BBS Sports League NFL Pick'em Game Description/Rules/Policies: --------------------------------------------------------------
Greetings NFL Fans,
Listed below is a very simplistic description of the league and it's rules/policies for this years (2016-17) NFL Pick'em Contest.
The BBS Sports League "NFL Pick'em" contest is a simple game in which
two teams compete, and you guess the winner before the game is played.
At the end of the NFL season, the player with the best record wins.
1) Every week there will be an official game ticket posted to the
group. This "Game Ticket" (which i attempt to post NLT Tuesdays),
is simply an itemized text/message consisting of each weeks
games, taken from it's source, which is NFL.COM.
2) Once a ticket is published to the group, members/players can reply
with their selections. Selections are commonly called "Picks". This
reply to the group is also counted as a submission to the League
3) One submission per player and the ticket must be filled out in it's entirety. This submission can be altered/changed up and until the
submission deadline. Your new ticket must be clearly marked *NEW*,
or *REVISION*, somewhere in the topic or subject of the message.
Make sure it's clearly visible to everyone. Especially the LC.
FILLING OUT THE TICKET:
Currently, the correct method for filling out an official game ticket
is as follows:
ARI vs DAL = [Your Pick Here]
PIT va BAL = [Your Pick Here]
The original game ticket/message comes this way out of the box from
the LC. All you have to do is place your pick/guess next to the
The easiest way to do this (at this time) is to quote the original ticket/message and use your text editor of choice to enter your
The important thing to remember here is to include the two teams and
your selection in the correct numerical order of the official game
ticket. Please do not mix and match or create a hodgepodge of
selections that the LC has to try and sort through as this
type of submission will be rejected.
The player results are usually posted the day after all games are
complete and before the new "OGT" is submitted to the group. It
wouldn't make sense to post new shedules without giving the
results of the previous schedule first.
It is always the LC's job to post the results of your weekly
picks/selections and YOUR responsibility to verify the
accuracy of said ticket. Unfortunately this process is
not automated and mistakes can happen.
Having said that, if you believe an error has been made on
your game tickets final score, you have until Wednesday
(noon) to let the LC know so that confirmation and
proper adjustments/totals can be made and then
resubmitted to the group/league.
The time deadline simply tells the LC that all is well and
that no problem exists with your previously submitted
ticket. A virtual"green light".
