Stump the Schwabs NFL Pick'Em Edition! Open for Entry!
Guys and Gals, we're gonna try something new this year that will be fun and exciting. We're calling it the.......
Our contest and prizes are sponsored by
Here is how it works...
You will join a Yahoo! NFL Pick'Em league in which you will pick the winners of all NFL games for each week of the NFL regular season. In this league you will be competing against other members, but more importantly, you will be ultimately competing against the SCF NFL Schwabs, the Football Staffers! WVColtsfan, Trains, myself, and all the others will collaborate each week to make our best pick set which we will play under the pseudonym "SCF Football Schwabs." Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to do the following...
1. Go to http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/pickem and click on "Join Group." Enter our Group ID#: 11654 and our password: scf
2. Create a pick set. Your pick set MUST be your SCF user name in order to be eligible to receive any points!
3. Each week of the NFL season, submit your picks for the winners of each NFL game.
4. For each game you pick BETTER than the Schwabs, you'll get a point. For instance, in Week 1, if the Schwabs pick 10 games right but you pick 15 games right, you get 5 points because you got 5 more right than we did. If you TIE with the SCF Schwabs, you will receive no points. You only get points if you do BETTER than us! Make sense?
5. You can join at any point during the year. It will remain open for all who wish to join.
There is only one scoring rule. For each game that you pick BETTER than the SCF Schwabs, you get a point. See example above for what I mean. Your points will accumulate each week. At the end of the regular season, whatever member has gained the most points throughout the year will be our winner! SCF STAFFERS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THIS CONTEST. ONLY REGULAR MEMBERS!
There are two segments to this contest: A Year Long Segment and 4 four-week segments. The year-long segment calculates your points from weeks 1-17. The 4 four-week segments offer prizes to the members who score the most points during weeks 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, and 13-17.
