Playoff contest

Playoffs are here...  this was the idea I had for them.  Hawk, if you like the idea, please sticky this topic.

Here’s how it works:

1 point for choosing the team that wins by the spread I will go by this website: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/odds.

I will post what it says on Friday morning, and we will go by that spread. If it changes after that, it doesn't matter.

1 point for choosing the team that wins

1 point for being within 5 either way of the total points scored by both teams (added together). Another words, if the Cowboys win 27-17 this weekend, the total points would be 44. If you choose between 39 and 49 total points, you will get a point for that.

There will be a possibility of 12 points up for grabs on Wildcard weekend, 12 points for the Division finals, and 6 points for the Conference finals, giving a total of 30 points up for grabs.

There are a few ways to get bonus points as well:

1. If you get exact score on any of the total points picked, that is worth 2 points, if you get exact points of each team, that is worth 3 points. (So if you actually picked 44 in the above example, that is worth 2 points. If you choose 27-17, Cowboys, in the above example, that is worth 3 points.)

2. With choosing against the spread, if you decide to choose a tie vs the spread, and you are right, this is worth 3 points. (As long as I've been doing this, it hasn't happened).

Lastly, the Superbowl… Since total points on Superbowl weekend need to be used as a tiebreaker, I came up with different ways to get point to make it more interesting: Here is what you need to choose for Superbowl weekend:

1. 1 pt for choosing the team that wins, of course.

2. 1 pt for choosing the team that wins vs the spread. (And as with the rest of the contest, if you choose a tie, and are correct, this is worth 3 points.)

3. 1 pt for choosing the 1st team to score. 2 for choosing the correct player - choosing the QB doesn’t count unless he runs it in for a TD. (You can only choose one or the other. If you choose Austin, and Dallas scores first, but it isn’t Austin who scores, you do not get 1 point.)

4. 1 pt for choosing the team that scores last. 2 for choosing the correct player - choosing the QB doesn’t count unless he runs it in for a TD. (You can only choose one or the other. If you choose Austin, and Dallas scores first, but it isn’t Austin who scores, you do not get 1 point.)

5. 1 pt for choosing the 1st scoring play: fieldgoal or touchdown. (if you decide to choose safety and are correct, that is worth 3 points).

6. 1 pt for choosing the highest scoring quarter. (2 pts for choosing the exact amount of points in that quarter - you can choose both)

7. 1 pt for choosing the team that gets the longest fieldgoal. (2 pts for how long in yards - you can choose both).

The one with the highest points after the Superbowl wins bragging rights on this message board.

Remember, it will be your last chance to make picks this football season! If you are as hooked as me, that is reason enough. Hope you join in the fun!
Hawk

Well its pretty involved, and looks like a lot of work on your part MAX....I hope everybody gives it a shot.

MBC63 is going to be pissed if somebody scores some big numbers----like me lmao

Why would I be pissed it is just a game ..... then again there you go thinking out of that bird brain of yours..... LOL  cya  geek  geek
quitesanemax

Yeah, its a bit of a pain.  But I do it just about every year on the Pats board....   I'm used to it by now.   With no fantasy football or pickems to worry about, hopefully I have enough time to keep up with it!

The problem I find is its tough to keep up with once my Pats are eliminated...  but I'll find a way... ah, if they get eliminated.   ;

Max
Nightrider

I'm going to take a while to figure this out Max. Hell we couldn't get the other game right half the time, and now you go and get serious on us lol.

Lets see who do I know that went to M.I.T.
mbc63

It is relativly simple. Pic a winner and then look at the spread. Then pick a total score. If you do not like the spread either go with your team or the other.

I may set this one out due in part of my Grand-Father of being a proffesional bookie and odds maker. He taught me well how to pic-em and play the odds as well as how to play poker.

Good Day
BluenSilver4evr

Okay I love a challenge, come on MBC you lucked out and won by 1 point in the other game.

The real deal was picking the right people at the right time, we all pretty much used the same guys. Also its still the same season, and I think Max will add all the scores together to get the winner. I hope its not 2 different games, just a continuation of the first game. That means mbc you could end up last!
Nightrider

Huh Huh, I'd like to point out that Lonestar and I tied in last man standing, and last time I checked we were still in this game.

If mbc wants to bow out then I'll be glad to take both titles this year, no problemo lmao

Yes you are correct in the 1st game play. Lady Luck was not with Cincinnati. I think it was a ball off of a helmet that was ran back for a score.

Yet I will put my picks up in a little while .... LOL.

Good Day.

Max,

 I'm having some trouble as well. I see that I went to edit a mistake and it got posted twice.

I was not sure on a few things. Thus me posting it up to get your feed back.

