Weekly Picks Contest

So! Another year, another chance to join in on the Weekly Picks Contest. It is FREE to join, with a cash prize at the end of the season! Because the work in the write up has already been done, I have copied the same message we have used for the last couple years... So whether this is new to you, or a refresher - have a read!!

"Like reading what the prognosticators have to say, and want to get in on the action but just don't have the je ne sais quoi to write them up yourself? Here's your chance...... oh... and there is a cash prize involved.

Every full week of games (so non-tournament weekends), all OTFL players have the opportunity to submit your picks...

You are not obligated to submit your picks every non-tournament week, but the more you contribute, the better your odds are of taking home the $$ prize. Person with the most points accumulated at the end of the season wins.

All picks must be emailed to: Picks@oshawafootball.com

How to play:

- Of all the games being played, you can pick up to 4 teams who you think will win.

- The only stipulation, is that you cannot pick against your own team (in other words, you cannot pick your opponent to win. You CAN pick your team to win though)

- There are no best bets... no spread... straight up wins -vs- losses.

- If you pick a Tie Game you will receive half a point.

Picks Deadline:

- To keep it fair and for us to add all the data into our spreadsheet, all picks must be submitted by 8pm on Saturday. (So picks for the games on June 15th are due on Saturday, June 14th by 8pm).

- in the email, include your name, team name and indicate your picks. Since there are quite a few double headers, we will not accept just saying "the hawks". Instead, we need to know you mean "the hawks will beat the ________".

-An email will be sent out to all that week's players revealing what everyone has picked so ya'll know its legit.

-After each week a running total of points will be available for online viewing.

The Winner:

- This is for regular season games only
- The winner with the highest score will be awarded $150 cash at the banquet. Second place will receive $50.
- In the event of a tie score at the end of the season, the cash prize will be divided equally.

cheers.... "

Let me know if you guys have any questions! :)
Good Luck... I welcome competition.. even though I have this in the bag... *dusts off shoulders*

RE: Weekly Picks Contest

and... to clarify..

this contest begins the SECOND week of games.. giving you the opportunity to see what moving and shaking has happened in the off season, as well as what any new teams are looking like...

it also gives me the time to decide who my home team will be... OPC, or the formerly know as Hounds (aka Sharks)... decisions, decisions.. since they are pretty much equivalent in the standings, its not like picking one or the other has any definite advantage.

BUT -- if anyone has a problem with my picking between those two (and declaring it before things get hot and heavy in the 2nd week), then I will stick with the hounds/sharks as history has had it. speak now, or don't bitch later.

RE: Weekly Picks Contest

I'll take Ron Burgundy's advice and stay classy with this one but just for those who weren't able to witness what happened today, here's a snap shot...
Sharks up 19-8 with just over four minutes to play...Bulldogs driving and get a score to make it 19-14...Sharks hi three and out and punt the ball away...Bulldogs take over at their 10 yard line with five plays remaining....yadda yadda yadda...final score 20-19 for the Bulldogs!!!
Great game...but don't ever guarantee a win against us....EVER!!..hope everyone backed the money line on us....
