This week we saw 2 OT games. I separated by a mere point, and 5 by a field goal; or less.
My week was a wash out, only getting 61% of the games correct. However we did get a good opportunity to compare the two scoring options. With the POSITIVE system I scored a mere 52 points. But if you notice with the POSITIVE/NEGATIVE system I only scored 9 points. In conclusion I must say the POSITIVE/NEGATIVE system seems to be a really more competitive system.
Which do you prefer?
For those of you who do not know how confidence ranking goes, let me explain.
If we were playing an office pool,(which we ARE NOT). The object is to score the most points. To obtain the score YOU rank the teams by how confident you are a team will win its game. EXAMPLE: Say this week we have 16 games. The team you are most confident will win you would assign the number 16 and follow down to the team you are least confident in and assign that number 1. We use the Monday night game as a TIE BREAKER. The tie is broke by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating tams) final score, without going over.
If we were playing this is how my sheet would look; My pick will be in bold Capital letters. you can use circling, underlining, or highlighting. I will show my correct points in Bold
YOU can adopt the scoring described above. Or, the optional method. A negative score for missed games. We will continue to get a positive score for correct predictions. EXAMPLE: if you scored 1 pt on the first game and you had 15 pt on the second game and lost you would still have a Positive 1. HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a -14 score.
I will fill in my picks Thursday. Until then feel free to:
Just copy and paste for your own Fun Pool Use. Or to see if you can beat me.
IF YOU SEE I MADE A MISS COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.
I had some requests from the people who copy and paste, for their own pool to move the network out of the score column. I aim to please. So I hope this is better
GOOD LUCK TO ALL.
