A number of you have anxiously messaged me asking about this year's NFL Pickem contest.
'Are we playing again this year?'
'When will the NFL Pickem Contest open?'
'Please please tell me we're playing again this year?'
So, in the appropriate order.
All you need to do is click on the 'NFL Pickem' link in our navigation bar at the top of the page, and follow the registration instructions. Alternatively, you can let me know via this thread that you're In Like Flint for the 2010 contest. There are no major changes from last year's contest, but we do ask that if you register to play, you play the entire season regardless of how well you are doing. We plan on throwing in some unofficial mystery prizes occasionally for the best record on a given week, just so those getting pummelled on the season standings still have something to play for. Remember that although you can start playing as soon as the Hall of Fame game, Pre-Season games are ONLY for practice. Only Regular Season, Post-Season, and the Super Bowl games count for the overall standings.
Jimbo, our 2009 Overall Winner dares you to challenge his supremacy! At least that's what he told me.
Btw - we will be *settling up with* the 2009 winners in the next 7-10 days. If you recall, our BGO Store has been out of action, and that is soon to be remedied.
Let any questions fly - we're proud to offer this contest, and we think we've got the best NFL contest software you'll find anywhere. Last season went smooth as silk and we expect this year's contest to be just as seamless and user-friendly.
And one final note, I'm working out some minor kinks, but it appears we may also be able to run an NCAA Football contest this season as well. If that's something there is significant interest in, I expect we'll do that as well. Let me know your thoughts on that possibility!
