Haha, Coach sure does like to talk trash.
Don't give up.  Don't ever give up.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.

Bring it little lady...I have a plan this time!  :devil:

Imagine how much trash I'd talk if I would have actually been near the top last year.

I'll play...but will I remember to make picks every week? That is the question. I hope I will.

As an aside, do NGS bucks actually mean anything at all? Like, is there any reason why it's beneficial to have NGS bucks other than "oh cool I have ten million NGS bucks"?

I will have the picklist up every Tuesday morning MM. Maybe you can put that somewhere as a reminder.

NGS bucks have now been changed to credits. They changed the name right after I made this thread. Thanks Fog! chic1

But it means the same thing. You can use them in the shop to buy things (which the items vary from time to time) One of the most popular items is "change someone's display name". 

Welcome aboard...it's a challenging game that I know you'll enjoy.

I did set a reminder so hopefully that will help. I've done against the spread pickem before and was never very good, but it was a lot of fun!

And wow, I never even noticed the shop area before! haha

Any record over .500 is  good against the spread. Anything over .600, you should be betting real money!

You got that right, but it would be better than Zazz running the show.
Although, Zazz could get us some autographs. Pete can only scrounge up some sand and poker chips.

Welcome to the 2nd annual NFL pick'em vs. the spread challenge!!!

For those that played last year, you know this the toughest pick'em game on the planet!!!
The object is to have more correct picks than anyone else (obviously), while picking against the spread that Vegas sets. (I will be using "scoresandodds.com") There will be no even spreads, every game will be set with half points to avoid any picks ending in a tie (push). For example, if Vegas sets the line at -3, I will add a half point to that, and it will be -3.5

There will be BIG NGS bucks to be won every week all the way through, including the Super Bowl.

Here are the rules...

Copy and paste the pick list I provide (on this thread) and enter your pick next to that game. If you want to change a pick, you may change any pick on any game that has not started yet, but, make the change in a separate post.
DO NOT MODIFY OR EDIT YOUR PICKS AFTER THE THURSDAY GAME HAS KICKED OFF. THIS PREVENTS ANY POSSIBLE WAY OF CHEATING
.

For the playoffs, over/unders and prop picks will be added to make the playoffs more challenging.

There will also be a tiebreaker every week, to help avoid as few ties as possible.
For the tiebreaker you will asked to pick the total points for the Monday night game. Whoever is closest to that total, will win that week. During playoff weeks, the last game to kickoff, will be the tiebreaker game. If it is still tied after that, the NGS bucks will be split accordingly.

One of the new elements to this challenge will be the "Lock of the week".
Every week you will be asked to pick 1 game as your best bet to win (cover).
This is just an NGS bucks bonus prize, and doesn't give you an extra win or loss.


The NGS bucks prize payouts will be:

Regular season (weekly): 1st place: $10,000
                                      2nd place: $5,000
                                      3rd place: $1,000
                                      Lock of the week: $2,500

Regular season (overall): 1st place: $100,000
                                      2nd place: $50,000
                                      3rd place: $25,000

Playoffs (weekly) 1st place: $10,000
                          2nd place: $5,000
                          3rd place: $1,000
                          Lock of the week: $2,500

Playoffs (overall) 1st place: $50,000
                         2nd place: $25,000
                         3rd place: $10,000

Our defending regular season champion from last season is... FOREPLUS!

Our defending playoff champion from last season is... BC!

Let's get this party started!!!  ber