Good Day
Hawk

Cinn...............20-14

Dallas..............24-17

Ravens.............21-17

Ariz..................31-17
quitesanemax

Hawk will be the first to venture forth...

Only thing is this doesn't tell me what you are predicting vs the spread, unless you are saying each will win and cover the spread.  Also, if you give me an exact score, like 27-10, or something like that, then you have a chance at getting the 3 points, if you get it correct.   You don't have to, but you might as well.

Max

Edited:  Just took out the quote so I don't get confused later on.
quitesanemax

NYJ @ Cincy   Cincy 17-10
Philly @ Dallas,  Dallas 27-20
Balt @ NE, Balt 18-17
GB  @ Arizona,  GB 33-27
Hawk

Okay I see you don't want an over all score. I'm getting it.

Now the Pats are favored, but I picked the Ravens because I don't think the Pats cover the spread. Isn't that the right thing to do?

Now i9f I follow what you are saying, I have to pick the ravens if I don't think the Pats will cover. But I went ahaead and picked them to win outright, even though they are the under-dog.
LoneStar

Cincy         17-14

Dallas         27-17

NE              21-17....How does this work since 21-17 may not cover the spread. So do I say Ravens win then?

Ariz            27-24...same problem here, and the spread right now is 2 1/2 on the Cinncy game that may change...I'm confused?
quitesanemax

As long as you put the scores out there the way you did, that is fine.  I will put the official spreads out there tomorrow morning.   But if you have the exact scores out there, then there is no need for you to do anything else... unless you want to change your pick, of course.  I will take the last picks you post before the game starts.

Max
Hawk

Max I understand what Lonestar is saying.

He picked NE to win 21-17 but with a 6 point spread that would make it Ravens 23-21 (in the eyes of a bookie). I had the same problem so I just picked the Ravens to win.
quitesanemax

I don't have much experience with bookies.   Lol.

I'm looking for what you believe the actual score will be.    So if you believe the Patriots will win 21-17, that is what I am looking for, Lonestar.  If the Patriots win 24-17,  you would get a point for picking the correct team to win, and a point for getting within 5 points of the score, but you wouldn't get a point for picking the correct team vs the spread.

I don't like my choices here... its either 'not see my picks above Hawks'... or  'they not showing up again'.    So since neither of those statements are true, I'm not sure how to answer your question.   ; )

No worries, MBC, I see your picks!   Lol.

Spreads for Wildcard weekend

Saturday

NY Jets @ Cincy, Cincy favored by 2 1/2
Philly @ Dallas, Dallas favored by 4

Sunday
Baltimore @ NE, NE by 3
GB@Arizona, pick

So with the GB/Arizona game, you pick the winner, you get 2 points.

Here's a link to my source, but keep in mind that it is up to date spreads, and could change at any time.  We will still go by the spreads I listed above.

 They got deleted by accident and I did not write them down.
I had a touch of the flu or a virus over the week-end and by the time I thought about it the games Sunday had already started.

I feel a little better today though .... that is after I took an unexpected 5hr ap. I simply laid down to wait on coffee being made and the next thing I know it is 1:45 or so .... lol.

With a little ice and chocolate I drank what was left to so not to piss the wife off. She made a full pot just because I asked for some.

That brings me to an proverb.. Confucius once said  " He who stand on toilet high on pot "

Good Day Now
quitesanemax

Wow, often when I post here, it brings me to the login screen, and forces me to log in, even though I logged in a few minutes ago... and I lose everything.  That is frustrating!  Now I have to rewrite the post.

Wish I had taken down your picks before the weekend started, MBC.  I did that as much as possible with the other contest.  The main reason why I didn't this week was because I hadn't created the spreadsheet yet, so I had no place to put them.  I was too busy to make the spreadsheet over the weekend.  Just created it last night.  Sorry about that.  I am willing to give you the 2 points for Dallas (don't remember what score you put down, but I remember that everyone picked Dallas to cover the spread).  Does anyone else remember what MBC picked?  Glad your feeling better anyway, MBC!

Anyway, got the results last night, but I wanted to wait to see if I could get MBC's picks, so I didn't post it.  The spreadsheet is at home, so I will try and remember to post the results tonight.   Nightrider had a great week... and had 12 points, the closest to him had 8.   So we are going to have to knock out Nightrider and tie him up in the closet so he can't make his pics to give us a chance to catch up .  No big deal, he is only a Cowboys fan.  No one will notice he is missing!    ; )

By the way, congrats to your Cowboys... and good luck going forward.  Guess we won't be seeing that Pats/Cowboys matchup this year!   Still trying to come to terms with the loss.  : (

Take it easy!

