WOW! Our combined records for last week were 272-69, and 32 people went 4-0! And most who didn't manage a perfect week went 3-1. The standings are posted here. If the old standings show up, click your browser's REFRESH button, and you should see the current ones.
We're now going into the bye weeks. This thread is for BOTH Week 8 and Week 9. You can make your picks for all four games together, or wait until after Week 8 to post your picks for Week 9. To be credited with a perfect week, you will need to get all four games correct. I will still post the standings after Week 8.
Here are the games for Week 8:
Saskatchewan @ Toronto
B.C. @ Edmonton
And for Week 9:
Hamilton @ Winnipeg
Montreal @ Calgary
To join in, just start making picks. You can join in at any time, though the later in the season you join, the harder 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 "Calgary if Burris 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.
