    Game Rules Etc.

    If you are new to the game just follow the herd and you will catch on quickly. The person who can closest predict the total weekly attendance added from each of the absolute values from each game, IE the lowest score, will be declared the winner. Please submit your answers numerically; an answer such as “sold out” will be counted as 0. I will continue to present the games in the standard American way, Visitor @ Home Team for now. If this bothers you so much that you feel the need to lecture me about how it is properly displayed in other countries you should get your life priorities in order. Have fun and enjoy. Guesses for all of the week’s games are due by game time of the week’s first game.

    After some suggestions and limited discussion I have decided that I am not going to change anything about the game except awarding points to the top 15 players instead of 10. 15 points will be given to the weekly winner instead of 10 and 5 more players each week will receive points.

    All new players are welcome and a player can jump in and out any week. Edwardgr and TopDogg are examples of players who have had strong showings after joining the game later on in the season. Points will tally throughout the season and the player with the most weekly points will be declared the season champion, so the player who plays more often will have an edge. A player may change his/her guesses anytime before the week’s first match. Please make sure you let your change known. Most players quote their old guess and post new ones with a message like “changing my @ Vancouver pick to 21,000.”

    this week’s games


    Philadelphia at Kansas City
    New York at Philadelphia
    New England at Montreal
    DC at Chicago
    San Jose at Portland
    Vancouver at Salt Lake
    Houston at Colorado
    Toronto at Columbus
    Chivas at Dallas
    Seattle at Los Angeles





    Guesses are due by 8:30pm Eastern on Wednesday October 24th. As always all newcomers are welcome to play.

    Protest . . . ? What's the rule on this?

    (And for full disclosure, I caught Revolt's similar mistake last week cuz it was right above mine. I didn't see this one until after the deadline had passed. Also, you left the "t" out of "United." Gosh.)

    The rule is that I try to take what is meant. But you are subjected to my interpretation, so if I see 15.00 (and it happens way more often than you'd think I bet). I make it a 15,000 be happy with that even if you meant 15,025, simply because it could have been 15. Oh course, I always assume sedlie “meant” it to be the completely wrong guess.
    sedlie and Shopping Cart Man repped this.

    Understood. I thought I remembered the rules saying something against it but I could never find it--obviously because said rule existed solely in my fabricated memory.

    On a side note, that's the last time I'm holding Chivas in good faith.

    EDIT: Even the Chivas game wasn't enough to bridge the gap. You picked well last week, firefan.
