Prediction game 2019-2020

Postby Math » Fri Sep 06, 2019 9:31 am

That's a first draft just to have a bit of a taste of your interest.

Would you guys be interested in participating on a prediction game/contest ? The idea is basic: before each gameday we put our predictions here for the next games (DAL-BOS 2:1, MTL-TOR 0:17, ANA-LA what is ANA ?, etc.). Then points are awarded to you as a function of the actual results. Everybody can join or leave at any time, no need to be participant freak.

No money required, just a bit of your time to give your predictions. On my side, I will just compile all results and predictions in the black box, run the routine and spit out the updated rankings. The reward for the winner: the ultimate respectability on the boards.

Of course, there is the possibility to created all kind of banners to hang on the AAC rafters or elsewhere if there's not sufficient space. We can build monthly winners, regular season winner and also the ultimate winner after the season to come. I have a lot of time to lose, but nothing is more beautiful than the useless.

What do you think ?

I think we did stuff like that before but it petered out.

Yeah, all it takes is going on vacation or forgetting and you're out of the running. It's why I don't do fantasy hockey. Too much work involved.

I used to love drafting my team in fantasy sports. Then after week 2 I was already forgetting about it.

I finally figured out I don't have what it takes to be a fantasy athlete...manager.

If you're compiling the data and doing the work, I'd be in.

It's pretty simple: Dallas will go either 82-0-0 or 0-82-0 this season. There are no other options.

I think they could go 0-0-82.

Yes I will.

I also did that kind of stuff last seasons and I always forgot some gamedays, but as far as the season goes everybody is missing a bit at some point and all even out.

I suggest 2-2 ties for all games, but you probably won't get your banner.
