As you know, our esteemed fellow poster BigDave runs every year the very popular Virtual Grey Cup Challenge, where we have to chose our picks for all the weekly matchups.
Some of us do good, and some of us do bad. But the so-called "experts" out there never come close with their predictions to that of the VGCC winner.
I always wanted to check if total non-experts could outperform most human beings following football, including the "experts".
So, with that in mind, I created the "Virtual Grey Cup Challenge Insight", a weekly post where you will get the picks of four entities that have absolutely no chance of knowing who should win:
- Sancho the dog (who picks the winners with his nose after sniffing their names on a sheet of paper)
- A coin toss (where the visiting team is tail and the receiving team is head)
- The gambling game of Loto-Quebec (based on who needs to substract points from its weekly total to be at par with its opponent)
- And - get this - a game played by the computer with the brand new CFL roster made by MartyMix on Madden 2006.
If any of these four outdo you, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED !
To add to the fun, I even added Chris Shultz to the VGCC Insight, so we can see if the Big Man is outscored by my great panel.
Below is what it looks like.
So far, I have yet to receive the Madden picks from MartyMix, and I haven't found the "Shultz vs. The World" section on TSN (will he do it again this year?) As for Loto-Quebec, it has only posted odds for games played until Friday. I'll adapt the board as soon as I have the other infos.
In the meantime, feel free to add your two cents and to use in the real game the illustrious predictions you have seen here.:P :thup:
