RealGM NFL Beat the Commish 2016 

Post#1 » by Dirk » Wed Aug 17, 2016 3:19 pm

Hi guys, bwgood77 and I will be running this little competition on RealGM. The Commish is Howard Mass.

It's very simple, just join the group and make your NFL picks against the spread every week and see how you do against fellow forum members as well as experts. It adds an extra interest to the games on Sunday, so we hope people join in and participate to make things fun.

How to Play?
1. If you don't already have one, create an ESPN account.
2. Join group. Pick an entry name that matches your RealGM username.
3. Check your user settings here. Enable Group email and Reminder Email, so you don't miss picks any week.

Rules
[*] Each Tuesday, spreads will be posted on ESPN for the the upcoming week.

[*] Lock-time. All entries will use a rolling lock which allows a player to pick any game that has yet to kick off. Selections submitted after the deadlines are considered invalid, and no points will be received.

[*] Overall tie-breaker - higher number of points scored for Week 17.
- --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - --- - ---
Competition
1. Beat the Commish Champion
The player with the highest number of correct picks throughout the season wins the title.

Each correct winning pick will receive one (1) point. Points are not lost for incorrect picks. Picking every game, every week is essential.

2. Weekly Challenge
Each week, every player will go up against the commish's weekly score. One (1) point will be assigned for a win; half-point (0.5) to a tie; zero (0) for a loss.

This ensures that a bad week or two doesn't prevent players from keeping an interest in the game and seeing if they can beat beat the commissioner, Mr. Howard Mass, in the most number of individual weeks, regardless of their overall correct picks total.-

3. Top group
At the end of the season, we will see who did better between users and mods, by comparing the overall points total from the top three users with the top three mods.

I'll give it a shot, this will be a lot easier than the "NFL Beat the Commish" challenge that Clay Matthews, Mike Neal, Julius Peppers, and James Harrison are playing.

imagine the intensity if you gave away RealGM T shirts or some kind of prize. On another board many years ago, they were giving away a box of ribs from Carsons. We were guessing Bulls games outcomes and closest to the final score wins. The thread participation was epic. Anyway, the point is, a small prize makes a huge difference.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...
