NFL CONFIDENCE WEEK 2 09/15-18-19/2022

 

Sorry about all the delays.  Still having problems with WP and they don’t seem eager to correcting the problems they created in the last 2 updates.  Looking for a suitable replacement.

I don’t  know about you.  But I did not miss TNF.  It just does not make sense for me to pay all that money, when my favorite team may only play TNF one time a year.  Next thing you will have to subscribe to Apple TV to watch a game, then ROKU, then HULU, and who knows how many subscriptions you will have.  JUST to watch your favorite team play maybe 1 game a year.

I enjoyed the Bears game Sunday.  Call me old fashioned, but I like the old time style games inclement weather and all PLAYED OUTDOORS. Like it was meant to be.

Although I am still a Russell Wilson fan; and have been since his college days.  I still enjoy watching him play.  But, as you know  I was really disappointed by his defection to the Broncos, SO i was pleased they lost last night, and wish them the same results the rest of the season.  I knew it was time for he and Pete Carrol to part ways.  The only worst teams he could have defected to would be a Florida team.

NOTE: TNF (Thursday Night Football will be broadcast on PRIME VIDEO.  To watch TNF you will be required to have a subscription to Prime Video.  (This is the way I read it.  If I am wrong let me know so I can watch TNF also.  From what I read you have 2 options.  1. An Amazon Prime account.  Cost: $14.99 a month or $139 a year.   2 . A Prime Video membership at $8.99 a month.   I feel you would really want to watch 1 NFL game a week to pay this much.  (As for me I can not see paying for a single game a week, which I will most likely fall asleep before it ends.  I usually do on Sunday, and Monday games.  I usually fall asleep sometime during the game; sometimes I wake up to see the final minutes, MOST of the time I don’t.   I feel like the NFL has done a dis-service to its fans.  NFL already has a pay per view in its NFL + app available for streaming for $9.99 a month which allows you to watch out of market games also.

For those of you who are new here. This is  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.   You add up the TOTAL CORRECT PICKS.. That would be your score.  We use the Monday night (Last game played) as a TIE BREAKER.  The tie is broken by the closest to the total (that is the COMBINED score of the two participating teams) final score, without going over.

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 pts on the second game and lost you would still have  1 pt.

1.  HOWEVER. with the same scenario new scoring system would result with a –14 score

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

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 MIS-COPY OF THE GAMES AND TIMES FEEL  FREE TO EMAIL ME AND TELL ME I GOOFED.
