Football Pick em and the MMRF

It’s just about football season.  Excitement is in the air.  I’m super confident that this is the year the Vikings win the Super Bowl.  You heard it here first.

I’ve created a football pick em league this season. Each week, you simply pick who you think the outright winner of each game will be. No point spread. You do assign a confidence ranking… typically 16 to 1, with 16 being highest confidence.   Buy in is $50.  Half of the funds collected go the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, obviously an organization that is quite important to me.  The remaining funds go to weekly winners as well as season ending top 10.  I can’t say how much until we have everyone signed up. My goal is 100 participants.

You’re invited to play.  It’s fun, for a good cause and you can win some money.   Instructions for joining are below. Feel free to share with anyone who might be interested.

You are now ready to participate in Pro Football Pick'em. Your goal is to earn more points than other people by selecting the winner of each of this year's games.
Thanks for joining. Good luck.

  1. I'm in! I don't do the fantasy football thing; I'm a real fan and don't need that to stay interested. Plus takes too much time. This sounds perfect! Not as much of a time commitment, but still some skill involved.How do you use the 1-16? Each game assigned a different number?
