New year. New season. It all starts this week. Everyone's back on level terms - so don't miss out on the start of season 10 and the 2012 POTY race (see below).
Not too much happening to start things off, but we've got a few fights on the game-sheet with double-header action from cards televised by FNF and Shobox.
For those that haven't played before, welcome to the best pick'em game going. Please join right in and start playing (just make sure to check out the rules - we promise they are very simple).
An explanation of how to fill out your selections appears at the bottom of this post - please follow these instructions as it makes it easier for us to tabulate the results quickly each week.
As with last year, we will be the crowning of an overall winner at the end of 2012 (last year's winner was ulises solis). At the end of each 10 week season, the top 20 players will receive player of the year points, 15 for 1st, 13 for 2nd, 11 for 3rd, 10 for 4th, 9 for 5th, 8 for 6th, 7 for 7th, 6 for 8th, 5 for 9th, 4 for 10th, 3 for 11th-12th, 2 for 13-15th and 1 for 16th-20th . These point totals will be added together to determine the Pick'em Player of the Year.
