Week # 6 Scenario16-Oct-17 09:02:44 AM
Well we have a funky scenario so try to keep up.....LOL:
If Indianapolis wins then MAGRATS wins.
If Tennessee wins between 1-5 or between 7-11 then Shawn Hudon wins the weekly.
If Tennessee wins by 6 then Tony Pisiak deserves it.
If Tennessee wins by 12 or more then Lonny Monteith is crowned weekly champ.
If the game happens to end in a tie then The Eh Team would surprise everybody for the win.
Good luck to you all.
Week # 5 Results11-Oct-17 02:41:28 PM
Congratulations to #HereWeGo as he went an incredible 12/14 with 2 Bang On's to capture the weekly win.
Ty Beliveau also went 12/14 but with 1 Bang On and no game scores in the 30's to cash in on the 2nd place prize.
Napper41 finished in 3rd place going 10/14 but did connect with 3 Bang On's.
Rounding out the weekly payouts is Brady's Deflated Balls who went 11/14 with a Bang On. Congrats to all of you.
The Survivor Pool continues to make short work of many others as over half of the pool got washed away with the Jaguars upset over the Steelers. Only 63 remain in the Winners Pool and only 46 remain in the Losers.
The League Play has now got two clinched division winners. Congrats to Tyson's Titans and Glenn Robinson who have both already qualified for the next round.
The H2H is down to the Final 16.
DA-FUZZ now has the highest dropped week having a low score of 206.
Corner Pylons has the most wins going an astonishing 53/77 or 69%. A great pace.
"Throwpill" now leads the Sunday Nighters.
Best of luck to all of you in Week 6.
Week # 4 Results03-Oct-17 03:37:23 PM
Well it came down to the final game of the week but Andrew Balchin held off Chad Forman to get the win. Andrew went 13-3 with 2 Bang On's for the weekly win.
Kokanee Camper slid into the # 2 spot going 12-4 also with 2 Bang On's.
Vick in a Box had a great week to finish in 3rd with his 12-4 record.
J-Ville Jack tied for the final money spot with his 10-6 record but had 5 games score 30 or more. He tied Young Gunz who only got into the position because of the final play of the week when the Redskins lateralled the ball around allowing the Chiefs to score and NOT kick the extra point. A lot had to happen and it did. Congrats to you all.
Clayton Clarke leads the overall standings at the quarter pole. Trevor Johnstone and Maximus Decimus Meridius sit atop the podium along side him.
Napper41 leads the way in Bang On's with 10 while Clayton Clarke and Dirty Dan are tied for 2nd with 8. Next closest to them has 6.
Jannett Johnson leads the way Thursday night followed closely behind by Erik Law and The Hali Lama Lover.
On Sunday Nights Liz Hamel leads the pack followed by TJ Watt Watt in second and johnnyg and the Executioners tied for 3rd.
The tightest race is on Monday nights where Maximus Decimus Meridius is slightly ahead of Jim Carpenter and Brett Huber.
The Head 2 Head tournament is down to the final 32 and the league Play is starting to look more clearer with almost coming down to the end of Round 1.
The Survivor took another beating this week as we only have 140 Winner and 141 Loser Survivors remaining. A nice 43 people are still alive in both.
Back to the regular deadline in Week 5 so no excuses to not get your picks in. Best of luck to you all next week.
Week # 4 Scenario02-Oct-17 10:34:33 AM
Pretty simple this week.
If Kansas City wins or if Washington wins by 28 or more then Andrew Balchin is your winner.
If Washington wins between 1-26 then Chad Forman wins the weekly.
If Washington wins by 27 then Andrew and Chad would tie.
The only exception to this is if Kansas City wins by 10 then Kokanee Camper and Andrew would also tie.
Good luck to all of you.
Week # 3 Results29-Sep-17 10:20:33 AM
Well Black&White pulled it out in the end when the Cowboys came through for him to win the weekly. Brad went an astonishing 13-3 in a not so typical week to pull out the victory.
Mike Lanteigne went a just above average 10-6 but was fantastic with his spreads to sneak into 2nd place.
Bill Buchannon was in the lead most of the week but lost the Monday nighter to fall to 3rd with a 11-5 record and 2 Bang On's.
Brett Huber snuck into the $$$ just bypassing Misty Bell for the 4th spot. Who says a missed extra point can't come back to haunt ya.....LOL
The Survivor Pools took another shot this week with another 126 getting the boot in the Winner Pool while 86 are hasta la vista baby in the Loser Pool.
Sunday morning deadline of 6:25am PST is in affect this weekend so get your picks in early.
Good luck to all in Week 4.
Week # 3 Scenario25-Sep-17 01:45:15 PM
If Arizona wins between 1-6 or by 32 or more then Bill Buchannon wins the weekly.
