Getting a bit of an early start this week because of the late game in Week 7.
This thread is for Weeks 8 and 9; each week consists of two games, so the two are being treated as one normal week. In order to be credited with a perfect week, you must pick all four games correctly.
You can make your picks for all four games at once, or one week at a time, which ever you prefer. I will post the standings after each week as usual.
I will get the Week 7 standings posted as soon as I can; as usual, they will be posted here.
Here are the games for Week 8:
Winnipeg @ Montreal
Hamilton @ Toronto
And here are the games for Week 9:
Calgary @ B.C.
Saskatchewan @ Edmonton
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.
