FGOTG 2010-2011 (rules/results)



Congrats to 2009/2010 winner Srednalsi!

Quote:
The first time you visit the site (www.fgotg.com), you will need to register on the site. So that it is easier for everyone to know who everyone else is, please register with the same name that you use here on HF. From there on out, you will just log in to make your pick for every game and the site will keep score and have standings. There might be some tweaking to the site over time, so please be patient with E_Godard, who is doing this for no cost and on his own time. If you have any questions, please reach out to me via PM. I think this is going to be great for everyone involved. The site rocks!!!


************************************************** *******************************


The rules to this game are simple. You get two picks, one of them can be any player on the team including the top 5 goal scorers. The other one is your dark horse pick (whole team excluding the top 5 goal scorers). This "dark horse" player is typically the guy who's not so likely to pot the first goal of the game. The list of ineligible dark horse picks are as follows.

Kyle Okposo
John Tavares
Matt Moulson
Mark Streit
Doug Weight

Pick your goal scorer and your dark horse, and cross your fingers! Points are awarded as so:
Four points awarded if you are the first person to pick a player as a dark horse.
Three points awarded if you pick a player as a dark horse.
Two points awarded if you are the first person to pick a player as your normal pick.
One point awarded if you pick the goal scorer with your normal pick.
An extra point if you guess the situation the goal was scored in correctly (Even Strength, PP, SH, Penalty Shot) .

I'd like to remind everybody that this game is open for everybody to play. Regardless of your favorite team or if you've never attempted to play before. The only thing about it is, you have to pick an Islanders player to score. The opposing team doesn't count.


Please note that once the game has started, no more picks will be allowed.

In the case of a shutout, no points will be awarded.

Please sticky this.

Also wanted to say Srednalsi has yet to recieve last years prize. I wanted to award a game at the very end of the season but he wasnt able to make it. So Im working on getting something for the start of this season instead. Im going to go thru the Dark Horse list just before we start and also modify any missing players.

Team list has been updated best I could for now. I will modify the darkhorse list after the first two weeks of play once I know for sure whos playing and who's sidelined.

Are you going to change the list of ineligibles now that Streit and Okposo are out?

Is it just me or have the scroll down menus been swapped around this year? I seem to recall that the darkhorse pick was on the right but now it's on the left? Doesn't matter of course but still...

Also, Trevor Smith is still on the list but he is now with Anaheim.

Looking forward to a good competition this year guys!!

I still can't believe I gagged such a huge lead last year. I was like 20 points up on everyone in mid january and I just tanked the rest of the way. ugh. I was like the Mets.

Dont worry about starting late. You can go the first 3 months without a point then turn around and beat everyone out in a matter of 3 weeks.

Anyone else getting this message? It isn't letting me make any new picks. Whatsup with that? It's happening on all of my browsers.
