Here is the thread to officially start the 10th Annual CCF NFL contest (wow it has been a decade already)! We are merely days away from the beginning of the NFL regular season. It has really crept up since there was no preseason this year. Here are the rules:

- pick 1 team every week
- each pick must be posted every THURSDAY by 6:00pm forum time
- once you pick a team you cannot pick that team again
- if your team wins, you continue in the contest
- if your team loses or ties you are OUT
- if you fail to make a pick on time or you pick a team you have already used, you are OUT
- once you pick there will be no editing; editing = OUT
- I will post a summary of each player who is eliminated each week
- as we get down to the last few players, if all remaining players are eliminated in the same week, then those same remaining players will be alive to continue the game as before (example; let's say 3 players are left in week 9 and they all lose that week, all three of them would come back to keep duking it out until we have 1 player left standing)
- last person standing gets a coin/currency related gift from all of the players (losers choice)

*** PLEASE READ: this year we have an extra COVID wrench thrown in. Hopefully this season goes all the way but with the pandemic you just never know what will happen. So to avoid an abrupt end to the season with no winner I will add an extra step so that we can crown a champion no matter what. Each week when you post your pick in this thread simply put the team you pick AND the amount you think they will win by. The difference between your guess and the winning margin will be figured each week and will be a cumulative total as the season goes on. These numbers will ONLY come into play if the season is shutdown for good. If the season ends before we have a champion we will take the remaining players and whoever has the lowest point total wins.
Example:
week 1: you pick Dallas to win by 10
if Dallas wins 13-7 then your point total would be 4 (you guessed 10 and they won by 6 so you were off by 4). These would be a running total for each week so the closer you are to the winning margin the lower your score will be.

We will take the first 15-20 players who respond to this thread and have 50 posts.

You may then post your picks in this thread each week.

** First pick will be due in 1 week, by Thursday Sept 10th by 6:00 pm**

Thanks for playing and good luck!

To be honest spaceace, after seeing the way baseball has gone, I have no doubts this season will get scrubbed, sooner than later.

Thank you for running 10 seasons, congrats. I enjoyed the last 3 as a player/donator, but I would be hypocritical if I played this season. This will shine some light on my choice.

It's not just the NFL, I'm done with the Raptors until they put their names back on their jersey's too, even then, they probably blew it for a while.

spaceace, sorry if I rained on your contest. It was not my intention. All the best to next year, and hey, how about those pic's from your win last year.

Very surprised and disappointed in this outcome.
NFL is playing games, and we have no pool. SAD!

I'm with the boys on this one. I'm not usually a big sports guy, but I enjoyed tuning into a game and munching some chips and salsa while I watched. This year, that ain't happening.

I know T and Greasy pretty well I'd like to think, and I'm sure we're all thinking the same on this one.

I got family and friends who've been severely injured in the line of duty. I had a friend who was serving as protecting for a protest when someone tried to stab him to death. I can't watch this season.

I watched the film "Greater" on Netflix today. It's based on a true story of a kid who just knew his destiny. His name is Brandon Burlsworth. Well worth the 2 hours to watch.
