The Grey Cup rules are just a tad different from the rest of the playoffs.
In order to count, picks must be made by midnight Friday night. No exceptions, no excuses. Any changes must also be in by this time in order to be accepted.
Everyone is encouraged to make picks, but only the top 2 who make picks will have their picks count. That means that if someone qualifies for the Virtual Grey Cup and doesn't get their picks in, the next person on the list will take their spot.
Make your picks the same way you normally would.
You must make a pick in order to qualify. However, if both participants choose the same team, I will change the pick of the second participant. This is so that the game, not the picks, determines the winner. On Saturday, as a reply to this thread, I will post a list of the qualifying participants and their team.
After the Grey Cup game, the participant whose team won is the winner of the Virtual Grey Cup. The other person is ranked #2. The remaining participants are ranked based on the number of correct picks in the Divisional Finals, the number of correct picks in the semi-finals, followed by the regular season standings.
Okay, here we go. In case you hadn't heard, the Grey Cup game is:
