PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD UNLESS YOU ARE MISSION146

Greetings!

The time has come, once again, for the 2021 WoV NFL Picks Game!!!

Please forgive the break we took in 2020, but given Covid-19, I feared that there might be some significant variables when it came to games getting cancelled outright and things along those lines, so it seemed prudent not to have the game last year. There existed the probability of having to either make 100 rule stipulations, or do some judgment calls, which I generally prefer not to do.

One other thing, I intend to send out the PM invites starting on August 1st. If someone could possibly make a note to themselves to remind me to do that, I would be incredibly grateful.

HOW TO PLAY:

The Rules will be as follows:

Format:

Top Three Paid as Follows:

First Place: $300 (This person will also win all Entry Fees)
Second Place: $175
Third Place: $25 (In effect, this just means you won't have to pay your Entry Fee to the winner)

(As you can see, I am adopting a fixed prize structure for Top Three this season.)

There are also two Consolation Prizes for those who do not finish in the Top 3. I will contribute $75 to each prize for $150 total.

We will also be doing the, "Perfection Bonus," again this year. As a reminder, ALL WINNINGS, including Perfection Bonuses, are paid out at the end of the season.

ENTRY FEES AND DISCLAIMERS:

1.)If you play, you are expected to pay the winner $25 if you do not win. There are no free dropouts. Even if you only play one week, you are agreeing to pay the winner if you lose. This is NOT a free contest.

2.) This is a social gambling game, so please check your jurisdictional laws to make sure that you do not participate unlawfully. It is not the responsibility of myself nor this website to ensure that you are participating lawfully.

3.) This is a game where the skill of participants (making picks) could result in a greater advantage.

4.) This game has no rake or house edge. In fact, I contribute funds to this game that make it +EV (all else equal) for everyone except myself. I do NOT collect any Entry Fees for this game, so participants are on the, "Honor System," to pay the winner.

5.) Mission146 is a resident of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania who administers this game from same AND is offering this contest legally under social gambling statutes due to the fact that there is no, "Rake," "House Edge," or any other mechanism by which Mission146 stands to profit.

6.) Other than being posted here on WizardofVegas, this game is NOT sponsored or sanctioned in any way whatsoever by LCB.org, ownership or management of LCB.org, or any other websites or other outlets so affiliated. ALL players volunteer to risk an equal entry fee and all (current) additional prizes are paid for, personally, by Mission146.

If you have a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER.


Consolation Prizes:

The first consolation prize will be the, "You suck," consolation prize. This prize goes to the player with the worst record, if there is a tie, then the winner shall be adjudicated by the normal tiebreaker rules.

The second consolation prize will be the, "Most Average," consolation prize which goes to the player that finishes the season closest to .500. Tiebreakers will also be adjudicated using the normal tie breaking Rule or the players may opt to split it.

Each of these prizes pays $75 as follows:

-I pay your $25 Entry Fee to the winner on your behalf.
-I pay you $50.

I can win either of the consolation prizes, so I am, "Defending," them. This year, I am allowing myself to be capable of winning Entry Fees if I come in First Place in the overall contest. However, I will pay my offered 1st/2nd/3rd Place prizes to 2nd/3rd/4th place accordingly in the unlikely event I do win. I will name a neutral party to receive my Picks via PM (without opening them unless I win) which will prove that I made my Picks BEFORE looking at the Picks of other participants.

If I come in either second or third overall, then I simply save the money that would otherwise go to that prize.

Perfection Bonus

In order to win the Perfection Bonus, you MUST make a Confidence Pick and have a 6-0 week. The Perfection Bonus pays $10/week which accumulates if there are no perfect records for the week before. If more than one player has a perfect record that week, then any accumulated amount will be split between them. These bonuses will be paid out at the end of the season and tallied until then.

For simplicity, there will be no, "Breakage." Any accumulated Perfection Bonuses won that are not whole dollar amounts will round up to the nearest dollar.

If nobody wins the Perfection Bonus in Week 17 (and any weeks leading up to that without a winner) then I just save that money. If I win the Perfection Bonus, then I just save that money.

