Once again, I present to you, the official arfcom BFL Pick 'em game.

Once again, we'll give a magazine of choice to the winner, not to exceed $25 including shipping, must be legal in your state. If not, we can do a membership to the site.

We all had a great time last year, and it was really close. We had some come from way , way back to get in the top three spots.

As was stated in the NFL thread, we had a really fun year last year. There will be a mag of your choice not to exceed $25 shipped, or if not legal in your state, a membership, or anything else that's $25.

I will leave open spots for the old players for 10 days, after which, it will be open to anyone. Just post on this thread if you want to play, and if you played last year with us, then I think you just click rejoin.

Anyway, hope we have as much or more fun as last year. Lots of rivalries going on.

Here are the 2015 final standings. If you notice, this one was close. It came down to the last game, and it was a tie. A tiebreaker was used to select the winner. And, as in the NFL thread, if you'd like to do the $5 thing where I can do top three prizes, or get some cups printed, or maybe T-shirts or something, let me know.

I'll post this in this weekends nascar thread, as usual, since a lot of players play football and nascar games, but I want to bump it up for the others.

Bump for Sunday, let's get a full roster, we got close last year.

Sorry for the inconvenience guys, I had to start a new college one as well. The thing wouldn't let me rejoin or anything, or it could be me, I've been slipping lately.

Anyway, join the PRO game too.

Need to get back in on this
Link Posted: 8/31/2016 7:56:22 PM EST
Then come on back. It was a mess to set up this year for some reason. I think there are ballgames this week right?

I'm not sure, but I think this is set up to drop the worst week, I know one of them is. Anyway, starting late or missing a week seems to not make a lot of difference. Didn't last few years. We had guys that came in late vie for the lead.

I've been lucky , every year I wind up in the top 5-7, basically the top half. If I get higher than that it's great. I almost won one last year. It came down to me and another member, the last game, and a tie breaker. He got me by a half point I think it was. I think it went by who had the most correct picks that week or something.

Week one should be wild.

Good luck everyone. And anyone that wants to join, you still can.

Looks like everybody picked OSU. Some of us lost way more pts on that game than others though .
Link Posted: 9/3/2016 6:05:48 PM EST
LSU went down. Luckily, we all seem to pick the same teams for the most part, so points totals will still be close at the end of the day.
Link Posted: 9/4/2016 1:18:24 PM EST
Well we now have our first week in the books. As usual, I will post the week's results / current standings.

Looks like the first week goes to Sweetchuck1983 with 40 pts. Good picking Chuck.

espn72628836's, if you don't mind, please post your username in this thread, or change your profile on the game and put your username in one of the spots so that you will be credited.

Get ready for next week, and the Pro starts soon as well. Get in that if you aren't signed up.

lol, yeah I had to unlock it. I'm keeping both open until next week, so anyone can join at that time.

I just need to ask that you post your username for that in the appropriate thread if it's different than your arfname. If it's the same, Just post that you're in.

Anyone that isn't from here will get kicked next week.

I need to add, please change on of the two names on the ESPN thing to your username here, or something besides the ESPN thing, and post here what you changed it to. Those ESPN generated number names get confusing when posting the rankings, plus there's a prize for the winner, so I need to know who to give it to.

Welcome back. There was a glitch or something in setting it up. It wouldn't let me just go back to the old game and start the year like it used to. I had to start a new one. Normally, had I started the old game, it would have sent everyone an email letting you know it was time for the season to start a few weeks be

OK, week three in the books now. Wild week in some ways. FSU , what they heck? Anyway, the results for this week are in.

Congrats to my very own self for 1st place for the week.

Also, congrats to myself for 1st place overall for the total. I'm sure I'll be displaced in the next week or two. In 7 years of playing on here, I've never held top spot over a week or two, and I won the title once in one of the two games, but that was when someone else was running the game.

Don't forget your NFL picks today.
Link Posted: 9/24/2016 5:02:12 AM EST
Saturday morning, so get your picks in. Good luck.

PS, let's see which one of you is gonna knock me out of first place. I'm only up 5pts,and that's nothing in this game. NFL would take a week to catch, but this college game it's nothing. Doesn't look like a really hard week this week, I think it will come down to point assignment.

