    Default Football Picks

    Anyone want to play?

    RULES FOR THE FOOTBALL PICKS GAME

    1. All picks for game(s) on any given should be posted one hour before kickoff of the game(s) if possible. The latest anyone can post their picks is anytime within the hour of any game(s) before the kickoff of any game(s) scheduled. For example; a game is scheduled for a 12:00 noon kickoff. The latest time to post picks would be 11:59AM. People can post their 12:00 noon games and their 3:00PM games, etc, separately as long as the posting of any games is before kickoff.

    2. Picks that are late, or are not posted at all by any player(s) will be forced to take the football line which can be found at http://www.footballlocks.com/nfl_lines.shtml unless another source can be agreed upon. Games that have no line, or are ďevenĒ will be considered a tie, unless players can agree on one source of an individual (such as a sports commentator) that posts their picks online provided that the pick(s) were made before the kickoff of any given game in question.

    3. Any player can state that he/she will be picking the opposite (OPP-?) of any other player on any given game as long as the player picking this way has a worse record than the person he/she is specifically picking against. This usually happens around the end of the season, and canít be done on any game played in week 1. This means that a person leading all other players canít do this.

    4. A person can change one, or any number of picks as long as it does not conflict with rule number 1, and isnít, of course, a game already decided.

    5. After the Super Bowl, thereís usually a big pot of winnings to be split between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers. This would be hard to do using players from the JustPlainPolitics pool of players, seeing that most people donít want their identities to be known. So if anyone has any ideas, speak up. It would be nice if there were enough players to award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers something. This doesnít seem possible though.

    Great picks!

    I didn't pick Pitt because of the quarterback problem.

    I should have known better.

    Week One Results:

    christiefan915= 11-5

    Liberty= 10-6

    If anyone feels brave enough, they can take the results of the line for the first week which are 10 wins, 6 loses, and start making picks from the second week.

    Biography:

    Grind is one of the internets most beloved and influential political thinkers and deep-level theorists in the modern era. He rose to prominence in early 2015 when he alleged, contrary to the dominant theory of christiefanism of the time, that Bill Clintons wife was indeed running for president and wasn't considering settling down to be a grandmother. In 2016, Grind was one of the key figures in proposing the new revolutionary theory of "30% is not a rare occurrence" which shook up the JPP political landscape like no other theory ever had before. His academic prowess, deep-level analysis and remarkable insight into human nature and psychology will undoubtedly result in further complexities being untangled and laid bare. He currently resides in boston, his hobbies include #rekking libs, vaping, and patriotism. You can find him in a thread near you.
