    NFL Contest

    C'mon guys, someone please step up and keep this contest going.

    I am actually begging.

    I am traveling a ton with my regular job. My second business is starting to get traction which requires phone calls and meetings in the evenings with casino executives.

    And now my oldest son is playing high school baseball and there are tournaments and college recruiting on the weekends.

    I would like to continue on, however, with everything going on, I will not be able to run this contest like I have in the prior years. I would probably miss posting the NFL lines by Thursday's games or most certainly would be a week or two behind in grading the games, which is not fair to those in the contest.

    You have a good problem.

    Maybe someone steps up to continue your legacy of running the NFL GOW CONTEST FLAWESLY year after year.

    It pains me to see you go- Please stay involved with your tips especially when it comes to the Boilmakers from Purdue

    Is this the pay pick 1 per week contest?

    If so, I will take over running it?

    Thanks Carpet......I am not leaving...I will still participate in the boards when I have a moment either sitting at the airport or in between innings or in between meetings.

    I know Woodee will do a fine job running the NFL contest.

    On a side note, it might be a bitter pill to swallow, but keep an eye on the Boilers first few weeks with lines. This is Hazell's last season under contract. It's year four, so all these guys are now his. Plus, they finally dumped Schoop as O coordinator.

    There might be value in games against Cincinnati and Nevada.

    I will be running the contest this year.

    SAME RULES AS BEFORE that Taxman has used...I THINK THESE ARE ALL PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD?

    Can we get a a link to sign up for payment if it has not been set up yet? Thanks.

    Payouts will be determined once we get field full. I think we paid 1st and second last year?


    ----

    The Pro Football Game of the Week contest is simple. Pick ONE PRO FOOTBALL game per week, against the spread or total. The winner is the contestant with the most wins at the end of the season.

    This contest is held in our main Bookies Hell posting forum. Picks are posted in the appropriate thread each week, and standings are generally posted by Wednesday morning.


    Official Rules (please read closely as the rules have been modified from last year):

    1. The contest will run from Week 1 (September 10, 2015) through the Championship game at Levi's Stadium (February 7, 2015) of the Pro Football schedule.

    2. Your pick may include any game scheduled during the Pro Football week (Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, or Monday game). However, you are only allowed one pick per Pro Football week.

    3. Paid Players in this contest will post one pick per week using the line listed Wednesday morning at a major online sportsbook (lines will be posted by Wednesday for weeks with Thursday games). If more than one pick is posted by a contestant, the first pick will be used. Editing picks will not be allowed. Once your pick is posted it is official.

    4. If a game is posted as "OFF" when lines are posted by Wednesday, it will remain "OFF" for the entire week, even if the side and total are subsequently posted by a Sportsbook later in the week. Posting a game that is "OFF" will be counted as a loss.

    5. The contestant may pick a SIDE or TOTAL!!!

    6. THE FOLLOWING IS THE DEADLINE FOR POSTING A PICK, NO EXCEPTIONS!!
    For games any day of the week (Monday-Sunday): Pick must be posted one hour before the first game of the day's scheduled kickoff time. SEE THE POSTED POINT SPREAD FOR THE EXACT DEADLINE TIMES. No exceptions are made for the late game of the day and for Sunday regular season games no exceptions are made for 4:05, 4:25, and Sunday night football games. No exceptions are made for playoff games (week 18 through week 21), ALL GAMES MUST BE POSTED ONE HOUR BEFORE THE FIRST GAME OF THE DAY'S SCHEDULED KICKOFF!

    7. Should in the event the website is down, you must email your pick to bettorsworld@gmail.com in accordance with Rule 6, deadline for posting a pick.

    8. Not posting a pick for the week WILL be counted as a loss.

    9. Win (1 point), tie/push (1/2 point), and loss (0 point) will be recorded and posted generally no later than Thursday morning of the concluded week.

    10. If you enter after week 1, that counted as a loss to the contestant.

    11. Season ending tiebreakers, if necessary, will be addressed at that time.

    THE PRIZES FOR THIS CONTEST ARE AS FOLLOWS:
