Welcome to the 28th Annual Gridiron Football Pool!!!!!!13-Aug-22 02:20:36 PM
Is it that time of the year already??? I hope this email finds you all safe. Sorry for my tardiness as I'm usually sending this out about a week ago but
Welcome back to the Gridiron Football Pool. Here is the link to the website gridironfootballpool.com. The entry fee this season remains at $80CDN ($62US). All returnees are guaranteed their spot for the upcoming season as long as their entry fee has been paid by August 31st. On September 1st, the remaining spots will be available on a first come first paid basis and will close on September 7th. Please let me know if you are planning on returning or not so I can plan accordingly. Rookies wanting to join can reserve a spot by payment. The sooner the better. You can send them the attachment for more clarity regarding the pool.
Here is a list of options so that you can choose what payment is easiest for you:
1. If you have a Coast Capital Savings Account the easiest and no fee charge way to do it is transfer the money to Membership # 5561977. Please make sure you leave your name in the message so I know who it is from or send me an email so I'm not guessing (if you don't then I don't know who it is from !!!!).
2. Bank e-transfer - Please use gridironfootballpool@gmail.com as the address. I have it as an auto-deposit so no password is required.
3. Pay Pal - There is a fee on my end so if you choose this option please send $84.00CDN ($65US). Once again send fees to gridironfootballpool@gmail.com.
4. Mail (must receive in my hands by Aug 31st) or drop off at:
#32 - 16772 61 Avenue
Surrey, BC
V3S 4P2
Please remember that when using option #4, you won't be set up until I RECEIVE the cheque. If you drop it off, please contact me first to make sure I'm home. Use the entrance right off the street on 61st as the back entrance is only access to the garage and you'll be standing there forever wondering why I'm not answering.
I'm looking forward to another great year and I hope you have fun.
Week # 18 - Weekly Scenario10-Jan-22 01:39:25 PM

Weekly
Kyle Belford - If Chargers win between 1-6 or if Raiders win by 10 or more.
Easy Breesy Take A Kneesy - If Chargers win by 7 or more
Kissmefirst - If Raiders win between 1-8.
Kyle and Kissmefirst would tie if Raiders win by 9.
Sunday Night
Coco-loco - If Chargers win between 1-5 or if Raiders win by 14 or more
Coco-loco and #TitanUp would tie if Chargers win between 6-14
Carter Mooney - If Chargers win by 15 or more
Brad Pitts Cousin - If Raiders win between 1-6
Bronconation Omaha - If Raiders win between 7-12.
Coco-loco and Bronconation would tie if Raiders win by 13.
The Overall Gridiron Title comes down to the final game
If Raiders win or if Chargers win by 28 or more then #HereWeGo is your Champ
If Chargers win between 1-26 then trainwreck takes the title.
They would share it if Chargers win by 27.
The League Champ has been finalized with your Winner being Mustangs who won this grueling challenge.
The H2H Tourney is still up for grabs:
Donny M - If Raiders win or if Chargers win by 19 or more
#TitanUp - If Chargers win between 1-18.
Good luck to everyone !!!!!!!!!!
Week # 17 - Weekly Scenario03-Jan-22 12:10:21 PM
With so much on the line with every win or loss in the NFL leading up to the playoffs, the same goes for the Gridiron.
The weekly is pretty clear cut.
If Cleveland wins POLK HIGH is your weekly winner
If Pittsburgh wins Crystal is your weekly winner.
Good luck to both of you.
League Play
Pool 1 - Vick in a Box has clinched the # 1 seed and will advance to the finalsFadez clinched a berth to the consolation round and will play for 3rd place money but is now guaranteed prize money.
Pool 2 - This Pool is still up for grabs going into tonight's game.  Here is what (I believe) is the scenario going into the game.
1st Place - Mustangs  2nd Place - Money Graham if Pittsburgh wins or if Cleveland wins by 1 or 2 or if Cleveland wins by 7 or more.  These two would tie on overall points if Cleveland wins by 2 or 7 but the tiebreaker would go to Mustangs as they have the extra Bang On (same points and wins so goes to 3rd tiebreaker).
1st Place - Money Graham  2nd Place - Mustangs if Cleveland wins between 4-6
1st Place - Money Graham  2nd Place - Bronconation Omaha if Cleveland wins by 3 (Bronconation and Mustangs would tie and have the same amount of points but Bronconation would have one extra win)
Head 2 Head
The Match Up is set. (121) Donny M will face off against (15) #TitanUp in the finals after semi-final victories over (172) Wentz It Rains It Pours and (187) Disco Stu who will square off for 3rd and 4th place prize money next week.
Good luck to everyone involved and also to those striving for the Top 20 overall and the Top 100 overall for the playoff spots.
Prize Payouts
Just a reminder for those that DO NOT qualify for the playoff pool AND won money.  I will be paying you out at the end of the regular season so look for my email on Monday (next week).  If you qualify for the Playoff Pool then all money will be paid after the Super Bowl.

Sweet Sassy McCaffrey needs Miami to win by 7, 8 or 9 in order to advance or else Disco Stu is moving on but you never know. Good luck.

Week # 10 - Weekly Scenario17-Nov-21 01:56:07 PM
Two participants predicted the Det/Pit tie so they have walked away from the pack for the weekly prizes. trainwreck actually only predicted the 1 TIE to pluck the win away from What A Thielen unless there's a TIE in tonight's game then What A Thielen would have predicted two ties in one week for the win.
Week # 9 - Weekly Scenario08-Nov-21 10:03:16 AM
First of all CONGRATULATIONS goes out to Chris Cameron who defeated Jason Ghag in the H2H Championship. Chris and Jason had the same amount correct but Chris won based on bettering Jason on 5 of the 6 games they scored differently which was the main contributor to his success.
I hope the 467 eliminated poolsters enjoyed the Second Chance Survivor Pool.....LOL. Great news for those still remaining though.
Top prize will go out to QB4DP if Chicago wins or Pittsburgh wins between 1-6 or by 10 or more but if Pittsburgh wins between 7-9 then Bally B would be your winner. Best of luck to those that have a shot.

Week # 1 - Weekly Scenario13-Sep-21 10:56:47 AM
Two person race but it's very lopsided since they both chose the same team.
If Vegas wins by 6 or 7 then cricket wins the weekly.  Anything else and SueHawks is the winner.
SueHawks is guaranteed at least 2nd place but if Baltimore wins by 10 then cricket could fall as low as 5th place but any other total and they'd at least be in the Top 4 and win a prize.  Best of luck to both of you.
SURVIVOR PICK !!!09-Sep-20 11:50:25 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!!!!!

Welcome to the 26th Annual Gridiron Football Pool!!!!!!01-Jun-21 09:38:05 AM
Is it that time of the year already??? I hope you and your family are all safe. This COVID-19 has really taken its toll on the world but it appears the NFL will go on as planned. Welcome back to the Gridiron Football Pool website. The entry fee this season remains at $80CDN ($62US). All returnees are guaranteed their spot for the upcoming season as long as their entry fee has been paid by September 2nd. On September 3rd the remaining spots will be available on a first come first paid basis and will close on September 9th.

I'm looking forward to another great year and I hope you have fun.
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.
