I didn't like how it was being tallied, so I bailed.  I'll toss in some picks for old times sake this week I guess.

you mean with the bonus points for being close on the score?  ya.. i didn't get that part either...  kind of not fair to get an extra win or two that way...  i thought the points were the tie breaker.      maybe we can get a poll up to change it back or something.   the season is still young.  only 4 games in.

Yeah, that was weighing the MNF game too much IMO.  So instead of bitching, I just quit.  Also, I think the Thursday game shouldn't count.  Most, if not all, of the pools I play in don't count it.  It's just too early in the week to get all your picks in.  And yes, I know we made it where you can put in Sundays games later, but that's just more work.  Also still not clear how its being totaled.  Is it purely wins?  is it win %?  I really don't know. *shrug*

But taking the 2 points away for guessing the total points will drop me from second place to... something like 6th!  Nooo!!  :pickit:

I actually would not be opposed to disallowing two points for a correct score on the guess.  It is weird, I agree. 

But hey, I'll take them!

I don't want to cause X a bunch of work or anything, but I am not opposed to removing the points on score as well. I am in favor of keeping thursdays though.

Every format I used it always gave the person bonus points for guessing the MNF game. I thought it was nice wild card.

I just wanted to keep it simple, most points win. I never meant for it to be confusing.

I guess most of us are used to playing for $$$ so extra points for a point total is kind of odd.  Especially when it's a 2 pointer.  Worth 2 games?  


* There's also the "what happens if two people guess the same point total"

As the system stands, if the end of the season comes down to a tie... or close one, the person who is behind could just pick the opposite Monday Night team along with the same point total as the person in the lead.  They would then potentially get a 3 point swing... or lose (which they would have anyway).

That would take 6 points or something away from me though!  And I'd be ok with that...
