For the 2009-10 Gridiron Guppies season all selections will be made on the website:
The Guppies executive staff have worked closely with the site to customize the league settings so that there are little to no changes from previous Guppy seasons. This format will allow for real time standings and the elimination of human error (although Dennis and Mike have a pretty flawless track record). We selected this site after a thorough search using the same background checks Notre Dame used for George O’Leary. This site has an exemplary track record of keeping users information 100% PRIVATE and we are also provided a representative who oversees our league and can handle any issues that may arrise. We will post answers to any questions we get about the site on GridGuppy.com, thanks!

Welcome to the 2009 Gridiron Guppies!!
To make your weekly selections just click on the tab that says picks at the top of the page, and select the box of the team you wish to pick. The spreads will always have a .5 to ensure there are no ties. The tiebreaker for best week is the total points in MNF which you will enter at the bottom of your picks. You will be able to access standings in a variety of formats as well as a breakdown of picks by the different Guppy members.
Important Note: We felt that it is finally time for the Guppies to enter the 21st century, it is hard to comprehend the amount of tedious work that Dennis and others put in each week entering every selection into an excel spreadsheet and going through each entry game by game to ensure their accuracy. With this technology available it would be foolish not to take advantage of this platform that will allow the Guppies to operate in a streamlined fashion.
HOWEVER, it is very important to all of us who have been involved with the Guppies for over two decades that we do not lose the personal touch that has made this the finest football pool in the land! The GridGuppy.com site will be updated several times a week with news, notes and nuggets across the Guppy and NFL landscape. As always, we will make ourselves available for any questions or concerns you may have with your picks or the way the league is being run. We really appreciate your patience as we make this transition, and who knows maybe we can get Dennis on Twitter by next season! Thanks and remember the lords of wagering save their wrath for those who count their money at the half!
