Premier Legue Pick 'em
« on: October 04, 2008, 12:25:36 PM »
Week 8 Saturday, 18 October 2008

Arsenal v Everton, 15:00
Aston Villa v Portsmouth, 15:00
Bolton v Blackburn, 15:00
Fulham v Sunderland, 15:00
Hull v West Ham, 15:00
Liverpool v Wigan, 15:00
Man Utd v West Brom, 15:00
Middlesbrough v Chelsea, 15:00
Newcastle v Man City, 15:00
Stoke v Tottenham, 15:00


This is what I'm thinking

For each match, pick the winning team or draw
For each correct pick, 3 pts are awarded for each win and 1 point for each draw
The week's winner gets 3 points, remaining top 1/2 receive 1 point and the bottom 1/2 receives 0 pts for the week*. YE winner has the most points at season's end.

Example 1:
Player A score 26 pts.......3
Player B score 25 pts.......1
Player C score 24 pts.......1
Player D score 20 pts.......0
Player E score 19 pts.......0
Babblelot score 15 pts......0

*if an odd number of people enter, then we will round UP, to determine top half. So, if 7 people enter, then the top half is 4 and the bottom half is 3.

I'm thinking we really don't need tie-breakers since it's a long season, so for Example 2, we'd score it as follows.

Example 2:
Player A score 26 pts.......3
Player B score 26 pts.......3
Player C score 26 pts.......3
Player D score 20 pts.......1
Player E score 20 pts.......1
Babblelot score 15 pts......0

Anyone intersted? Any suggestions to improve the game?

I think I took all that in and fully understand it all and I quite like the idea Babble- seems like some good work on your part and seems set up quite nicely to work very well. There's a few of us here that should be interested in playing this, so I think we could maybe get at least 6 of us playing each week.

^^^^^^^^ First, everyone do like Chris ^^^^^^^^^^^  See how simple that is.
Second, in the US, we put Aston Villa at Portsmouth, so the SECOND team is always the HOME team. Does Europe list the HOME team FIRST? That would clear up the confusion on my end. :laugh-bounce:

I'll be used as the positive example gladly  :))
Yeah in Europe the home team is always written first like Manchester United v West Brom, whereas like you say in the US it would be West Brom @ Manchester United  :)

My dear Babble of course that in Europe first team place is the home team,and you should stick to that...
There is a huge difference between this:Arsenal vs Everton and this: Arsenal @ Everton  ;-()
So,because of that there have been misunderstanding and I know why you changed MF pics :)...And I know now how you want us to play this,so I will stick to your plan ;-()  :

Here you go...:

Arsenal v Everton DRAW
Aston Villa
Bolton v Blackburn DRAW
Fulham
Hull v West Ham DRAW
Liverpool
Man Utd
Chelsea
Newcastle
Tottenham
