The Rules

Aside from the “general play” rules listed on the lower portion of this page, we have “the legal stuff”. We know you’re all just here for some good natured smack talk and FUN! Buuuut, in the event someone tries to “pee in the pool” and ruin the fun for all…

“WINNING is not everything–but making the EFFORT to win is.”

Vince Lombardi

  1. Each player picks a manager-configured number of games for the week, straight up. Points are awarded for each correct pick (a win is worth 1). If the game ends in a tie, 1/2 the assigned point value is awarded. The player with the most points at the end of the season wins bragging rights! The local celebrity (those invited into the studio to share their picks) with the highest point total, wins annual custody of the Pickin Pros in Our Town Trophy (please note, the trophy is NOT THE GRAND PRIZE)
  2. Each week there will be one “tie-breaker game” where you will be guessing the total points scored in that game. This is used to break ties during the week for any weekly prizes. A running total is also kept of your tie-breakers. 
  3. You must have your football game picks in before the start of the first game for the week. After you submit your picks, you can edit them provided: 1) the league’s configured deadline has not past, 2) the configured grace period has not elapsed, 3) a game has not started that you already picked.
  4. If you do not get your picks submitted before an early game (such as a Thursday game), you can still submit picks provided the configured league deadline is sometime after the game.
WEEKLY PRIZE ($25 gift certificate to Cool Hand Lukes) goes to the player with the highest point total FOR THAT GIVEN WEEK. Only the current week’s tally is calculated for this. It does not include the running highest seasonal point total.
EACH WEEKLY WINNER WILL EARN ONE ENTRY INTO THE FINAL GRAND PRIZE DRAWING FOR A BIG SCREEN TV (courtesy of Cravello Insurance Services). Please note that if an individual wins multiple weeks during the season, they will still only gain ONE entry into the grand prize drawing.

IF needed to determine weekly prize winner
1) Best tie-breaker for the week
2) Best strength of victory for the week  
3) Best overall winning %
4) Best total tie-breakers  

IF needed to determine “local celebrity guests” end of season winner: Final Standings, Total Points (Trophy winner)
1) Best overall winning %
2) Best overall strength of victory  
3) Best total tie-breakers
