Week 8 Prediction Games: No Hablo Concurso De Predicción

So the results are a night late ... I did say a few entries would be posted on a Wednesday. A few people politely asked that I shut my jive turkey in the comment threads and get busy publishing their score. Thanks, at least I know you care.

I have gotten reports about a minor uprising on how the game is scored. Truthfully I'm too busy conducting state business inside my luxury point place trying to figure out if I should fly in truffles from northern Italy or purchase an entire bluefin tuna to eat for dinner. You point paupers, who personally feel I give away to many undeserved points to can try to hash out some collective suggestions using this board. I might take into account such drivel or I could simply write down all your names and have mod mcwagner hang you all in town square. Either way I'm reading it so it's a win-win for you.

Rank Screen Name Points Comments
CUARENTAYNUEVES 1st CUARENTAYNUEVES 12 Was afraid to peek at the translation but its clever. 1st and first time combo, for a $200 (dólar) entry I say you cannot do it next week.
jbrown63 2nd jbrown63 11 FRAUD! Score should have been 24-6, kick the FG and Stuart knows it.
rlott#42 3rd rlott#42 10 BENCH rlott#42! A competent predictor would have scored 25 points! Where are all the haterz now, TOP 3?! Those who thought rlott#42 didn't know football are a bunch of wally wally blood and dolly.
grantmp 4th grantmp 9 Giants winning wasn't enough? 2nd, 3rd, 4th helpings of euphoria?
Drew Kerr 5th Drew Kerr 8 Impressive, skips picking a game and didn't even need bonus points to crack the top 5.
nostocksjustbonds 5th nostocksjustbonds 8 Inspiration to mcgwireliar, wiztestarossasosa, cardcheaterpalmeiro, imarocketmanhghallnightlong and notlegbutarmstrong.
bignerd 5th bignerd 8 More celebration of me. Keeping the good times rolling, even beecharmer has to be impressed.

Prediction Contest Rules and Guidelines

Your prediction has these same three components as the actual game score.

1) If you predict the correct winner for an individual game, we will score your prediction against the actual game. If you predict the incorrect winner for an individual game, your prediction will not be scored.

2) Ideally, you will predict the exact point differential of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 45. If you predict a score with a PD of 45, the difference between your predicted PD and the actual PD is 0 (45 - 45 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

3) Ideally, you will predict the exact point total of the actual game. Say, for example, this is 65. If you predict a score with a PT of 65, the difference between your predicted PT and the actual PT is 0 (65 - 65 = 0). The worse your prediction, the greater that difference becomes. Therefore, the closer the difference is to zero, the better.

So, assuming that you predict the correct winner of the individual game, we simply add the difference between your predicted and the actual PD to the difference between your predicted and the actual PT. The closer this total is to zero, the better your prediction is. A zero exactly will always be a perfect prediction.

pPD = Predicted Point Differential
aPD = Actual Point Differential
pPT = Predicted Point Total
aPT = Actual Point Total
x = Subscore

|pPD - aPD| + |pPT - aPT| = x

That total becomes your subscore for each individual game. These subscores are then ranked, and the five best (including ALL ties) are awarded points. Perfect predictions are awarded 10 points. If the highest subscore for a particular game is not a perfect prediction, it is awarded 5 points. Points then follow in descending order, so that all of the second best predictions get 4 points, the third best all get 3 points, and so on.
