    Games Official Esksfans 14th Annual (2018) CFL Pool Thread - With Prizes!

    Hey all,

    We're back again, beginning another CFL season, which of course exists in order to provide scores for the CFL Pool, which coincidentally starts on the very same day. Prizes again will be offered, to the top two finishers!

    Rules

    The pool works as follows: pick the winners of the games, and scores. That's it. For every game, you get:

    * 2 points for picking the winner.
    * a bonus point for getting the exact score for one of the two teams.
    * a total of 3 bonus points if you hit the final score precisely for both teams.

    The pool will run until the end of the Grey Cup game.

    Prizes

    It's a lot of fun, and mostly harmless. The top 2 based on total points will receive 1 item of their choosing from the esksfans.com shop: http://www.esksfans.com/forum/shop.php

    In the event of a points tie for 2nd place, the first tie breaker is "Wins". If still tied, we will have a random draw or flip a coin or have a 3rd party pick a number between 1 and 10 or whatever silly tie-breaking method I decide.

    Access

    To get to the pool from the site's main page, click "Forum" on the green menu bar. Then, on the yellow menu bar, click "CFL Pool". From there, you'll figure it out.

    All the regular season games have now been entered, so predict as many as you want now. I'll be sending out weekly reminders a couple of days before each week's games.

    Good luck!

    Cheers, Glen VB

    I was in the race last year until I went Stone Cold (but not in a cool wrestler way) during the last month...will put the pool on the new Edmonton Sports subreddit I helped create to try to get a few more players for you and for site.

    OK, first week's results are in, and many of us are Nostradamuses.

    Six people picked all four winners: Budha, DDS, piz, Evil Dr Len, naf, and cmbuk. But Budha, DDS, and piz all got a bonus point...so, for now, they're our three leaders!

    Week 2 games are coming up, everyone...get your picks in!

    And, following naf, be sure to channel your inner Nostradami.

    Absolutely....when sask lose it’s all good, also assumed a lot might take Ottawa sask might sneak it.. I also have a feeling the east ain’t gonna win more than 1 game this week and I will always bet on the esks..

    Surprised how many people chose the Greenwhites to be honest. Think there is still some Chris Jones hangover where Esks fans think he is as good as he thinks he is.

    Either way, a Sask loss is just about as good as an EE win.

    My first L comes at the hands of the Eskimos. For shame.

    Whoa...I'm in shock.

    After week 2, sitting alone at the top of the table... OK14!

    With the Esks' loss, all of us have fallen from grace at least once. Piz is the only other person at 7-1. There's a massive six-way tie for third place, including eskfan152, 3rd & Long, DDS, budha, Eskiman, and me.

    Can we catch OK14, or will we live in his shadow all season long?
