Week 2 of the BGO NFL Pickem Contest saw more highly competitive results, with some great performances, and with a few players coming down to Earth.

Special kudos to MisterPinstripe who led no less than 10 players going 11-5 this week, including Master Chief, tomwvr, Kelly, Slacky, Yusuf06, EatSleepRedskin, Neophyte, Burl, and Docsandy.

For the year and overall contest leaders, so far it's Jimbo in first place , EatSleepRedskin in second, Kelly in third position, all boasting a 24-8 record.

Remember our 2008 Redskins. In other words, early success is not necessarily a predictor of ultimate results :)

2 games off the lead, me likey. Also, what is the "points" column? Is that how many points off we've been in the tie-breaker column? If so, -1 is phenomenal, if I do say so myself! :D

Yes - it's related to the tie-breaker predictions you've made. Here's the official answer from the FAQ section:

Q: I don't understand the "Recap" report - what is the deal with the Season Points & Season Record and why does it sort by Points?

A: This question has been asked many times. Season points represent the aggregate points selected by each player for tie-breaker games less the aggregate points scored in tie-breaker games (for those using "combined score" for tie-breakers) otherwise it represents the aggregate combined margin for all tie-breaker games. Let's see an example:

Joe plays weeks 1,2 & 3. He picks 44 for week 1, 27 for week 2 and 35 for week 3. His aggregate for all tie breaker games picked would be 44+27+35 = 106. Let's say that week 1's tie breaker score was 21-10 = 31, week 2 = 14-31=44, week 3 = 9-6 = 15 .... so 31+44+15 = 90. 106 (Joe's aggregate) less 90 (points scored) = 16. If Joe's aggregate was 80, his season points would be -10 (or 10 pts away from perfect). This point factor is only used to determine ranking when win-loss-tie record is the same for 2 or more players.

Note: At the beginning of a week, before the games have been played, but after picks have been made, the aggregate of tie-breaker games picked will reflect a slightly higher (by the amount of the current weeks tie breaker points) number than when there is a score to offset.

No problem - I'm still learning this software (which btw, is beyond cool if you ask me). The software developer gives great customer service, so if questions come up that aren't in the standard FAQ's section, let them fly and I'll pass on to him.
