Definitely last minute, because that's just me, but I thought it might be fun to try this here. Basically, it's a game to predict the winners each week in MLS, with a specific scoring system, that lasts the whole year. I've played in the past on BigSoccer, and it was a lot of fun until the gentleman compiling the results just bailed on it in August '12 (of course I was winning). Anyway, here is the point system.
Correct winner or draw - 1 point
Correct winner and goal difference - 2 points
Exact result - 3 points
Some examples. Say you pick United to win 3-1, and they do. You will receive 6 points, it is cumulative. If you pick United to draw 1-1, and they do, you will get 4 points, the goal difference will not be awarded in case of a draw. If you pick United to win 4-2, and they win 3-1, you will receive 3 points because of the correct winner and goal difference.
Pretty easy. Also, there will be at least one game every week designated for double points and I'll throw in other games of interest (CCL, Open Cup, World Cup, European matches) from time to time to spice it up.
Please put your entries into the comment section of this post, and format it so it looks as close to mine as possible (my post in the comments section will be the one to go by). Every week I will tally the points results and list them along with the next week's games. If you make it to the end, and are the winner, understand that being a badass is its own reward. Believe me, I know. Here goes!
