RULES & INSTRUCTIONS
WHAT IS IT?
A FUN WAY TO ENJOY THE FOOTBALL SEASON WHILE
COMPETING AGAINST FELLOW FANS.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
NOTHING, ZIP, ZILCH, NADDA!  PARTICIPATION IS FREE
AND REWARDS ARE ALSO.  IN OTHER WORDS, YOU PAY
NOTHING,  YOU GET NOTHING OTHER THAN THE
ENJOYMENT OF PLAYING.
HOW DOES IT WORK?   (THE RULES)

1.  BEFORE EACH WEEK'S GAMES, YOU WILL BE PROVIDED
WITH INFORMATION TO ASSIST YOU WITH CHOOSING THE
WINNING TEAMS.  EMAILS WILL BE SENT NOTIFYING YOU
WHEN THE INFORMATION AND PICK SHEETS ARE
AVAILABLE.

2.  ONCE AVAILABLE, YOU SIMPLY OPEN THE PICKS PAGE
FOR THAT WEEK, FILL IN YOUR NAME IN THE "NAME
FIELD", THEN MAKE YOUR SELECTIONS FOR THE WEEK'S
GAMES.  

3.  FOR THE MONDAY NIGHT GAME, ENTER THE TOTAL
POINTS YOU THINK WILL BE SCORED BY BOTH TEAMS
COMBINED.  IN PREVIOUS YEARS, THIS WAS MORE
FLEXIBLE AS TO HOW YOU SUBMITTED THIS INFORMATION.
 HOWEVER, MOVING TO AN ONLINE FORMAT MEANS THAT
YOU MUST ENTER THE INFORMATION A CERTAIN WAY.  
HERE IS HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR ENTRY:  

MONDAY NIGHT, TEAM A PLAYS TEAM B.  YOU BELIEVE
THAT TEAM A WILL WIN THE GAME BY A SCORE OF X TO Y.  
ADD 'X' AND 'Y' TOGETHER TO GET THE TOTAL POINTS
SCORED BY BOTH TEAMS COMBINED.  ENTER THAT TOTAL
AMOUNT IN THE BOX.  

FICTIONAL EXAMPLE OF A MONDAY NIGHT GAME:
"TEAM A" THE WEST MEMPHIS SKID ROW BUMS 24  
"TEAM B" THE LAS VEGAS GAMBLERS 10
24 PLUS 10 EQUALS 34
ENTER "34" IN THE "MONDAY NIGHT SCORE" BOX

4.CURRENT WEEK PICK SHEETS WILL REMAIN AVAILABLE
UNTIL 12:00 NOON  EASTERN, ON THE SUNDAY OF THAT
WEEK.  PICKS MUST BE MADE BEFORE THAT TIME.  AT 12
NOON EASTERN, THE LINK TO THE PICK SHEET WILL BE
DEACTIVATED AND NO MORE PICKS FOR THAT WEEK WILL
BE ACCEPTED.  IF YOU WISH TO MAKE A CHANGE TO YOUR
SELECTIONS FOR THE WEEK, ALL FINAL CHOICES MUST BE
MADE PRIOR TO SUNDAY AT NOON EASTERN.  IF GAMES
ARE BEING PLAYED PRIOR TO SUNDAY, AS WITH OPENING
WEEKEND, THANKSGIVING, AND LATE SEASON WHEN
GAMES ARE PLAYED ON THURSDAYS & SATURDAYS, YOU
WILL RECEIVE AN EMAIL REMINDING YOU THAT THERE ARE
EARLY WEEK GAMES AND TO MAKE YOUR SELECTIONS.   
YOU WILL STILL BE ABLE TO MAKE CHANGES TO
SELECTIONS, OTHER THAN THE GAMES THAT HAVE
ALREADY KICKED OFF, UNTIL NOON ON SUNDAY FOR THAT
WEEK.   ALL SELECTIONS FOR GAMES PLAYED BEFORE
SUNDAY MUST BE SUBMITTED NO LATER THAN ONE HOUR
BEFORE THE KICKOFF OF THAT GAME.  NO SELECTIONS
FOR ANY GAME WILL BE ACCEPTED AFTER ONE HOUR
PRIOR TO KICKOFF FOR THAT GAME.  

6.  WHEN YOU SUBMIT YOUR SELECTIONS, YOUR
SUBMISSION IS TIME AND DATE STAMPED.  NO
SELECTIONS OR CHANGES TO SELECTIONS CAN BE MADE
AFTER THE GAME HAS KICKED OFF.  SELECTIONS MUST BE
SUBMITTED PRIOR TO THE KICK OFF OF THAT GAME OR
NOON EASTERN ON SUNDAY, WHICHEVER IS
APPROPRIATE.   
SINCE THERE IS NO MONEY, WHAT DO I GET IF I WIN?
YOU RECEIVE THE UNDYING ADMIRATION OF YOUR FELLOW
FANS AND BRAGGING RIGHTS FOR A PERIOD OF ONE WEEK
OR UNTIL THE NEXT WEEK'S FIRST GAME IS PLAYED,
WHICH EVER IS LESS.  IF THE FOLLOWING WEEK'S GAMES
BEGIN ON SUNDAY, YOU GET ADMIRATION AND BRAGGING
RIGHTS FOR 6 WHOLE DAYS.  IF THE FOLLOWING WEEK'S
GAMES BEGIN EARLIER, WELL, THEN YOU ONLY GET UNTIL
THAT WEEK'S GAMES KICK OFF.  
WHAT IF I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS?
SEND AN EMAIL TO THE WEBMASTER USING THE
"CONTACT US" LINK ON THE SITE'S MAIN PAGE.  ALL
QUESTIONS WILL BE ANSWERED AS SOON AS RECEIVED,
BUT NO LATER THAN 24 HOURS AFTER THEY ARE SENT
UNLESS THE WEBMASTER IS UNAVAILABLE DUE TO
TRAVEL, ETC.  IN THIS EVENT, NOTIFICATION OF ABSENCE
WILL BE POSTED TO THE SITE INFORMING PLAYERS THAT
THE WEBMASTER WILL BE UNAVAILABLE FOR A SPECIFIED
PERIOD OF TIME.  IN THAT CASE, ALL QUESTIONS WILL BE
ANSWERED WITHIN 24 HOURS AFTER THE WEBMASTER
RETURNS.
