Prediction League Rules
The dafc.net Prediction League
Well after an eventful last season I’m sure we will be thankful that we actually have a team to follow despite dropping down a league. However this will bring new challenges in predicting the form of teams we are generally not all that familiar with. Last season`s champion and blagging rights went to DJAS with a healthy score of 714, but he was kept pretty honest till the last game of the season and only just pipped dafc by a single point. However will the king retain his crown for the season 2013/14?
I wish to extend a warm welcome to all last years participants and any new faces to this seasons Prediction League. lets see who will earn the blagging rights for next season. As before I will endeavour to have the fixtures up in advance, post reminders before games on the football forum and to have all the scores updated ASAP (usually the same day). So are you feeling lucky check out the rules below and join in! I’ll post the fixtures shortly.
This is the important bit. Essentially they are the same as last years and the year before that etc etc!
The competition is supposed to be fun and it’s free!
All entries must take place before kick off or they will not be counted
You are free to edit your predictions up to the kick off time. If your late then tough!
All predictions must be made via the appropriate dafc.net prediction league thread. Proxy entries can be made on behalf of others, but must be indicated they are doing so. I can’t take any predictions on any form of social media unless they are entered via the PL forum.
If you make the mistake of making multiple entries, I will only count the last set of predictions and treat them as an “edit”.
You will be allocated 5 jokers where you can double your score on any single prediction. If you are lucky you might score 20pts. However if you score 0pts, tough - thats why its a Joker!
To play your Joker please indicate “Joker” or “J” after your prediction ie:
* Pars 2 Rangers 0 Joker
I’m not infallible and will occasionally make the odd ballsup. If you spot a problem with your scores, let me know and I will amend them - if I agree! Ohh and if there are any other problems, I will act as adjudicator!!
The scoring, (This seems complicated, but its not!)
* Correct score 10pts
* Right result, but wrong score 5pts
* Right score by team 2pts
* I have screwed up my prediction 0pts
So if you predict:
* Dunfermline 2 Rangers 0, and the result is 2-0 Your score is 10 pts, (Correct score)
* East Fife 1 Arbroath 1, and the result is 2-2 Your score is 5pts (Right result, but wrong score)
* Forfar 1 Brechin 3, and the result is 1-0 Your score is 2pts (Wrong result, but correct score for Forfar)
* Ayr Utd 2 Airdrieonians 1 and the result is 2-0 Your score is 7pts (correct score for Ayr Utd & right result)
* Stenhousemuir 2 Stranraer 1 and the result is 1-3 Your score is 0pts (Suffer the ignominy!)
And remember if you add a Joker to any of these predictions your score is doubled!
Just to rub it in the ignominy of the “facepalm” award will be given to the few who score a blank after all we all love a laugh at the misfortunate
Good luck for 2013/14. Bring it on!
