That's it for another year of NFL Prophet! Firstly, congratulations to me. I've already collected my $10 in prize money from myself and am about to go and spend it.
Secondly, congratulations to Nick, who tied for first place on 64 points and finished second only on percentage. Had the Packers defeated the Vikings in week 17 as they should have, he would have emerged as champion.
Thirdly, congratulations to tally ho, who, after winning it all last season, followed up with a top three finish this season. Everybody loves a consistent performer.
And finally, congratulations to benspin, who topped the table on percentage with a very impressive 67.8%, and to crumdiddly, who recorded the first ever perfect week in week 7.
Thanks to everybody who participated. I hope you'll all join us again next season, and perhaps even bring along a friend or two!
Well, we had our first tied game in NFL Prophet history this week. And the algorithm performed as intended! Pleasantly surprising...
Jealously is an ugly colour Shlozza. Don't try and diminish my perfect round! hahaha. Go Pats!
Congratulations are in order to crumdiddly, who just logged the first perfect week in the history of NFL Prophet. Admittedly he picked the easiest week for it, when there were only thirteen games played, but it is still a remarkable achievement and one which, frankly, I wasn't sure we would ever see. Bravo, crumdiddly!
That just means that the BGN players are much better at ranking their predictions than we are (I'm looking at you, "Helen").
Well, week 1 is in the books and it was fairly high-scoring for the most part. RG3 & the Skins cost a lot of people a lot of points, but otherwise there weren't too many upsets. Dynasty has hit the lead with a solid performance worth 7 points, while Caz and MightyJoe aren't far behind with 6 and 5 respectively.
BGN are sitting on top of the league ladder with a higher average score than the Wizards of Oz, but the Wizards have the better percentage.
With lockout a little less than two days away, it's time to get cracking on your picks for week 2. And if you got zero points in week 1, don't panic - there's plenty of time left to make up the lost ground. Best of luck, everybody!
I don't get a star :(
Hey, I get a shiny star next to my name... Awesome!
If you've come here after reading my post on BGN, please ignore my ill-mannered friends below. You're more than welcome to engage them in conversation on the public discussion board, but it may be safer to keep to the BGN league-specific discussion board. If this whole thing seems rather amateurish... well... it is. But that's part of the charm! Or so I choose to believe...
Well, I don't know you...
Is anyone outside of people you know going to join this?
Just get rrady to lose Shlozza. Again.
Changing your name won't make any difference
Hi folks, and welcome to NFL Prophet 2012. It's a new season and a fresh start for all. You can finally leave behind the disappointment of last season and move forward with fresh hope.
My name is Shlozza, formerly The Prophet, and I'm the administrator and overlord of this little competition. If you're new to NFL Prophet, please be sure to read the introductory FAQ on the home page. Then create yourself an account and submit your predictions for week 1.
This is the public discussion board, accessible to all participants. If you are a member of one of more leagues, you will also have a separate and private discussion board for each such league, accessible only to members of that league. If you're not a member of a league, you can create one and invite your friends, family and colleagues to join you.
Please note that you submit only one set of predictions, regardless of the number of leagues in which you are participating. The currently selected league affects only the Rankings and Discussions tabs.
That's it for now. Let the tipping and ripping begin!
