Week # 3 Scenario26-Sep-22 09:47:17 PM
Very simple this week.
If NY Giants win the Steveston Bills win the weekly.
If Dallas wins then Will Dogg is your winner.
Rooting for you Will Dogg.......LOL
Would be very happy for Steveston Bills though if they won.
Week 2 Summary22-Sep-22 10:44:14 AM
Shout out goes out to Ryan Peet who didn't even need the 2nd Monday night game to clinch victory for the week.
Ryan went 12-4 with 3 Bang On's to cruise to the win.
James Donald rolled into 2nd as he tied for the most wins this week with 13 along with Stink eye!! who finished tied for 3rd spot with Tyler Geremia to cash in edging out Steve Werning who missed out on the money by one point.
Pittsburgh at Cleveland matchup tonight so don't forget to get your pick in for tonight.  Las Catrinas and Git-R-Done might want to do all your picks so you don't forget on Sunday morning....LOL
Good luck to all in Week 3.
Week 1 Summary13-Sep-22 12:21:27 PM
Congratulations goes out to FLIPFLOPPIN for a great week.  She went 12-4.  Although Klev20 went 13-3 to get 3rd spot, FLIPFLOPPIN's spread points were a little more accurate to get the edge.  Kyle Bedford grabbed 2nd to round out the Top 3.
The big surprise this week was the Survivor pools that took a beating in Week 1.  In both pools, 60% of the poolsters have been eliminated reducing the pools from 512 to just over 200 poolsters remaining in both sections.  For those of you already eliminiated (we included) no worries as the Second Chance Survivor Pool starts in Week 9 so we get a second crack at it.
I was very happy with the amount of people entering their picks this week as we only had one participant forget to get their Sunday picks in and everyone that got picks in remembered their Survivor picks.  Don't forget to enter your picks for Thursday night and remember you could enter all the games this week on Thursday and adjust them as you see fit at any point before the Sunday deadline but at least you would have picks in in case you sleep in.
Best of luck to you in Week 2.
Week # 1 Scenario13-Sep-22 12:07:39 PM
Well we are off and running. Some faster than others mind you.....LOL
If Seattle wins outright then FLIPFLOPPIN easily wins the weekly.
If Denver wins between 1-9 or by 36 or more then duff beer FC would be the winner.
If Denver wins between 10-13 then Geoffrey Legg would be crowned champ.
If Denver wins between 14-34 then One Cheek Sneak would pull off the BIG win.
If Denver wins by 35 then duff beer FC and One Cheek Sneak would tie for the prize.
Best of luck to all 4 of you.
SURVIVOR PICK !!!10-Sep-22 10:54:00 AM
Please remember to enter your Survivor picks located in the RED box located above the rest of your picks on the pick sheet. The deadline for the Survivor pick will remain on Sunday to allow all those who miss the early games of the week a chance to still pick a game remaining. Obviously if you put in your pick after the Thursday game then those Thursday teams will not be eligible to pick from. Hopefully this helps everyone.....if you SURVIVE!!!!!
Things you need to know10-Sep-22 10:55:08 AM
Well we are all ready to go. Everyone should have your password. If you don't then please let me know so I can make sure you are good to go.
Many of you have started to enter your picks and that is awesome. Just a reminder that the Survivor Pool starts up and those BIG SWIRLING RED ARROWS are there to help remind you that you still need to enter the Survivor Picks. The deadline is Sunday morning but if you want the Thursday night game then that pick has to be in before the Thursday deadline. Also make sure you enter the TEAM AND THE MARGIN OF VICTORY some people forget about the margin of victory. A reminder will pop up but some just ignore it.
Some of you have already found out how to insert a team name you want to display. If you want to use a Team name simply click on Edit Profile in the Top right corner and enter the name you wish to participate with in the Display Name box. Sometimes it's tough to find your friends when they change their team name which is why we have the Friends List so you can easily find your friends in the Standings as they will be highlighted (you are as well) to find your friends easily. The Display Name (your team nickname) will lock on Sunday so if you wish to use this feature please make sure you have the name you wish to use before then. I will be removing any profound or distasteful names so please make sure the names are PG13. Greatly appreciated.
League Play is back (see the Display League Play link on the left) and I'm very excited about this as you will start your season in a Group of 8, play everybody in your group once and at the end if you win your division you move onto the next round. Just like the H2H bracket, you will obtain easy access to find which division you are in by clicking on the JUMP TO MY POOL link above Pool # 1. Below your pool you can click on SHOW SCHEDULED MATCHUPS to see who's playing who in your division that week. Standings will be updated after the Monday night game is recorded.
For those that don't know, there will also be two Head to Head (H2H) tournaments (see the Display Head 2 Head link on the left). Single round elimination, win and move on, lose and you're out. Somebody has to win. Why not you?
That should be it. Once again if you have ANY questions about the website, scoring process or any else about the pool, please don't hesitate to contact me. That's why I'm here. Best of luck to all of you and I hope you enjoy the pool.

Where in the World......01-Jun-21 09:27:54 AM
......can you join a fun football pool which pays over $38,000 in a season for a one time fee of $80????
What do you get for your $80 you ask:
Entries into - not 1 but 3 Survivor Pools, 2 Tournament brackets, 1 League Play, 18 chances to win 1 of 4 weekly prizes each week, too many season long competitions to name them all (read in previous messages below) and lots more. And it's as easy as taking 5 minutes a week to enter your picks.
What are you waiting for? Contact me now to get started. Read below for more details.
Description of Prize Payouts01-Jun-21 09:27:03 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, one third place winner, and one fourth 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 5 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 5 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 5 winners get to say "Show me the Money".
Thursday Night Scores
Commentators Joe Buck and Troy Aikman with sideline reporter Erin Andrews lead this nights scoring. Accumulate points on this evening and all the US Thanksgiving games throughout the season. Top 5 get paid here as well.
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 5 get paid.
Monday Night Scores
See Sunday Night Scores but replace Al, Cris and Michele with Joe Tessitore, Booger McFarland, 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 10 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 4 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 in the winner pool 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 link under Documents to the left for disbursements)
Gridiron Web Features14-Aug-20 10:51:23 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 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 opponent 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.
