NFL Super Bowl XLVII Round Prediction Games Results

Thanks to all who played and participated this season, only wish it could have ended better :(. I appreciate the nice remarks I've received for the contest in the comment section. Of course we will be back on schedule next season. There was a lot of discussion this year on contest rules and I will be looking into revising them. People have shared a number of comments and thoughts on the contest, what should change and why things shouldn't change. I'll take the summer to decide. Personally I'm motivated to change something seeing participation tapered off as the season went along. My guess is people decided they were out of contention and dropped out. Looking back those who hung around Top 40 status kept playing til the end. As always I'm still open to suggestions.

Thanks again to our Quarterly Contest Winners: Haggardninja, Str8Balr, Fred.P.Soft and jbrown63. I'll remind Fooch via email of our winners. I'm under the impression there were contest prizes but you never know. Fooch probably hawked all his belongings and than some to get to New Orleans.

Playoff Results

Well we have a winner ... sorta. None of the finalist correctly picked the Super Bowl winner. Our champion was decided by a tiebreaker; total offensive yards between 49ers and Ravens. The closest guess of 808 yards to the actual total of 835 yards crowns the winner and repeat champion Str8Balr! Likely this ushers in the strangest Prediction Contest dynasty of all time. Remember last year he was co-champion because neither he nor the other champion bothered to submit a tiebreaker. I'm very impressed Str8Balr. Either you're very lucky, very good or like Ray Lewis, two innocent people must always die to pay God for your Super Bowl ring. The target on your back next season will be huge.

Congrats to the other contestants that made it this far: bayboy, neder, obfuscius and Mo9er. I know it burns to not win it, just ask the 49ers.

BIT Results

Wasn't an impressive finish in this contest either. This weeks point getters include two people attempting to reverse jinx the 49ers, a Raven's fan and point vulture. As a result the BIT winner is grantmp powered by his perfect prediction in the SF @ ATL contest two weeks ago. grantmp, it's not a championship but is a belt, wear it with pride while watching out for Tito Santana and the Honky Tonk Man.

Scoring Explained

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.
