The BC Grand Champion is nothing more than a guy (or gal) (or a gay guy or gal) that can hit the bonanza on Super Bowl Sunday. You can earn 13 points over all 11 play off games and 23 points in a drunken stopper Super Bowl Sunday. All the hard work picking winners all year and all the hard work picking play off games don't mean squat. Your better off if you can luck (and I mean luck) into picking the team that scores first, picking the team that scores last, picking the fricken coin flip, picking who has the lead at halftime, all while picking your nose. Let me pick the scoring system next year. It will be logical and well thought out. It will also reward the best handicapper.

* This has been a paid political announcement by the "let =SA= decide the scoring system next year" committee


Playoffs
GameDay Posting Deadlines and Incomplete Parlay rules apply throughout the playoffs.


Wildcard Weekend, 1st Round

*
Best Bet = 1 point each. Select four Best Bets, one from each of the four games.
*
Parlay = 1 point. Select three teams in any combination.

Divisional, 2nd Round

*
Best Bet = 1 point each. Select four Best Bets, one from each of the four games.
*
Parlay = 1 point. Select three teams in any combination.

Conference Championships, 3rd Round

*
Best Bet = 1 point each. Select two Best Bets, one from each of the two games.
*
Parlay = 1 point. Select one team and one over/under in any combination.


Super Bowl

*
Best Bet = 2 points. Select the point spread winner.
*
Over/Under = 2 points.
*
Best Bet and Over/Under = 2 points. Independent selection in any combination.
*
Straight-up Winner = 2 points. Select the outright Super Bowl Champion.
*
Straight-up Winner and Over/Under = 2 points. Independent selection, any combo.
*
First team to score = 2 points.
*
Team with halftime lead = 2 points. In the event of a tied score, no points awarded.
*
Last team to score = 2 points.
*
Coin Toss = ½ point (one-half point).
*
MVP = 2 points
*
Super Bowl Participants = 2 points. The two teams you selected in the preseason.
*
Super Bowl Winner = 3 points. The team you selected in the preseason.

Here's my idea for a bookie challenge. And it really would be a "bookie challenge".

We all get 1500 or 2000, or however many play chips deposited into our account once our "chips" are received by the quantum magician. That would give us access to our "account", where we could place our wagers each week.

No rules on the wagers. There's parlays, over/unders, and straight bets. You can sit out a week, you can wager as much/as little as you like. Basically, no rules- it's your chips.

You can't see anybody else's picks until the games start on Sunday (all bets are closed).

Final "chip" distribution is simple- whoever has the most play chips at the end, wins 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.

Now that's a Bookie Challenge.

Now the real question:
Who knows how to program in Java and has lots of time on their hands?

Just stating the obvious and it's all factually based wink

Never figured it would get anyone to make changes even though they are warranted. Guess I better hone up for the Super Bowl "crap shoot". Hey, maybe we can add one of those cards where you put money on a box and earn points every quarter. That would really add to the festivities on Super Bowl Sunday painful_lol

LOL, it's called the 2007 BC challenge and the only points that matter are in 2008. I propose we change it to the 2008 BC Challenge cowboy

The BC Grand Champion is nothing more than a guy (or gal) (or a gay guy or gal) that can hit the bonanza on Super Bowl Sunday.

Wrong, SA. The BC Champ is the player who can handle the postseason pressure, step their game and perform in the clutch. The more points you have going into the SB, the greater your chances of being crowned. Eight players had 6 or more points heading into SB 41. Who had a better chance of winning....them.....or you. Think of the 3 playoff rounds as trying to give yourself as much advantage as possible heading into the Game that decides the King.
You can earn 13 points over all 11 play off games and 23 points in a drunken stopper Super Bowl Sunday.

If you can go perfect on Super Bowl Sunday, including the preseason SB picks, then you are a bad ass who deserves every point, and the Crown.
All the hard work picking winners all year and all the hard work picking play off games don't mean squat.

I agree with you halfway. You're right about the regular season.....it has nothing to do with the post season. The regular season is about winning your division, recouping your Chips and claiming bragging rights. But you're wrong about the playoff games.....those points that you rack up leading up to the SB are critical because each point you have increases your chances of winning it all.
Your better off if you can luck (and I mean luck) into picking the team that scores first, picking the team that scores last, picking the fricken coin flip, picking who has the lead at halftime, all while picking your nose.

Ain't Vegas a bitch. Ever hear of Proposition Bets? I have, and that's why I decided to include them in the Super Bowl. The bets you mentioned above are Proposition Bets and are legitimate wagers. Wanna be a Champ, SA? Got Game?? Then how about you show us some REAL GAME instead of your TWO POINT WET DREAMS (2-9-0) lol
Let me pick the scoring system next year. It will be logical and well thought out. It will also reward the best handicapper.
I'll tell you what, SA......if you can show us some clutch handicapping in Prime Time, finish in the top 3, then your ideas will carry more weight. But right now you're not exactly coming from a position of strength. So this January and February, take off the dress, load up your jock strap and MAN UP!!! rambo

Going 2-9-0 ain't gonna cut it!! sucks

Well it is mainly a candle lighting thing for 8 days and reading.

But eating latke's is a traditional thing (potato pancakes with applesauce or what ever you like) and I have a lamb chop or two and maybe a half glass of kosher blackberry wine angel

But I still act like I'm a youngster playing basketball and try to never eat like fat guys do so I only eat a little bit.

Well maybe when I'm about to turn 70 I won't mind looking like I am over the hill and get a big steak eatin' belly on me!

(I would eat a few more beef steaks and burgers if it was summer and I could get outside and do something to burn the calories)

Must be that basketball player thing about me........I am Magic not that fatass Shaquille that could only back over players and dunk on them and act like that was some sort of talent.


But then if they payed me millions to be a fatass I would have to rethink that a bit smile

SA, get over it bro...high blood pressure is not a good thing at your age! haha hammerhead

If you want to go back, JUST to last year, where yours truly won it, look at my playoff record LEADING UP to the SB weekend. That's right, my friend, I was leading the pack (tied I believe), which means I was on a roll. I was hot, and stayed hot to take the Championship.

Do you have what it takes? Do YOU?!?!?!?!?!? I have my doubts, as you can't even win the damn division and you are whining about the Playoffs???!

Get off your ass so we can spank these twinkies we call "rookies" and then whine about the playoffs!

As for prop bets...Every time I go to Vegas for the SB, I have 8 pages to sift through as far as prop bets, and I always find ONE that is a great bet to take.

Did you know they have a SB prop bet school you can go to leading up to the SB??? BWWWWHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA There are suckers born every minute.