Oh, also, I think I'm going to try and snag a few mags with these deals that are on right now. That way those are out of the way regardless of how any panic might go. If anyone cannot have a 30rd shipped to their state , but can have a 20 or a 10, please let me know, and I will order one of those as well in case you win. Of course we can substitute something else as well. I'd rather give Lancer my money but can't find a good deal.

Georgia better come around soon. That's the thing about Georgia. They can have a championship team and still manage to give one away. That Michigan State game looks rough too. Looks like I was one of the few suckers that picked them.

Another week in the books, and another week of upsets. Don't forget to make your picks for the NFL games Sunday if you play that, and , there is still time to join, since on that one we drop the worst week. I will say, after this week, there will be no catching up. I will be locking this game tonight and the NFL game after game time. If anyone wants to join either, just IM me or post in the thread. You can still have fun, and if everyone decides to pitch in $5 per entry, we can do prizes for the first three places, so you may wind up getting something. Say two mags for the 1st place winner, and one mag for the 2nd and 3rd place. With just me doing the funding, I can only do the one mag per 1st place. If you guys agree to it, I'd like to get a vote on it, and have the money in by mid October at the latest, due to election scares we always see. I'm probably going to go ahead and order the two first place mags this weekend to get them out of the way while there are good deals out there, and I need a couple of more mags myself.

So, now to the winner of the week, drum roll please.................

Congrats to Bayou Shooter, who got an amazing 47 points. Last week he got 46. He's a chance to win this if he keeps picking that high.

Leader at the end of this week's festivities, you're lovable , friendly neighborhood Pavlovwolf with 167 points. I lost more games than I won, but luckily for me, I did win my high point games. WarDamn MT /Iburgwin's 160points pulled into second place, with Hoss/Omega Man rounding out third with 156 points.

So the stats are as follows.

Yeah, you climbed a mountain this week. Dang. I had 2nd place beat by about 7 points and figured this week couldn't possibly be as weird as this week. But FSU losing, again, and at home, and to UNC Tarholes? History from the 80s on tells us that it was not really a remote possibility.

Link Posted: 10/2/2016 12:50:36 AM EST
Now that I've gotten over my vicious ousting from first place to third, here are the results as they currently stand.

Congrats to WarDamnMT for beating even the second closest player this week by 11 points. 43 points this week.

For the season so far, WarDamnMT's steady performance and his skill has put him on top , with 203pts, Hydrostat 2nd with 183pts, and myself, falling to 3rd, with 179pts. Both warDamnMt and Hydrostat have been consistently in the high 38s to mid 40s each week. Hydro is always a fierce competitor, year after year, but, a challenger has emerged.

Anyway, this just shows how fast things can change.

Here are the standings.

Get your picks in for tomorrow and good luck.

Also. If you would like to donate a few bucks towards prizes you can. I'm still doing the two for the winners, and will next year as well, but I'd like to do something for 2nd and 3rd. What I'm asking is $5 per entry per contest, so if you only do this one, $5, but if you do both, $10. You can donate more if you'd like. Just IM me and I'll give you my address. I want to try and do two mags for the winner, and one for the 2nd and 3rd in each contest.

Again, it isn't mandatory this year, but I have a couple that have donated now, so I just want to bring it up.

Next year I will make it mandatory for $5 per entry so I can offer more prizes. I think the game will be more fun that way, and it's really a small amount.

Just think, for only .50¢ per week, you too can support a gun nut.
Link Posted: 10/11/2016 2:50:32 PM EST
Somehow I posted this in the NFL game. My brain isn't always fully operational, it's sort of like the death star.


Alrighty then, another week in the books. A little movement here and there, and an increase in the lead all happened this week.

I apologize for being late in posting the update. Sometimes I have real bad days and while I will be on here posting some things, and reading , doing anything that takes concentration is nearly impossible.

Our star picker this week is WarDamnMT , again. lol He's been on his game. 42 correct pts this week. BayouShooter was 2nd with 40 pts.

So, here is the current leaderboard.

WarDamnMT is 1st with 245, Yours truly in 2nd with 216, and Hoss /Omegaman in 3rd with 214.
