I’ve finally logged on to the new forum; I didn’t expect this.
Anyway, I guess the sixth Virtual Grey Cup Challenge will appear on this forum this season. Those of you who were on the Fan Huddle last season will remember it, I’m sure. For the others, here’s the jist of it.
Each week, everyone makes picks as to which team they think will win each game. Picks must be posted before kickoff time to be accepted for any game.
At the end of each week, I’ll post the standings, based on who has made the most correct picks over the course of the season.
At the end of the season, the top eight participants qualify for the playoffs. The new playoff format is more complex than it was last year, so I’ll explain it in a later post. As of right now, all you need to know is that you want to finish in the top 8.
The winner of the Virtual Grey Cup Challenge will receive the undying admiration of all of his/her peers. All participants will receive the warm fuzzy feeling they get from taking part in such a contest.
It may sound a bit lame right now, but last year 95 people took part. I hope we can get the same kind of response this year.