Rules:

1.) The winner will be determined by having the highest winning percentage. In the event of a tie for any prize, the winners will have the option of either splitting the take, or they may agree to PM me a Super Bowl pick prior to the Super Bowl, but after the combatants are known, consisting of the winning team, spread and TD's thrown; the winner will be determined in that order. If two Members PM me the same thing, they will BOTH be asked to change at least one aspect of their picks.

2.) The procedure for this will be that at some point on Thursdays, I will post the point spreads and Over/Unders from one source per week. I will likely use VegasInsider and the Spreads & Over/Unders I post will be constant and may be picked at any time prior to 10:00 EST on Sunday. If there is a Sunday game earlier than that, or a Saturday game, then you must submit Picks before kickoff of that game if you wish to pick the early game. Early Sunday Kickoffs will be announced in both threads.

2a.) There will be NO EXCEPTIONS WHATSOEVER to the deadline for any reason. Too much controversy.

2b.) This has never happened, but if you make, "Early Game," picks and then send a new set of Picks after the, "Early Game," has kicked off, you will receive a record of 0-5 for that week.

3.) Saturday/Sunday/Monday games will be the only games considered. Every player must pick exactly five winners against the Spread, exactly five Over/Unders, or a combination totaling exactly five.

3a.) A "Confidence Pick," is only considered ONE PICK for the purposes of Rule 3. Five unique Picks are still needed.

4.) Players may, "Skip," one week without making any picks, but they don't have to. If a player accidentally fails to submit picks, that will constitute the, "Skip," Week.

For players who join the contest in Week 2, Week 1 will constitute the, "Skip," week.

You cannot join the contest after Week 2.

4a.) If you wish to avoid unintentionally skipping a week, then you may submit Default Picks. However, in order to avoid controversy, (and make my life easier) Default Picks are limited to selecting sixteen NFL Teams and your picks will automatically be those teams in the order listed GAME TOTAL-OVER picks. If we go to your Default Picks, none of them shall be a Confidence Pick and you do not qualify for the Perfection Bonus that week.

4b.) On a case-by-case basis, I will consider allowing Picks to be made in advance of the Lines being posted by me. If I do this, it can only be for that week's Picks. (IOW---you might be permitted to make your picks on Tuesday for the following Sunday's games)

5.) If a player fails to make picks for more than one week, he/she forfeits any right to a consolation prize, but may continue to play. Every week of missed picks other than the allotted, "Skip Week," will result in an 0-5 record for all weeks missed.

6.) Picks will be PM'ed to me at any point prior to 10:00 a.m. EST Sunday, all picks will be openly posted by me between that time and kickoff.***

***The exception to this Rule is that I will accept E-Mail Picks from banned Members, but only if they are banned. If you are banned, you can still receive PM's, so I will PM you an E-Mail address.

7.) At some point on Tuesday or Wednesday the picks, results and updated Standings will be posted by EdCollins or myself in the Discussion Thread. Please, "Self-Police," your own Standings to see if there is an inaccuracy. There hasn't been one in three years, so I trust EdCollins' program and usually do not double check.

8.) CONFIDENCE PICK: You may make one, "Confidence Pick," per week, though you don't have to. Your, "Confidence Pick," must be made expressly clear in your PM. The CONFIDENCE PICK result will count either as two wins or two losses, if made.

8a.) A "Confidence Pick," is only considered ONE PICK for the purposes of Rule 3. Five unique Picks are still needed.

8b.) If you wish to qualify for the, "Perfection Bonus," that week, you MUST make a Confidence Pick.

9.) "Offsetting Picks"

Any Picks made that directly offset one another shall constitute TWO LOSSES and will disqualify the person making such offsetting picks from winning any consolation prize. "Offsetting Picks," are picking two opposite things to happen in the same game.

10.) PM REMINDERS: I will GENERALLY send reminders to make your Picks on sometime Saturday if I have not received them already. Reminders are to be considered a courtesy not a guarantee, everyone is accountable for remembering to make their Picks whether or not reminders are sent. If anyone chews me out for missing reminders, I'll probably just stop sending them entirely.

