    B 2017 BGO NFL Pickem: Final Contest Results



    The Super Bowl is over. And we have a winner in our 2017 BGO NFL Pickem Contest!

    All HAIL Kel Varnsen, our 2017 Champion!

    Incredibly, we had a 3 way tie at the top with Kel Varnsen, JohnssBass, and DixieFlatline each notching an incredible 176 wins on the season - a 66% pick accuracy rate. After all those games, it came down to tie-breaker points to decide our top 3 spots. Congrats to our top 4 finishers as follows:

    2017 Champion: Kel Varnsen
    Runner Up: JohnssBass
    3rd Place: DixieFlatline
    4th Place: Jimbo

    Rounding out our top 10 finishers for 2017:
    5th Place: redskins26
    6th Place: MisterPinstripe
    7th Place: Ax
    8th Place: RobinTom
    9th Place: Boone
    10th Place: DieselPwr44

    Our Champion wins a customized official NFL Jersey (or an equivalent prize if that doesn't strike your fancy Kel) and also gets to sport the coveted 'BGO Prophet' pickem champion avatar for the next year.


    Our 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place finishers will receive some nice prizes of our BGO staff's choosing. Congrats to our 4 Prize Winners! Please PM Boone with your names and home addresses and we'll get those prizes out asap.

    To the rest of our contest players, thanks for playing this year. Next year, may you add your name to the Hall of Pickem Fame here at BGO!

    I want them tested for Performance Enhancing Picks stat. PEP’s is a serious infraction and goes against “the spirit of legal picking”.

    Congrats Kel and crew!

    I knew I only had one chance and that was to pick to stupid eagles. I didn't think they would win. Heck, when Pederson went ultra conservative with 2 minutes left, I still thought the Pats might win. Then the Hail Mary and I still thought they would somehow tie it and win in OT. I guess there is a silver lining to seeing the eagles win. Also, I can't believe I figured out the points right this time. Last time I had a chance to win, I didn't understand the points and went the wrong way. Ironically, I change my point total 5 minutes before kickoff but I'm glad it didn't hurt.

    Thanks Boone for putting this on. I always enjoy all these contests and I encourage everyone to play all the contests we have as they are all very fun.

    Special kudos to JohnssBass who really was in the driver's seat heading in to the Super Bowl. The title was his with an expected Patriots win, and he really had no choice but to go with the favored team. Tough way to lose it but great job nevertheless!

    Yeah, that was my whole reason for picking the iggles. If I was in 1st place, I would have taken the Pats. Tough spot to be in when the underdog wins.

    Congrats to Kel! It doesn't matter where you're at during the season, just where you finish & Kel finished in 1st.

    ...and as a Redskins fan I'm used to saying this...just wait till next year!
