Week 15 Prediction Games (READ first paragraph of FanPost)

The 49ers are playing on Thursday this week, which means the prediction contest schedule is a little screwy. Here's the plan: You can either make all your picks at once before Thursday, or you can make your 49ers pick before then and your other picks Friday or Saturday. If you choose the latter, you MUST reply to your 49ers pick with the rest of your picks. This will keep it relatively organized for bignerd to figure out everybody's scores.

I've posted formatting rules after the jump. Remember that all times are pacific.

49ers @ San Diego - Thursday 12/16 5:20pm

Chicago @ Minnesota - MNF 12/20 5:30pm

Green Bay @ New England - SNF 12/19 5:20pm

Jacksonville @ Indianapolis - Sunday 12/19 10:00am

Philadelphia @ NY GIants - Sunday 12/19 10:00am

Atlanta @ Seattle - Sunday 12/19 1:05pm

We implemented this rule last season and it seemed to make things easier for us. Previously, folks had just posted their scores in any particular fashion, although howtheyscored had made requests for a specific format.  Given the amount of time and effort howtheyscored has to put into determining the final results, I am implementing a requirement for how to format your scores (based on the spreadsheet howtheyscored has created).  If you fail to follow this format, any incorrectly formatted scores for the week will be disqualified.  The format is "Team A @ Team B: A score - B score."  That basically is visitor @ home: visitor score - home score."  Here's an example of how to do it:

Using  Atlanta @ Seattle below, if you think Seattle will win 24-14, here's how it needs to appear:


Atlanta @ Seattle: 14 - 24

If you think Atlanta will win 24-14, it needs to appear as this:


Atlanta @ Seattle: 24 - 14

If you'd like you can bold the winner ( Atlanta @ Seattle: 14 - 24), but that is not required (although probably a good backup in case you reversed the score by accident.

If you make a mistake in the formatting I'll reply to your score reminding you to correct it.  To correct it, simply reply to your picks and post them in the correct format.  Do not post your scores again at the bottom of the thread.  I'll make sure and include these directions each week so people do not forgot and lose out on points.

If anybody has any questions at all about this, or anything related to the contest, let me know ( and I'll answer them.
