CiCi’s Pizza – NFL Pickem Contest Live

We’re getting fancy and have a Web Application for this year’s contest.
The Link is at the Top of the Page:

Here’s the rules:
Basics

The concept of Greensboro Sports Dot Com’s CiCi’s NFL Pick ‘Em is simple: pick the winners of each game each week.

To enter, fill in the entry form by selecting the outcome of each game.

The player who accurately predicts the most correct winners each week gets a win. If two players share the winning score for a week, the win is determined by Total Points in the tie-breaker game. (In the event both, the Total Points are identical, the winner will be the individual, who made their tie-breaker comment the earliest.

The Tie Breaker Game will be listed on the Greensboro Sports Website, no later than Friday Noon.

The Tie Breaker Total Points must be entered as a COMMENT for that week, with the SUBJECT LINE: “TIE BREAKER”.

At the end of the football season the person who has the most weekly wins, is the winner. The final tie breaker is determined by who has the better overall pick ratio (correct picks / total picks).

Fine Print

Only one entry per email address / person.

Prizes are not redeemable for cash and may not be substituted.

Winners will be contacted by email to determine best way to deliver weekly prizes.

There are no restrictions regarding the number of weeks one person can win.

Contestants are responsible for checking their entries. REMEMBER, no selection is the same as a LOSS!

Problems with entries must be reported via email to the Administrator immediately. (Don’t forget the Administrator may be out watching the games on Game Day.)

Making and Changing Entries

When filling in an entry form, you do not have to make a pick for each game. This is helpful if there are early games scheduled for a given week (games played on a Thursday, Friday or Saturday). You may make your picks for these games beforehand and complete the rest later.

Games are automatically locked out on the entry form according to their scheduled date and time. Early games are locked at the start of the individual game. All remaining games (including the Monday Night Football game) are locked at the scheduled start time of the first Sunday game.

Note: all times displayed on the schedule are Eastern.

You may change your pick for any game up until the time that game is locked.

Entries must be completed on time. Once a game is locked, you may not change your pick for it. If you did not make a pick for a particular game, it is counted as a loss. If you submit a partial entry and either forget or are unable to complete it, the games you did not pick will count as losses.

If you have trouble accessing the site, logging in or completing your entry, please contact the Administrator for help. If you are unable to make your picks before they are locked out, the Administrator may enter your picks after the fact if the picks are communicated to the Administrator ahead of time.

Prizes

The weekly winner wins TWO (2) Buffet Diners at Greensboro area CiCi’s Pizza Restaurants.

Additional prizes may be added later.

If you have any questions, please contact the Administrator

    I seem to be having trouble logging back in.

    Says “ooops …..”

    followed instructions to reset password but still doesnt work.

    worked the first time through but no more. Anybody else?

  • Don Moore said,

    When you did the reset password, you should have received an email with a new password. You have to use that new password to log in – then you can go to “My Account”, where you can change your password back to what ever you need.

    Look in your SPAM folders for that email. My SPAM filter caught mine, when I tested the password reset feature.

  • Mick said,

    Yes, i received those emails and still a no go. I probably screwed something up somewhere.

  • Don Moore said,

    If you used SPACES in your name, the Program Replaces those SPACES with UNDERSCORE. So “Don The Man” becomes “Don_The_Man”.

  • Big C said,

    Very nice and colorful web app. Just wish I had known Thurs. game was going to be included in the picks. I am already -1 with the Thursday game missed cause I didn’t get the pick in. Oh well, like they say in NASCAR “I’ll get em next week”

  • Don said,

    You’re just down 1 game, no worse than my picks. I’ll be lucky if I get half right based on my strategy.

  • Big C said,

    Too, guess one should never say “never”.