If Arizona wins between 7-31 then Bill and Misty Bell would tie for the weekly.
If Dallas wins then Black & Yellow would win the weekly.
Best of luck to all of you.
This week there is a game in London England. Since it's the first game on Sunday, ALL YOUR PICKS NEED TO BE ENTERED BEFORE 6:25AM PST SUNDAY MORNING.
There is nothing I can do if YOU forget. Take a moment and enter your picks now. You can always change it if you don't get up in time. Hate to see people miss out on a week because they ignored this post.
Week # 2 Results19-Sep-17 03:12:02 PM
The stars aligned for Clayton Clarke. The Gridiron Journeyman finally has won a weekly title being one of the longest winless streaks in the Gridiron history. Clayton went 15-1 and also had 3 Bang On's for a score that would beat the highest score of all of last season. Congrats buddy!!!!
Trevor Johnstone is a rookie but has this strategy down pat as he too went 15-1 and had 2 Bang On's but really cashed in on his spreads to nail down the 2nd place spot.
A familiar name at the top of the standings is Crystal Hudon who finished 3rd this week going 14-2 with 2 Bang On's.
I love when Cowboy fans win money as #GFY only went 13-3 but had a total of 6 games scoring in the 30's to settle in 4th.
As you will see when you search in the Overall standings only your best week is counted. You can find your lower week in the Highest Dropped Week Standings in the drop down menu. If you ever have a lower week than the current lowest score, your newest low score will replace your past low score in this category and your past low score will be calculated in the Overall Standings. Whoever has the Top 4 lowest weeks at season's end will win money as well.
Week # 1 Results13-Sep-17 12:55:35 PM
Congratulations goes out to Raiders Suck as he missed the Kansas City upset but plucked every other win this week with a 14/15 record. Well done Sean.
Donna Buchannon capitalized on her Thursday night upset pick but really made up ground on her accuracy with her spreads. She only got 11/15 correct but with 2 Bang On's and great points on other games vaulted her up to take 2nd spot.
GoldenGram took 3rd place going 12/15 and good spreads and that Gladiator guy (name too long to type) went 13/15 and finished in 4th place to win some money. Way to go Graham and Rick.
The Survivor pools took a hit Week 1 as we lost 127 poolsters in the winner pool and a whopping 178 in the loser pool. Many lost on both in the KC/NE Thursday night game. Ouch!!!!
Just a reminder to get your picks in as we shockingly had 11 poolsters miss week 1. Still early and lots of time to redeem yourself as you may or may not know we only count your best 16 out of the 17 weeks towards your overall standings.
You will notice that after Week 2 plays out that only your best week thus far will count in the Overall standings. This is because of that dropped week. It is a lot easier to remove it now and calculate as we go than shock somebody when we adjust it in Week 17.

Description of Prize Payouts09-Aug-17 10:56:06 AM
For those of you new to the pool and for those who didn't quite get it last season here is a breakdown of the types of standings and other ways to win money.
Overall Standings
I've basically broken down how the points work in the rules (link to the left under Documents). The overall standings is the total of your points from your best 16 out of 17 weeks (you throw your worst week out the window, but it comes back later read on). The Top 20 at the end of the regular season win prize money. Any ties split the total prize money between the tied positions.
Weekly Results
This category is your total points from all of the games for the week. There is one weekly winner, one second place winner and one third place winner each week and 17 weekly and runner up winners throughout the season. Any ties split the weekly winnings.
Highest Dropped Week
This is where your worst week of the season comes back into play. See how your worst week stacks up against your fellow participants. If you fall in the Top 3 you actually win money for a bad week (it can't be too bad though).
Most Bang On's
Bang On's are predictions where you pick the correct team AND the correct spread. If you can average slightly over 1 per week you've done very well for yourself as they are tougher to come by as you would think. Whoever ends up with the 3 highest totals wins $$$ at seasons end.
Most Winners
So you were way off on your spreads throughout the season. You couldn't even come close, fear not as there is a category for you. Back to basics, just picking the winner of the most games by the time the season closes. Top 3 winners get to say "Show me the Money".
Sunday Night Scores
Whenever you see Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and Michele Tafoya on Sunday night is when this category kicks in. Add up all your Sunday night scores throughout the year and see if it earns you some cash. Yes, you guessed it, the Top 3 get paid.
Monday Night Scores
See Sunday Night Scores but replace Al, Cris and Michele with Jon Gruden, Mike Tirico and Lisa Salters.
Playoff Standings
The Gridiron Football Pool also rewards their Top Point getters with a bonus playoff round to win more money. The Top 100 at the end of the season qualify for the Playoffs (no more money required). You basically do the same as you have during the regular season by picking the team and spreads every week but as you start nearing the Super Bowl some people need to start taking chances with either wacky big spreads or pulling for a huge underdog to come through to snag victory out from underneath the leaders feet. Weird things happen but you're never safe until the Vince Lombardi trophy is raised. The Top 5 win money.