I will have to do some digging. I believ I sent them to a buddy in Florida. If not no biggy. I think like most  I did not expect the Bengals and Pats to get beat like they did.

In N.E. defense ... I think Teddy made a difference and was not adequately replaced. JMHO Tho.

As for the screen going away. When I have been away for awhile I just hit the refresh icon and it seems to work on not having to sign in again,yet it will take out a post if you have left it without sending it.

I did pick the Cowboys,Cards ( just do not care at all for the pac ),Bengals,and Pats. I do not remeber the scores tho. I will check with the friend in Florida. He is playing a similar contest on the web as well.

I do not think I did so well. I was in the process of changing some things and had to leave. while I was gone the 3yr old grand daughter got on the computer to play Dora .... LoL. At 3 she is a handful, like last weekend she made a 33 minute Trans Atlantic call to some small town in Italy. The operator cut her off and then called the house about an hour afterwards. She now has a friend in Italy named Sophia ( she is 19 and in school to be a Red Cross Nurse ). The phone company gave us a break and only charged us 3 1/2 cents a minuet. She had gotten up before Grand Ma and was on the phone and computer playing Dora. Funny...playing a Spanish game while talking to an Italian ...... LOL

I have no problem accepting these pics.  If your cheating MBC, man you could have done a much better job than that!  You only get 4 points out of that!   Lol.    I will put them in the spreadsheet tonight.

Wow, a call to Italy...  Guess that is something you have to worry about these days when kids play on the web... they can meet someone half way cross the globe!   But your saying this kid is just 3 years old!   And she is even talking on the phone, let alone for 33 minutes in a different language!   This kid must be a genius!

Why cheat and why lie. for when you lie you have to keep up with the ones that follow afterwards ..... LOL.

I am surprised that Hawk did not remember them. We had gone over them in a conversaation. He actually said the Ravens would beat the Pats.

I never said he did not use steroids. I stated he did not wish to get more involved than what he was and that he used them to play the game. I think he stated that in his interview.

She was trying to play Dora on the computer and was talking on the phone. She just sometimes pushes buttons. Sophia spoke English so it must have been an entertaining conversation.

Hawk,

Must be tha bird brain of yours and watch them words. I think I stated he used Andros till it became a banned substance in the end. I do believe as well that he stated he wanted immunity and was working on that when he made his statement for they had not reached an agreement at the time he was questioned.

In the begining I do believe he stated he was under Dr's care for his injuries. I do believe he stated that he kept using them to aid his recovery and to play the game. When all that he was taken became a banned substance ..... he then retired .

UNLIKE ..... Ben Johnson,Barry Bonds and a few others.

Results after Divisional round

Hey guys, sorry about the loss.  That was a tough one.  I really thought Dallas was going to win that one... in fact, I was expecting them to make the Superbowl.   Well, think of it as small steps.  At least they got that evasive playoff win that they have been looking for.   Hopefully next year they get further...

Anyway, not much has changed here.  Nightrider leads still, but Blue&Silver is close behind.  The rest of us are still in it.  Remember that a lot of points are up for grabs in the Superbowl .  Hope everyone continues to make their picks.  Here are the results:

Nightrider:  Started with  12:  To win:  2, New Orleans, Indy.  Vs spread 2 pts, same two, Within 5 with the New Orleans game for 1 more point.   Total:  17.

BlueSilver:  Started with 9 To win:  2, New Orleans, Indy.  Vs spread 2 pts, same two, Within 5 with the New Orleans game for 1 more point.  Total:  14  

Max:  Started with 5:   To win:  2 pts, Indy & NY Jets.  Vs spread 2 pts, same two.   Total:  9

I'm interested to see who's coming out early this year, Like Stanfords runner-up for the Heisman. ASU has a guy named Jeffcoat, and I'm sure interested in him.

I think the Saints will win it all this year. If Bree's gets any blocking from his O-Line this week, they will kill Minn. Dallas had recievers open all day long against Minn, But Romo never had any time to throw the ball.

Well, been a busy week, and I didn't think there was any real hurry.  So this got a low priority.  But here are the results after the Conference Finals.  This is really between Nightrider and BluenSilver (who managed to tie it up last week).   Most of the rest of us have an outside chance if we do real good, and the two leaders do really bad, but realistically, it is probably going to be one of them two...

Nightrider:  Started with  17:  To win:  1 pt, Indy.  Vs spread 1pt, Minn,  Total:  19.