TIME

1.) The first Sunday of the Season is September 12th, Lines will be posted on Thursday, September 9th.

PICK FORMAT

I WILL be enforcing a uniform Pick format this year for all Picks as of Week 3. For the first two weeks, if you send me Picks that are not in the correct format, I will acknowledge that I have received your Picks by re-sending them to you in the correct format.

1.) No Line Breaks

2.) For Spread picks, simply put the team nickname and the spread. (Ex: Bengals +5)

3.) For Over/Unders, simply put the team nickname for EITHER team, and the Over or Under amount. (Ex: Bengals OVER 25)

4.) To designate a Confidence Pick, simply put a hyphen and, "Confidence," after the pick. (Ex: Bengals OVER 25-Confidence)

5.) Place your screen name followed by a colon (:) above your set of Picks.

So, a full set of picks might appear:

Mission146:
Buccaneers -15
Buccaneers OVER 52
Jaguars +12
Jaguars UNDER 42
Jets +4-Confidence

ANNOUNCEMENT

Greetings!

Due to some controversy that I am not going to get into at this time, I would like to make the following Announcement:

1.) Any Picks Games that anyone else wishes to bankroll are to take place completely separately and without me Administrating them in any way whatsoever.

2.) Any side bets or (additional) prizes relating to what occurs in this game may be discussed in the discussion thread, but will NOT be Administrated by me whatsoever.

3.) Any side bets or prizes that would involve any scoring outside of what I would normally do in the context of this game will NOT be Administrated by me whatsoever.

4.) Any separate contests that anyone would wish to bankroll should NOT be mentioned in the discussion thread and should instead have a separate thread created.

5.) In short, I will have nothing to do with any other prizes or contests that anyone else wishes to do.

PLAYOFF PICKS GAME:

1.) I MAY choose to administer a Playoff Picks Game this year. I do not believe that I did one in 2018 (there was a NCAAF Bowl Contest and a Super Bowl Props Contest already going on that year) and while I did Administrate the 2019 Playoff Picks Game; I did not contribute the prizes.

2.) I will make a decision in the middle of the season (around Week 10) whether or not I wish to conduct a Playoff Picks Game. If I decide to do so, at a minimum, everyone playing this game will have to express their intent to participate.

-One thing that frustrated me about past Playoff Picks Games is that the number of participants generally dropped, even though that game had no Entry Fee.

3.) One or two of the Perfection Bonuses from the 2019 WoV NFL Picks Game had the winners request that I use it to seed the 2020 March Madness Game, which didn't happen because March Madness was cancelled.

-Those funds (which weren't much in total) I will figure out and partially use to seed a 2022 March Madness Picks Game. I apologize for not using these for a 2021 March Madness Game, but to be honest, I'd completely forgotten about it by then.

-There were also two perfection bonuses from 2019 (DJATC and BeachBumBabs) that I can't find any record of ever having been claimed. I'd even sent some PM's titled, "I Would Like to Pay You Please," at that time. It was at that time that a few people asked me to add it to March Madness 2020---but that tournament did not end up happening.

-Anyway, we will do a March Madness 2022 contest and I will figure out and dispose of any related funds from 2019 Playoff Perfection Bonuses at that time. I think it's like $30-$40 in total***, but I will also be adding other prizes.

***Kuma won $10 in Perfection Bonus that he asked to be added to 2020 March Madness Free Roll. That tournament did not happen, but that money will be used to partially seed 2022 March Madness Free Roll and he will be given credit. DJATC ($6.67) and BeachBumBabs ($10) did not claim their Perfection Bonuses, so those will be added to 2022 March Madness with credit given them, unless they contact me and ask me to do something else with it.

    Week 2 Perfection Bonus: $10

    Note: I feel like we're missing someone this week, but given that this is Week 2, it will be easy to figure out who it is from the standings after the week is over. Unfortunately, there were zero new entries this week, as far as I can tell, which takes UnJon's added prizes off the table. Who knew that so many people wouldn't want to come and snatch up some EV?

    Week 1 Perfection Bonus Winner: Unjon ($10)
