2016-2017 Season


Scoring:

5 points per game for picking the winner
5 extra points (10 total) per game for picking the exact score

The game allows entrants to predict the results of pro football games, much like an office pool. The winner of the contest for each week of the pro football regular season schedule is determined by which ever entrant has the most points at the end of all games for the given week. If the contest should end in a tie based on points alone, the tie breaker will be determined by which entrant has the lowest point differential. The point differential takes the absolute value of the difference between the actual score and your predicted score for each game, and adds them all together.



Rules:

1. You have until kick off of each game to make your picks, once a game starts you will not be able to change your pick.
2. To play you must be a registered member of the Bigbruin.com forum.
3. One winner will be chosen (per week) based on the final score of the contest.
4. Winners will be notified via the forum private message system, and they have two weeks to claim their prize and provide a shipping address.
5. Prizes not claimed within two weeks will be forfeit.
6. This contest is open to participants in the USA and Canada only, and shipping is covered by Bigbruin.com.
7. Rules subject to change.



Tips:

1. Your picks aren't set in stone until game time. You can edit your predictions for any particular game as often as you want right up to kick off.
2. Once games have started, you can see your predictions and how they compare to actual results by clicking your name as listed on the main page of the game.
3. The main page of the game shows cumulative season stats, which have no bearing on winning the prize for any given week. Just ignore them! To see weekly scores - click here - and scroll to the current week.
4. All games for the entire 2016-2017 season are entered into a database for the game. The way it will work is that the application will feed out games one week before they are to be played. So, for example, on any Sunday you can already start picking the games for the following Sunday. But, if you do that you have to remember to come back to pick the following Monday game, since that won't be fed out until game time on Monday.