BlueSilver:  Started with 14 :  To win:  2 pts, Indy, New Orleans, Vs spread 1 pt, Indy, Within 5 with  both games for 2 more point.  Total:  19  

Max:  Started with 9:   To win:  1 pt, Indy.  Vs spread 2 pts, Indy, Minn.  Within 5 with the New Orleans game for 1 more point Total:  13

Lonestar:  Started with 9:   To win:  2 pts, Indy, New Orleans.  Vs spread 1 pt, Indy.   Total:  12

Just as a reminder... I have copied what we are supposed to be picking for the Superbowl:

Lastly, the Superbowl… Since total points on Superbowl weekend need to be used as a tiebreaker, I came up with different ways to get point to make it more interesting: Here is what you need to choose for Superbowl weekend:

1. 1 pt for choosing the team that wins, of course.

2. 1 pt for choosing the team that wins vs the spread. (And as with the rest of the contest, if you choose a tie, and are correct, this is worth 3 points.)

3. 1 pt for choosing the 1st team to score. 2 for choosing the correct player - choosing the QB doesn’t count unless he runs it in for a TD. (You can only choose one or the other. If you choose Austin, and Dallas scores first, but it isn’t Austin who scores, you do not get 1 point.)

4. 1 pt for choosing the team that scores last. 2 for choosing the correct player - choosing the QB doesn’t count unless he runs it in for a TD. (You can only choose one or the other. If you choose Austin, and Dallas scores first, but it isn’t Austin who scores, you do not get 1 point.)

5. 1 pt for choosing the 1st scoring play: fieldgoal or touchdown. (if you decide to choose safety and are correct, that is worth 3 points).

6. 1 pt for choosing the highest scoring quarter. (2 pts for choosing the exact amount of points in that quarter - you can choose both)

7. 1 pt for choosing the team that gets the longest fieldgoal. (2 pts for how long in yards - you can choose both).

8.  Please give total points as well.  This will not get you any points, and will only be used as a tiebreaker if we have a tie at the end.

Okay Max...I forgot about all of that and I bet everybody else did to. I'll try and get the word out to the others. I'll do this in the morning.
Hawk

Well Max, its just about all over except the crying lol.
I can't find myself the least bit excited about the SB game, and will probably not watch it at all.

If one of the QBs gets hurt early then this game will just be a joke.

First of all, spreads...

New Orleans @ Indy, Indy by 5

Okay, I'm used to doing this every year with my friends, so I never even really think about it.   You all are not quite doing it right, but rather than have everyone change their picks, we will just make a few minor changes to the rules so people don't have to make changes... after all, who has time these days!

3 and 4 were supposed to be one or the other.  Either you pick the team that scores first (last), or you pick the player that scores first (last).  Since everyone put both, we'll make it so that each gets you 1 point.  So if you picked New Orleans to score first, and you picked Bush to score first, to get 2 points both of those have to happen.  If New Orleans scores first, but not Bush, you still get 1 point.


5. By 1st scoring play, I meant TD, fieldgoal, or safety, and if you pick safety and are correct that is worth 3 points.   All those who picked pass, I will take that as them picking a TD.

Hawk and Bluensilver, you worded it such that your saying the first TD to be scored will be a pass.  If you think the first points scored will be something other than a TD, then you should probably change it to read such.  Otherwise I will take it as you meaning the first points scored will be a TD.

Lonestar, I highly doubt Reggie Wayne is going to score the last points for the Saints... you might want to change that.  Lol.

Good luck all!!

Thanks Max: Will the real Reggie please stand up? lol
quitesanemax

From what I hear, the real Reggie limped off the practice field yesterday...  knee injury.   They were saying he is still probable, but I don't know.  If it were an ankle, that is one thing, but they are saying the knee... which is definitely a red flag to me...  especially since Freeney once again didn't practice yesterday.  

Max
Hawk

Yeah I read that also....but....they said its the same injury he's played with all year.

I think it might be the same as, Brady's forever shoulder injury...haha

Thanks Max, things have been slow around here for awhile. Hope they pick up again soon.

I was hoping you'd give us some insight on the Hockey Team---USA at the Olympics forum. I have heard its a 2 team race only in the Womens Hocky event--USA and Canada.

I had Sweden at the last Olympics, now I can't remember how they did?
quitesanemax

To tell you the truth, I haven't been keeping track of hockey... been just so busy lately.  So I really don't know much about the players on the teams, except what I've heard them say on TV.  I mean, I know some of the NHL players, but I don't know who is on what team.

I enjoy watching the women's hockey, cause its a lot more civilized.  I get to watch hockey, rather than a bunch of people trying to kill each other for the most of the game.  And don't get me wrong, NHL does have some good hockey, but I don't have to sit thru the bullcrap when I am watching the women.   And some of those women have talent.  But I can't say I know much about them.  I turn it on and watch them, but I don't keep track of who is good.  You just told me something I hadn't known... that Canada and US were the only two good teams.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful...

Max
