5) Week 17 has NO Monday night game. We will use the Sunday night game (NY Jets-Cincinnati) for the total points tiebreaker in Week 17. In the Week 15 notes, it was thought there was no Sunday night game and another game would be used as the tiebreaker.
6) The selecting deadline is Sunday at Noon for Week 17.
7) Regular Season Winners: Packers-155. Regular Season Losers: Giants-179; Eagles-155.
8 ) LAST PLACE RULE-You must select in Week 17 to “win” the $250 Last Place prize. Alitan & Antunesn are not eligible for this prize since they have 3 non-selecting weeks.
9) The Pro Playoff Contest rules will be posted by January 3rd. There are 164 eligible Guppies (see Participant List) who may compete. There is $1,650 in prize money since Boynton Beach Dad joined after the season began. Prize money will be announced at a later date once Office Pool expenses are determined.
10) 2nd Page Dennis will be away from January 3-10 so there will be a delay in the posting of Week 17corrections and the posting of Week 17 notes. He will have email access if you have any questions. Since Week 17 ends on January 3rd and the BCS Championship ends on January 7th, December monthly prizes and annual prizes will not be mailed until January 22.
11) College Bowl Contest Update-This year, we allowed College Bowl eligibles to make selections after the start of the 1st Bowl game with omitted games considered a loss. For most of the contest, the most omitted was two games. Since there is also a last place prize, we forgot to consider what would happen if someone entered late and finished with the most losses. As a result, the Board has decided that anyone who omitted more than two games in selecting is not eligible for the last place prize.
12) A HAPPY & HEALTHY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF OUR GUPPIES AND THEIR FAMILIES!!!!!
