonus game and if you get that right, you get an extra point. Once you select the bonus game, you can't change it. So be careful with that.
Attester will tally the wins each week and those tallies are usually posted the following Tuesday. Attester will give year to date updates every five weeks.
Regarding the time table of making your games picks, you may CHANGE any pick on any game as long as it is done prior to kickoff of the game. The reason for this is due to injuries, suspensions, etc as it might impact our thoughts of an outcome of a game.
The point season for the regular season is 1 point for each win plus an additional 1 point for the bonus game.
Playoff Wildcard games is 2 points for each win plus equal additional points for determining the total points of any winning game.
Playoff Division games is 4 points for each win plus equal additional points for determining the total points of any winning game.
Playoff Conference games is 6 points for each win plus equal additional points for determinng the total points of any winning game.
Super Bowl games is 10 points for a winning selection plus equal additional points for determining the total points of the winning game. Tie breaker rules may be determined with this game.
The winner is the participant with the most points after the Super Bowl and will be rewarded with the Fake Lombardi Trophy.
Any questions now or during the season, please address them to LMT, Lukie or myself. Good luck and please invite your friends to join us.
