LABOUR DAY WEEKEND! At long last. This is the time of year when the best football begins. Teams trying to move up in the playoff race, or dig themselves out of holes they've been digging all summer long. I LOVE IT!!
Now, the Labour Day games mean that we've got another late week this week. As a result, the Week 10 standings will be posted late. As far as I can tell, this will be the last time this season that this will happen. PLEASE DON'T POST MESSAGES OR SEND ME PM's ASKING WHEN THE STANDINGS WILL BE POSTED, OR WHY THEY HAVEN'T BEEN POSTED YET. I know they're late, and I will get them posted as soon as I can.
The Week 9 standings are up; they are posted here.
Here are the games for Week 10:
B.C. @ Montreal
Winnipeg @ Saskatchewan
Toronto @ Hamilton
Edmonton @ Calgary
To join in, just start making picks. You can join in any time, but the later you join, the more difficult it will be to catch up.
To make your picks, reply to this post with your predicted winners. This is a straight-up win/loss pool; point spreads are not taken into account.
To be considered for any game, your pick for that game must be made PRIOR to the scheduled kickoff time. Even if your pick is made one minute late, or the kickoff is delayed, if it's after the scheduled kickoff time, it's late. No exceptions.
To change your picks, post another reply to the thread. Do NOT edit your original post. I may miss the change, or you may invalidate your picks.
While you're free to elaborate on your picks, your predicted winner must be clear at a glance. I don't want to have to read through a five-hundred word essay to figure out which team you're picking. More accurately, I won't.
Conditional picks are not allowed. That is, there is no "Winnipeg if Pierce plays, Edmonton if he doesn't." If you make a conditional pick, I will accept the first team named as your pick.
The complete rules are posted here.
