    Default 2015 Dark Tower Football Pick Contest - Come Reap!!!

    The season begins THURSDAY, September 10, 2015. NO late registration!!!!

    How to Play

    1. Itís simple. Click on the following link and it should take you to the ESPN pigskin pickem site. If you donít have an ESPN profile, you will have to set one up. Trust me, itís worth it!!!! If you joined in on the other ESPN contests earlier this year, that profile will work. In fact, as a bonus to joining us in the Pigskin picks, youíll be able to easily compete in other contests such as March Madness and College Bowl Mania (you might even win a trophy!).

    http://games.espn.go.com/nfl-pigskin...p?groupID=2043

    Click the red ďGet StartedĒ button and follow the steps to register in our group.

    Password: roland (all lower case) - please do not share this with non-members of this site.

    If you have questions about how to set things up in our group, post your questions and the community of folks here will try and help you out.

    2. The contest will begin with the first regular season game in Week 1. Only one entry per person in our group and it must be identifiable to me as a member on this board or you can PM me with your ESPN handle. Once the season has started the group is locked. This means that any latecomers will not be able to join (sorry about that!), so please get in early. Picks for week 1 can actually be made now!

    3. The contest will end at the conclusion of the regular season unless ESPN continues into the playoffs (which has not happened in the past). We can continue talking smack all the way through the playoffs, though!

    4. At the end of the regular season, whoever has the best Win/Loss record wins the coveted First Place trophy. We also award trophies for Second, Third, and a (much sought after, one of a kind, not available in any other contest) Last Place Trophy**

    Last yearís winners were:

    First Place - Spencer
    First Place - gersto

    Second Place - ELazansky

    Third Place - sharki69
    Third Place - RUBE

    Last Place Winner - Room 217 Caretaker

    **In order to qualify for last place, you need to pick every week, however, If you mistakenly miss picking one or two games (i.e. a Thursday or Saturday game), we can do the math and, with penalties, make adjustments. To be safe, just be sure to get IN THE GAME each week and make your picks early!!!!

    If you need ANY incentive, here is a sample of a few of the trophies given out over the last few years:









    Good luck everyone!!!

    In past year's, Bill does a "Bowl" version. Is that what you were thinking? A regular season version may be too unwieldy and time consuming. There are so many games each week in college ball.

    Ah, yes, the bowl one. That's right. I belong to another message board that does the yearly college picks, and I've just signed up there. So I'm good both ways.

    Yeah, I'd never try to wrangle a full-on college pick contest. Bowl Mania will be fun!