Head 2 Head Tournament
Do nothing more than enter your picks and enjoy the game. This little tournament gives you something else to pull for during the season. Starting in Week 1, you have a chance to be the last poolster standing. Each week you will be facing off against someone else in the pool. You will be able to see their picks after the deadline and then you can compare which games you have different and cheer on those games. Win and you move on, lose and you're done. The Top 3 winners win money (if you make the Top 4 the losers in the semi-finals play each other for 3rd place). Don't worry if you get knocked out early because we start all over again in Week 9 and do it again one more time.
Here is the tie breaker procedure:
1. Most wins
2. Most Bang On's
3. Best score in prior week
4. Best score 2 weeks prior etc.
Please click on the Display Head 2 Head link to the left for the bracket and find yourself and who you face (coming once participants are finalized).
League Play is returning. With 512 poolsters, we will start the season with 64 groups of 8. Everybody plays everyone in their division once and after 7 weeks whoever is on top of their division will move onto the next round. Starting Week 8, the 64 division leaders will be reseeded and broken into 8 divisions of 8 poolsters and once again everybody plays everybody in their division once. Division winners will move onto the Round of 8 and play single elimination bracket for the final 3 weeks of the season. Only the strong will survive this league.
Tiebreaker Rules
1. Head to Head
2. Most points in the Round currently playing
3. Most Wins in Round
4. Most Bang On's
5. Most Points in Overall Standings
6. Whatever
The Survivor Pools
Winner Pool - Select a winner each week. If they win you move onto the following week lose and you're out. The catch is that you cannot pick the team that you selected again for the balance of the season.
Loser Pool - Same as the winner pool but you select a team to lose. If you select a team to win you CAN select the same team to lose in the Loser pool.
The Second Chance Survivor Pool - Starting in Week 9 everybody will have another chance to win the Survivor Pool. This one is a little different though. You will have to choose a team to win and a team to lose. You have to win BOTH to advance AND you have to select teams playing in separate games (can't pick a winner and loser that are playing each other) to move onto the next week and both those choices will be removed from your pick selection list.
The money breakdown will be up shortly as well once I determine the amount of poolsters and the breakdown of all the different prizes. (Click on Money Distribution for last seasons disbursements)
Gridiron Web Features09-Aug-17 11:21:00 AM
For all the standings for each individual category please click on the Display Results & Standings and click on the drop down box titled Select Standing Type. This will show you the standings for the Most Wins, Most Bang On's, Most Sunday night points, Most Monday night points, Best Dropped Week and the Wed/Thur Night Category. You can also select a year to reminisce how you fared in seasons past. The dropped week will come into play starting Week 2. When you notice that after Week 2 that only one week was recorded it is because you don't count your lowest week at seasons end. The Overall Standings will always calculate your total score minus your lowest week.
One of the newer features that Rae has installed on the web site is the Compare Player Picks link to the left. Use this feature to to see how you stack up against your opponenet for the week. The games you have different will be bolded to easily see which games mean the most to win and view the results and compare how the spread points differ between the two sets of picks.
The Head 2 Head tourney starts Week 1 so click on Display Head 2 Head. Underneath the Cowboys picture there is a link titled Jump to my Name. Click on this link and it will show you where you are on the flow chart and it should be highlighted. Win you move on lose and your out.
Click on Display Survivor Results to see how you and others fared in the Dog Eat Dog world of the Survivor Pool.
Highlight your friends in your standings. Click on Edit Profile in the top right corner of the page. Select the Display Name or the Player name of your friend and then click on ADD FRIEND (I always forget that part). Once that is done they will be highlighted on your standings page as well. Select as many or as little as you want.
Survivor Rules14-Aug-14 12:26:42 PM
Once you get your password (which you only get once you pay) and click on Enter My Picks, you will notice at the top of the page a box with an arrow pointing to it titled Survivor Pick. Every week you will select a team to outright win the game. If they win you advance to the next week. If they lose then you are done for the season. That sounds easy enough, what’s the catch. The catch is you are only allowed to select a team once per season. Once you’ve selected a team you can no longer pick them so it gets tougher as you go along.
Your pick MUST be in before the deadline of Sunday at 9:55 PST. If you forget, you’re out of luck.
On the left side of the screen, click Display Survivor Results and you will be able to see the other Survivor picks 5 minutes prior to opening kickoff.
We also have a Loser Survivor Pool as well. Same as the picking the winner as in seasons past but this one who have to pick the losers.
The prize payout will be determined once the field of participants has been established. If more than 1 of you survive all 17 weeks you will split the prize pot between yourselves. If more than one of you are eliminated at the same time but are the last group remaining you will split the pot.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to fire off your questions and I would be happy to share them with the group.
