NFL Road to Superbowl LIV and NtFL Games

Post by Carlos J »

Continuation from last years thread here: https://talkforum.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f ... &start=750

New season punts off early morning on Friday 6 September with the mighty Packers at local rivals Bears. #GoPackGo Our games start on Sunday 8 September at 6pm as usual.

All past players will be PMd. New players always welcome and great spreadsheets and chatter are guaranteed. 8)

As per, never follow pre-season, so mon the Packers.

Shabba and I are both going Wemberley, and I will make it, Zippy and I are going to Spuds new stadium so #fakeforummeet possibilities, my first NFL games. :) Siad the same last season, but hey

As per, not mocking Harper, she will get us going:

Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's Maybelline.

Welcome to NtFL XIII:

Rules and stuff from RM (though amended for details):

This game will use the first 8 weeks of the NFL season, finishing in November. NtFL XIV will start in week 9 for 8 weeks. NtFL XV will be a post-season all in up to and including the Super Bowl.

The first 6 weeks will be a straightforward league. The top 4 in the final table will make the Play-Offs (1st v 4th, 2nd v 3rd), to be played in week 7. Finally in week 8, the winners will compete for the NtFL Super Bowl XIII crown.

Each week, I'll post 10 matches, taken from the Sunday, Monday and occasionally Tuesday fixtures. You will predict the outcome of each match. Your entry for a match needs to look like this, your bit in red:

New England Patriots v Pittsburgh Steelers: Patriots by 20

Or:

Patriots by 20

So you predict the winning team and the margin of victory. If you get the winning team wrong, you get zero. If you get the winning team correct, you score points relating to how close you were to the margin of victory. If you're absolutely spot on, you get maximum points = 50. For every point you stray, you lose a point from 50. So if you are 8 points out, you score 42. If you are 20 points out, you score 30. If a match is tied after overtime, everyone gets zero. Do not predict a tie.

There are 500 points available each week (10x50) and 3,000 points are available across the 6 weeks of the league. People level on points in the league table will be separated by total number of spot ons, then winners predicted correctly, then best weekly score. If that is level, fuck it, a three way play-off.

You will post your predictions in this thread or by PM. There may be PM reminders from me but I will post reminders in this thread. I will specify the deadline each week: it will always be SUNDAY, and normally 6pm.

Not bothering with a stream, listening to http://www.wtmj.com/ Wisconsin radio, I think old Bas' favourite for some of the presenters.
