Finally, it's time to get this started! :rockin:
Most of you already know the rules, and there have been no changes since last season.
To join in, just start making picks.
Reply to this thread with your picks for the games. You're encouraged to elaborate, but only the predicted winners are taken into account.
Your picks must be clear at a glance. That is, don't hide your prediction in paragraphs of flowery prose. It's not unusual for us to get a hundred people participating, and I don't intend to quit my job.
No conditional picks. Choose one team or the other. If you make a conditional pick, the first team you name will be your pick. So if you say, "Winnipeg if it's raining, Toronto if it's sunny", you've just picked Winnipeg, rain or shine.
Picks must be in by the scheduled kickoff time, no exceptions, period. If the first game is scheduled for 7:30 and the stamp on your post reads 7:31, your pick for that game will not be accepted (although I will still accept your picks for the others.)
To change your picks, post a new message. Do not edit your original post. I probably will not see the change. Changes like all picks must be made prior to the scheduled kickoff time for that game.
Here are the games for Week 1:
Saskatchewan @ Hamilton
Winnipeg @ B.C.
Toronto @ Edmonton
Montreal @ Calgary
