Wow, last week was rough on all of us. The first few weeks are always the toughest to pick, so things will get better, trust me. The standings are posted at http://home.sourcecable.net/~roddick/vgcc_standings.htm.
To join in, start making picks. New participants may join up until the Labour Day games.
Each week, reply to the VGCC thread with your picks for the winners.
If you elaborate, make your picks clear at a glance.
Picks must be in PRIOR TO the SCHEDULED KICKOFF TIME in order to qualify for that game.
To change your picks, post a new reply to the thread. Editing your original thread may invalidate all your picks.
At the end of each week, participants will be ranked based on the number of correct picks, followed by most perfect weeks, then highest aggregate spread (the total of the point spreads of all games picked correctly MINUS the total of the point spreads of all games picked incorrectly), and lastly highest percentage correct. Ties will be broken according to participants’ peformance in the most recent week.
The complete rules are posted at http://home.sourcecable.net/~roddick/vgcc_rules.htm.
Now for Week 2. Edmonton has the bye this week.
Ottawa @ Montreal
Toronto @ Saskatchewan
B.C. @ Hamilton
Winnipeg @ Calgary
