official pool rules | 2016

  • A One Time Entry Fee of $33.00 is required for all participants. This covers all 17 weeks of play ($1.00 per week), a $11.00 Bonus for end of year prizes, and a $5.00 Administrative Fee. Entry Fee money is due by SUNDAY, 9/18/2016*.

    *IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID BY THIS DATE - YOU WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE POOL!

    Send your payments to:
    Tom Clark
    5 Whalen Avenue
    Sicklerville, NJ 08081

    Or I will accept PayPal payments if you ask me - just make sure your total value to me = $33
    Depending on how your account is setup - you may need to add the PayPal fee into the payment to
    ensure it delivers the full amount to my account.

  • Fill out the Pick Sheet each week (online or email) and submit them! -- Don't forget your Monday Night Football Total Points! After you click the SUBMIT button, you will be directed to a summary page of your picks. It is highly recommended that you print this page out, make a PDF, save the HTML or capture a screen shot. Something to show that you submitted your picks in the event that there is a problem with the submission process. If you don't have a record and neither do I, they do NOT exist! You can also check the VIEW PICKS section each week before the Sunday games to make sure your picks have been registered.

    NOTE - Picks are made using a Spread. (Ask someone if you don't know what that is, it's not too complex.)

  • EACH WEEK- The Winner(s) gets/splits the weekly prize amount. Winners are determined by the most correct games picked in the week. (Note - When a score falls even on the Spread Line - IT IS A LOSS). In the event of a tie(s), whomever comes closest to the MNF Total Points (Over or Under makes no difference) wins the week's prize. If two or more people have the same number or are the same points away above and below, they will split the week's prize.

    The prize will be $1 per pool participant.

    EXAMPLE
    77 pool participants, ONE person wins the week = that person wins $77.00

  • YEAR END - At the end of the year, the Participant with the best overall picking percentage will win 70% of the Bonus Money. 2nd Place gets 20% and 3rd Place gets 10%.

    EXAMPLE
    77 pool participants, Total Bonus Money = $615.00
    1st Gets $430.00
    2nd Gets $125.00
    3rd Gets $60.00

    *If there are ties, I will combine money from the tiered spots and split that evenly amongst the top finishers.

Sign Up for the Pool ASAP and turn in your $33.00 by September 18, 2016 to Tom Clark.

IMPORTANT

You must submit ALL picks in every week in order to be eligible for the YEAR END prize. Failure to submit picks in any given week will result in an 0-fer for that week. You may email a default picking procedure to be used if you miss a week for any reason (Example: All Dogs, All Home Teams, All Favorites, etc.). This can be done at anytime.

Check the PICKS section for the deadline for submission. On most weeks, it will be Saturday, but exceptions do occur.
