Weekly Pool Rules:

  1. All picks should be submitted by Noon (Pacific Time) on Friday when the first game is on Saturday or Sunday; or Noon on Wednesday, when the first game is on Thursday.
  2. The pre-game, filled in, spreadsheets will be posted the evening that the picks are due (or as soon as I return from occasional business trips). Any entries not received at this time will result in a weekly total of 0 points.
  3. You must assign confidence points (1-16) for each game on the schedule.  Each number may only be used once.
  4. You must pick the winner of each game by selecting the radio button next to the team.
  5. If that team wins, the confidence points will be added to your weekly total.
  6. Enter the total points scored in the Monday Night game (this is only used for a tie breaker, see below).
  7. Tie Break: 1) Total Monday Night Points 2) Correctly pick Monday Night 3) Split the money.
  8. Some rules of this pool may be subjective, therefore, any subjectivity or other interpretation of these rules will be determined at the discretion of Robert Beanland, who's decision will be final.
  9. Rules subject to change without notice.

Weekly Pool Payout:

  1. Weekly payout is $5 per person, for the 17 weeks in the season.  For example, if we have 35 people in the pool, the weekly payout is $175.
  2. Overall Winner Prize is $15 per person less the $50 Corman Award (see next bullet). For example, if we have 35 people in the pool, the overall payout is $475 ((35*$15)-$50).
  3. The 'Tedd Corman: I'm Lucky to be Alive' (TCA) award ($50) will be awarded at the end of the season to the person with the lowest single week total (with filled out picks). In the event of a tie for this award, the earliest of the weeks will win.
  4. All payouts will be made after the end of the regular season.

Weekly Pool Form Layout:

  1. Visiting team for each game is listed first, Home team is listed second.
  2. Use numbers from 1 through 16 (only once) -- 136 Points possible each week!
  3. As of now, your User Name, Password, and the validity of your picks will not be verified when you hit the submit button.  They will be verified when I process the picks.   (So get 'em right!)

Survivor Pool Rules:

  1. The same deadlines and posting rules from the Weekly Pool apply.
  2. Each week that your entry survives, you must pick one team to win their game.

  4. If your team loses, you're entry is out of the Survivor Pool (No Re-buys).
  5. If you are the last survivor, you win the entire Survivor Pool pot.
  6. If all survivors lose in the same week, they will split the Survivor Pool pot.
  7. As of now, your User Name, Password, and the validity of your picks will not be verified when you hit the submit button. They will be verified when I process the picks. (So get 'em right!)
