Best Damn Capper Rules

*** Scoring change ***

After 17 successful contests we making minor change to the scoring. Instead of units you will get 1 point for a win, 1/2 if tie and 0 for a loss. So passing will become a thing of the past but you can if you want. We just decided to try this way this year and see how it plays out.


Welcome to our 17th annual season long NFL best damn handicapper contest. Please read the rules.

Please register in the below thread
Best Damn Capper - Registration


Standings will be posted in below thread
Best Damn Capper - Standings

Please use this thread for Rules, Questions & Answers only. All other posts will be moved or deleted.

• You must be registered in the Cappers Mall forums
• Contest will start with the first reg season game and end with the last regular season game
• Only NFL plays (sides and totals) will be allowed
• Each contestant can select three plays per week.

• I will allow plays to be posted to me privately as an option DURING FINAL WEEK which I will post private picks at the deadline. These picks will be posted when games tip off for the final week.
• Only plays entered in the correct contest thread will be counted. You may only post once per week. Use all three of your games in one post. The deadline for posting picks is 1:00 PM Sunday.

• Scoring - one point per win, 1/2 per push, 0 per loss
• This contest will be the regular season only
• Threads will be started for the week every Thursday and lines will not change. Everyone will use the same lines

]You MUST post the team name clearly (avoid abbreviations) with the listed odds posted with your pick. The weekly deadline for picks in this contest is 1:00 PM EST and all picks must be made at same time.


• Cappers Mall and/or scorekeeper will be the official judge of this contest.
• Each week will end after the Monday Night football game of the week.
• Standings will be kept weekly and will be posted every Tuesday
• If you select a game where the line has not been posted yet - you agree to whatever line ends up being posted. This may not be changed.

The lines are posted and do not change. Some times you may get a better line or maybe a worse line depending on when you play. This part will not change. In the event there is a huge event that changes line significantly (example Aaron Rodgers out on Saturday). This will be solely my call and will not be the case in most situations. As in past years there is stale lines but we will fix these rare situations when line is really out of whack.


PRIZES

First place - Choice between PlayStation 4 Slim - 1TB or Xbox One - w/ Madden (Console does not come with Madden. I will throw in Madden if still available. Console retails over $400. + 25,000 Reward Points

Well you starting with zero points. I am not going to say that someone hasn't started with zero wins week one before and went on to win the contest however in past it would count as a pass. Since we changed the format this year it would put you at a disadvantage to start late. Saying that it's only 3 games (points) per week and it's not out of the question.

Hope that makes sense

Okay, thanks for clearing it up. I could have swore that it was like your best 14 weeks out of 17 weeks or something like that. but I'm probably wrong...in way too many contests lol

Go to the PM help forum on the bottom of the forum screen and send a message to Jack. Send 2 messages, you won in Bingo as well.

Don't forget for next year to participate in threads, so you can get the full prize amount. Congrats again!
