I am thinking of a challenge, where all participants would pick the winner of 5 NFL games.

Essentially, I would link to a page, with ALL NFL games listed for a week.
People could then select any 5 games they choose, and try and correctly pick the winner of those 5 games..... and I can keep a running tally.
The person who correctly picked the winner of the most games for the regular season (ends when the playoffs start) would be the winner.
To sweeten the deal even further, maybe I could twist DrM's arm into making a custom sig banner, or some other board goodie to award to the winner.


I have seen other boards have similar "contests" in the past, and can be a bit of fun.
I also have no problem running this, but I would like at least 4-5 other members including myself to take part.

Obviously, it will be FREE to enter, and the only thing that would be required is to jump in this thread and give 5 picks each week, which would take literally two minutes of your time or less.

I don't see a problem, as this would be super easy for all the members here in our league and if necessary we can start this weekend, and not count Thursday's game. (even non-league members can participate) Creeper played in 1 of my golf challenges, so he is more than welcome to join here also. ;)

If you would be interested in participating in this, speak up now.

Ok, its a done deal.
I am fairly certain that fellow board member Alsunday will play along as well.

I plan on posting the games and cleaning up this thread Friday night.
I will essentially delete the replies already in this post, and start this thread from scratch.(also stating the "rules" and listing the people already stating they will participate) I don't see a need in a new one.
Remember, you can pick any 5 "winners" you like. It truly doesn't matter the game, only the number of "winners" in your picks.
I will keep a running tally, and it should be close enough where many of us should be close enough late in the season, and of course a tie is possible.

DrM has an issue with deleting posts, so if he would rather, we can just lock this thread Friday, whenever I get things going.
I assume DrM has already been tinkering with an idea for a "board prize" such as a sig banner or avatar, but its not mandatory.

Good luck all. The basic "rules" will be forthcoming in the new thread.

Delete is a bad word in my book. We can always move them to a dead topic section.

Tinkering is what I do. I may even have a NFL widget or 2 up my sleeve.

I'd be in. Are we using just the straight up winner or are we using the point spread?

My cousin, who also belongs to the board, said he's in. His username is jcrm316, so include him as well.

No point spreads............ just straight up winners. It gets no easier than this. Pick any 5 games of your choosing and pick the winner. Highest number of winning picks wins the challenge.
In the event of a tie, I already have a way of settling that on the first playoff game as well, which I will explain in detail if and when the time comes.

I should have the post up late Friday night, with the games and basic rules. .. etc etc.
I will also have a deadline to get your picks in, which I am thinking will most likely be Sunday at 11:30 a.m. eastern
This should be no big deal, as I will try and have everything posted late Fridays, so you can have Friday night and all day and night Saturday to post your picks.
